Doctor Who has remained a popular franchise for decades, and a large part of its continued longevity is thanks to the 2005 reboot. There are a lot of opinions out there on what the best episodes of the franchise are, and a lot of factors when fans decide their favorites. Doctors, companions, and villains all play a big part in deciding, so it’s hard to find a definitive guide to which episodes are the best.
I believe it’s highly up to the individual as to which Doctor Who episodes are definitively the best, though I do believe there are some that, for one reason or another, will often pop up as a pick because they’re just that good. With that in mind, here are the top choices for the modern era of the series, and the episodes that many fans will enjoy watching again and again, any time there’s a lull between new episodes.
