In hindsight The Eleventh Doctor's tenure really was a mixed bag, wasn't it? A bit of silliness, a good helping of complexity, some incredible dramatic performances and, along the way, lots and lots of genuinely funny moments. Matt Smith is a very clever actor and as the Eleventh Doctor he was a dab hand at flitting between serious and flippant, dramatic and comedic. Often he made the transition in the blink of an eye; sometimes he could be both at the same time. Apparently time heals and it's been some little time now since we bid farewell to Eleven. With the tissues out of reach and the broken hearts of millions of inconsolable fans slowly mending, let's turn our attention to eleven of the funniest moments from the most wonderfully silly of the thirteen silly Doctors.
I'm just a guy who loves words. I discover vast tracts of uncharted enjoyment by chucking words together and coming up with stuff that talks about the things I enjoy and love most. I'm also a massive listaholic, so I'm probably talking about a list, looking at a list or banging away at another What Culture list as you read this. My tone's pretty relaxed and conversational, with a liberal sprinkling of sparkling wit, wilting sarcasm and occasional faux-condescension - with tongue almost always firmly planted in cheek.
