When people started reporting that Doctor Who was leaving Netflix streaming, I did what any reasonable person would do -- hurl myself headlong into denial and bite back the tears. After all, last year Netflix said they were dropping the good Doctor and then they changed their minds. That could happen again, right? Right?!
Alas, while Netflix retains its Who license in the U.K. (only until May), those of us here in the U.S. are counting down the hours until (the absence of) D day.
But, hey! We've still got one last weekend, you and me. One final chance for a healthy bit of binge-watching. So I've assembled 10 episodes -- episodes that stand alone, that won't tempt you to get caught up watching an entire arc (including the bad episodes), and most of all, episodes that show the myriad and wonderful aspects of Doctor Who which make a list like this worth writing at all.
Some notes before we proceed. These are all Nu-Who episodes. The classic stuff comes in multiple part serials, and they tend to run long. The goal is to be able to watch all these episodes and still, you know, have a life. And since the ninth and 12th Doctors only have one season each on the stream, I'm providing one alternative episode for each of them in case you've already watched my first choices to death.
Cool? Cool. Allons-y!
