This is one of the many two-part episodes that I have in this list of the greatest episodes of Doctor Who. In the first part of the episode, Doctor’s companion (Amy) is kidnapped, and he tries to rescue her. Also River Song appears and she reveals one big secret about her. In the second part of the episode they go back in time to… well the title of the episode says enough.

The Doctor reveals one secret that the Time Lords have. He changes his DNA to appear and feel human in order to escape from the enemy that follows him. His companion (Martha) is with him to help him with the transition, because he don’t have the memories of the time he was a Time Lord. While he’s human, the Doctor falls in love with the school nurse Joan. Very interesting episode of Doctor Who, where you can see the human side of the Doctor, filled with emotions.

8. The Wedding of River Song

In “The Wedding of River Song” the Doctor tries to escape his death which is meant to happen at Lake Silencio in Utah. This is the final episode of season six where the Doctor finally marries River Song. This episode is one of the best episodes featuring the Eleventh Doctor and River Song.

The Pandorica Opens has a record for the largest number of aliens shown in single episode of Doctor Who. In this two-part finale, the mysterious River Song calls the Doctor to Roman Britain in 102 AD where a prison called Pandorica is located. This prison has inside the most dangerous being in the whole universe, according to the legends. Also the greatest enemies of the Doctor allied and try to capture him.

6. Midnight

Midnight Doctor WhoDoctor: Tenth (David Tennant)

Companion: Donna

Writer: Russell T Davies

Director: Alice Troughton

Season: 4, Episode: 10

Very interesting episode of Doctor Who. While the Doctor and Donna are on the planet Midnight, the Doctor decides to go to visit the waterfall made from sapphires. In the middle of the travel, the shuttle stops and some strange things start to happen. One of the passengers is possessed by unknown force and she repeats everything the other say. It’s best to watch the show, because it’s hard to explain 🙂

5. Last of the Time Lords

Last of the Time Lords Doctor Who EpisodeDoctor: Tenth (David Tennant)

Companion: Martha, Jack

Writer: Russell T Davies

Director: Colin Teague

Season: 3, Episode: 13

The best Doctor Who episode featuring The Master, Doctor’s arch enemy. For those that don’t know, The Master (John Simm) and the Doctor are the only Time Lords alive. With his genius plan, the Master becomes Prime Minister of  United Kingdom and captures the Doctor. Definitely an episode worth watching.

4. The Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead

Silence in the Library - Forest of the DeadDoctor: Tenth (David Tennant)

Companion: Donna

Writer: Steven Moffat

Director: Euros Lyn

Season: 4, Episode: 8-9

The first appearance of River Song, a mysterious woman that knows a lot about the Doctor. This is the best two-part Doctor Who episode that’s not a season finale. A lot things about the future of the Doctor are mentioned in this episode, which will be explained in the next couple of seasons. The relationship between the Doctor and River Song starts here also.

3. The End of Time

End of Time Doctor WhoDoctor: Tenth (David Tennant)

Companion: Wilfred

Season: 4, Episode: Special

This is the last episode of the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant). “The End of Time” is a two-part episode, that it’s released at Christmas. In this episode Matt Smith (the Eleventh Doctor) is introduced. Great episode featuring the Master as the Doctor’s enemy. There are also quite a few actors that are appearing again in the show. Some of them are: Donna Noble, Rose Tyler, Martha Smith-Jones, Captain Jack Harkness, Sarah Jane Smith…

2. Blink

Blink Doctor Who EpisodeDoctor: Tenth (David Tennant)

Companion: Martha

Writer: Steven Moffat

Director: Hettie MacDonald

Season: 3, Episode: 10

This is the first episode where Weeping Angels appear. It’s also a Doctor lite episode, which means that the Doctor is not appearing too much. But you don’t need to be worried about that. This is one of the greatest episodes, and if you don’t believe me, just ask some Doctor Who fan. I bet that 9 for 10 people will remember this episode.

1. Vincent and the Doctor

Vincent van Gogh and DoctorDoctor: Eleventh (Matt Smith)

Companion: Amy

Writer: Richard Curtis

Director: Jonny Campbell

Season: 5, Episode: 10

In this episode the Doctor takes Amy to France in 1890. There they will make a new friend,Vincent van Gogh, and they will fight a new monster called Krafayis. This is the most emotional episode of Doctor Who, and that’s one of the reasons why I think is the best. I quite sure that you will like this episode even if you didn’t watched Doctor Who before. And if you are an emotional person, you will definitely cry.
