Day 6 - Doctor Who Challenge

My Favourite/Least Favourite Series

Favourite Series

With a long look at the Wikipedia page, I'm going for season 13.  Terror of the Zygons is a big favourite.  Planet of Evil was an interesting story I enjoyed.  Pyramids of Mars is just wonderful, very wonderful.  The Android Invasion was nice and spooky.  The Brain of Morbius was a good Frankenstein story.  Seeds of Doom, well I always like killer plant stories.

Having the fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane is never going to go against it either.

Least Favourite Series

I'd have to go for Series 3 of New Who.  Smith and Jones wasn't a bad tale but the straw p'd me off.  The Jidoon never really worked for me either.  I could never buy into The Shakespeare Code but I did find it fun. I didn't dislike Gridlock really but it did seem a bit heavy on the environmental warning.   The less I have to think about Daleks in Manhattan and Evolution of the Daleks the better.  The Lazarus Experiment would have been good without the family stuff and it being so much set up, Gatiss is always good.  I can't remember 42 :-S  Human Nature and Family of Blood were the stand outs in this series, very good.  Blink was a great horror tale but it wasn't Doctor Who.  Utopia led me to expect a great finale, then we got The Sound of Drums and Last of the Timelords.  Too much Simm and a story I never fully got or enjoyed.  Martha was never written as strong enough.  She was wimpily simpering after the Doctor.  With hindsight Tennant is far from my favourite Doctor too.
