Least Favourite Regeneration Story

Well we've had best regeneration story and best post regeneration story, but how about worst regeneration story?

Which regeneration story was worst in your opinion?

Re: Least Favourite Regeneration Story

My vote would probably be different if I saw all of them, but I've only seen War Games, Planet of The Spiders, Logopolis, The TV Movie, Parting of Ways, and End of Time, and out of that, War Games is the one I enjoyed least as it just dragged on for too long. Plus it just doesn't feel like a regeneration story. Out of what I've seen TV Movie is probably the worst send off, bit this isn't a "which did it the worst" poll, this is a least favourite poll.

The War Games is a real triumph of storytelling. One of the finest regeneration stories, along with Logopolis and Androzani.

Re: Least Favourite Regeneration Story

Personally, I didn't care for it too much as I got a bit bored in it. I was a bit younger when I last saw it though, so my opinion may have changed. But at the end of the day, I like all the regeneration stories I've seen, just had to pick my least favourite. I don't really have much against war games. Just my least favourite which is what the poll is for.

Re: Least Favourite Regeneration Story

Really unfair to mention Time and the Rani, because its easily the worst of them all. Whatever issues anyone can have about End of Time, its still well made enough, and Willfred is a lovely companion.

Not to mention, its really a post-regeneration story. Its Seventh's first story. Its like Castrovalva that opened with Tom Baker regenerating - tahts not a regeneration story, is it?

So I'm gonna ignore that option, and say that my least favorite of the rest of them is, really, the TV Movie. As both that, and as a post-regeneration story (rather unique in that regard), its rather lacking, because the Seventh Doctor doesn't really do anything. The only thing he's supposed to do is take care of the Master's remains, and he can't even do that. Plus, his death doesn't quite have the weight of his previous, or his later incarnations.

So even without having seen Tenth Planet and Planet of the Spiders, I'm going with that still.

Easiest choice in ages: Time and the Rani. Also an easy choice for Least Favourite Story full stop (no, let's be fair. Silver Nemesis runs it close...)

Silver Nemesis is a terrible story indeed. So shitty.

Heh, had a brainfart and voted my favourite instead of my least favourite.

Gotta be rani, followed by spiders & logopolis.

Re: Least Favourite Regeneration Story

Even as a massive 80s and McCoy fan, I can't say there is a worse regeneration story.

I like Silver Nemesis though. My first season.

Meh, there were worse and better Cybermen stories. SN is probably in the bottom three though.
