While Moffat continues to win my vote for "Best", my favorite (and this was very, very difficult) ultimately goes to "Partners in Crime". It's just so much FUN.

My favorite is "Midnight." Yes there's an alien / monster, but the real monsters are the humans. And that makes it so much more frightening. The acting is wonderful, and the confined space really puts everyone (even the viewer) on edge.

The best, though, is "Silence in the Library" / "Forest of the Dead." It's so emotional and deep, creepy yet touching, and the last 10 minutes go from heartbreaking to heartwarming in a natural way. Frankly, this is how Doctor Who should always be: magical and scary, yet with a human soul.

It was between turn left and midnight for me, and turn left took it just because it demonstrated such respect for the overall story that the modern Who series' are crafting.

Ultimately, as brilliant as I think Moffat's two-parter is, I think Turn Left does so much overall to encapsulate the Doctor's worth to defending the Earth whilst interweaving with the past seasons that it has to get my vote. How Donna, Sylvia & Wilf struggle to cope is another level to what most every other episode can offer.

Planet of the Ood remains my favourite though. It has the Ood and it has Lord Percy Percy from Blackadder!

Partners in crime is so much fun. The scene with the Doctor and Donna catching up was just so funny. Tate is also the best sidekick in the show, and that one scene shows why she's better than Martha and Rose.

What Ian said about Turn Left. Though Silence in the Library is a very close second. And when the story behind River Song is finally revealed, maybe I'll switch my vote from Turn Left to the two parter.

Series 4 is just made of good stories. I went with Turn Left as my favorite mainly for Donna and how the world comes crashing down around her. Midnight is my favorite by how minimal it is yet achieves so much. Everyone is so real and the end with The Hostess made me cry.

This is the most difficult of these polls for me. Series 4 has four stories that on any given day I could pick as a favorite for different reasons. I'm going to have to ponder this for a bit before voting.
