Re: Best Season-long Story arc
The E-Space trilogy was just slapped together though, State Of Decay was even produced before Full Circle and it wasn't until Full Circle that Tom Baker decided to leave the series. And really unlike RTD's seasons JNT's seasons were a bit of a mess most of the time, JNT wasn't a writer so his seveal script editors had to take up the slack.
Still I thought the Tennant years got progressively better in every regard, personally I can't say the same for Matt Smith's seasons.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
