Minor mentions here. Next year is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who (the first episode was scheduled to air the same day Kennedy was assassinated).

The budget for Doctor Who (now) is actually not all that much more than in 2005, technology has just gotten better really. There are some wonderful episodes in the prior seasons (primarily those written by the now show runner, Steven Moffat).

My husband collections all the DVD's of both new and classic series (including DW's spinoffs), and while the old series definitely was on a show string budget, there are some absolutely fantastic episodes that even rival the quality of the new series (ever want to dabble, let me know and I can recommend some).

Below are my top ten, for various reasons. If you want, also look up the Top 200 Doctor Who episodes. The DW magazine yearly does a poll to determine the best episodes amongst the fans.

1. Caves of Androzani (5th Doctor's last episode)
2. City of Death (4th Doctor, written by Douglas Adams)
3. Terror of the Autons (3rd Doctor, intro of the Master)
4. Genesis of the Daleks (4th Doctor, origin of the Daleks)
5. Mark of the Rani (6th Doctor, intro of The Rani, an evil Time Lady)
6. Rememberance of the Daleks (7th Doctor)
7. The Mind Robber (2nd Doctor)
8. Doctor Who TV Movie (8th Doctor, its all he had of screen time btw)
9. The Romans (1st Doctor, just a fun episode)
10. Tomb of the Cybermen (2nd Doctor)

There are other good episodes, but those are ones I tend to watch on a regular basis.
