***SPOILER ALERT*** Contains spoilers for all seasons of Doctor Who (2005)
In the lead up to what we imagine is going to be another Doctor Who tearjerker, we’re counting down the 11 saddest episodes of Doctor Who (2005).
11. Waters of Mars
This list is loaded with sacrifice, so what better episode to start us off than Waters of Mars and the most shocking sacrifice of them all. Adelaide Brooke understands better than most that some points in history are indeed fixed.
10. Vincent and The Doctor
09. The End Of Time
Towards the end, Ten really started to grate on me. Too much angst, too much rage. It really was time for him to go. But that’s not to say that we didn’t remember the good times. “I don’t want to go”. Ah, but really, you should.
08. Father’s Day
07. The Doctor’s Wife
06. Forest of The Dead
05. Voyage of The Damned
04. Journey’s End
There are a few tearful moments in this one. Tears of joy for the Children of Time, flying the TARDIS as a big happy family, but tears of bitter sadness as the Doctor cruelly allows Donna to live a pleb, rather than die a hero.
