doctor who laughing

A show more famed for making its viewers hide behind the sofa, it’s easy to forget that Doctor Who has provided us with some brilliantly witty and downright hilarious moments over the years. And sometimes, Doctor Who is as much about the scenes that make us chuckle as it is about any others; it’s been that way since Patrick Troughton put a cheeky spin on William Hartnell’s grandfather figure.

The Doctor’s not just a physical comedian though, and both he and his companions have given us some wonderfully funny one-liners since the show was revived eight years ago. Here are 25 of the funniest lines from the show in animated gif form; feel free to add your favourites in the comments!
