Title: Just for fun - The Worst Doctor Who story titles!
Post by: thefifthdoctor on May 28, 2011, 05:55:35 pm
So, Friday in work there was some extreme boredom going on.
This was the result;

Brought on by the title of tonight's episode - The Almost People - we started discussing the worst, or silliest titles in the entire run of Doctor Who (the TV movie doesn't really count, it's just too lame lol)

So, what do you all think? What clangers give you a giggle or  ::)?

We were supposed to do a top ten, but I ended up with 24!!!
(also, anyone ever noticed how many "The" titles Pertwee had? ;))

Let's here them then - doesn't have to be a bad story, just a bad (or funny) title!

Need inspiration? Ladies & Gents I give you exhibit A....

The Deadly Assassin...surely all assassins are deadly? Otherwise they'd just be a bit sh1t?  O0

;D

The Third Doctor had less 'The' titles than the first two Doctor's. It was always heavy on 'the's'

Not funny or anything, but I always thought Timelash was an awful title

OK, this isn't the worst but it's still stupid: The Mutants. There already was a story called The Mutants (although most of us call it The Daleks, nowadays, to avoid confusion) and they could really have thought of something more imaginative.

But, yes, Let's Kill Hitler is the worst name for one of the worst episodes. By the way, when I read thefifthdoctor's comment about "The Deadly Assassin", I just couldn't laughing, mainly because I couldn't believe I hadn't stopped and thought about that silly title.

Silly me! I completely forget about Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death. Just plain ridiculous.
