The Girl Who Waited, The Angels Take Manhattan and A Christmas Carol. Three really good episodes, Rings and Time aren't here. These results are all wrong, people probably voted them for a laugh. Probably. I mean I know. Sane people wouldn't rate them two high?

I agree with these results! Happy to see some of my favourites still haven't been listed yet.

A Christmas Carol should be in the top 5 for me.

These are all great episodes. I hope The Day of the Doctor will end up as number one. It's been a long time since a Doctor Who left me completely satisfied in every single way, but that one did.

It's starting to look more interesting. Those are 7 of my least favorite episodes and none of them made the top ten :)

I reckon it's a standoff between Eleventh Hour, Day Of The Doctor & Vincent and The Doctor.

Can't believe The God Complex and The Girl Who Waited are so low down! I mean, great scores anyway, but I really thought those two would be top 10 material! Really do think those two might just be my favourite Doctor Who episodes ever.

Here's some general advice for all of you: If you really can't handle other people's opinions then maybe you shouldn't visit a site full of other peoples' opinions. For heaven's sake, it's like kindergarten in here.

From the episodes that we have left, here is how I hope the top 10 will look:

1. The Day of the Doctor

2. Vincent and the Doctor

3. The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang

4. The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon

5. The Time of the Doctor

6. The Name of the Doctor

7. Asylum of the Daleks

8. The Eleventh Hour

9. A Good Man Goes to War

10. The Snowmen

11. The Doctor's Wife

12. The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone (although I would have it in my bottom five)

Okay. I would have liked to have seen Bells much higher (it's a masterpiece in my opinion), but I predicted that it would be somewhere around here. I would also have liked to have seen God, Girl and Lodger higher (they're all in or very near my top 10). In contrast, I'm not a huge fan of Amy's Choice, and I think that Angels and Carol are about right.

I'm surprised that The Girl Who Waited is this low I thought it would have made the top 5, I'm also surprised Time of The Doctor is so high, considering it's polarizing reaction.

Shame to see Amy's Choice and The Girl Who Waited behind The Angels Take Manhattan, but oh well, can't win 'em all I suppose.

I know what'll win again... ... ...Blink.

I'd point out that these episodes have been rated well even though they have missed out on the top ten.

If I'm not wrong then The Time of Angels and Asylum of the Daleks are higher than The Girl Who Waited... Ouch.

Don't get me wrong, they're both very good episodes, but TGWW is in my top 10 of all modern series, it's fantastic.

awww, an xmas carol, lodger, amys choice and even angels to a lesser degree are favorites of mine :'( im just hoping Time of the doctor does well, i absolutely adored it! i dont really get all the hate for it tbh. im still gutted about Mercy's score from yesterday, my favorite episode!

@JJ2000 I voted The Rings of Akhaten as 7/10 and The Time of the Doctor as 8/10. None of them are absolutely brilliant but they are enjoyable :)

@Polyphase I'm not having a go at you or anything, but I've noticed that you hate a lot of things. Is there anything about New-Who you actually like?

The Mind Probe

@jacksayspurple  Well, those two are strange cases... the first time they were on I loved them both. On re-watches I just find them slow and depressing!

@Baker Street Interesting you placed The Doctor's Wife so low, I'm thinking it will be a lot higher. I agree with pretty much everything else though.

@Baker Street It's very interesting to see that only 2 of the top 10 episodes are not written by Moffat. That guy sure is a popular fellow.

@Eternalitis Blink isn't the best of Matt Smith though, so I doubt Blink will win somehow....

@Eternalitis  It'd be an impressive feat. Like all the nominees for the best actor being Leonardo de Caprio and Gravity somehow winning XD

@gunslinger19  Yeah hopefully Time makes it into the top ten. I would still be very happy with 12th place though, I thought that to had way more hate than this.

@Regenerated Catterson  It's an unusual episode for Moff, with much more of a RTD feel to it, not very fairytale, and very modern earth based. Not very original by his high standards, but several great scenes!

Master Michael Moon

@Regenerated Catterson  I'm not. It was a great episode, it had it's faults, like most of the Smith era, but the plot was decent and it felt fresh. And I loved how Moffat turned WiFi into a threat, clever stuff.

@The Mind Probe I just found them both so touching! When young Amy talks to old Amy about how Rory's 'face becomes him' in TGWW and when the Doctor realizes that he can't save everyone in TGC are both such emotionally powerful moments. The first one actually made me tear up a little! I'm so weak for emotional times! Haha!
