Title: The Second Doctor Story Tournament - THE WINNER
Post by: thefifthdoctor on March 27, 2011, 07:43:42 pm
Ladies & Gents, Timelords & Companions, Villains & Monsters.....I proudly present to you the third in our Classic Adventures story tournaments.

TFD Mod note - I got a new pc yesterday, so this should run a lot smoother than before!


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

Plot

The TARDIS arrives on a planet where a race known only as the Aliens have gathered soldiers from a number of different wars in Earth's history, brainwashed them and put them to battle. Their aim is to form an invincible army from the survivors and use this to take over the galaxy.

The War Lord is assisted by a Security Chief and a War Chief, the latter of whom the Doctor quickly recognises as a member of his own race, the Time Lords. The War Chief has provided the Aliens with the time vessels, SIDRATs, that are essential to their scheme; but he secretly plans to double-cross them and seize power for himself.....

Its not often I can say I dislike Doctor Who stories but the Dominators was as boring as a horses ass (I guess one story out of 47 years is not bad going). On the other hand I absolutely love the other choice (any story with Harry Towb in gets my vote) so its got to be The Seeds of Death (incidentally one of my very first VHS purchases)

Plot

The TARDIS arrives on Earth at the time of a new ice age and the travellers make their way into a base where scientists commanded by Leader Clent are using an ioniser device to combat the advance of a glacier.
A giant humanoid creature, termed an Ice Warrior by one of the scientists, has been found buried in the glacier nearby. When thawed, it revives and is revealed to be Varga, captain of a Martian spacecraft that landed on Earth centuries ago and is still in the glacier. Varga sets about freeing his comrades and formulating a plan to conquer the Earth...

The TARDIS arrives on a planet where a race known only as the Aliens have gathered soldiers from a number of different wars in Earth's history, brainwashed them and put them to battle. Their aim is to form an invincible army from the survivors and use this to take over the galaxy.

The War Lord is assisted by a Security Chief and a War Chief, the latter of whom the Doctor quickly recognises as a member of his own race, the Time Lords. The War Chief has provided the Aliens with the time vessels, SIDRATs, that are essential to their scheme; but he secretly plans to double-cross them and seize power for himself.....

To escape from the volcanic eruption on Dulkis, the Doctor uses an emergency unit which moves the TARDIS out of normal time and space. The travellers find themselves in an endless void, where they are menaced by White Robots.
Having regained the safety of the TARDIS, they believe they have escaped - until the ship suddenly explodes apart. They then find themselves in a land of fiction, where they are hunted by life-size clockwork soldiers and encounter characters like Rapunzel and Swift's Lemuel Gulliver.

Plot

The TARDIS arrives on a planet where a race known only as the Aliens have gathered soldiers from a number of different wars in Earth's history, brainwashed them and put them to battle. Their aim is to form an invincible army from the survivors and use this to take over the galaxy.

The War Lord is assisted by a Security Chief and a War Chief, the latter of whom the Doctor quickly recognises as a member of his own race, the Time Lords. The War Chief has provided the Aliens with the time vessels, SIDRATs, that are essential to their scheme; but he secretly plans to double-cross them and seize power for himself.....

"Anyone would think that it's a little game, and it's not. People have died. The Daleks are all over, fit to murder the lot of us, and all you can say is that you've had a good night's work. Well, I'm telling you this, we're finished. You're just too callous for me. Anything goes by the board, anything at all. You don't give that much for a living soul except yourself. Just whose side are you on?"

Despite my devotion to the Daleks, Tomb Of The Cybermen is the better story (though Daleks kick their arse!) :P

The War Games. I love Tomb, but think it's a tiny bit overrated.

The War Games, though I'd be happy enough with any of them winning.

So sad I couldn't get on to cast my vote but... One of my all time favourite stories and Patrick Troughton is simply amazing. I always thought this story would actually transport pretty well into Nu-Who. A worthy winner :)
