  1. My favorite episode is “Vincent and The Doctor”. I love this episode because it really showed how you can’t change everything. You can also kind of see what the Doctor has to deal with. Its hard to not be able to save someones life because it will change the future. Also you also get to see what Vincent had to go through and its heartbreaking.
    “I wouldn’t say that. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”-The Doctor

  2. I really had to think about this! I’m going to have to go with Blink. I had nightmares about the weeping angels for days. + Wibbly wobbly timey wimey spacey wacey is probably the best way ever to describe time travel (and fun to say).

  3. Blink because it added my favorite of the new era baddies to the fandom. I can never walk through a statue garden again…

  4. Maybe I’m just getting sentimental in my old age, but Vincent and the Doctor is sweet, and reminds us that the Doctor still has hope for us even if you can’t always change time.

  5. Aagh…I guess from the new series, I’d have to say “A Good Man Goes to War”. There are bits that are overwrought, but two things stick out for me. First, the line, “A good man doesn’t need rules.” really embodies the modern Doctor to me; honestly, it gives me the same feeling as Sylvester McCoy’s incarnation. The Doctor is only a personal rule or two away from being the Master. He lies, he kills, he does all those things — but there is a line. I think the Reason Hurt’s incarnation doesn’t “deserve” the name of the Doctor is that he crosses that line.

    Secondly, it’s got Rory delivering threats in full Centurion gear with exploding ships in the background. I love it when a character gets his/her Crowning Moment of Awesome.

  6. My favorite episode is “The Angels Take Manhattan” why? Because I cried when Rory got zapped away, and then Amy too. I love Rory!!!

  7. There are many moments I love, but “The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe” is one of the most memorable. I missed this episode my first time through watching the newer seasons, and I ended up watching it just after having a baby. Already an emotional wreck, the saga of this woman who helped the Doctor once, then lost her husband, and then was trying to protect her kids, well, I was sobbing. It hammered home the importance of family and friendship, two things I highly value myself.

  8. My favorite by a hair is “The Angels take Manhattan” over “The Wedding of Riversong”. I have to admit that of 30ish years of watching the Doctor, Amy and Rory are my favorite companions. I thought it was an excellent way to go out.

  9. Hard decide. I think The End of Time might be my fave. Liked the extra infoinfo on the Time War, and, of course, the end of 10’s run.

  10. My favorite episode was probably Let’s Kill Hilter. I thought it was hilarious when Rory had to put Hitler in a closet and it was cool that we saw Mels regenerate into River Song.

  11. Picking a Favorite episode is like trying to pick a favorite child… it’s hard to do…

    One of my all time most favorite episodes is ‘School Reunion’. To see The Doctor’s face light up when he sees Sarah Jane Smith (played by the lovely Elisabeth Sladen) for the first time since he left her way back in Season 14 is absolutely magical… I mean here is David Tennant seeing a companion, one of his favorite companions from his childhood, in person. It’s one of the best moments. Not one that routinely shows up in the entirety of a show. It was a wonderful surprise for both Whovians and the actors themselves. It also features K-9 and the ever so awesome Anthony Head… It really is a great episode.

    (Reposting from original contest post on Monday with updated information, since previously there was no contact info linked to my post.)

  12. I am fond of Destiny of the Daleks mainly because of the intrigue between the Movellans and the Daleks.

  13. The Snowmen. I loved Matt Smith’s withdrawn and cranky Doctor. I really liked Amy and Rory but after seeing this it made me wish they had left sooner. I really enjoyed seeing the changes in the Doctor since Amy and Rory left. The stairway in the sky to the Tardis was beautiful. This introduction to Clara and her mystery was great. And the Snowmen were great creepy villains.

  14. This is a difficult one, but I would say of the classic episodes Tomb of the Cybermen. Of the new ones, I do really like Vincent and the Doctor, but also Pandorica Opens. I think Vincent and the Doctor wins out because I think the message itself is important. You can’t always change time.

  15. I think I’ll go with “The Family of Blood” as my favorite. The tension of watching the Doctor not be himself and how strong and yet hurt Martha was. Then there was the awesome ending line about how the Doctor runs because he was being kind and the judgements he serverd out. Good stuff!

  16. While I love episodes like ‘Blink’ and ‘Silence in the Library’ my favorite episode has to be ‘The Girl in the Fireplace’ I was still getting used to Tennant and wasn’t sure I liked him after 9. (Which I guess is actually 10 now, War Doctor screws everything up.) But as the Madame De Pompadour fell in love with him over the course of the episode, so did I. This was the episode where he became my Doctor.
    It’s a heartbreaking and brilliant episode.

  17. So tough to pick a favourite! Oddly, I’m going to say Doomsday. It was the most heartbreaking episode, to watch Rose and The Doctor say goodbye and yet even then The Doctor doesn’t quite manage it. It makes me choke up every time but it is the ultimate moment of humanity but also the ultimate demonstration of what it means to be The Doctor.

  18. My favorite episode has got to be Blink. I want to pick something different from everyone else, but I can’t. It’s so good. The acting and filming are just a slight cut above the average episode!

  19. “Let’s Kill Hitler” is one of my most favorite of episodes in the Doctor Who series. This was an infectious adventure that kept a hold of me til the very end. One of my favorite scenes is when River says “Hello Sweetie” then kisses the doctor saving his life. Learning more of Melody Pond was remarkable. Even to this day, the whirlwind of all that is carried out within this episode amazes me. The character performances were brilliant.
