Carrying on with our fun series of list articles this week, we’ve compiled a top 10 of the best quotes and one-liners in Doctor Who since 2005.
Featuring examples from the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, Captain Jack Harkness and the Ood, this was a very difficult list to narrow down to just 10 entries – thanks in no small part to the number of comedy writers that have worked on Doctor Who since the series returned.
And keeping things seasonal, we kick off with this lovely little quote from a previous Christmas special…

5. It’s a fez, I wear a fez now; fezzes are cool.

4. You are the best, you know why? Cause you’re so thick! You’re Mister Thick Thickitey Thick-face from Thicktown, Thickania. And so is your Dad!

Of course, the big question is: did we miss any?
