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:
- Most thought-provoking
“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.
“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! 😀
