I think there should be a "special" episode, in that its something like a multi-Doctor story to make the fans squee, but the show is a continuation so I don't think it warrants a full fledged special ala Day of the Doctor.

@TheNightmareChild... is Boe Derek So no one voted? It was an SFX editors pick? That explains a LOT.

@MeglosProductions He's really not, he's an awful writer. Power of Three is easily his best work, and it's still only average.

"Being a Nu-Who viewer, I can only know so much about how Gallifrey was before the Time War.
" - Apparently so. "However, what I have heard is that the Time Lords could be more villainous than friendly." - Incorrect, they were the protectors of time, they were corrupt, overly pacifistic, but what RTD butchered them into had NOTHING to do with how they were portrayed in the classic series. Like his direction or hate it, there's no reason the timelords can't come back as who they once were, or another direction. They were certainly never villainous in the traditional sense. " Pair that with the flimsy plot of bringing Gallifrey back (The War Doctor and Ten just forget what happened, seriously?), and I think it was unnecessary." - Errr no, time was re-written, but being as this is already the Doctors past the memories of new events don't catch up with him until such time as it has been re-written. He's a timelord and obviously immune to such  re-write until time catches up as it were (see every previous multi-Doctor story.       Personally I'd suggest some classic viewing.

@MrRazza @no_tweeter @Polyphase I don't think so, it can be very antagonistic to be so antagonistic about something many clearly love.

It also touches on the note of respect to the content creators.

@Polyphase I honestly thought of you reading this article. That may be unfair as you are never rude, but very strong negative views which might be read as fact.

@ahunter8056 @no_tweeter  I thought it played out like fan fiction, infact as a child I did write some fanfiction with Daleks vs Cybermen. I mean it ended with a giant vacuum cleaner resolution.

@WiblyWoblyTimyWimyMOFFAT  Actually I couldn't imagine what else could possibly win it, it was a fan favourite, and satisfying resolution to an arc and led into the 50th. Couldn't see it not winning, and I do love it. That said I *think* I voted for the Big Bang, I was torn between the two.

Author lets his prejudice really show here. A Moffat episode wins "I'm really surprised to see this one here" x3

@ahunter8056  I agree with the OP, series 2 was pretty dire, apart from The Girl in the Fireplace and School Reunion there is little to speak highly of.

That was a bizarre outcome, over than Love and Monsters and Fear Her.....seriously expected series 3 finale to be voted the worst, it was so horribly cheesy.

Crikey... they were all a bit rubbish IMHO. That said Waters of Mars was ok until the ending... not sure what to pick. Christmas Invasion as it introduced Tennant?

@Polyphase @no_tweeter @DaireConstantineOReilly  Dull does tend to be a common complaint aimed at intelligent poignant writing - I imagine the writers take it as a badge of honor.

Day of the Moon for me. I fully expect Tooth and Claw to win this but I'm sadly not a fan. Fires of Pompeii I could live with.

@Polyphase @GaryKingston  The Doctor who gave the show a new lease of life by playing the childlike hobo would find it a bit childish? I would say he'd be proud to say the current itteration, the Smith era is a mesh between Hinchcliffe era writing and Patrick Troughtons wonderful performace of childlike wonder and physical acting.

@mgm1229  But can we forget it come into the world with Rose? It shouldn't win by default, it's either a good episode or a bad, and it's not even one of the strongest of season 1.

@Polyphase @JLS1138  Yup, placing Bad Wolf everywhere, with no tangible meaning was a far better idea 8-) The cracks were the best arc in the shows 50 year history, each time teasing out a bit more information about what they were, connecting the universe, undoing time, until finally a piece of TARDIS was removed - they were fantastic exactly BECAUSE they weren't just spot the reference, the idea that the TARDIS caused a tear in the universe came to every viewer at a different point of progression through the series. They were ongoing and expanding clues to the audience.

@Polyphase @DaireConstantineOReilly  Wow, my the Girl Who Waited is my favourite episode of all time, and the God Complex is pretty high up there. To each their own bizarre view on the universe I suppose.

Fine with anyone on that list except RTD or Chris Chibnall.
