THE READERS' POLL 2010

14. The Boy Who Saved The Proms - 0.33%
13. The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood - 0.49%
12. Vampires of Venice - 0.66%
11. Victory of the Daleks - 0.74%

10. Death of The Doctor
Wow, not even a Doctor Who story (although it is really), enough of you voted for this (0.82% of the vote) to get it into the Top Ten (beating off some "proper" Who episodes...) Read the Blogtor review of The Sarah Jane Adventures two~parter HERE.

9. The Beast Below
This early Series 5 story didn't make it into Blogtor's own Top 10 but plenty of you have much lurve for The Moff's political Space Whale Royal mystery (2.1%). Read the review of this ep HERE.

8. The Lodger
Living at number eight (finished higher in the Blogtor Top 10), the would~be return of Meglos wasn't to be, though it did rake up 3.1% in the vote. Visit the Blogtor mini~site for this episode HERE.

7. Amy's Choice
The next three stories were very close in the vote with not much between them. Gaining 6.8% this story also sat at number seven on the Blogtor run~down of 2010.

6. A Christmas Carol
Despite being a fairly new episode, the Crimbolicious Spesh enthralled a number of you (6.9%). Read the Blogtor review of the DVD HERE.

5. The End of Time Part 2
Just edging in, having aired on Jan 1, 2010, Davey T's dying moments didn't please you guys as much as it did Blogtor (it finished at the top). It gained 7.4% of the vote and you can read the review HERE.

4. The Time of Angels/Flesh & Stone
The return of the Weeping Angels tightened the trousers of many, though not everyone it should be said, gaining 9.2% in the countdown.

3. The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang
This year's Fez~tastic finale gathered 16.1% of the vote. Visit the Blogtor mini~site tribute to the two~parter HERE.

2. The Eleventh Hour
Moff's third story in the Top 5 displayed that he really hit the ground running with his first series in charge. The haired Scotsman's opener won 22.4% of the vote, just missing out on the top spot by one percent. Read the Blogtor review of this ep HERE.

1. Vincent & The Doctor
Who would've thunk it? Richard Curtis comes along and pleases everyone with his first stab at Doctor Who. The "funnyman" gathered 22.5% for his beautiful look at Van Gogh. Visit the Blogtor mini~site tribute to this episode HERE.

I'd have thrown the Death of the Doctor out, and disqualified the voters who voted for it, if only for the totally rubbish "monsters" brought back old memories of tin foil and green bubble wrap!

While I put them in another order, I did get the top 3. Even though I really only voted for Big bang, not the Pandorica opens. Pandorica was a good enough episode, but for me, the story only comes to life in the concluding episode.

I only liked EoT2 and Vincent this year. If someone had told me I could vote for Death of the Doctor...

Too much 'scary for kids' and pseudo-clever timey-wimey in Moffat's Who -- Not enough character moments that ring true.
