Eoin Colfer on his choice of Doctors
One of the fantastic weapons in the Doctor’s arsenal is his ability to regenerate, and as such means we’ve been blessed with 11 different versions of the Doctor. But for my story, I wanted to go back before regeneration, where there was just the First Doctor and Susan. I picked Number 1 – William Hartnell, because I found his personality to be very close to mine; he’s a little bit grumpy, I’m a little bit grumpy, he doesn’t really like running around and I don’t blame him! I chose William Hartnell, the slow and grumpy Doctor.
