Continuing our #TopTenOfEleven countdown is another epic moment from his opening adventure!

By the time the closing scenes of The Eleventh Hour arrived, Matt Smith had already established himself as a Time Lord to be reckoned with as he took to the rooftops of Leadworth Hospital for a final showdown with the alien Atraxi.

Here he proved a new (and arguably baby) face didn’t mean new rules as he told the Atraxi to, well, “basically… run!”.

And that they did, my friends. That they did. See the great moment in the player below…

Next in our #TopTenOfEleven is the moment the Eleventh Doctor first stepped out of the TARDIS and into the heart of the nation.

His debut adventure The Eleventh Hour also introduced us to his favourite delicacy – fish fingers and custard!

After turning down bacon and ‘evil beans’, he’d finally found something that tickled his taste buds, though we’d keep him far away from the turkey this Christmas, Clara!

This desirable dish has become an iconic image from the Eleventh Doctor’s era, so much so that Bird’s Eye made a celebratory pack to honour Fish Fingers and Custard Day (3rd April) this year! See the moment the Doctor discovered his love for it in the player.

The previous two installments of our #TopTenOfEleven have highlighted the more comedic traits of the 11th Doctor but 8 proves that even a Time Lord knows when to draw the line.

In the mid-Series 6 finale, A Good Man Goes to War, the Doctor, Amy and Rory embarked on their darkest challenge yet as the truth behind River Song was finally revealed.

It all got a bit too much for the Doctor as his emotions were tested and friendships were pushed to their very limits.

Relive the moment a face off with “Colonel Runaway” touched the Doctor’s nerve below!

The universe had been restored, Amy and Rory finally made it down the isle, and everything was back to normal.

The date was 26th June 2010 and after a rollercoaster ride of an adventure, we had safely made it to the epic finale of Matt Smith’s first series. And he was nowhere to be seen! It didn’t take Amy long to realise that there was a certain Time Lord shaped hole missing from the proceedings and as she wished him back into existence, he returned to give her the greatest wedding present of them all.

And as our countdown of the #TopTenOfEleven continues, it is this triumphant comeback that has finished in ninth place. The iconic moment proved once and for all that even the end of the universe couldn’t wipe out our beloved hero, but perhaps more importantly, it introduced his epic ‘giraffe dance’ unto the world. Because he only came for the dancing!
