Doctor Who: 10th Anniversary message from Tom

The Radio Times has shared a message from Tom for the 10th Anniversary of the new Doctor Who.

Dear Nu-Who,

Happy Tenth Birthday. I'm just so glad you came back to give a whole generation of children the same brilliant nightmares I remember suffering, from your original incarnation - which helped shape me into the wildly unbalanced adult, with an over active imagination, I am today.

The Radio Times also included the spoon fight in Tom's guest episode, in a round up of the best moments so far of Peter Capaldi's 12th Doctor.

The Doctor didn’t really get on with Robin Hood (Tom Riley) – and he certainly gave him what for in this great fight scene where he defeated the Prince of Thieves with nothing more than a piece of cutlery.
