eBay has compiled a list of the top 10 Doctors in order of merchandise sales.

Top of the list is Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor, whose 7 year run created enough memorabilia to outsell the other Doctors by 203%. 

The more recent Doctors, David Tennant and Matt Smith fall into 2nd and 3rd place, while Peter Capaldi is down in 10th place.

Here is the list of the top 10 Doctors in order of sales:

1. Tom Baker
2. David Tennant
3. Matt Smith
4. William Hartnell
5. Paul McGann
6. Patrick Troughton
7. Sylvester McCoy
8. Colin Baker
9. Peter Davison
10. Peter Capaldi

eBay spokesperson, Laura Wilkinson-Rea said: “It really speaks to Tom Baker’s iconic Doctor Who status that he continues to outsell the other Doctors. It also seems like the Universe is safe for now as the Doctors are far outselling the baddies.

“For example, ebay.co.uk currently lists 200,000 items of Doctor Who merchandise - totally dwarfing the Dalek’s 14,000. We’d be fascinated to see what spin Malcolm Tucker would put on this!”

David Tennant has shared his thoughts on Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor.

Speaking to Zap2it during the summer TV press tour, Tennant said: “I’m so excited to see him, and he’s been in touch a lot and had such a great time. His enthusiasm is infectious for it.”

Asked whether or not he’s seen any Series 8 episodes early: “No, I wouldn’t really want to,” he said. “Apparently it’s all leaked online, so it’s all available! But I haven’t. I wouldn’t know where to look, so I haven’t found it.”

David Tennant will appear in US series, Gracepoint later in 2014, and Doctor Who Series 8 will begin on Saturday, 23rd August on BBC One.

‘The Day of the Doctor’ was the most viewed drama on the BBC in 2013.

The 50th Anniversary Special was watched by an average of 12.8 million viewers on BBC One in the UK, with an additional 3.2 million requests on BBC iPlayer.

The 75-minute special was shown on TV in 98 countries and was broadcast in 15 languages. It also sold 649,138 cinema tickets in 25 countries.
