Best Doctor Who Episodes

This list contains the top ten best Doctor Who episodes from 1963-2012.

The Contenders: Page 4

61 The Curse of the Black Spot

I don't get the hate for this episode. It's a fun, sometimes touching, nautical horror thrill-ride with an interesting science-fiction solution. It's got some cracking dialogue, too!

Though the Siren is silly, Hugh Bonneville is great, and it was great seeing Amy Pond hold her own in a sword duel.

62 Remembrance of the Daleks

But this is my favorite Who episode! This deserves a WAY higher spot. It may not be the best, but is there any other Doctor Who story where the Doctor uses trickery as his only weapon?

I'm disappointed I had to add this one. It's my favorite Dalek story, and it shows the Seventh Doctor at his finest.


Rememberance of the Daleks feartured the darker 7th Doctor (though he hadn't yet switched his jacket), who plays the Imperial and Renegade Daleks against eachother in one of the most memorable combat sequences in Doctor Who history, as well as a tension-filled conversation between the Doctor and Davros. If you have not seen this story, go and watch it. You will not be disappointed.

63 The Stones of Blood
64 Spearhead From Space

It's probably the best classic post-regeneration story. Plus-the Nestenes!

65 Terminus
66 The Two Doctors
67 Revenge of the Cybermen

I watched it yesterday, I loved it. But at the end of pt. 2 I was very sad. The cybermen are eerie and scary. Just to let whoever is going to watch it, it is one of my favorite episodes and I'm sore you will love it too.

Great Episode - 2storm

68 The Talons of Weng-Chiang

One of the best...

Great episoe

69 Terror of the Autons
70 The Girl Who Waited


71 Frontios
72 Dinosaurs On A Spaceship

The premise is cool, and so are Solomon's Robots, but Solomon himself? Eh...

73 Deep Breath

So brilliant, introduced my favourite doctor

74 The Family of Blood

I read about The Family of Blood.
There is dad of Mine
Mom of Mine
Son of Mine
Daughter of Mine
Someone (I think son) is a scare crow
Daughter of Mine is stuck in a mirror with a balloon
I think it will be a very cool episode

75 Kinda

Superb story. I wouldn't describe it as 'fun' though. It's actually quite a mature dark story. - Crugsy

76 Earthshock

This episode is EXCELLENT. (See what I did there? )

No - 2storm


77 An Unearthly Child

The last three parts are boring, but the opening episode is one of the best in the show's history.

This one makes it on the list for being the first episode of a show that amazed audiences for 50+ years.

78 The Pandorica Opens
79 Last Christmas
80 Snake Dance
