In a way Doctor Who
(1963) is a strange role, because normally you don't have that comparison. The only other similar kind of roles are Shakespearean roles - you have good Hamlets and you have bad Hamlets, one's not as good as another and so on. It was a bit of a problem to deal with at first.
McCoy is technically the longest-serving Doctor after reprising the role in 1996. His term as the Doctor stretched from 1987 until 1996, a total of 8.5 years. No new work was produced by McCoy as the Doctor between 1989-1996 however, meaning that Tom Baker
is still the longest continuously-serving Doctor, at 7 years (1974-1981).
