I love House! He is quite grumpy.

What about Colonel Sherman T. Potter? (C.O. of M.A.S.H. #4077)

Although she's not terribly grumpy, I've becomeing rather fond of Dr. Temperance Brennen (http://www.fox.com/bones/). Of course, she's a Ph.D., not an M.D.

Col. Potter, yes. Or Dr. Macy on Crossing Jordan (yes, he's an MD), which is essentially the same character he played on Twin Peaks, also a great character.

Dr. House, he is so frigging smart! (something bad happens to him next week I think)

Doctor Leonard 'Bones' McCoy?

Doctor (Battlestar Gallactica) Cottle?

My vote goes to Cottle....

Has to be McCoy. However, I do like the House character. (Boy, that guy's malpractice rates would be larger than the US's GDP!)

Gunsmoke's Doc Adams (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunsmoke)
...The radio series Doc was acerbic, somewhat mercenary, and at times, came close to being alcoholic. The television Doc, though crusty, was in many ways softer and warmer...

Am I the only person who can't really get into House? Also, am I the only person who watches Crossing Jordan?

Dr. John Becker beats all of the aforementioned for grumpiness, IMO.

Ok, i'm playing properly now, Quincy gets a vote from me.
He was well grumpy, but his patients never seemed to mind... :D

Definitely Dr. Col. Sherman T. Potter.

Voyager's Doctor is a distant second.

I second sarongsong's choice - Dr. Galen "Doc" Adams on Gunsmoke. I think a lot of the grumpy doctors that came later took valuable tips from his performances. I can imagine him saying, "Dammit, Matt, I'm a doctor, not a blacksmith!

The grumpiest loveable Doctor had to be Hartnell; Colin Baker was grumpier but he was not exactly loveable.
Hartnell did a fairly good impression of old Doc Adams in Gunsmoke too-
here he is...

Anyone that says: "I'm a Dr. not a bricklayer", or "I'm a Dr. not an engineer" gets my vote...Dr. McCoy.
