Come on, we all know Jenna Coleman is clearly the most likely candidate.

I was hoping the April Fools this year would be Jenna Coleman confirmed to take over the role of The Doctor from Peter Capaldi.

@The2015oftheDoctor! @goodnightraggedyman My personal favourite definitely has to be the Series 2 Coming Soon trailer that aired at the end of 'The Christmas Invasion'. Still my favourite official trailer to this day.

@joe4 There are multiple reasons as to why New Who is much more viable trailer-wise than Classic Who. One main reason being that New Who is much easier to get a hold of digitally.


I should point out that these are trailers, not tribute videos. Two different types of video. If you think you've found several better fan-trailers that are better than any on this list, then share with us.

@Ivegotkidneys  This was at the start of the article:
"Please note that fan trailers that were digitally edited to place characters in new settings to create a new story, such as John Smith’s anniversary fan trailers will not be included, as I feel they are in a league of their own."

@3rdDalektotheLeft - minion of D.O.C.T.O.R. I did rewatch it whilst writing this article, and although I think it is great, it was unfortunately one of many I had to eliminate while narrowing this down to just 10 choices.

@The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! Thank you. :)


I must admit, I am much the same way in regards to long fan trailers. That's why only two of the trailers on this list are longer than 4 minutes. They're that good that they can hold my full undivided attention for that long.

@Timhogan I don't know why, but I just strongly dislike the episode. It just has no redeeming features to me. My biggest dislike about it is the disturbingly creepy dolls.

This has to be the first Weird & Wonderful where I've watched every single one of the featured videos before. Usually I've watched all except one or two, but I'd already seen all of them this time. That Ninth Doctor and the Rose drawings are great though.

Empty Child and Waters Of Mars are such easy wins. Blink is overrated, and Midnight is boring, cheap and just poor.


However the second poll is near impossible to decide. Both two parters are both brilliant, both 9/10s. However I'm going to go for Human Nature. Sorry Bad Wolf.

The Day Of The Doctor very easily. One of the only two 10/10 episodes in all of Doctor Who for me (Doomsday is the other one).

A great finish to a great article. A brilliant read (and listen). I agree with most of these choices, with the exception of fifth and first place. I don't think there is anything particularly special in the track selected for fifth place. Whilst for your number one choice, I definitely think it deserves to be in this list, but I'd have placed it somewhere between 20 and 10.


I myself am a Doctor Who soundtrack nut, and I absolutely love listening to the various, diverse soundtrack that musical genius Murray Gold has produced. Definitely looking forward to hearing some of these tracks play at the UK tour of the Symphonic Spectacular in May. From watching all the videos on YouTube of the Australian tour earlier this year, it seems as though I'll be hearing 'I Am Not A Good Man', 'Racing To The TARDIS' and 'This Is Just A Dream' in particular, along with a couple others on this list possibly. Really looking forward to it. Watching all of the Doctor Who Proms multiple times over along with listening to Doctor Who scores almost daily is good enough, but being there to hear the music being played live? May can't come fast enough.

Listen. Although both episodes are overrated, especially the incredibly overrated Listen. Both are 8/10s in my book.

A lovely article, definitely one that is in my interest. I love the various scores of Doctor Who! Really enjoyed this article, and I can't wait for part 2. Hopefully Silva Screen announces the soundtrack release soon, although it did take them a year for the Day/Time soundtrack...

@Huknar @ahunter8056 Oh I agree. With the limitatons of only having a certain amount of footage to work with, there are only so many unique ways you can spin a trailer before it becomes, as you rightly put it, same-y.


However I think I will actually make an attempt at writing this article. I'd just have to see if there are any rules against including own content in articles. I think it would be okay, but I just hope there isn't anything against it. Thank you for the ending encouragement. :)

This is a tough one. I think both episodes are great, definitely both 8/10s. However I find 'The Doctor's Wife' slightly the weaker of the two, and vastly overrated. However 'The Doctor's Wife' does include a surprise appearance of the best TARDIS console room of all time, along with Amy, Rory and Eleven standing in it. So I'm going to have to give this further consideration.

Also a great idea for another article I just had, "Top 10 Fan Trailers". I'd certainly love to write it, but I'd have to put one of my own on there if I wrote it. :P

A good list, of which I hadn't seen half of these. However for Cloister Productions, I would have definitely picked his "Doctor Who-Classic Themed Peter Capaldi Title Sequence" over his glass intro. Don't get me wrong, the glass sequence is definitely very creative, but to me it's what looks visually pleasing that counts rather than innovation.


Personally, I thought the number five title sequence pick was poor and undeserving of this list. The 8th Doctor Big Finish title sequence was decent, but I'd rank it at number 10 or not at all personally. The John Smith title sequence, I've seen it before, and I've always thought it was good, but too slow. If it had been faster paced it would be great, but the slow pace ruins it for me.

I hope this is finally his standout episode. He certainly seems to be on the way to it, considering his recent streak. Cold War was decent, Crimson Horror was good and Robot Of Sherwood was great. Hopefully we finally get a brilliant episode out of him. I really do hope so, because he is a great person to listen to in interviews.


Just as long as he never makes another 'Night Terrors' "quality" episode again. Ugh.

@YaelMoise watches them rise up high @AlessandroArsuffi No, of course you don't have to preface everything by stating that it's your opinion. That would be silly, and judging by your reply, I think you took our responses harder than they were intended.


But the wording of your comment made it seem as though you were suggesting that the episode shouldn't have been voted highly by anyone, due to your low opinion of it. From the sounds of it, that wasn't how you intended it to come out at all. But the wording needed work to better put across what you were actually intending to say. In particular, this part:


"I'm having a hard time with the concept of The Stolen Earth / Journey's End being in this poll.

If I understood DWTV correctly, the only stories to appear in these "head to head" polls are ones that were ranked very highly. Considering the caliber of episodes shown so far, I expected that to mean "borderline perfect 10"."


With that second paragraph, it definitely sounds like you're saying that nobody should have voted this episode highly.

This is the first difficult choice I've had in these polls so far. Both two parters are masterpieces, 9/10s all round. But I'm afraid 'Human Nature' gets my vote, as it's just that little bit better.
