Well, I’m still too emotionally drained to put together anything that would be as poignant as that bit of television deserves. The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special perfectly captures why the series is so damn important to so many people. Everything about that imperfect, impossible, raggedy man, in all his forms, makes my heart sing.
10. I Spy With My Little Eye… Capaldi’s Eyes!
Super brief. Blink and miss it. But they were there: the eyes of 12. Or is it 13?
9. Tom Baker!
This was moment number 6 that made me break down into tears of joy.
8. John Hurt Regenerates Into Eccleston!
Yes, I’m using exclamation points like it’s my job. This episode was worth it.
