 (Best Actor 2006)
1: David Tennant (39.96%)

Your Comments

David Tennant as The Doctor in Doctor Who "He's so versatile. His acting range has yet to reach an end - from making us believe he really is an old, tired and angry man in a younger man's body, to being excited and bubbly, to being compassionate but resolute. And so much inbetween. He makes you believe he is the character he's playing, and gives him such depth."
  • Gwyneth Brain, Bristol


  • "Such an instinctive actor with an amazing on-screen presence. His interpretation of the Doctor is spot-on."
  • Gavin MacLean, Norwich



  • Jonas Armstrong as Robin in Robin Hood2: Jonas Armstrong (13.25%)

    Your Comments

    "Brilliant as Robin Hood. He has brought a new dimension to an old character - witty, meaningful, and has great chemistry with the other characters, particularly Guy and Marian. He's proved he can play a variety of roles."
  • Vicky Shaw, Barnsley



  • Toby Stephens as Rochester in Jane Eyre3: Toby Stephens (10.49%)

    Your Comments

    "Perfectly cast as Mr Rochester. His superlative acting showed every aspect of this complex character in a sensitive and moving way. The last scenes with Ruth Wilson are unparalled in recent drama productions."
  • Anne Crabb, Essex



  • Richard Armitage as Guy in Robin Hood4: Richard Armitage (4.97%)

    Your Comments

    "Simply brilliant as Guy of Gisborne. Malevolent, brooding, cruel, but also tortured, passionate and deeply troubled. This is a villain with layers of backstory. Richard Armitage conveys his complexity with extraordinary subtlety."
  • Helen G, West Midlands



  • John Simm as Sam in Life on Mars5: John Simm (3.09%)

    Your Comments

    "His subtle portrayal of Sam Tyler as a man in turmoil made Life on Mars must-see television. I can honestly say that I cried along with him in several episodes."
  • Helen Taylor, Bath
