The time has come for you to decide. Tell us who your favorite Doctor Who is for a chance to win a Doctor Who proof from, better known as BBC Books. Thanks to them for the chance to offer these prizes!

To enter this contest you have to post in this thread stating in a couple of sentences which Doctor Who is your favorite and why. For example:

William Hartnell (or "The First Doctor" or whatever gets your point across)
I only just started watching Doctor Who, and have seen the Hartnells, Troughtons and half of the Pertwees. Of the three Hartnell is my favorite, because he is the ultimate bastard operator from Hell.
Doctor Who: The Coming of the  Terraphiles

We will draw 3 winners randomly from all entries October 27, 2010. We hope that the winners will read the books straight away and blog, tweet or review the book at Amazon or any other place.

Doctor Who: The Coming of the  Terraphiles
With thanks to BBC Books, I am happy to announce that October brings us a number of Moorcock/Doctor Who related giveaways in the form of a few contests.

Contest #1: Tweet about Doctor Who contests at Moorcock's Miscellany

The purpose of this contest is to get the word out about other contests and of course Mike's new book The Coming of the Terraphiles. If tweeting isn't your thing, don't worry, there are a couple more contests that will have nothing to do with tweeting ahead this month. We are hoping to create a critical mass starting with Twitter.

To enter you have to tweet about the new book and our contests. Each tweet (or retweet) (one per day per account) is an entry. We pick three random tweets as winners after two weeks. A qualifying tweet looks like this:

The Terraphiles are coming! #moorcock #doctorwho Win a copy of Michael Moorock's new book at
Our three lucky winners will get one proof of Michael's new Doctor Who book.

This contest ended on October 19th, 2010.
Winners of the contest can be found in this thread.
