Top 10 TV Doctor Who Stories

I've seen recons of all the missing stories but I decided to go with existing stories only. Otherwise Evil of the Daleks, The Daleks' Masterplan and The Abominable Snowmen would make the cut.


1) Ghost Light
2) Warriors' Gate
3) The Deadly Assassin
4) The Seeds of Doom
5) The Aztecs
6) Curse of Fenric
7) The Ribos Operation
8) Remembrance of the Daleks
9) Pyramids of Mars
10) Kinda

Re: Top 10 TV Doctor Who Stories

I decided to include recons, but I can see your reasoning for not. In chronological order:

- Marco Polo
- Evil of the Daleks
- Inferno
- The Deadly Assassin
- Warriors' Gate
- Kinda
- Revelation of the Daleks
- Remembrance of the Daleks
- Ghost Light
- The Curse of Fenric

Pyramids of Mars over Inferno?! You crazy?!

Re: Top 10 TV Doctor Who Stories

Inferno would be my favourite Pertwee serial along with The Silurians and the rest of S7. I love too many Doctor Who stories .

Pyramids of Mars is just that good. Seeds of Doom is the show at its scariest though.

In no particular order and without any real thought:

Caves of Androzani
Tomb of the Cybermen
Genesis of the Daleks
Ghost Light
Curse of Fenric
The Invasion
The Hand of Fear
The Talons of Weng-Chiang
City of Death
Spearhead from Space

Nice! Put some of those on my own list at first. Tomb of the Cybermen would be my favourite surviving Troughton and the finest TV Cybermen story. Though that's damning it with mild praise.

Re: Top 10 TV Doctor Who Stories

Hard to say for me, as there is a lot I havent watched (about 3 dozen dvds I need to, and recently been watch some Colin Bakers, too new for me to judge)

But my top ten is

The Time Meddler
The Tomb of the Cyberman
The Invasion
Planet of the Daleks
Genesis of the Daleks
Horror of Fang Rock
City of Death
Remembrance of the Daleks
Ghostlight
Curse of Fenric

Honorable mentions

The Daemons
The Two Doctors (loved Pat in this)
Black Orchid

Dunno what I'm more pleased about in this thread. The frequence of McCoy stories or the lack of Catherine Tate ones .

The last episode of Pyramids was run towards the end of the National Film Theatre weekend of old episodes back in 1983. My then 12-year-old sister, and already a massive fan, turned round to me and said "I didn't realise it could be this good!"

Beyond that... is this a Top 10 from the original run, or is it just that no-one nominated anything from the new run?

I think people are more likely to put classic serials in their Top 10 rather than the new stuff, fun as it is.

Speaking personally, I honestly forgot the new series existed when I made my list. There are obviously good new series stories (Empty Child/Doctor Dances, Amy's Choice, etc.), but I don't think I'd replace anything on my list with a new series story.

I'd possibly put The Girl Who Waited on my list.

Maybe.

On a good day.

Re: Top 10 TV Doctor Who Stories

The Caves of Androzani
Vincent and the Doctor
Greatest Show in the Galaxy
Father's Day
Remembrance of the Daleks
Logopolis
The Wedding of River Song
The Talons of Weng Chiang
The War Games (more for respect at the sheer ballsy moves they pulled)
Revelation of the Daleks

This list could very easily change (barring the top few) if you asked me again tomorrow.

I'd put A Christmas Carol on there at a push.
