Doctor Who star Matt Smith has revealed that Patrick Troughton's second incarnation of The Doctor is his favorite.
Smith, who currently plays the Eleventh Doctor, explained that he loves the peculiarity that Troughton brought to the role.
"I love Patrick Troughton. [Troughton's 1967 serial] 'Tomb of the Cybermen' is one of my favorite stories. It's so creepy," he told Newsarama. "What I think is wonderful about Troughton is he's weird and peculiar but he never asks you to find him weird and peculiar. He was a great actor. And I think the Cybermen are as scary as they've ever been in that one story."
Troughton portrayed the renegade Time Lord from 1966 to 1969, facing Cybermen on a moon base and Yetis in the London underground along the way.
