An interesting point about Black Orchid - it's the only story after The Highlanders in 1967 to have no SF content apart from the actual time travel.

Why dont they just release new stories

Stories it's criminal they haven't released yet include Terror of the Autons, The Mind of Evil, The Daemons, Planet of the Spiders, Terror of the Zygons and The Sun Makers.

All great stories, all ones I've got already  Sad

I think this had one the best first episodes ever.  It fell away a little after that, but there were some great moments.  I loved Vicki bullying the boys into starting their revolution, instead of just talking about it.

I like The Web Planet.  I know it looks a bit tacky by modern standards, but I remember watching it as a ten-year-old and being really impressed by the Zarbi.  Though I can't defend the Optera  Undecided

I've got this one on video, but the DVD will definitely go on my list.  One of the classics of the Hinchcliffe/Holmes era.

They could have got Jackie Lane on the audio commentary surely. I dont remember her being on anything related to the Classics actually. I know the only other of her stories is The War Machines, but these things usually overlap. Perhaps the relationship between her and Doctor Who is still a bit sour

The Gunfighters still exists, but I think everyone's trying hard to forget that  Huh?

The Ark's a great concept, execution OK, I'd say.

The Keys of Marinus. Really wasnt fussed on first watch, but I gave it another go whilst introducing a friend to it and I really enjoyed it a whole lot more.

The War Machines is another one that gets better the more you watch

The Keys of Marinus is one I always remembered as a classic, and I loved it when I saw it again.  My only criticism is that I'd like to have seen more of some of the settings - it should have been a twelve-parter  Cheesy

In general, I remember not being impressed with the stories with Romana #2 first time around, so I was delighted when I got the DVD of City of Death - a real classic, both for the story and for the brilliant Adams one-liners.

It doesn't look as if there are any Doctor Whos in there - I think it would have mentioned if there were.  Pity.  O/T though, I do remember one of the Romeo & Juliets mentioned, and it was a superb production.

In answer to the original question - yes, the ideal answer would be all of them, but my first choice would be The Daleks' Masterplan, but Marco Polo, Evil of the Daleks and both Yeti stories would come high on my list.

Hi, and thanks for the welcomes.

Hi everyone.  I've been a fan of the good Doctor since precisely 23rd November 1963 - I still remember watching An Unearthly Child as a young kid, and I was lost from that moment.  I lost track a bit during the 80s (though I've caught up with that since) and I've seen every story at one time or another.  I like the first four Doctors the best, but every period, classic and new, has had its gems.  May it never end.
5332  Travels In Time And Space / The Invasion Of Time / Re: What is your favourite classic story? on: October 21, 2010, 01:44:48 am
Based on dim and distant memory (and not spoilt at all by watching the reconstruction) I'd go for The Daleks' Masterplan.  A brilliant story, and lots of death and mayhem.  Of the surviving stories, it's hard to pick just one, but the Talons of Weng Chiang is hard to beat.  And The Daleks.
5333  Travels In Time And Space / The Invasion Of Time / Re: What was your first Who? on: October 21, 2010, 01:38:37 am
For me - An Unearthly Child (yes, I really am that old  Cheesy)  They repeated the episode the following Saturday, because so many people had missed it, and followed it straight on with the second one, but I was hooked from the first showing.  I can't actually claim to have watched every single episode, but I saw most of every story up till about 1980, when I lost track a bit, mainly due to practical difficulties (including not having a TV for a while).  I've caught up with that period now, though.
