I'm suprised to not see Attack in there, iank. Like me, I thought you were a big fan of that one. 26th maybe? ;)

Probably. It fell slightly last time I watched it, though not too far. It happens sometimes; the last-but-one time watched I didn't enjoy State of Decay as much as I always had done before, but then on the most recent viewing I fell in love with it again.

Can't promise these are in order, but here we go (apologies to Hartnell but I simply haven't seen enough completed stories of his to put them in). There's a few which may raise eyebrows...

1) Caves Of Androzani
2) Robots Of Death
3) The War Games
4) Talons Of Weng-Chiang
5) Inferno
6) Mind Of Evil
7) City Of Death
8) Nightmare Of Eden (the script's funny!)
9) Power Of Kroll (I know, but I like the location work)
10) Genesis Of The Daleks
11) Remembrance Of The Daleks
12) Revelation Of The Daleks
13) Earthshock
14) The Two Doctors (can't beat Patrick/Fraser in colour)
15) Vengeance On Varos
16) Curse Of Fenric
17) Ghost Light
18) Survival (perhaps Ainley's best-written material for the Master and his best performance)
19) Ark In Space
20) Terror Of The Zygons (apart from Nessie)
21) The Girl Who Waited (are we including Nu Who)?
22) Blink
23) Mummy On The Orient Express
24) Human Nature/Family Of Blood
25) Warrior's Gate

I love Power of Kroll, it's definitely in my top 40! :D

I presume we are including NuHu, there's just none that high for me (though I'd probably put Empty Child and Time of Angels somewhere in the late 20s). ;)

Out of date now since I stopped watching NuPu, but that doesn't effect the Top 25. :P :lol:

25 - because 10 or 5 aren't boring enough. :D

There's only one story worth watching anyway.

The Space Pirates.

A work of unadulterated televisual genius.

I like the one with the Daleks and the iffy extra.
