As we edge closer and closer to the beginning of Doctor Who series 9, we're more and more excited about what we've got to look forward to this year. Daleks, Missy, mysterious highwaymen, Vikings, guitar solos... It's gonna be a blast.

But today we're taking a look back and remembering the adventures that the Doctor and Clara have already had together before we see them run off into new ones.

So without further ado, here are our favourite moments from Doctor Who series 8. In descending order...
