I've only included NuWho stories in my poll because if I went all the way back I would end up missing things out and that wouldn't be fair. Also, a lot of posters won't have seen them anyway, so for now it's only 2005-present.

Doctor Who has aired many stories which have featured various aspects of the occult, which one of the NuWho stories above did it best? Vote above and post below!

If I have missed any stories off, please point it out and maybe a mod would be kind enough to add them in Smiley

My vote was torn between The Unquiet Dead and The God Complex, but in the end I went with the latter. I think it is just slightly stronger.

I wish I had added some classics in now because the list isn't particularly strong, but with things like Fenric or Daemons or Mandragora in there then it would have been a lot more varied, I think.

Overall, The Daemons would have had my vote.  Of the NuWho choices, The Unquiet Dead and The God Complex are both very strong, but I went with The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit.

I actually like most of those stories, but The Unquiet Dead is where my vote went.

The God Complex. You should have gone with the classic options too, though. You could have had loads.

The Daemons
Pyramids of Mars
The Brain of Morbius
The Masque of Mandragora
Image of the Fendahl
The Stones of Blood
State of Decay
The Curse of Fenric

They are the only ones I could think of, but there may be others.

Arguably also Planet of the Spiders and The Greatest Show in the Galaxy (werewolf).  Perhaps The Awakening.

I've gone with The Unquiet Dead, but a couple were strong contenders.

Yeah I should have put them in, really. Oh well. Maybe next time Smiley

Spoilt for choice with that classic selection. Of the ones in the poll thought I'm going for Hide. I was torn between most of them but that's the one I feel like I most want to watch again.
