best doctor who episodes

As we near the debut of Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor, what better time to rank the 13 best episodes of the Doctor Who revival? It’s been a long road up until the BBC sci-fi series finally cast its first female Doctor, and it’s a journey that has been filled with silly lows and soaring highs (and we have a handy guide just to navigate them). But today we’re only here to list the highs.

Doctor Who is a lot of things: a sci-fi saga, tales from alien crypts, a character drama, a campy children’s show, a fantastical fairy tale. And in its best episodes, it excels at all of them. So, while we count down the days until Whittaker falls from the skies and into our TV sets, let us count down the 13 best Doctor Who episodes of the revival series.

the crown pay gap

The Crown is worth its weight in gold. Except, perhaps, when it comes to its lead star.

The Crown may be Netflix’s most expensive TV production, but it seemed that some expense was spared when it came to star Claire Foy‘s paycheck. Earlier this month, it was revealed that the actress playing the young Queen Elizabeth II was paid less than her co-star Matt Smith, a pay gap that inspired more outrage than usual. What hope do we have for pay equality when the Queen can’t cut a fair paycheck?
