Thankfully Digital Spy have risked infringing copyright law and provided clips to accompany their own list of classic moments featuring the first eight Doctors…
Dalek Invasion of Earth – the Doctor locks Susan out of the TARDIS
Tomb of the Cybermen – “They… sleep in my mind and I forget”
The Three Doctors – “It’s all quite simple. I am he and he is me.”
The Ark in Space – “Indomitable!”
Earthshock - the Doctor faces off the CyberLeader
Revelation of the Daleks – the Doctor faces off Davros
Survival - “If we fight like animals, we’ll die like animals!”
TV Movie – the kiss.
It’s a great selection but it does have a drawback. Listing these 8 clips as greatest moments not only does the 1963-1996 era a disservice it also underlines how narrowly conceived Doctor Who’s Greatest Moments is.
