Happy holidays internet! Welcome to the time of year where it's cold, you just want to stay inside. You probably have a lot of time off from work and you will definitely be needing a break from the fam. AKA the perfect time of year to cram in TV that it took other people years to watch. Two years ago, I spent this magical time of year holed up in my apartment binging season after season of Doctor Who until I emerged that spring a brilliant sonic screwdriver wielding bow-tie wearing Whovian butterfly. I never looked back. But, dear reader, what SHOULD you be binge watching? Maybe you gave up on a great show too soon, maybe you have been told a million times you should watch something but never did or maybe your watching the American version when you are wrong and should be watching the English. Well no matter, here are my top 5 binge watch picks for this holiday/winter season from #5 you could probably skip this but it's worth trying to #1 if you aren't watching this you will die without knowing true entertainment. Here we go.
- Blink- Season 3, Episode 11. This is a very Doctor light episode, there is very little time travel, but you really get the gist of whats going on (and how dark the show can get).
- Vincent and the Doctor- Season 5, Episode 10. This is a fan favorite episode, showing the depth of emotion the Doctor has. Yes, there a few bits you may not understand do to the through-line of the show, but it's a pretty stand alone episode. And it'll probably make you cry.
- The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances- Season 1, Episodes 9 & 10. These two are probably two of my all time favorites. A great combination of pure terror and Christmas joy make these two episodes stand out as almost a great little movie if watched in succession.
