Bottom 5 Episodes/Serials

Well we have a top 5 thread, so why not a bottom 5 to show your dislike of episodes.

So yeah, same format as the top 5 thread but just place your bottom 5 instead, just try and make your answers clear, bla bla bla!

Ok, here's the worst five episodes/serials in doctor who history for me:

5)The Girl Who Waited-The Eleventh Doctor
4) The Curse of the Black Spot-The Eleventh Doctor
3) The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People-The Eleventh Doctor
2) The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe-The Eleventh Doctor
1) A Christmas Carol-The Eleventh Doctor

See a pattern, all Eleventh Doctor stories, and all from around the sixth series. You may think I'm just being an asshole or whatever, but all the worst episodes seem to be from that era.

That isn't the word I was thinking of, the word I was thinking of starts with a T...

Of those five the only one that comes close is Curse of the Black Spot, and this isn't even me defending Series 6, I'd put Night Terrors on a par with Black Spot.

The Girl Who Waited is phenomonal, The Flesh 2 parter is mainly let down by needing to be a 2 parter, part one is actually rather good, The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe isn't great, but it's more lightweight than bad, and Christmas Carol for all it's faults (too convoluted by far) is good.

Your homework is to watch Fear Her on an endless loop until you learn the error of your ways...

Actually, I though Night Terrors was one of the better episodes of series 6.

WHAT THE FUCK????? I can't contain myself no longer, how the fuck can you think it's phenomenal? It is terrible. Boring. It's only about Amy getting older and better because the Doctor cocked up with the TARDIS. No, I'm sorry dude, but I can't accept that. The ganger two parter wins as the most boring doctor who, and the story it self is so awful. The two Xmas specials were awful. All these Victorian Xmas specials have gotten so boring. I'm sick of them, at least in the RTD era, there was more variety.

I've seen Fear Her, and it wasn't so bad. Granted I didn't like it much because the doctor wasn't in it (I tend to give episodes without the doctor in them negative reviews. That's the only reason I don't like blink much. Then again I've not seen that one in years.). Fear Her was bad, but nowhere near as bad as the one's I put up there. Love & Monsters is the worst Tennant episode probably, but that's still not as bad as a lot of series 6.

Re: Bottom 5 Episodes/Serials

This is so much easier than the best five...
Time and the Rani: only time I've ever turned Doctor Who off (of course, teh video was still recording, but nevertheless, I just said, 'Oh, turn over' when my mum wanted to watch Corrie).
Silver Nemesis: Self-indulgent rubbish by a writer who liked jazz and didn't like Doctor Who.
That one last Saturday. Sorry.

And now it gets more difficult... Planet of the Dead? Horns of Nimon (embarrassing when I was 12, and now fun but still awful)? Claws of Axos (worth trying, but stil some awful production slips...)?

Yeah, that one was pretty bad compared to the rest of the Hartnel era. I find it tragic that great sixties serials such as the Tenth Planet have missing parts, and then a stinker like Web Planet has all it's parts.

Ah, what else survives? Oh, Gunfighters, of course. Pretty dreadful, but after that they're missing or incomplete...

Reign of Terror is now animated Ep 4 and 5
The Crusade has half it's episodes and the other two have been fan reconstructed
The Masacre and Marco Polo can also be found as Fan Reconstructions

Though I confess, I haven't bothered trying to watch the Marco Polo reconstruction yet because it's so long. I do not to watch the Fan Reconstructions of all of Hartnell at some point, I've tried the Historicals aside from Marco Polo, but, there are still many of the SciFi oriented Hartnell Reconstructions I need to watch, so, I'll probably give Marco Polo a shot when I go through Hartnell again

POTD: Yet again an average episode. The weakest of the specials.

Re: Bottom 5 Episodes/Serials

I quite enjoy "Doctor Who" actually, even the rubbish ones, and in my opinion life's too short to make "bottom 5" lists or anything similar.
