As Maxil has requested list based threads, I thought I’d make one. List your personal top 10 worst Who stories of all time. This applies to both Classic and New (though my list would consist entirely of New Who stories- I need to make one, actually).

A top 20 or 30 list is also acceptable.

Is that for both Classic and New, or just Classic? If it’s the latter, it’s a fine list.

Just for classic, I'll get round to doing a list for NuWho later.

I’m still unsure as to what would go under either of my lists...

I don't think Underworld's quite that bad Wink

I see no one has done a New Who list yet. I’m not surprised- there are too many to count!

I had to change mine because I forgot Time and the Rani, which means Reign of Terror gets a reprieve. Lol

I didn't watch series 11, or I'm sure it would have dominated my list.

I gave up on The Tsuranga Conundrum 20 minutes in on account of being as boring, vacuous, charmless and crass all all fuck. I’ve never gone back to series 11 since.

Arachnids seemed worse at the time, though. Smile

This is meant to be a joint list for New and Classic Who, but it is nevertheless 100% New Who. As dire as some of classic Who sometimes was, it was never as bad as New Who's worst was.

Final caveat: I could add to this list. There is stuff not on this list which, on another day, i would put on instead. There are also other stories i sort of like but which Moffat ruins by really annoying set pieces contained within them - e.g., World Enough & Time and The Doctor Falls with all the quasi-pornographic crap between Missy, The Master and the Doctor that he slips in.

Arachnids in the UK.
Rosa.
The Tsuranga Conundrum.
It Takes You Away.
Love and Monsters.
Aliens in London / WW III.
The Stolen Earth / Journeys Earth - a waste of Julian Bleach.
Nightmare in Silver.
Heaven Sent.
Kill the Moon - the moons a fucking egg.
In the Forest of the Night.
Death in Heaven.
The Husbands of River Song - an unfunny farce.

I really wouldn't know where to start with a New Who thread, plus I haven't seen them all, so that gets me off the hook. Big Grin

I don't think so chappy.

Every episode is available on the I-Player for about 3 more months - including old-scrunchy face herself.
