A friend of mine recently got into Doctor Who and is currently watching the 9th Doctor era. However I feel they should watch some 10th Doctor episodes before "The Elventh Hour." Which would you say are the best episodes that show all aspects of 10 and are easily accessible to a newer fan?

That's a tricky one. I particularly like the 2 parter Cyberman episode in series 2. But I think Tennant's best episodes are in series 3.

Great suggestion. Maybe Voyage of the Damned might work too. It's hard to find an episode that shows ALL aspects of this Doctor!

Silence in the Library 1 & 2. Loved that episode. The bit at the end with River Song is brilliant

Ew, really? "Blink" notwithstanding, I despised Series 3 pretty intensely (though not as much as Series 4).

Anyway, favorite Tennant episodes...

"School Reunion" (but if your friend's not down with Sarah Jane -- or "Buffy" given the ASH guest spot -- his/her mileage may vary)
"The Girl in the Fireplace"
"Army of Ghosts" and "Doomsday"
"Blink"
"Silence in the Library" and "Forest of the Dead"

and maybe

"The Sontaran Stratagem" and "The Poison Sky" (I did like seeing Martha -- I hated Series 3, but oh she's foxy -- and the Sontarans, so that could account for these episodes' appeal)

aaand if "The Infinite Quest" counts, that was kinda neat, too. Smile

I love all the episodes suggested, but can't help but think he was hardly in Blink.

And I really liked the 2 Cybermen episodes. Why didn't you?

Oh, I was more responding to your comment about Series 3 having the best 10th Doctor episodes. I didn't mind the Cybermen 2-parter; I just didn't think it was all that special. (Also, while the Cybus Cyberman figure is undeniably superior to the one classic Cyberman I own, I miss REAL Cybermen.)

Oh yes...Human Nature/Family of Blood...and Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead...really good Ten episodes!

I absolutely LOVED Midnight and Gridlock, and I'd also recommend The Christmas Invasion...and The End of Time -- kind of hard to say what's more accessible to the newer fan, but I like to see the beginnings and endings of things...

I would definitely rank Blink among the best Tenth Doctor episodes. Sure, it's true that the Doctor is hardly in Blink, but that's part of the magic of the episode: every second of his limited screen-time is pitch-perfect. He is a towering presence in the episode despite barely being there. In much the same way that the episode Hush demonstrated that Buffy the Vampire Slayer could still be funny and dramatic even without its trademark dialogue, Blink demonstrates the power of the Doctor character even when he's not around!

My other favorites featuring good ol' Number Ten: The Girl in the Fireplace, Army of Ghosts/Doomsday, Gridlock, Human Nature/The Family of Blood, The Sontaran Strategem/The Poison Sky, and Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead.

Doomsday. The last scene were the Doctor and Rose say their goodbyes. Heartwrenching.

I can honestly say that I liked all of those episodes. They are all good in their own ways. To throw in a few other favorites of mine...

Army of Ghosts and Doomsday. The whole Doctor vs. Torchwood vs. Cybermen vs. Daleks thing just really makes for an interesting story, in my opinion.

As for actual episodes... actually, I'd recommend the Unicorn and the Wasp. Why? Because it shows the Doctor, the time traveling and complexities involved, some elements of humor, drama, mystery, suspense, aliens and the frequently prevalent look into human nature that Doctor Who often does...

But most importantly, a newbie can watch the episode, and aside from the fact that the Doctor has Donna as a companion, absolutely nothing is revealed, so no spoilers.

Though, personally, if I'm trying to get someone into Doctor Who, I'd show them this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4YpH6TgqCY It's a beautiful tribute.
