Matt Smith's tenure was largely carried more by Karen Gillan. David Tennant has been by far the best doctor since Tom Baker. Still liked Smith far more than Capaldi. I felt like the show went into precipitous decline once they killed off Amy Pond. Bringing in Clara (Jenna Coleman) helped, but I liked her far better with Matt Smith than with Capaldi.

I think it a mark of how much better Tennant was than the other modern doctors (except John Hurt - he was excellent in that brief stint as the War Doctor) that even having boring companions didn't hurt the strength of his doctor. With Smith and Capaldi, I either liked their companion better than them, or didn't like their companion, and then stopped watching.
