Title: The First Doctor Story Tournament THE FINAL
Post by: thefifthdoctor on January 19, 2011, 09:48:30 am
Hi all,

Following on from the extremely successful quizzes in "The Greatest Show in the Galaxy" for NuWho,
I've been given the nod to have a bash at finding the best Classic story for each of the first 7 (sorry 8, you only got one televised shot - SADLY) Doctors.
My plan is to do a run for each Doctor in turn, and then a final round to determine what the best overall classic Doctor story is.
As the poor guy only had the TV movie, I'm giving him a bye to the final round.

I hope I do this ok, but if I stumble, I'm sure Ice can zip to my rescue!!

So, this round is for all of the adventures of The First Doctor, listed as per the BBC classic site.
I've ommitted "pilot" as it's An Unearthly Child, no point listing it twice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are the rules.

- Please put votes in BOLD so they are easier to count
- If you would like to change your vote, make a new post announcing your change. Do not edit your original post.
- Vote changes will not be allowed after Round 2.
- Iceman put this rule in effect because it will add another difficult dimension and that keeps people from flip flopping too much. So get all your vote changing out in the first 2 rounds.
- In the event of a tie, a 1 hour extension will be given and someone who has not voted already will vote. Only the first vote within that hour time period counts. If 2 or more people vote, all the votes but the first one will be null and void. If no one votes within the hour then I will flip a coin.

If you have questions please pm me with them. I hope you enjoy this tournament! The winners of each round will be included in this post with links to each daily match and the first match will be in the post below.

I am basing this wholy on the story outline and the fact I REALLY want to see it, though obviously I havent. I also like the other one though too :)


Title: Re: The First Doctor Story Tournament BATTLE TWO

I'm voting The Dalek Invasion of Earth - purely because that quote is an all time classic!
I feel bad for Marco Polo as it's supposed to be a belter and we'll never know (cheers BBC!)

(from wiki); Although no clips from this serial survive, a condensed 30-minute reconstruction was included on The Beginning, using production photographs, telesnaps and parts of the soundtrack (which survives and has been released on CD in its entirety).

Dalek Invasion of Earth - a story so good they made it into an equally brilliant film! Marco Polo is a brilliant story and the soundtrack promises something very special. But Dalek Invasion of Earth is my favourite Hartnell story :) Just that moment where the Dalek comes up out of the water - they don't get more iconic

In fact, you can get the full-length version of that reconstruction, which is absolutely brilliant.  Still, maybe just because it exists in full, The Dalek Invasion of Earth

This could possibly be a shut out.

One of the easiest - The Daleks.  The early part of The Sensorites is good enough to make it a classic, but I felt it tailed off a bit from about halfway through.

Battle 06

Planet of Giants Vs The Edge of Destruction

Planet of Giants
(http://images.wikia.com/tardis/images/e/e8/Planet_of_the_Giants.jpg)
"Do you know why I'm a success, Mr Farrow? Because I've never allowed the word "can't" to exist."

First Transmitted:

Planet of Giants - 31/10/1964 17:15
Dangerous Journey - 07/11/1964 17:15
Crisis - 14/11/1964 17:15

Plot

The main doors of the TARDIS open of their own accord just before it materialises, causing it to run out of control. On emerging, the travellers discover that the ship has been reduced in size and they are now only about an inch tall.

In this miniaturised state, they stumble across a plot by a ruthless businessman, Forester, and his misguided scientist colleague, Smithers, to launch a new insecticide named DN6 - a product so destructive that it would kill not only those insects harmful to agriculture but also those vital to it....

VS

The Edge of Destruction
(http://www.kasterborous.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/dw-s1-edge-wide3.jpg)
"Accuse us! You ought to go down on your knees and thank us! Gratitude's the last thing you'll ever have... or any sort of common sense either!"

First Transmitted:

The Edge of Destruction - 08/02/1964 17:15
The Brink of Disaster - 15/02/1964 17:15

Plot

As they slowly recover from the shock of being thrown to the TARDIS floor, the Doctor, Susan, Ian and Barbara all seem to be acting strangely. A number of unexplained events occur and suspicions are raised that some alien force may have entered the ship. The Doctor at one point even accuses Ian and Barbara of sabotage.

It gradually dawns on the travellers that what they have been experiencing is an attempt by the TARDIS itself to warn them of something. The Doctor ultimately realises that the 'fast return' switch he used when leaving Skaro has stuck, and the ship has been plunging back to the beginning of time and its own destruction....

You have approximately 24 hours to vote for either Planet of Giants or The Edge of Destruction

Edge of Destruction.  I do enjoy Planet of Giants, but it's perhaps a shade too effects-based, whereas Edge of Destruction was a brilliant character story.

Plot

The TARDIS arrives in London in 1966 and the Doctor and Dodo visit the Post Office Tower. There they meet Professor Brett, whose revolutionary new computer WOTAN (Will Operating Thought ANalogue) can actually think for itself and is shortly to be linked up to other major computers around the world - a project overseen by civil servant Sir Charles Summer.

It transpires however that WOTAN considers that humans are inferior to machines and should therefore be ruled by them. Exerting a hypnotic influence, it arranges the construction of War Machines - heavily-armed, self-contained mobile computers - with which to take over the world.

An Unearthly Child gets the series off to a great start, but goes downhill after episode 1. If it weren't for the fact that it's the very first story it would probably be regarded as one of the weaker stories of the First Doctor Era.
The Dalek Invasion Of Earth, on the other hand, is excellent all the way through, and seems to fly past each time I watch it far more quickly than a story of its length has any right to.

A number of unexplained events occur and suspicions are raised that some alien force may have entered the ship. The Doctor at one point even accuses Ian and Barbara of sabotage.

It gradually dawns on the travellers that what they have been experiencing is an attempt by the TARDIS itself to warn them of something. The Doctor ultimately realises that the 'fast return' switch he used when leaving Skaro has stuck, and the ship has been plunging back to the beginning of time and its own destruction....

4 - 18/06/1966 17:35

Plot

The TARDIS has arrived on a far-distant and seemingly idyllic world, but the Doctor, Steven and Dodo discover that it hides a terrible secret: the apparently civilised Elders maintain their advanced society by draining off and transferring to themselves the life-force of a group of defenceless Savages.

Plot

The TARDIS arrives in London in 1966 and the Doctor and Dodo visit the Post Office Tower. There they meet Professor Brett, whose revolutionary new computer WOTAN (Will Operating Thought ANalogue) can actually think for itself and is shortly to be linked up to other major computers around the world - a project overseen by civil servant Sir Charles Summer.

It transpires however that WOTAN considers that humans are inferior to machines and should therefore be ruled by them. Exerting a hypnotic influence, it arranges the construction of War Machines - heavily-armed, self-contained mobile computers - with which to take over the world.

Two of William Hartnell's finest stories. The Daleks wins by a very small margin.

The War Machines
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c5/War_Machines.jpg)
"I can feel it... it's got something... sort of powerful... it's... Look at my skin! Look at that! I've got that prickling sensation. The... sensation again... the same... just as I had when I fought the Daleks... those Daleks were near!"

Plot

The TARDIS arrives in London in 1966 and the Doctor and Dodo visit the Post Office Tower. There they meet Professor Brett, whose revolutionary new computer WOTAN (Will Operating Thought ANalogue) can actually think for itself and is shortly to be linked up to other major computers around the world - a project overseen by civil servant Sir Charles Summer.

It transpires however that WOTAN considers that humans are inferior to machines and should therefore be ruled by them. Exerting a hypnotic influence, it arranges the construction of War Machines - heavily-armed, self-contained mobile computers - with which to take over the world.
