What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors, an explanation of how to increase your own score can be found by clicking through here.
The BBC’s long-running, science fiction television program, Doctor Who, celebrates its 50th anniversary on November 23. Even as recently as five years ago, this fact would hardly have registered a cleared throat outside of the U.K.; where the show has long been an institution. But, thanks to streaming video and cable television, a revamped version of the program, which launched in 2005, caught on globally, and now even in the states Doctor Who is a bona fide hit. (Check out the valiant effort, undertaken by fans, to see the anniversary honored in a spectacular fashion in NYC here.)
Excitement is mounting as a new trailer for November 23rd’s anniversary special — which is to be simulcast internationally — hit the internet this week. You can check it out here.
As for this list? Well, for plot reasons too convoluted to bore the uninitiated with, eleven actors have played the program’s title character during its run, with a twelfth — The Thick of It star, Peter Capaldi — assuming the role as of this Christmas. Below we’ve sorted and ranked these 12 men by their PeekScores; which is the number PeekYou assigns to every individual, and which measures the breadth and scope of his or her online presence, influence, and impact.
