SFX Profiles all eleven Doctors, written by people close to the show.
This is a great read. Check out this bit by famed science fiction writer Stephen Baxter about First Doctor William Hartnell:

It was surely necessary that the Doctor had to be old in his first incarnation; that sense of age has always lingered. Even today a key part of Matt Smith’s reading of the role is that he is an old man in a young man’s body. And that agedness is rooted in Hartnell’s authoritative playing. My favourite single line of Hartnell’s actually came in tenth-anniversary special “The Three Doctors” when he berates his successors: “So you’re my replacements – a dandy and a clown. Have you done anything?”

h/t anglophenia!
