I voted for The Next Doctor.
I can't always explain it but I really enjoy that one.

I also like The Snowmen. Which is unusual for me.
The 11th Dr didn't really click with me until his last season. Then he left.

I went with the End of Time since it was soooo epic and made me tear up a lot at the end.


My top 5 on the list

End of Time
The Next Doctor
Last Christmas
Voyage of the Damned
The Snowmen

I feel like I'm betraying my childhood a little by not having one of the latter two as my first, but my three favourites are:

1. The Husbands of River Song
2. The Voyage of the Damned
3. The Christmas Invasion

I went with A Christmas Carol, because it was the most Christmassy of the bunch to me, it had a lot of heart and emotional resonance, and it was beautifully told...plus it had the great Michael Gambon and the amazing Katherine Jenkins gracing us with her beautiful voice.


The Next Doctor is my second fave, followed by The Christmas Invasion, The Snowmen, and Last Christmas.

Just once I'd like to see a Doctor Who Easter Special where the Doctor dies and regenerates and at the end a companion says "He has risen". albino

I had to say The Christmas Invasion, because it was when I realized that the new Doctor Who was the same show as the old one, or could be at least.

The Next Doctor and End of Time are really close behind.

"A Christmas Carol" is fairly straight-forward fun and that's the good Christmas episode which first pops in my mind.  Clever use of time travel and no one dies.  "Voyage of the Damned" is also fun despite so many deaths, but so many deaths must be why it doesn't scream Christmas.  "Next Doctor" is also fun.

"Doctor, Widow, and an Hour of Boredom" is low on the list.  I've still not felt like re-watching "Husbands of River Song".  I guess after saying goodbye to River three or four times, this latest goodbye is just three too many.  Much like wanting Rose to get hit by a truck after a couple extra goodbyes.

The ending to "Christmas Invasion" always puts me off.  "I'm the cool new Doctor, I push people off very tall ledges and murder them instead of showing mercy".  Thankfully the 10th Doctor was less bloodthirsty during most of the rest of his reign.
