I'm covering the tearjerkers so it seems only right to balance it out with funny bits.

Before I begin I should point out that I have an odd sense of humour. What I find funny might be the total opposite to you, so I apologise if I am about to give you what you consider to be 10 boring scenes from the show. If, however, you have better ones, feel free to share them Smiley

Pompous, self opinionated idiot!


This scene, I think, speaks for itself. At the end of an otherwise tense story, this bit of light relief was just perfect and was brilliantly played by all. It's always fun to see the Doctor make a bit of a fool of himself and this is one of my favourites.

I absolutely love this scene and, sad as it sounds, look forward to it every time I watch. Despite the fact I know it's coming it doesn't get any less funny.

Jon Pertwee was an absolute master of comic timing and was able to make the most boring of scenes seem very funny with nothing more than a sideways glance. This scene is an absolute cracker.

I had totally forgotten about this scene. I remember laughing when I saw it but totally forgot about it until now. I think JP and the Brig played it so well.

An excellent scene from an excellent story. A great choice for inclusion.

You know, I've seen this story a few times and I don't remember that bit. I obviously don't pay enough attention. Quite funny though.

Awesome start to your top ten. I think some of the humour from the classic series has aged badly and dated, but this is still funny.

Great Choice P-P Smiley Pertwee was a wonderful, comic actor (the likes of which we sadly don't see any more) and I think this scene alone is a lovely little tribute to him and Nick Courtney.

This is just one of smoe brilliantly funny moments with the Third Doctor. I think his humour is one of the reasons I like him so much. It's subtle, but classic comedy and played for laughs rather than stupidity which we sometimes see today.

I think that's why it works so well. It's just innocent humour. Recently the humour in the show has come with a *wink wink, nudge nudge* element to it. Sometimes it's funny, other times it's lame. This is an example of great funny, innocent humour.

I speak...


The Eleventh Doctor is amongst the funniest, so it wasn't hard to find some great stuff for inclusion, but one that stands out to me most is his 'I speak...' lines. So far we have had 'baby' and 'cat', but my favourite, which you can see in the clip, is his announcement that he can speak horse.

I speak baby is my favourite of the lot, though Susan the horse did make me laugh!

I agree. His conversations with Stormageddon were awesome!

I don't know how you would narrow down Matt's scenes. He is by far the funniest Doctor we've had. Even moreso than Troughton or TB. My list would be full of his scenes.

This!

However, this is a good choice. His 'I speak' phases along with '... are cool' statements are such a huge part of his character.

Matt is very funny, I think, because he is such a physical performer. I think there is a fine line though and sometimes, no matter how hard he tries, the writing sometimes has him looking a bit silly. These lines of his are good, but they are also done now.

I speak baby is probably my favourite. Was funny with Stormy, but hilarious with baby Melody.

I think just about every "I speak" line is just plain absurd. I mean, really. "I speak baby"? Seriously? There's a line between funny and stupid. Every time I hear one I just want to get up and scream "JUST BECAUSE THE TARDIS HAS TRANSLATION CIRCUITS DOES NOT MEAN HE CAN SPEAK CAT!!!" Such an... odd choice, to be polite.
