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!

It’s like asking you to pick your favorite air.

Because surveys are important.

This is such a good picture. Such a good one.

Second Doctor and Victoria

image: black-and-white behind the scenes photo of the Doctor Who serial ''Fury from the Deep'' featuring Deborah Watling and Patrick Troughton. They are outside, and out on the water. They are both wearing life jackets and Patrick is wearing a knitted bobble hat. They are both smiling at each other, and it looks like they are laughing together.

This is such a good picture. Such a good one.

"From the first (I think) ChicagoTARDIS con, although it had a different name."Back row: Ian Marter, Tom Baker, John Nathan Turner, Patrick Troughton (and beard), Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee and two people whom I cannot identify, but who are probably members of the crew. Front row: Janet Fielding, Elisabeth Sladen, Carole Ann Ford, Mark Strickson, Sarah Sutton, Louise Jameson, Mary Tamm and Nicola Bryant.

Doesn’t Ian look jolly? hehe. This picture is pretty epic though, considering everyone who is in it.

The Second Doctor trapped in a kind of machine that almost looks like he's having his space hair done and he's squeezing his eyes shut and making a really odd face and his mouth is all ((((( and it's kind of hilarious actually.
