Doctor Who: 10 Tear-Jerking Moments Of The Revived Series

Get those tissues at the ready.

The revived series of Doctor Who is now nearly 10 years old and over the last decade there's been good moments, fantastic moments, frightening moments and even confusing moments (particularly in any episode written by Steven Moffat that also happens to feature River Song - timey-wimey indeed!). But the moments that fans tend to remember are those which broke their Whovian hearts into two, and it is these moments that are commiserated in this list. Whether it was caused by a companion's exit, a regeneration or by the death of a beloved character, NuWho has had its fair share of tear-joking moments since 2005 and it's no surprise that these have also become some of the most defining and memorable scenes in the show's 51 year history. Doctor Who doesn't shy away from the fact that life as a time traveller isn't always plain sailing and the Doctor's world is as full of as much heartbreak as it is adventure and wonderment. You've got to take the good with the bad, though, so here are the top 10 tear-jerking moments of the revived series so far. You better get those tissues at the ready because these are guaranteed to leave you welling up. The GIFs have been included for effect. You have been warned...
