13 Badass Doctor Who Moments That Made Us All Cheer

Come on, look at him! No plan, no backup, no weapons worth a damn

€œBadass€ is not usually the word associated with Doctor Who. But believe it or not, every once in a while it happens. Most of the time, but not exclusively, it€™s because of the Doctor. The Doctor is the boss; a unique flavor of badass separated from the conventional image of a badass. Instead of using a gun or his muscles all he has is his intelligence that can topple countries with just four words and defeat gods and demons. Basically, he is the Batman in every versus argument. But even Batman cannot make bowties cool. We are here to relive those moments of badassness that made as cheer. As a rule of this list, the word badass implies that the moments listed here should show a person doing something deserving their badass statues. So moments that doesn€™t fit that particular category unfortunately doesn€™t count no matter how awesome they are: Sorry, John Hurt reveal. Sorry, guy that can count to 13. Also -- a special sorry to the Doctor€™s sacrifice in Caves to Androzani; which was heroic but not badass. Take comfort in the knowledge that if they did count, they would be high up in this list. Admittedly, most in this list are from the new series. But that is only because it is in the new series that the writers fully committed to the idea that the Doctor is badass. Make the Second Doctor neutralizing a Cyberman, and the Third Doctor fighting the Master as an honorary mention.

Yeah, I’ve been held back more times than I can count, which is probably why I got held back so many times.
