Our search for the best modern Doctor Who series continues, and this time it’s a big one – incumbent Time Lord Jodie Whittaker’s original series against fan-favourite Doctor David Tennant’s first year in the role.


Yes, that’s right – in our second grouping we’ve got series two up against series 11, and it’s up to you to decide which will go through to the next round of voting.

Do the travels of Ten and Rose still have a place firmly in your heart(s)? Or are the initial adventures of the TARDIS "fam" the only way to go? Vote now and make your choice – or, if you want more of a reminder of what went on in each series, check out our short recaps below.

And has there ever been a more heartbreaking Who moment than the Doctor and Rose’s separation in series finale Doomsday? If there is, we don’t think we could handle it.
