Here they are, my favorite episodes.
The 9th Doctor.
#1. Rose. Perfect beginning to bringing the Doctor back! Rose was inquisitive and exciting, and to bring back the Autons was genius. And Christopher Eccleston was the perfect choice to embody the Doctor for a new age.
#2. World War Three. The Doctor defeats the the Slitheen in 10 Downing Street! The Doctor outwits the Slitheen family and saves the Earth.
#3. Boom Town. The Doctor, Rose and Jack make a great team and the Slitheen Margaret returns and give the Doctor a great new tool for the TARDIS. This episode is fun, exciting and just darn good!
The 10th Doctor.
#1. The Christmas Invasion. David Tennant’s first outing and it’s a doozy! Killer Santas, a killer Christmas tree and an alien invasion with a sword fight!!
#2. School Reunion. Awesome link from the old series to the new. Anthony Stewart Head as the villainous Krellitane leader, priceless. The scene where Sarah Jane sees the TARDIS and turns to see The Doctor is the best!
#3. The Girl in the Fireplace. A spaceship that smells like pot roast. Yeah. Arthur the horse. A time window, 17th century France and clockwork robots. Brilliant!
#4. The Shakespeare Code. Never would have put The Doctor and Shakespeare together, but it is one of the better episodes of all time.
#5. Blink. Weeping Angels are statues. Awesome.
#6. Timecrash. A two Time Lord short with the Fifth Doctor(Peter Davison) and the 10th Doctor(David Tennant). A Whovian dream episode.
#7. Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead. Enter River Song, exit River Song. A magnificent 2 part story.
#8. The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End. Davros is back! Jack is back! Sarah Jane is back! Rose is back! And a human biological metacrisis! Brilliant!
#9. Planet of the Dead. Loved this special, a flying double-decker bus!
#10. The End of Time. Finale of David Tennant’s 10th Doctor. Timothy Dalton as a Time Lord and the return of John Simm’s The Master are excellent. The first time the Master and the Doctor worked together.
The 11th Doctor.
#1. The Eleventh Hour. Welcome Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor. At first I was concerned he wasn’t going to pull it off. But he did with flying colors. A new Doctor and a new TARDIS control room. and Bowties are cool!
#2. The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone. The Weeping Stone Angels are back! The moment that the Doctor and River figure out they are in danger is fantastic!
#3. Vincent and the Doctor. Vincent Van Gogh meets the Doctor!
#4. The Lodger. Funny and completely entertaining. Craig is a great addition to the Who universe.
#5. The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang. A time travel paradox’s nightmare. Rewinding time, planting suggestions, using scenes from previous episodes and a vortex manipulator. Awesome. And I never ever would have thought to connect the old wedding saying to the TARDIS. “Something old, something new…” Brilliant.
#6. Day of the Moon. Part 2 outshines the first, and a US President goes on the TARDIS! The writing on this show continues to astound me.
#7. The Doctor’s Wife. The TARDIS becomes a very attractive lady! Yowza! The sad thing is that other Time Lords had to die to make this a great story.
#8. A Good Man goes to War. The Doctor gathers a force to rescue Amy and after all of it, a complex ruse is found out. And the ultimate secret is revealed (even though I figured it out weeks before). And the Headless Monks…unbelievable.
#9. The God Complex. Probably one of the darkest episodes, and very mysterious.
#10. The Power of Three. Cubes arrive en masse on Earth. And Rory’s father is back in an interesting episode about a slow invasion. Also it includes a Wii and the return of UNIT. And the Brigadier’s daughter!!! Fantastic!
#11. The Angels Take Manhattan. Goodbye to Amy and Rory. A wonderful send-off. Well done.
