In our quest to name the very best Doctor Who moments of 2011, we sought out one particularly famous fan: Mr. Neil Gaiman himself. Yes, THE Neil Gaiman, the best-selling novelist and the man who wrote the much-beloved Season Six episode, “The Doctor’s Wife,” featuring a female embodiment of the TARDIS.

Our crew visited Mr. Gaiman on the set of BBC America’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!: Royal Pain in the News special, on which he’ll appear as a guest on the Friday, December 23 premiere at 8/7c. Watch as he reveals his favorite Doctor Who moments from Season Six in this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip. He describes one episode as having “sheer barking-mad, screwball audacity.”

What do you think of Neil’s choices? Tell us in the comments:

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
