10. The Dominators
9. The King’s Demons

5. The Time Monster
4. Time and the Rani
3. Time-Flight
2. Underworld
1. Warriors of the Deep

New (this will be hard- special mentions are for The Idiot’s Lantern, Doomsday, Last Of The Time Lords, The Doctor’s Daughter, Journey’s End, Planet Of The Dead, Let’s Kill Hitler, The Wedding Of River Song, Asylum of the Daleks, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, Nightmare in Silver, Kill the Moon, In the Forest of the Night, etc- there are too many to count):

9. The End Of Time
8. Love and Monsters
7. Fear Her
6. The Tsuranga Conundrum (or however it’s spelt)
5. New Earth

Yes, but why would I want to put myself through all that? Lol
Besides as I say, I really wouldn't know where to start, as I could probably list all the New Who episodes I find acceptable, without even going into double figures. ;-)
Edit: sorry I can't seem to access the buttons to quote when I'm using my phone.

Go into the web version when using your phone if you want to quote, as it gives you an optional icon ‘quote’ on the respective post. It’s much easier that way- I do that.

Thanks Bernie.

Of course. Though I’d prefer ‘Marx’ myself. Smile

Actually, I think I am on the Web version but I still don't see any buttons, apart from the edit and delete function.
No matter, I'll get by. :-)

Any excuse for a Troughton quote though. ;-)

Having said all that, I still plan to watch Twice upon a Time and Resolution at some point soon, but that's probably as much New Who as I can manage in one year. Lol

You sure you’re on the Web version? Is there a link to the ‘mobile version’ at the bottom of the page? If not, you’re on the mobile version. Press the icon on the furthest top right of the screen if so, and you can get into the web version. There should be a quote option after that.

Never mind. It’s pretty much arbitrary anyway.

Ah!
I see what you mean, thanks.
It's on the hamburger drop drown thingy.
I think I'll stick with the mobile version though because having to navigate whilst zoomed up to be able to read anything is a pain in the arse on the Web version.
But thanks anyway for the tech support.

Yeah- I only use the web version if I want to specifically quote someone, as it is a royal pain in the arse otherwise. Glad I could help, anyway!

Classic and NuWho combined:

1. Arachnids in the UK
2. The Tsuranga Conundrum
3. Twice Upon a Time
4. The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos
5. Kerblam
6. Resolution
7. The Ghost Monument
8. The Magician's Apprentice/The Witch's Familiar
9. Hell Bent
10. Dark Water/Death in Heaven

Nothing from TruWho made the cut, and to my surprise, neither did anything from the RTD era. It was inevitable that Series 11 would comprise at least 50% of the list due to its indescribably abysmal acting and storytelling, and the Capaldi era's postmodern desecrations of beloved classic series icons drowned out the awful yet less damaging dregs of the RTD era. Not even Warriors of the Deep stood a chance of making it into the top twenty.

To be honest, I’d have probably included a myriad more series 11 stories if I’d actually properly watched them. Arachnids and Tsuranga were the only two I actually sat down to watch- the first three episodes were basically background noise whilst I was busy with other things, and I skipped the rest of the season. I caught the last 10 minutes of Rosa whilst paying attention, though- the implementation of that song and the sheer mawkishness of the scenes made me feel physically sick, so it’d probably be on my list if I watched it in full.

And my New Who list is also a worst of all time list.

Some of these stories I haven't watched since they aired. I really have no desire to watch anything post-Series 5 again.

Hey come on, Maxil. There are some good ones post-5. Impossible Astronaut, Night Terrors, Girl Who Waited, God Complex, Crimson Horror are all fine to great. Even Capaldi's era has a few gems like Deep Breath, Mummy on the Orient Express, the Under the Lake 2parter, The Pilot and Oxygen. Wink

Maybe I'll wait until they do a "special edition" version of each episode where they digitally insert McCoy into every episode and then I'll watch them LOL
