If it happens, get BBC films or Film4 to do it. British film companies would get Doctor Who and understand what it needs.

I'm going with the Twelfth Doctor. Of course, I'd rewatch either of them any day and revel in the astounding performances of Peter Tennant.


I'm curious as to how this voting is working. Did someone get knocked out, or are they all facing each other?

Oh, Frontier in Space. How I love thee. But to have the Draconians return would be pointless.


In all honesty, I'd just like to see new villains. There is one villain, however, that I think you must have missed from this list.

Tenth Doctor. It would be unfair to vote for an actor who appeared as the Doctor for one episode over the actor who played the role for 3 series and contributed to the show's popular appeal.

@ahunter8056 It makes sense that RP on television has disappeared because RP is fading from society. I have met very few people in real life who use it. It's very unrepresentative.

I can understand Christopher Eccleston not wanting to discuss it. It was something he did 10 years ago and he's done a lot since. I've seen him in other things and he's such a good actor. Even as a Doctor Who fan, I can separate him from the show and this is primarily because I see him as one of the greatest actors England has produced in the last 20-30 years.

What a magnificent story. It's remembered as one of Doctor Who finest moments and I think rightly so. For this to be part of Tom Baker's first season as the Doctor really does his portrayal of the character an excellent service. It offers a fresh perspective on the Daleks (New Who fans, boy have we needed that in recent times) and introduces one of the shows greatest and maddest villains. The true nature of the Daleks is reflected in their creator, a power crazy lunatic. In the end the Doctor doesn't succeed in his quest but he does succeed in being better than those he's struggling against and this is the triumph. It teaches all who are watching a lesson. Be the best person you can be, even if that means difficult sacrifices.

Terry Nation, for Blake's 7, Survivors and your work on Doctor Who particularly the Daleks I salute you. Your contribution to my happiness as well as British TV culture is amazing.

I love Deep Breath. I'd put it just behind Listen and Mummy on the Orient Express from series 8. It was exciting with humour but also slow at times. It did give me this feeling of a developed story though. I loved the new Doctor The way I see it, it was good to have a new perspective and I find it believable that a 2,500 year old time traveller isn't characteristically as black and white or clear cut as we'd like him to be. The Doctor shouldn't be completely recognisable. He's a mystery - we don't even know his name.

I think the Paternoster Gang are in Deep Breath for the same reason UNIT are in Robot. It's a crossover between eras and that fact that Steven Moffat has suggested not featuring them as heavily may show this.

As for the phone call, well it was just an expert touch. It was a clever idea that hadn't been done before and helped to reassure worried Matt Smith fans as well as Clara. I still think one of my favourite moments of this series was Clara's acceptance of the Doctor at the end of the episode. It really endeared me to her and showed me that Steven Moffat isn't trying to make a villain out of The Twelfth Doctor, just an anti-hero. Like the First Doctor (my absolute favourite).

I'd have Steven Moffat on for as long as he's willing whether that's series 9, 10 or 15. I really think he's got a mindful of ideas that could go on for a while yet.

10/10 I'd put John Hurt in brackets on the best of list. He's great of course. It's John Hurt. Better in one episode sharing screen time with two other actors than many actors would be able to do in a single tenure (luckily we've never had those actors cast in the role. Every actor to play the role has nailed it).


Also we can now say we've had John Hurt as Doctor Who. THE John Hurt.

My opinion is that if Doctor Who is religion, the belief does not lie in the belief that the characters are real. We know they're not. That's why we talk about the writers and actors and the filming. Our belief is in the programme and our gospel is constantly being written. Not only that but we are not told what to do by anyone and very very little counts as blasphemy.


That being said there is an old testament (1963-1989/1996) and a new testament (2005-present).

The idea of Steven Moffat representing two sides of Clara is definitely possible. It does seem as though they are doing a 'pairing' thing with the episodes (see The Girl Who Died/ The Woman Who Lived and the fact that there is another currently unnamed two parter). I think it would be great idea as a theme and format. Steven Moffat has already said that in all of the two parters this series the part ones will differ from the part twos.

I actually really really like Love & Monsters. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. It's about love and loss, finding meaning in one's own life and most importantly it's a loving tribute to Doctor Who fans and their dedication. I could really connect with Elton and LINDA. It was also refreshing to watch a story that isn't from a regular character's perspective.
