Who here remembers the classic Doctor Who? Do you have a favourite storyline / Doctor / companion? Why? Do you prefer it to the New Who?
As an opener: As much as I’ve tried to love the new Who I can not. I’ve watched pretty much every episode leading up to Peter Capaldi’s Doctor and, save for one or two episodes, find it severely lacking. The special effects are amazing but it seems to have come at the cost of the storyline.
I love all the Doctors leading up to, and including, Sylvester McCoy. These are my faves per Doctor;
William Hartnell - The Unearthly Child
Patrick Troughton - The Krotons, Seeds of Death
Jon Pertwee - The Deamons, Day Of The Daleks
Tom Baker - Logopolis, Keeper of Traken, Genesis Of The Daleks
Peter Davidson - Castrovalva, Earthshock, Resurrection Of The Daleks, Caves of Androzani
Colin Baker - Revelation of the Daleks, Terror Of The Vervoids, Mindwarp
Sylvester McCoy - Ghost Light, Remembrance of the Daleks
Fave Doctor - Peter Davidson
Fave companion - Ace, followed by Peri (for obvious reasons), Turlogh
Fave enemy - The Master, The Valeyard, The Daleks, The Cybermen
Scariest moment - When we first see the Cybermen in The Tenth Planet
