Vote for the Doctor Who story you think would be the best to show someone new to the series!

The Top Ten

1 An Unearthly Child

An Unearthly Child is the very first episode of the show...but would new viewers find it interesting enough without a Bug Eyed Monster? - Dalekbuster523

2 Spearhead From Space

Spearhead From Space is often used as a template for introductions to new eras of Doctor Who...but would new viewers appreciate its influence on the show? - Dalekbuster523

3 Genesis of the Daleks

Genesis of the Daleks is often regarded as a classic by us Whovians...but would it be too heavy-going for those new to the show? - Dalekbuster523

4 The Five Doctors

The Five Doctors is a fun Multi-Doctor adventure...but would a Multi-Doctor story be too much as an introduction for new viewers? - Dalekbuster523

5 Rose

Rose introduced many including myself to the show...but does it still have the same impact for those new to the show eleven years later? - Dalekbuster523

Where I started you either have to start here or with an unearthly child you can't start in the middle of a series

Never skip 9. - LarkwingFlight

6 The TV Movie

Paul McGann is brilliant in the 1996 T.V. Movie...but it failed to gain a new audience in 1996, so would it engage new viewers twenty years on? - Dalekbuster523

7 Boom Town
8 Blink

Blink is a new series episode hailed as a classic by many...but would a Doctor-lite story be a wise choice for new viewers? - Dalekbuster523

9 The Eleventh Hour

The Eleventh Hour was a strong opener for the Moffat era...but would it be a strong opener for new viewers? - Dalekbuster523

10 Deep Breath

Deep Breath was a good debut for Peter Capaldi's Doctor...but would a fierce Doctor be too much for new viewers? - Dalekbuster523
