Best: Peter Capaldi in general
Episode: All of them, but "Into the Dalek" is a highlight.
Why they were great moments: After years of a Doctor with a young face, there was hesitation among parts of the fan base of returning to a world-weary Time Lord. But they needn’t have worried. Whether you thought the series was flawless, awful, or just uneven, Capaldi brought the acting chops every time. Silly or sad, intense or idiotic, he managed to balance an alien and, at times, intensely dislikable regeneration of the Doctor. Making audiences root for cold, calculating protagonist to find his humanity is not an easy feat.
