The Doctor's ninth incarnation was perhaps the most gritty, and informal, masking a lonely, guilt-ridden and melancholic personality with a jovial, witty, forthright and almost manic exterior. Similar to the Fourth Doctor, he would often make jokes in the face of danger, but then become grim and serious when on his own. Like the Sixth Doctor, he also tended to be fatalistic at times, to the point of near-panic when he and Rose were cornered in "The Unquiet Dead" and he realised that he was going to die (this despite the knowledge that he would probably just regenerate). Despite being impatient with humans, whom he often referred to as "stupid apes" -- and Mickey receiving particular scorn and being dubbed "Mickey the Idiot" -- the Ninth Doctor was far more tactile with, and reliant upon, his human companions than previous incarnations. He was notably both sentimental and emotional, especially where his closest friend, Rose, was concerned, to the point of allowing her to view her parents' wedding and later, her father's last moments this being just one example of his occasional lack of caution.

Nine was my first Doctor and so will always have a special place with me. Until recently I never thought he would be toppled but he is now on an equal par with Matt Smith. I loved the characterisation and the amount of mystery that surrounded him after so long off the air and the backstory of the Time War that they gave him. The way he went from angry to playful in the blink of an eye was brilliant and I would love to see him pop up again

I watched the Doctors in the wrong order: 11, then 10, then 9.  At first I didn't like 9 at all - he was mean!  But after a while he grew on me, his portrayal evolved, and now when I re-watch the first 'nu' season, I really enjoy the 9th Doctor.

I went 10, 9, 11. I originally thought 9 was okay, but now that I really think about it, I like his personality the best of the three new Who Doctors. Smith's has the strongest writing, 10's the most emotional, but as a person, 9 has it for me.
