BoP is on me.
I believe Peter Capaldi was the best actor to play Doctor Who.
All con has to do is prove that another Doctor was better.
No K’s please, this is a nerdy debate.

Torchwood was okay but I never really got hooked to it

Jack should have taken over the series or gotten a renewed spin-off.

Jack should have had a longer part rip

Also I'm completely cool with the Prisoner of the Judoon episode. Weird stuff with the Doctor having a hidden regeneration, or bumping into a potential future regeneration, I'm intrigued (plus Captain Jack!).

You didn’t miss anything other than a HORRIBLY rendered Dalek made from a trash can

Added:
--> @nmvarco

I did not see the Christmas episode with a Dalek. I only found out I had missed anything, after finishing a binge of the latest season; at which point, I had simply given up on the show until they get a new show-runner.

Enemy of the Judoon actually had a pretty good plot minus all the pc stuff, but that’s really the only good episode (maybe Ascension, but it got ruined by the finale). Looking forward to the holiday special with the Daleks, 13th doctor hasn’t really had a proper encounter with the daleks yet, except for that horribly rendered cgi Dalek last Christmas — oops I mean new year.

You only say that because you're living in denial of yourself being a secret past incarnation of The Doctor! This is a distinct possibly about every human being, as implied by Chibnall's /brilliance./

I admit I really liked his Dinosaurs in Space episode (stand alone, unseen companions to imply there's plenty of unseen adventures, the Doctor choosing to kill the villain), but when looking for a new show-runner for the first female Doctor, maybe they should have steered clear of the mind behind Cyber Bikini.

BBC: Hmm we need more diversity in doctor Who
Chibnall: What about if the doctor has been female and a minority infinitely many times?

While I disagree, that I might be over hyping it is a non-falsifiable statement.

Part of my appreciation for this episode, is that it was stand alone, being set a quarter of a million years in the future, so not trying to overwrite everything else.

The evolution of the episode is of note, as during pre-production they realized Matt Smith was capable of playing both roles (the doctor and the cyber-planner). Which resulted in a very fun game of chess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbB3MKRpn_s&feature=emb_logo

Sadly ideas therein were recently poorly recycled in a true disaster of an episode: https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/The_Timeless_Children_(TV_story)

Nightmare in silver was an overhyped disaster

If doing this again, I suggest including a couple links, such as to:
https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Third_Doctor
https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Twelfth_Doctor

Voters shouldn't have to Google pictures of the actors to think of this.

Personally, Matt Smith will probably remain my favorite. Mainly due to the superb writing throughout... Okay probably only the first half of his run... Still, multiple Neil Gaiman episodes!

K is a unit of temperature, Kelvin.

Because being a doctor/actor requires no specific amount of creation of heat or cold, K is not involved in this debate, unless you are talking about a specific surgery that Peter Capaldi performed using a substance in a temperature close to absolute zero.

I said no k’s

No, Peter Capaldi does not have a Doctorate on medical studies.
