My top five episodes were really easy to choose, but numbers 6-10 were a LOT harder, so here's a list of some episodes that almost made the final cut.Honorable mentions:
School Reunion. I REALLY enjoy this episode and I cannot understand people who use this episode to hate on Rose. She was not the only one acting petty and immature in this episode, and I think her attitude in this episode makes a lot of sense given that the Doctor didn't talk about his past companions at all. But the reason I love this episode is because it's so much fun to see Sarah Jane again, Mickey is used to good effect, and I DON'T EVEN CARE I LOVE K-9. I thought his relationship with Four back in Classic Who was a lot of fun, so I like that he got to make an appearance on New Who. Plus, the villain is Giles! In this episode the plot is only so-so, but the character stuff is so strong, I don't really mind.
New Earth. Mostly I love this episode because it gave David and Billie a chance to show off their comedic acting chops which isn't something either of them really got to do much of during their tenure on Doctor Who. Also? CAT NUNS!
The Shakespeare Code. Yesss this episode is so much fun. Martha is a Harry Potter fan! She uses "EXPELLIARMUS" TO SAVE THE DAY. How awesome is that? I'm also a big Shakespeare fan, so seeing this fictional version of him is a lot of fun as are all the references to his works. And the cherry on top of all this is Ten's Rose!angst. Love it.( Collapse )
