I like lots of males in books. I'm usually going for the not completely bad, but still not all that good guys. I thought about a lot of males. Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind was my first thought, but I think he was more a mix of Clark Gable and a guy in my head. The truth is, I generally like men in TV serieses more than in books. I connect better with the women in books.
So I picked a sort of halfway solution. After all, there are books on the Doctor as well as the series. He is undoubtedly my favourite male character of all time. His character inspires me, makes me think. He makes me want to be better. I often think he is one of the greatest characters ever created. Maybe that's because he wasn't just the result of one mind, but many writers adding to him. I know I'm gushing, but he really is that great to me.
