The Doctor: Between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?

The Curator: …to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly, the most popular, great painter of all time, the most beloved. His command of color the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world…no one had ever done it before. Perhaps, no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.”  

Season 5 Episode 10 “Vincent and The Doctor”

When anybody asks me why I watch Doctor Who, why i’m such a fan, why they should even give this show a try, I make them watch this episode. There are so many phenomenal episodes for a show that has been on for decades, but this one pulls every heart string in the body with Vincent Van Gogh. It’s exactly why I love Doctor Who.
