It was with a lot of disappointment (and admittedly some jubilation on the other hand) that Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith regenerated into Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi at the end of the Doctor Who Christmas special this past December. And although Capaldi’s adventures as the Time Lord don’t kick off on television till later this year, those already missing space and time fairing with Eleven will be pleased to know that you’ll be able to carry on with the bow-tie clad hero… In comic book form!

We’re into the final stretch, Doctor Who returns with the second half of its seventh season in less than 24 hours! How have you been holding up? Did you enjoy our Doctor Who fan art compilation? What did you think of The Eleven Best Episodes From The Eleventh Doctor, Part 1? Well, we hope you liked them, we did it all for you. We’re even running a contest where you could win a Doctor Who Companion Prize Pack!
The first part of our best episodes list covered Season 5, Matt Smith‘s first season, and what I still consider to be one of the finest seasons of Doctor Who, ever. From here on out the picks for our will be pulled from Seasons 6 and 7A, which I’ll admit are a trickier bunch to choose from. It was only a matter of time before the Moffat Era of Who would begin hitting a few bumps along the way. But that’s not to suggest there aren’t some simply spectacular episodes of Doctor Who yet to come! Hit the jump for more of the Eleventh Doctor’s best episodes. Come along, Ponds!
The popularity of Doctor Who has skyrocketed since Matt Smith took over the role of the 900+ – now 1200+ – year old Time Lord, especially here in the States. When the series triumphantly returned in 2005 is was still very much a cult show with a small, yet devoted fanbase. Over the seasons the show’s audience grew. David Tennant‘s four year run as the Tenth Doctor did much to bring the series into the spotlight; ask almost any new-to-Who fan and they’ll say he was their first Doctor. Today, Doctor Who is a bonafide, mega-hit. In the last few weeks leading to this Saturday’s premiere Matt Smith and new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman have been featured on dozens of magazine covers, appeared on late night talk shows, and their faces are plastered on ads everywhere. Doctor Who is BIG.
Which is only fitting, really, as the series enters its golden anniversary, celebrating 50 years. In this, the first part of a two part list – hey, if they can split their seasons in two, why not us? – we’ll be covering the best episodes of the Eleventh Doctor. These episodes are listed chronologically, not in an order of great to greatest. Ready? Let’s dive in, GERONIMO!
Everyone wants to have their own little raggedy Doctor, and while there are plenty of pint size plastic play things resembling the time/space traveling lunatic, none compare to 1:6 scale of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor from HOT TOYS.
With the latest season of Doctor Who having just wrapped up, people are going to have to wait till next year for more timey, wimey adventures. So buying this mini-Doctor is sure to keep even the most impatient nerd amused. Check out the full sized picture after the jump.
