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

Sorry for the delay kicking off, everyone!
Here we go with the Fourth Doctor story tournament!!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Round 1
Battle 01

Logopolis Vs Warrior's Gate

Logopolis

"It's the end... but the moment has been prepared for."

First Transmitted:

1 - 28/02/1981 17:10
2 - 07/03/1981 17:10
3 - 14/03/1981 17:10
4 - 21/03/1981 17:10

Plot

The Doctor takes Adric and a young air hostess named Tegan Jovanka, who has come aboard the TARDIS by accident, to the planet Logopolis, home of a race of mathematicians whose help he hopes to enlist in reconfiguring the outer shell of the TARDIS.
The mysterious, wraith-like Watcher brings Nyssa from Traken to join them and warns of impending danger - something that is borne out as the Master arrives and kills a number of the Logopolitans

VS

Warrior's Gate

"You're a machine, aren't you? I usually get on so well with machines."

First Transmitted

1 - 03/01/1981 17:20
2 - 10/01/1981 17:10
3 - 17/01/1981 17:10
4 - 24/01/1981 17:10

Plot

The TARDIS is hijacked in the vortex by a time sensitive Tharil named Biroc, and brought to a strange white void. Biroc wants to free the others of his race who are being transported in a slave ship, captained by Rorvik, which is also trapped in the void. The only other thing present in the void is an ancient gateway leading to a decrepit banqueting hall.
This is the domain of the Tharils, who in a previous time were cruel masters to their human slaves but have now repented. The humans built the Gundan robots to kill the Tharils, and this led to the latter race's downfall.

You have approximately 24 hours to vote for either Logopolis or Warrior's Gate

Late-4th Doctor isn't one of my favourite eras, but Logopolis was among the stand-outs

Logopolis takes no prisoners, moving ahead 6-nil.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Round 1
Battle 02

Meglos Vs Shada

Meglos

"Some fifty years ago I knew a man who solved the insoluble by the strangest means. He sees the threads that join the universe together and mends them when they break."

First Transmitted:

1 - 27/09/1980 18:15
2 - 04/10/1980 18:15
3 - 11/10/1980 17:40
4 - 18/10/1980 17:45

Plot

The Doctor is invited to visit the planet Tigella by its leader, Zastor, who has become concerned about disputes between his people's two opposing factions, the religious Deons and the scientist Savants.
The TARDIS is intercepted by the megalomaniacal xerophyte Meglos, last survivor of the planet Zolfa-Thura, and trapped in a chronic hysteresis - a time loop - but the Doctor and Romana manage to free it.

VS

Shada

"When I was on the river I heard the strange babble of inhuman voices, didn't you, Romana?"

Plot

The story revolves around the lost planet Shada, on which the Time Lords built a prison for defeated would-be conquerors of the universe. Skagra, an up-and-coming would-be conqueror of the universe, needs the assistance of one of the prison's inmates, but finds that nobody knows where Shada is anymore except one aged Time Lord who has retired to Earth, where he is masquerading as a professor at St. Cedd's College, Cambridge. Luckily for the fate of the universe, Skagra's attempt to force the information out of Professor Chronotis coincides with a visit by the professor's old friend, the Doctor.

You have approximately 24 hours to vote for either Meglos or Shada

Mod Note: I know Shada is the infamous unaired story, but I'm including it for completion's sake. I think the 1992 narrated version may be hiding on youtbue though

Shada a brilliant story and I wish it had been completed properly! My experience of it is as a VHS release with Tom Baker's linking narration.

Meglos had a plant as a baddie. Not a cool plant baddie like the Triffids or the Vervoids. Just a rather irate cactus.

Shada outclasses the cactus 6-2


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Round 1
Battle 03

The Leisure Hive Vs Nightmare of Eden

The Leisure Hive

Pangol: How did you get out?"
The Doctor : "Through a hole in the back."
Pangol : "But there isn't one."
The Doctor : "There is now."


First Transmitted:

1 - 30/08/1980 18:15
2 - 06/09/1980 18:20
3 - 13/09/1980 17:55
4 - 20/09/1980 18:15

Plot

The Doctor and Romana visit the Leisure Hive on the planet Argolis, the surface of which is uninhabitable following a twenty minute nuclear war between the Argolins and their enemies the Foamasi. The Argolins themselves are now sterile. Pangol, the youngest, was created by the Tachyon Recreation Generator, a machine that runs games in the Hive.

VS

Nightmare of Eden

The Doctor : "Interfere! Of course we should interfere. Always do what you're best at, that's what I say."

Plot

The TARDIS lands at the site of a hyperspatial collision between two spacecraft - as a result of which, neither ship is dimensionally stable, risking the lives of all those aboard. The Doctor, K-9 and Romana offer to help out. When a crewmember is found dead, his face lacerated by huge claws, it seems something deadly has been released by the accident. But how is the death linked to the discovery that the killer drug Vraxoin has been smuggled aboard? The answer could be the savage Mandrels, hideous swamp-creatures from the planet Eden, which soon tear through the corridors of the helpless spaceships...

The Leisure Hive - though Nightmare of Eden is in a different league from the stories on either side of it.
