Matt smith is better in many ways. although I do not have anything against David tenant I believe in every aspect that Matt smith is better. he is more funny and witty and goofy. he is great at having that tense relationship with a companion after rose, and he looks like he is having fun. he also talks really fast and he talks nonsense like the Dr is supposed to.

As an avid fan of Dr. Who, I would love to accept this debate. For the purpose and simplicity of the debate, David Tennant will hereby be DT, while Matt Smith will be MS.

I believe David Tennant is, rather was, the better to play the Doctor for many reasons:

1. DT put more emotion into his acting
2. DT more easily transitioned from a light, jovial style to a serious, solemn one
3. DT's features more accurately fits the description of the Doctor in the book series (facial shape, style of acting, dress, etc.)
4. While we can't hold this against the actors, the episodes of Doctor Who in which DT played were better than those of MS
5. DT filled the persona and uniqueness of the Doctor better than MS

All in all, all arguments in this debate will be based on opinions, not fact. However, I ask that all voters look at the debate on which side to vote on, rather their personally opinion.

I look forward to my opponent's response.

I ask that the voters please excuse my opponent for missing their argument. I'm sure it was a mistake, and ask that voter's look at the arguments rather than the number of speeches. In respect for my opponent, I will not enter new arguments into this debate in this speech. Please carry over all of my previous arguments. I look forward to my opponent's next speech.
