Series 5 of Doctor Who began airing in the Spring of 2010 and saw many changes within the show, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. The series was the first to be overseen by Steven Moffat and the first without Russell T. Davies since the show returned. Matt Smith took over the role of the Doctor, now in his eleventh incarnation and was joined in the TARDIS by new companion Amelia 'Amy' Pond and later by her bofriend and future husband Rory Williams. This series saw the return of Alex Kingston as guest star from 2008 River Song, the return of the Silurians and the introduction of the newly redesigned Daleks.

I love so much of this series and there were a few that I wanted to choose from, but I went, probably quite obviously, with The Eleventh Hour.

I nearly chose TEH, but I ended up going with the Angels two-parter.

This was a very interesting series. I really didn't gel with Amy Pond at all - and I think (though this may be me mellowing) that she has toned down over the subsequent seasons. Where I think it really works is when it goes back to centring on the Doctor - rather than on Amy. For that reason, I went for TPO/TBB - I think it was a wonderfully bold and brave attempt at an epic climax and, for the most part, it worked.

I still haven't had questions answered though and I really want them answering ... but that's not for here!

I used to think this season was so amazing, but when I look at that list there is really only four stories that I love and they are the three 2 parters and the opener. The rest are all a bit 'meh'. I'm not sure if I have overwatched them, rated them too highly originally or if they just haven't aged well but this isn't the amazing series I thought it was. I've given my vote to the finale.

For me, it comes down to TEH, The Angels 2 parter, Amy's Choice and TPO (less so TBB though)

The one I really love of all of those though is TEH, so that's where my vote went!

I nearly chose TEH based on the fact that it was the first episode I ever saw and so will always be sort of special to me, but my choice went to THE/CB. It's not a very popular story, it seems, but I love it.

I went with The Eleventh Hour, but if it wasn't that it would have been TPO/TBB
