By coincidence, my favorite episode is also The Seeds of Doom. It was the first story that I ever saw back when the classic show used to be ran on The Sci-Fi channel and I have never seen any better. I can't wait for it to be released on dvd someday.

Here's my list going through each Doctor:
1st Doctor: The Dalek Invasion of Earth
2nd Doctor: The Invasion
3rd Doctor: Planet of the Spiders
4th Doctor: Genesis of the Daleks or Terror of the Zygons (I can't decide between them!)
5th Doctor: The Five Doctors (Does it count?)
6th Doctor: Revelation of the Daleks or Attack of the Cybermen (Can't decide!)
7th Doctor: Remembrance of the Daleks or The Curse of Fenric
8th Doctor: Human Resources (Can it count? It's an audio and plus its set in my hometown)
9th Doctor: Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways
10th Doctor: The Stolen Earth (Since I couldn't choose every episode from the 10th Doctor's era (I love them all, except Love and Monsters) I had to pick The Stolen Earth)

Not sure I could pick just one all time favorite but some of my faves (in no particular order but I'll try to pick at least one fave from each Doctor)

Dalek Invasion of Earth
Tomb of the Cybermen
Inferno
Pyramids of Mars
Robots of Death
Earthshock (1st Doctor Who I ever saw)
Revalation of the Daleks
Curse of Fenric
The Empty Child/Doctor Dances
Dalek
Blink
HumanNature/Family of Blood
"The Master" trilogy from Season 3

There's still much classic WHO I've never seen.

The introduction of the classic series on DVD and the new series has re-ignited my interest in a big way.

I want to see weng chiang, but strangely it's not on the internet. You can watch The Twin Dilema, Fear Her, or The TV movie with ease, but the favorite episode of fans and production...

I find myself often going back to the black and white days of Troughton, and especially Hartnell.

There is just something about them that keeps bringing me back, and enjoying most of them.

As for a favorite, cannot pick a single story, much too hard.

Totally agree with you on these. As for the 6th Doctor, it would have to be Attack of the Cybermen. It was so outrageously violent...poor Lytton!

I know I've answered this before somewhere else, but I think many of my answers will have changed in the past couple of months, since I've gone back and re-watched many of the old DVDs over again recently. So here's my list, Doctor-by-Doctor. After I post it, I'm going to go dig up my last one and see how they differ. Smile

First Doctor: The Dalek Invasion of Earth
Second Doctor: The Invasion
Third Doctor: The Sea Devils
Fourth Doctor: Genesis of the Daleks
Fifth Doctor: The Caves of Adrozani
Sixth Doctor: Terror of the Vervoids
Seventh Doctor: tie between Remembrance of the Daleks and The Curse of Fenric
Eighth Doctor: given that there's only one televised episode to choose from, well...
Ninth Doctor: The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances
Tenth Doctor: Blink

I have a tough time naming the best episode of the classic series... though off the top of my head, "Pyramids of Mars," "City of Death," and "The Happiness Patrol" were a few of my favorites.

The best episode of the new series is so much easier: "Blink," hands down. Smile

Okay, I'll say it. Anything with Tegan in it.

Especially Kinda and Snakedance, when she has red teeth and red eyes...and that really deep (dare I say sexy) voice.

Its is hard to pick one, but I'll try and I'll tell you why. I'm going with Ambassadors of Death because it's a great story that represents all of Doctor Who's best attributes:

!. A charismatic Doctor.
2. A competent assistant/companion.
3. A setting and scenario that even a non-Who fan can relate to.
4. An outer space threat that is not an invasion.
5. A fully realized story that doesn't feel rushed or padded.

I realize that a lot of stories could fit this criteria, but I often go back to this one myself when I want to watch a Who and can't decide.

I hear you, brother.

If only they had done a "Time Crash 2" this year...with Tegan and early Donna on board.

As far as best episodes, having rewatched some No. 9 this past weekend, I have to say "The Empty Child" two-parter holds up even better than I remembered. All those Torchwood episodes made me forget what a good character Captain Jack once was.

I'm a huge fan of Sunmakers too. I know a lot of other people would not classify this as a fan fav, but if you could see all the layers and layers of red tape and taxation we have to maneuver through just to sell you a product, you'd want to toss the tax man off a few tall buildings yourself.
