Top 10 Best Plot Lines in Doctor Who

Doctor Who has some amazing plots. These plots are usually long, thought out, and convoluted. These are some of the best. *Note all of these are New Who. It's not that Old Who is bad, it's just I haven't seen enough of it.
The Top Ten
1 Vote Saxon/Yana (Series 3)

Vote Saxon is my favorite. It is obviously the return of The Master. The whole leadup to this is just awesome. It starts with Vote Saxon signs and news reports. Then in Gridlock, the Face of Bo tells the Doctor You Are Not the Last. This leads to the Utopia which reveals Yana being the Master. He regenerates into Harold Saxon and all the fun starts. Just an epic plot.

2 Pandorica Opens (Series 5)

Pandorica Opens was just a great idea. They set it up from Matt Smith's first episode. I just love the idea of all of the Doctor's enemies teaming up to beat him.

3 Bad Wolf (Series 1 and 4)

The first plot line for New Who. Rose of course is Bad Wolf. She became basically an all knowing being. The Ninth was forced to regenerate trying to save her. In the 4th series, when Rose came back, they used Bad Wolf to signal she was back.

4 The Stars Are Going Out (Series 4)

In Series four the Daleks were making the Stars go out. This was mentioned several times in the series. The Daleks formed the plan to make the reality bomb. Just a classic series.

5 Torchwood (Series 2)

Torchwood was mentioned several times in series 2. Started by Queen Victoria to combat aliens. Torchwood would decide to stupidly create ghost which would eventually turn into Cybermen.

6 Silence Will Fall (Series 5, 6, and 7)

Throughout Matt Smith's run the Silence were the most confusing thing ever. Silence Will Fall is a phrase used so many times. It turns out the Silence is supposed to help the Doctor not hurt him.

7 The Name of the Doctor (Every Series)

Throughout Doctor Who the question is asked, "Doctor Who? " The ultimate question.

8 The Impossible Girl (Series 7)

Of course referring to Clara. Known as the Impossible Girl because of how much she dies and comes back. Her main mission was to save the Doctor.

9 Heaven (Series 8)

In Series 8, every ending of an episode we saw what was said to be Heaven. This turned out to be a trap by Missy/The Master.

10 Gallifrey (All Series Until Series 7)

Throughout the first few series we are told Gallifrey was destroyed in the Time War. In David Tennant's last episode Gallifrey returns and attempts to take over Earth. We then question, how did Gallifrey come back if it was destroyed? We see in the 50th anniversary special that Gallifrey was never destroyed, but it was instead just frozen in time by the War Doctor.

Well that conversation was just reignited.
