I want to know. What do you guys think was the saddest episode of Doctor Who?
Personally, I think it was Doomsday (10th Doctor).
That one makes me cry uncontrolably, EVERY STINKIN' TIME.
"I'm burning up a whole sun just to say goodbye to you." Oh.my.gosh.
So, yeah, discuss!
Hello all. Glad to see I started an interesting discussion. I now wish to add to my list of sad episodes.
There are two more now that make cry every time.
-Vincent and the Doctor - I'm sorry but the ending is the most beautiful thing. It really speaks and tells the story of a lot of artists, and how much doubt they have in themselves. It really does something when someone praises an artist. Seeing Van Gogh's reaction to what the guide was saying, and knowing his history, I cry. A lot.
- The Angels Take Manhattan - Self explanatory.
that bit at the end of the doctor's wife where the tardis says hello; I think that just sums up his whole time with the tardis, and it makes me cry everytime.
Since all the really sad regular once have already been mentioned, I would still add the 2011 Chrismas special.The scence there the mother begs not having to see her husband(the love of her live) die just broke my heart.I would also like to add ,when rory is sucked into the crack and stops exsiting...so sad
Am I the only one who loses it at the end of Vincent and the Doctor? Because it happens every time. Every. Damn. Time. I don't know what it is - maybe realizing that something like this actually happening would have meant SO much to someone who could have really used that kind of encouragement. Maybe it's that the experience wouldn't have changed anything for Vincent. Dunno. All I know is that I couldn't walk past Almond Blossoms when I saw it at an exhibition without getting dewy eyed....
You're not the only one. I cry too. Lots of happy tears.
end of time parts 1 and 2 i got 19 seconds into it and started crying , but doomsday = the saddest episode ever
No doubt, Doomsday, also Journey's End.
Doomsday because Rose is my favorite companion, and right after she gave up life with her mother forever, she gets ripped away from the man she loves.
Journey's End because the fact that Donna did all these amazing things, and then she had to just forget every bit of it. She doesn't know about the amazing life she had with the Doctor.
The End Of Time part 2, I was depressed for days. But I agree Doomsday is definitely a close second :(
The last time i cried during an episode was when we meet Amy (i forget the name of the episode) and she waits in the garden. Yes, she waited 36 years in The Girl Who Waited, but she had already been through so much. Just the thought of a 7-year-old sitting outside in the cold, thinking her hero will come and save her in 5 minutes, but then he never comes, breaks my heart. I think that's the saddest episode.
it really does hit you, particularly when we see the boy who waited... and Amy's room in the God Complex
welcome to the ning, btw. very apt profile pic for the current conversation.
I think the only episodes that made me cry and I don't cry much are Dooms Day and The End Of Time
Definitely Doomsday, I cry like a little baby every single time i watch it!
