(A) doubted that Troy had ever existed
sounds the best
(B) doubt that Troy has ever existed
wrong tense
(C) were in doubt as to the existence of Troy
sounds awkward
(D) were doubtful concerning Troyâ€™s existence
sounds awkward

For the same reason A.

Yeah I go with A

THe parallelism that is expressed by the person picking C is overridden by the wordiness and awkwardness of C

I discarded A on the basis of this:

There is little doubt that...
There is a doubt whether.....

When 'doubt' is used in negative sense, it is followed by 'that'
Otherwise it is followed by 'whether'

Please let me know what you think of it?
