Ahead of The Timey Wimey of Doctor Who, BBC AMERICA’s original special premiering this Saturday (August 18) at 9/8c, we asked readers, “If you could travel back in time and be #newtoWHO again, which episode would you watch as an introduction to the show? Why?”

Congratulations to R Micah Cade, who submitted the winning entry and has won a a full iTunes download of Doctor Who, Season 6. Cade wrote:

“For me, it would be ‘The Girl in the Fireplace.’ It encapsulates perfectly the space Doctor Who occupies at the junction of science fiction and fantasy. It’s got a grand story, delicious pacing, great fashion, spooky sets, tension, and a Doctor who is at one moment dashing and devil-may-care, then a space-traveling Sherlock piecing together a mystery one step ahead of everyone else, only to snap into focus as a guardian and a dangerous Time Lord an instant later.”

Think you can wow our judges? Come back Monday for our final giveaway and another chance to win free downloads Doctor Who on iTunes.
