He hasn't supported his fan base in US very well. He came over a few times in the '80, but did tend to refuse to sign autographs and rushed people when he did. He relaxed a bit toward the end, but a few people at his first convention behaved badly, and he let it sour his perception of all of us. Hasn't been back since and probably doesn't want to travel so far at nearly 80.

His comment was rather crass considering the 3 Doctors before him. He'd also encouraged David and praised his performance in the press, so what's this "forget him" business all about? Why single out David, out of the other 10 Doctors? Methinks I catch a whiff of jealousy in the air.

So glad to hear that he's good to UK fans, at least.

I grew up on Tom Baker and he was my favorite Doctor all the way to 2005 when the series returned to the air. But having followed David Tennant as the Doctor while he was still actually playing the part means David is now my all-time favorite. Nothing against the rest as they are all supposed to be the same person, after all.
