80's Who was quite fond of trilogies, but which one gets your vote?

E-Space trilogy, by default. It is the most consistent of the lot. It doesn't have a Resurrection or a Terminus letting it down.

I think I'd be fonder of the Mater Returns trilogy if it truly had been the final showdown with the Master and Castrovalva really had been his final demise (but because it wasn't it all feels like a rather pointless, wasted venture).

Full Circle, State Of Decay and Warriors’ Gate are all great. I’m not the biggest fan of any of the New Beginnings trilogy myself. I’ll also be controversial and say that I like all of the Black Guardian trilogy- even Terminus. Revelation and Remembrance are superb, though Resurrection is far from being a favourite of mine. What were the ‘Ace Trilogy’ stories again?

New Beginnings, three stories in series that are among the best imo - also marking the end of an era.

Civil War is close enough. I like Resurrection a lot even if parts are sub-par.

What is the Ace Trilogy? I know Dragonfire and the Happiness Patrol were sold together ... or is it the Ace Background stories in 26?

The others are good enough, only slightly dull in parts.

I presume the Ace trilogy means the Ace-centric focus going on in the last three stories of Season 26 (Ghostlight, Gurse of Fenric, Survival).

If so, I’m tempted to vote for that personally. Though it’s a contest between that and E-Space.

The Ace trilogy without a doubt. I also like to call it the Evolution trilogy, as all three stories have themes about evolution and the beginning of time. In Ghost Light, Light wanted to set the course of the human race back into a devolved nature, so they couldn't have free will. In Curse of Fenric, the Doctor is literally fighting against the first form of Evil itself, and the Vampires/Haemavores were all linked back to ancient times, and finally Survival is about a person's form of primal state, their id being unleashed, how we could devolve if we allowed our id to take precedence over any form of control, much like our Ego/Super Ego. Quite frankly, not only does all three stories develop Ace's character extraordinarily well, but how Marc Platt, Ian Briggs and Rona Munro talk about Evolution is absolutely stupendous.

Correct.

There’s some Jungian psychological undertones in Survival as well, especially in what seems to feature Ace confronting her own Shadow in the form of her ‘sister’. According to Jung, the shadow must be confronted and embraced in order to embed into one’s psyche, but not indulged too much to the point where it consumes you (as with Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, Jekyll and Hyde (which also bares thematic resemblances to Ghost Light) etc), as it serves as a binary opposite to one’s ‘light’. The shadow usually appears as a vicious animal within one’s dream (and one of the same sex as the dreamer), though may appear more intelligent than initially obvious upon further inspection.

Anyway, enough of that. I’m going for the Ace Trilogy.

i always hated when writers try to cover evolution, they never seem to understand a thing about it

The e-space trilogy.

Then the Black Guardian one.

Then the Dalek trilogy.

I can't say I've ever really remotely considered them a trilogy (same goes for the Dalek one), but since they're there I went for the Ace one.
I don't like the Master trilogy much at all, and have gone right off E-space of late (save Decay). I still really like the Guardian trilogy though.

The Ace trilogy.

Ghost Light, Fenric and Survival is the best run of stories since The Myth Makers, Daleks' Masterplan and the Massacre.

The E Space trilogy. Doctor 4, Romana 2 and K9 just happen to be my favourite Doctor/companion combination and I like all three serials very much (especially the weird/surreal 'Warriors Gate').    
I was almost tempted to vote for the Dalek Civil War set of stories but the messy and uneven 'Resurrection' lets the side down, I'm afraid.
