Doctor Who has always done well with their big, powerful speeches from the doctors, companions and other characters or creatures, but I have a couple of favourites that top the list. The first is the 11th Doctors Ring of Akhatan speech from series 7 episode 8 “Rings of Akhatan” this scene in the episode is one of the best scenes in the whole show with the beautiful colours, Matt Smith who gave the passion, emotion and just all-around chills with his words and one other factor that I think brought life to the speech is the music, the song that Murray Gold composed called “The Long Song” is one of the best pieces of music that I have ever heard it gives me a sense of peace, community and love. The second speech that I love is Peter Capaldi’s War speech from series 9 episode 8 “The Zygon Inversion” the words that are spoken in this scene by the 12th Doctor always makes me cry, the broken voice of him trying to convince the Zygon not to declare war with Earth with the experience that he had in the Time War is always so heartbreaking yet inspiring to watch.
5. The Doctor & friends bring Earth home: S4 Ep13 – Journey's End.
The finale of series 4 was a real blockbuster episode it has lots of action, drama and an astonishing cast with past companions and friends returning such as Billie Piper, Catherine Tate, Freema Agyeman, John Barrowman, Elisabeth Sladen, Camille Couri, Noel Clarke and Bernard Cribbins, we also had the return of the Daleks and their creator Davros which made this episode so exhilarating to watch. With this episode also being my favourite in the whole of the show's history, there is one scene that makes me smile which is when the Tenth Doctor and his friends are all in the TARDIS putting Earth back where it belongs in the Solar System, I love the sense of success, friendship and teamwork in this particular moment and in my opinion it was a remarkable way to end the fourth series.
6. Vincent van Gogh sees his artwork in the gallery: S5 Ep10 – Vincent and the Doctor.
This episode has a special place in my heart, and I think it’s the best episode of the fifth series. It showed me the beauty and the tragedy of Vincent van Gogh’s story towards the end of his life. However, my favourite moment of this story was how Vincent got presented his own paintings in the gallery by the Doctor and Amy Pond, I thought this sequence was portrayed beautifully by Tony Curran (Van Gogh), he displayed hope, sentiment and belief as he realises that his work will live on for generations, this scene always makes me emotional. Also, the music that went along with the scene was an absolute masterpiece, it was perfect.
