Really good. The beginning is quite average and the resolution is underwhelming, however the dialogue and acting completely carry the story beyond what it could have been. The characters are all great and the plot is unique.

Votes: 6,331

Immensely satisfying. The plot flows with great pacing. The acting is great and the character reveals and choices are well handled, however there is some deus ex machina. The direction is stellar and the fan service is great, however I wish that Davros was given more to do.

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

Votes: 5,027

I love how this story explores the morality of the doctor and his companion, however the plot around it is kind of dull. The production design, music and dialogue are all great still.

What would happen if Donna never met the Doctor? How would Earth handle the Racnoss, the falling Titanic or the Sontarans? Aided by a familiar blonde time traveler, Donna corrects the alternate time line from happening.

Director: Graeme Harper | Stars: David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Billie Piper, Bernard Cribbins

Votes: 5,503

Intense. The acting is great, the plot is very unique and the direction is great. However the plot is filled with holes and doesn't really support itself as a one-off or story part. The episode making is quite standard as well, however it is a nice, darker, what-if episode.

15. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: Last of the Time Lords (2007)

TV-PG | 50 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

It's been a year since The Master unleashed the mysterious Toclafane onto Earth. With the human race and The Doctor enslaved under The Master's control, Martha Jones is the only person that can help stop the evil Time Lord.

Directors: Colin Teague, Graeme Harper | Stars: David Tennant, Freema Agyeman, John Barrowman, John Simm

Votes: 5,623

Starts out amazing, but gets dumber and dumber. I really like the Doctor-Master dynamic and their conflict. The plotting and editing are excellent, by certain storytelling elements are just stupid.

Director: James Hawes | Stars: David Tennant, Billie Piper, Noel Clarke, Anthony Head

Director: James Strong | Stars: David Tennant, Michelle Ryan, Lee Evans, Noma Dumezweni

Votes: 3,624

Pretty Good. The UNIT parts drag and some of the plotlines are unnecessary, however the plot is unique enough, with good stakes and production design. Has some good moments, but doesn't justify its length.

18. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: Partners in Crime (2008)

TV-PG | 48 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

With a new weight-loss pill tested in London by Adipose Industries, The Doctor goes to investigate the sinister truth behind the product, only to find out that his old friend Donna Noble is investigating as well.

Votes: 4,877

Good opener. The Doctor and Donna have great chemistry, the episode is funny. However then plot is weak in some places and the direction isn't great.

Director: Alice Troughton | Stars: David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Freema Agyeman, Georgia Moffett

Votes: 4,854

Quite good. The Doctor's daughter is quite fun, however lacking in much stakes. The Doctor has a lot to do, however the companions are side-lined to a generic plot.

Plot is a bit generic and the villain is weird, but it's still quite entertaining and has some good moments.

Episode: The Next Doctor (2008)

TV-PG | 60 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

The Doctor arrives in London on Christmas Eve in 1851 where he encounters the Cybermen and a man who claims he's a Time Lord called the Doctor.

Director: Andy Goddard | Stars: David Tennant, David Morrissey, Dervla Kirwan, Velile Tshabalala

Votes: 3,684

Fine. Jackson Lake makes for a great character and it's great seeing the cybermen again, however the pacing and story just can't hold me forever.

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

The Doctor and Martha travel to New York in 1930, where people have been mysteriously vanishing from the streets, and an old enemy resurfaces.

Director: James Strong | Stars: David Tennant, Freema Agyeman, Miranda Raison, Ryan Carnes

Votes: 4,657

Weird at some points. The Daleks are poorly handled, but it's still very enjoyable and well written, just strange conceptually.

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

Director: Graeme Harper | Stars: David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Fenella Woolgar, Felicity Kendal

Votes: 4,750

Not too exciting. The mystery doesn't work, due to too many plot threads and the reveal is just stupid, however the character moments and production design are great.

28. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: The Lazarus Experiment (2007)

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

The famous Dr Lazarus has appeared to discover the secret of eternal youth - but do his experiments hide a sinister secret?

Director: Richard Clark | Stars: David Tennant, Freema Agyeman, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Reggie Yates

Votes: 4,721

Passable. The monster looks terrible and the setup doesn't really work, but at least the Doctor and Martha are still well done.

29. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: The End of Time: Part Two (2010)

TV-PG | 75 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

With almost everyone on Earth now recast in his image, The Master controls the Earth. He's shocked however when he realises one person hasn't changed; Donna Noble. The Doctor soon ... See full summary »

Director: Euros Lyn | Stars: David Tennant, John Simm, Bernard Cribbins, Timothy Dalton

Votes: 4,913

Extremely conflicting. I love the treatment of Wilf, The Master and Rassilon. The direction and editing are great, however the comedy and writing are poorly handled. The plot can be really dumb, some of the pacing is WAY too stretched and the overall treatment of the Doctor makes him selfish and arrogant. A good Doctor Who story, but a bad regeneration story.

30. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: Tooth and Claw (2006)

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

The Doctor and Rose are transported to 19th Century Scotland, where they meet Queen Victoria, and try to protect her from a ravenous werewolf and a band of assassinating warrior-monks

Director: Euros Lyn | Stars: David Tennant, Billie Piper, Pauline Collins, Ian Hanmore

Votes: 5,104

Too goofy for me. I liked the historical accuracy and Tennant-Piper banter, but it's just a generically plotted episode.

31. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: The Christmas Invasion (2005)

TV-PG | 60 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

It's Christmas Eve, but this is to be a far from silent night - the cruel Sycorax have come to Earth to enslave mankind and, as ever, only The Doctor can stop them. Unfortunately, he's lying in a coma in Jackie's home...

Director: James Hawes | Stars: David Tennant, Billie Piper, Camille Coduri, Noel Clarke

Votes: 5,369

Really boring throughout most of it. Awesome whenever the Doctor's around, but still very dull.

32. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: New Earth (2006)

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

The Doctor and Rose arrive on New Earth and meet old friends and enemies in a hospital which can cure every disease. But the cures come at a terrible cost.

Director: James Hawes | Stars: David Tennant, Billie Piper, Camille Coduri, Noel Clarke

Votes: 4,975

The Villains really sucked and the episode suffered from lazy designs, still some good Doctor moments, but not enough to save it.

33. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: Gridlock (2007)

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

The Doctor takes Martha to New Earth, where she is kidnapped by two carjackers and taken to an underground Motorway, where the remainder of humanity on the planet live in perpetual gridlock.

Director: Richard Clark | Stars: David Tennant, Freema Agyeman, Ardal O'Hanlon, Anna Hope

Votes: 5,115

Extremely dull. Badly edited and lazily plotted, the only thing that saves it is the end of the episode.

34. Doctor Who (2005– )
Episode: The Idiot's Lantern (2006)

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

As the coronation of Elizabeth II nears, the streets of London live in fear. Faceless people are stolen from their homes in the night and something evil is lurking in the television.

Director: Euros Lyn | Stars: David Tennant, Billie Piper, Maureen Lipman, Ron Cook

This story is cringeworthy. Lame villain and dull aesthetic, but luckily The Doctor has some good moments and there's good production design.

Episode: Fear Her (2006)

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family

Director: Euros Lyn | Stars: David Tennant, Billie Piper, Nina Sosanya, Abisola Agbaje

It had a unique premise, but I thought the alien was annoying and the whole thing was inconsequential.The acting sucks, the dialogue is bad. Not good.

Episode: Love & Monsters (2006)

TV-PG | 45 min | Adventure, Drama, Family
