Please help me create an "Essentials of Doctor Who" playlist, to catch someone up on the show since the reboot.

I'm looking to introduce my wife, a self-professed hater of rubber-headed alien scifi shows and movies, to Doctor Who. She liked Firefly. Rolls her eyes at every Star Trek incarnation, Farscape and Star Wars.
I'd like to compose a playlist that will show her the best Doctor Who episodes of the last few seasons/series since the reboot -- ones that are character-driven and/or just tell a fantastic story, which she'll find appealing but not too cheesy.
What do you think are the most essential episodes of the last seven seasons?
Of those, can you please help me create a season-by-season playlist which minimizes camp and weird-looking aliens, but still tell awesome stories? I want to give her a strong sense of what the show is about without turning her off.
Thanks in advance!
