toptenofeleven-3-the-doctor-at-stonehenge

So far in our #TopTenOfEleven countdown we’ve seen the funny, the heartbreaking and the downright silly but in at #3 is a moment that truly is as epic as they come.

In The Pandorica Opens (2010) the Eleventh Doctor faced his darkest day yet as a menagerie of monsters gathered to finish him off once and for all..

He wasn’t going to go down without a fight as he took to Stonehenge to deliver a message to his alien adversaries.

Although ultimately being imprisoned forevermore inside the Pandorica (he has his good days and his bad days…), the showdown paved the way for one of his most epic scenes to date which is sure to go down in history as one of Matt Smith’s iconic Who moments. See the speech in question below and keep ‘em peeled for the reveal of our runner-up…

toptenofeleven-4-were-all-stories-in-the-end

It’s Christmas Eve which means tomorrow night the time will come to say our final farewell to the Eleventh Doctor.

In preparation for his last hour we have been counting down to his greatest moment and up next is the truly iconic scene which brought his first series to its emotional climax.

In The Big Bang (2010), the Doctor reset the universe but at a price. As the crack closed and erased him from history, he had enough time to journey back to where his story began.

Relive the memorable moment he proved to Amelia that we’re all just stories in the end.

toptenofeleven-6-basically-run

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.

toptenofeleven-9-i-only-came-for-the-dancing

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!

bill-nighy-says-capaldis-casting-is-inspired-choice

Doctor Who guest star Bill Nighy has revealed Peter Capaldi is a “brilliant” person to play the Doctor.

The actor who played Dr Black in Vincent and the Doctor hailed the Twelfth Doctor choice as “a marvellous actor” and suggested we should have foreseen his casting (well Bill, we did!). “It is one of those things where you think, “Of course he’s the Doctor”,” he said. “Why didn’t I think of it before?”

Peter was revealed in the role in a live show on BBC One.

The announcement was simulcast worldwide and sparked over 500,000 reaction tweets.

“He’s elegant and looks great,” Bill added. “He will bring a lot of wit and his dry humour.”

Do you agree with Bill? Share your own views on Capaldi’s casting by voting in our poll!

Bill Nighy’s previously revealed that he was once “approached” to become the Doctor.
