Doctor Who has generated an ungodly amount of deleted scenes over the years.

While we don't have an exact figure, the amount of footage filmed and then never used must number in the thousands of hours, stemming all the way back to the show's debut in 1963.

There's probably more that's been deleted than was ever aired! Was all of it good? Probably not, but still!

Some of the deleted scenes left on the cutting room floor were good though. But rather than going through several tons worth of footage, you can sit back, relax, and let us do the hard work for you.

You're welcome.

We've rounded up some of the best, funniest, and most heartwarming deleted scenes from across Doctor Who's long history. Some are over and done with in seconds, while others are much longer, but either way, many would've undoubtedly become iconic had they ever been included in their respective episodes.

Let's kick things off with a rather adorable moment from Series 2...

10. All Of The Cuteness

In the hearts of many Whovians, the Doctor's one true romance was with Rose Tyler.

She was the one who pulled him out of despair after the Time War, and who literally broke into the heart of time itself to rescue him.

In Rose's final story as a regular companion, she and her intergalactic bae have to save the Earth from both the Cybermen and the Daleks. They succeed, but at the cost of their relationship, and their poignant goodbye would've been even harder to watch had this sequence been kept in.

Nothing particularly special happens: it's just the two of them walking around, holding hands, and generally being adorable.

The chemistry between Billie Piper and David Tennant is unreal, and the two come off as an actual, real-life couple.

This would've taken place right before Jackie tells them about "the ghosts", making this the last nice moment between the two before everything went wrong.

Someone pass the Kleenex - it's crying time.
