The Top Ten

Vincent and the Doctor
Pure emotion with time travel.

What could be better.
Unlike most 11th stories it's about something real.
Beautifully written with a perfect third act
The episode was so moving at the end, it made me cry

2The Eleventh Hour
It was the perfect way to start the series. It's quirky, funny and light-hearted, a lot like the 11th Doctor. It represents our characters perfectly and introduced them in the best way imaginable.

3The Doctors Wife
This episode is epic! :D Ever since the first ever episode back in 1963, we have known about the TARDIS, and now we finally get to see her. Well worth the 50 year wait


One of the best episodes of the eleventh doctor
This is my favorite episode of all time!

4A Christmas Carol
The best Christmas special by far. A truly great entry for the eleventh doctors time in the TARDIS.
It was sweet, funny and simply fantastic.

5The Girl Who Waited
I think that this episode is just heartbreaking. It shows that travelling with the Doctor is not all fun and games and get rid of the villain. It shows that it can be truly heartbreaking. I think the acting from the trio (especially Karen Gillan) is phenomenal! I hope they do more episodes like this!
This episode was my second favorite of all time, the first being the wedding of river song. The ending made me cry and the part where the two Amy's talk about Rory, amazing!

6The Angels Take Manhatten
I will never watch this episode without crying. It is well written and over all just heartbreaking.
Every time I watch this, I start crying. What really gets me is when Amy write the Eleven and tells him to "go to her, tell her a story."
Rory and Amy were amazing, it was definitely one of the worst character departures ;(
This episode made me cry, it was heart-breaking and is my favourite episode of all time

7The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang
Just great. One of the more complex besides the doctor's wife (close second) Just bloody brilliant
I especially love the ending.
Complex and mindblowing. Simply amazing.

8The Time of the Angels/Flesh and Stone
An epic story and very good. Amy kissed the doctor at the end! Watch this it is truly amazing


You cannot beat a Weeping Angel but when the pandorica opened was pretty epic, and the god complex was pretty cool, same with a good man goes to war.
It was hard to choose between this, the eleventh hour, and the wedding of River Song.


9The God Complex
A quirky and unusual episode, that does an excellent job of building suspense and making a creepy and somewhat disturbing atmosphere... Overall, very well executed and probably my all time favourite episode!

10The Day of the Doctor
I literally stood up and saluted this episode along with all the 12 Doctors... actually all 13. This IS the Best episode in Doctor Who
The Day of the Doctor was the first episode of Doctor Who that I watched!
Love the song and the Doctor's speech
[Newest]Love the song and the Doctor's speech.

The Contenders

11The Lodger
This was funny and adorable. It was one of those episodes that highlight 11's character perfectly.

12The Impossible Astronaught/Day of the Moon
The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon is my favorite set of episodes in Doctor Who. The beginning was absolutely crazy and intense and confusing. It really set the mood for the whole episode! I loved how it was set in America. The plot and setting was awesome. Canton Delaware was a phenomenal supporting character. I really liked River and The Doctor's relationship in this episode. And talk about plot twists! I don't want to spoil too much, but the endings for these episodes were totally unexpected.
And I was going to say something else, but it seems like I forgot...
This is my all-time favorite episode - even above Day of the Doctor! The plot was incredible, the acting was at its peak, and the Doctor-River flirting was hilariously quotable! It was so funny, so rich, so real. Plus, bonus points for introducing the Silence (and a whole plot arc! ) I laughed. I cried. And I thanked the world for bringing Steven Moffat into existence.
But not spelled like that.

13A Good Man Goes to War/Lets Kill Hitler
Not higher up because" Lets Kill Hitler " wasnt all that good. " A Good Man Goes to War" was amazing though.


14A Town Called Mercy

15Night Terrors
I thought the Weeping Angels were losing their scariness factor then BAM! Along comes this beauty of an episode. One of the only Doctor Who episodes to make me scream in horror, I had nightmares!

16The Snowmen
My first episode ever and we meets clara and find out she's oswin! So cool


17The Rings of Akhaten
Love the song and the Doctor's speech

18The Beast Below

19Asylum of the Daleks
Its in my opinion the best episode because it was very powerful moving and a good story it really made the daleks look threatening and the end was quite possibly the best doctor who has had. All in all 9.5/10 awesome episode

20The Time of the Doctor
Matt smith regenerates into peter capaldi!

21Victory of the Daleks

22Closing Time
I just loved this episode. It was hilarious, and it featured the return of Craig!

23Amys Choice
The twist at the end that reveals a darker side to The Doctor is absolutely brilliant, as well as terrifyingly chilling - what Classic Who is known best for! But instead of Cybermen as Daleks, the terror lies in The Doctor himself. Both the realities and the choice Amy is faced with does add to answering the long-lived question of Rory or The Doctor. But also sparks these thoughts in your own mind; what would you choose? The perfect, normal life with your perfect husband, or travelling through the whole of time and space with The Doctor?
Great episode! I hope that the Dream Lord revisits the show, because he was such a great villain!
Toby Jones. Just Toby Jones. And crazy angry old men.

24The Wedding of River Song
This episode is awesome come on! Best episode of doctor who not only for the eleventh doctor but ever! This bit here is only for the quality thing! Blagy boo boo

25Silence In the Library/Forest of the Dead
I don't care that you got the wrong doctor. It's still the best episode ever! And It's kinda with the 11th Doctor. River called the 11th Doctor, but the message came too early


Although I loved these two episodes, they were with the 10th Doctor and do not belong on this list at all.


Hey, Who turned out the lights?

26The Crimson Horror
By far the most exciting, funniest and weirdest episode of season 7. The part where they show Mr sweet made me jump out of my seat.


27The Name of the Doctor

28The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe
Are you kidding me this was fantastic it really shows that no one should be alone even if it's better that you are and finally he has a nice Christmas dinner


30The Curse of the Black Spot

31The Power of Three

32The Bells of Saint John

33Cold War

34Nightmare In Silver
This was a PERFECT re-introduction to the Cybermen. The upgrades and new powers they have were executed perfectly, Neil Gaiman's writing wa spot-on, and Matt Smith gives the performance of his career.

35Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS

36Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

37The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood

38The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People

39The Vampires of Venice
