This was an easy one to do, as I’d seen all but one of these by the time they announced the nominees. Easy, since three were Doctor Who episodes. I almost hadn’t though. I had The End of Time and the entire 1st Matt Smith season on my PVR, unwatched, until early April. I couldn’t let go of David Tennant, I guess. I worried that Matt Smith couldn’t possibly live up to him. OK, so he can. I ended up watching all 16 episodes (EoT + series 5 + A Christmas Carol) over the space of 3, maybe 4 days. Not a lot of sleep that week. I enjoyed all the episodes, and truly any of them could be up on this list. I’m interested to see how the voting pans out on this one. That being said, I will be putting “Fuck Me” on top, because, well, hey, that was fun to write… ;).  Also, the first time I watched it, I got the song stuck in my head for about two weeks. Not good with the rug-rats running about. When I watched it again (and you can too using the link below!), it banged around up there for another couple of weeks. It’s there now, just because I’m looking at the title. Ear Worm! The Lost Thing, BTW, was my unseen short. It’s good too, but not Doctor Who good. Sorry Shaun.
