Human Nature should have been higher than Blink. As should the series 4 finale. And Turn Left. Midnight should have come a lot higher than 43 too

There are quite a few stories towards the top of that list that should be lower down and a few lower down that should be higher up. Was this voted by the fans or just compiled by the magazine based on their own opinions?

I didn't see TEOT, seems like it should have been in there.  I also thought that TSE and JE should have been higher.

I alwayys get confused with abbreviations, but if you mean The End Of Time it isn't in there because the list was printed in the October 09 issue so it hadn't been broadcast yet.

By the fans. Readers of the magazine were asked to give each story they had seen a mark out of 10. They then took the average score for every story (which they then turned into a percentage for some reason) and ranked the stories accordingly.





Anyway, there are a lot of stories that I think are miles away from where they should be, and a lot I think are more-or-less right. Anyone else noticed that the three highest-ranked stories from the black-and-white era are all stories that are mostly or completely missing?

Oh right. Seems like a random way of doing things but I suppose it was the fairest way. I still dont agree with many placings though :P

Oh, Ok! I thought it was a newer edition of the Mag.  Then I withdraw my comment...

Challenge accepted. Though I can only base that off of the new Series. I'll post that tomorrow after my exam ;D

I could never do it. Though there are a few that I am not too keen on, I could never choose favourites out of the ones I love
