This story was voted the worst story of the 2005 run of the show (though this was before series 5-7 aired). Do you think it actually is?

I have to say, I think I do. Or at least joint worst with others like the Slitheen two parter and Daleks in Manhattan

Wash your mouth out!!  Angry

I think it probably is. I understand it was rushed but that's really no excuse. This story is awful.

I don't think it is. Off the top of my head I think Curse of the Black Spot, Aliens of London, The Lazarus Experiment, The Idiots Lantern, Vampires of Venice, Tooth and Claw and Night Terrors are all worse.

I think it would be hard to define the absolute worst. Just as things are good for different reasons, things are also bad for different reasons. I think I would probably give the honour to The Lazarus Experiment because while both are bad, that one is pretty much unwatchable.

I don't think this one is the worst. I have rewatched it a few times, and it's bearable. The first time I watched it I actually sort of liked it.

The ones with the Slitheen are bad, I really don't like Love and Monsters (though the beginning is promising, it just doesn't pan out), Curse of the Black Spot, The Girl Who Waited, The Lazarus experiment...I don't care for any of those, but I can't choose a "worst" either.

Have to agree with you there, Love and Monsters was so bad and the Doctor appeared in it for what...5 minutes?

you didn't like The Girl Who Waited? Shocked

I thought that episode was amazing. It wouldn't be within a hundred miles of the worst episodes for me.

Nope, I really didn't care for it. I'm not much of an Amy fan to begin with, so that probably has something to do with it. Amy's my least favorite companion out of the new series so far :/

Again- going against everyone I definitely don't think it as the worst. What about things like Love and Monsters? And despite loving the Weeping Angels I honestly think Blink is far worse than this

I won't win any popularity contests by admitting this, but I think I'd rather watch Fear Her than Let's Kill Hitler or The Wedding of River Song.  While there are parts of those stories I like a lot (and the production values are stunning), they are episode I can honestly say I dislike.  I'll even take The Curse of the Black Spot over those--and that's saying something.

All time worst Who?  No, not Fear Her.  Not when you consider some of the...er...less than stellar offerings from the Classic Era.   Wink
