Invasion of the Dinosaurs and Death to the Daleks- Season 11 is underrated.

Delta and the Bannermen and Dragonfire- both are considered poor by most fans, but I like them both.

My guilty Classic Who story has to be Warriors of the Deep. Yes, the Myrka looks like a panto Horse. Yes, the Silurians are too stocky and yes, the sea base is too bright for it's own good, but I still love this story since it was my first introduction to the Silurians and the Sea Devils.

As for new Who, no question. Love & Monsters.

Doctor Who to me was all about fun. To many people seem to think that DW should be critiqued like it is "The Godfather". If a story wasn't fun to me in ANY way then I simply just didn't watch those episodes again for a good bit of time. Then I would give it another go and then maybe my views changed. DW stopped being fun FOR ME with Peter Davison. Not that I didn't like the 5th doctor but JNT took any and all fun IMHO out of DW. The lack of "monsters" during 5ths tenure is perfect example. The BBC made a fatal error axing Hinchcliffe and horror based stories. Those were FUN. The stories and execution of them from season 18 on are lackluster and most seemed forced. I am watching survival as I type and I just can't get into it as with most McCoy. No interior shots of the Tardis bugs me and I picked up on that even back when it first aired. Horrible! That being said there are not really any from doctors 1-4 that I don't like. Couple of them are blehh but not horrible TO ME. I am a fan of the character(s) so I am not overly critical because it was never meant to be anything but fun.

I like alot of Colin Baker's run, even though it gets some flak. Terror of the Vervoids especially. I am of the opinion that Who doesn't have enough plant-based monsters.

Boom Town The whole conversation between The Doctor and Margaret about him and his responsibilities as well as her character is one I watch a lot. Far more than Fathers Day

This is a favorite of mine as well. Really sums up the Doctor's character post-Time War.

To me, Colin Baker and Slyv McCoy are the "unsung" Doctors. I enjoy most of their stories, especially Baker's first season and McCoy's last season.

When I first got into Doctor Who, I had only seen stories with Davison and McCoy, and I was under the impression that Davison was generally not favored as the Doctor, but now it seems like everyone loves him. I don't know if that's because he was in the new series or he's David Tennant's favorite, but hopefully, Colin and Sylv will get their day as well.

Favorite Stories:
Vengeance on Varos
Revelation of the Daleks
Ghost Light
Survival

Glad to see all the love for the Krotons. I love it, especially when the Krotons' heads spin around. And the arrival scene, when the Tardis crew discuss the smell of the air, is a favorite. Really sells the notion that they're on an alien planet.

Aside from that, I love the Web Planet. Filled with big ideas and big ambitions. The Animus is an interesting baddie, and Billy's confrontation with it is one of his great moments.

My favorite story of all is the Sun Makers.

I agree.

Although not a favorite of mine, I do respect what was attempted on such a small budget and at tiny Lime Grove. It was quite grand and rather impressive in it's scope and ambition. It is also one of the few, if not only, that featured no "people" apart from the TARDIS crew.

The Web Planet looks amazing. I watch Nash's Classic Who reviews where he riffs mercilessly on his "Worst Episodes", and while his critique of Web Planet didn't have very valid points (That...noise...), I had to respect the story for what it tried to accomplish. I want to eventually obtain a copy for myself.

Also his "fix" of the music for the Butterfly People's assault is comedic genius

Space Museum, for sure. A lot of fun for the time. Same for The Chase. It's not amazing but it's super enjoyable.

I also have big soft spots for Delta and the Bannerman and Paradise Towers.

I really like Midnight, which seems to be divisive

I LOVE Midnight. My son asked to watch that one last night. It's brilliant. VERY creepy. The woman who plays Ms. Silvestri really sells it. That's Patrick Troughton's son playing the professor too....

'Androids of Tara' is great. Tom is in fine form. Love the bit from 'Have you got to the part...' wedding interruption, all the way through the whole fight scene
