Best Episodes of Doctor Who

After watching every single episode made for the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors, I feel the need to write down a list of the best ones.

I’ll split it into four categories:

  • Funniest
  • Scariest
  • Most thought-provoking
  • Other




“Rose” — The start of the reboot! Really good and funny, too.

“Partners in Crime” — Possibly the funniest episode ever. And ADIPOSE!!!!

“The Unicorn and the Wasp” — Oh my gosh, Donna is the best….

“The Next Doctor” — Synopsis in one line: the Doctor meets a human man who thinks he’s a Time Lord.

“The Eleventh Hour” — No, actually, this one is the funniest episode ever. The Doctor’s always a little nuts after regeneration….

“Closing Time” — Some funny dialogues in this one.

“Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” — Self-explanatory.

“The Snowmen” — I just find Vastra, Jenny, and Strax hilarious.

“The Day of the Doctor” — Put three of the Doctor’s regenerations in a room together and see what happens.




“The Empty Child” — Mummy… are you my mummy…? Mummy, I’m scared of the bombs…. *shiver*

“42” — I wouldn’t call it particularly scary, but it is very suspenseful.

“Blink” — Don’t blink. Blink and you’re dead. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and don’t blink. Good luck.

“Silence in the Library” — Hey, who turned out the lights? One of the best episodes ever. Also introduces River Song… yay!

“The Waters of Mars” — This episode is the reason why I wasn’t so excited when NASA announced water on Mars.

“The Time of Angels” — Weeping Angels. What do you expect?

“The Impossible Astronaut” — I just find the Silence really creepy. (also yay River Song!) Warning: This two-part episode will give you a LOT of questions.

“Night Terrors” — We all know how creepy dolls are.

“Hide” — Creepy, suspenseful… eek, this one creeped me out.


Most thought-provoking:


“New Earth” — Thinking about medicine and ethics… quite interesting.

“Gridlock” — One of my favorites. I like how it takes a contemporary issue (traffic), hyperbolizes it, and applies it to the future.

“Daleks in Manhattan” — I’m always a sucker for DNA editing. 😉

“Planet of the Ood” — Ethical dilemmas! And yay for the Ood!

“Midnight” — Great for learning about psychology and mob mentality.

“The Rebel Flesh” — The age-old “are clones humans” dilemma.

“Asylum of the Daleks” — So many mysteries… and then a plot twist….




“Doomsday” — Probably one of the saddest episodes…. (Oh, Rose….)

“The Sound of Drums” — I like a good piece of backstory. 🙂

“The Pandorica Opens” — One of those episodes where everything is revealed!

“A Christmas Carol” — My favorite Christmas special, I think.

“Let’s Kill Hitler” — Hilarious and… oh gosh… you find out who River is….


That’s all for now! Maybe when I see more 12th Doctor episodes, I’ll add those too! 😀
