I won't have a bad word said about Invasion Of The Dinosaurs, unless it involves how bad the dinosaurs are. I think it 'just' works perfectly as a 6 parter. I think there are just enough strands in the story to keep it going.

I do like Frontier in Space, if just for the final 3 episodes with Delgado, I think he leaves with one of his best perfomances in that story. It's just a shame we didn't get a full story with him and the Daleks.

Plus it's much better than Planet Of The Daleks which is just Terry Nation doing the same script he always does.

In 2009 to celebrate the show 200th story Doctor Who Magazine did a huge fan poll where 6,700 fans were asked to rank all 200 episodes of Doctor Who. Here's how the results panned out.





141-150
Boom Town
The Trial of a Time Lord
New Earth
The Reign of Terror
The Highlanders
Battlefield
The Sun Makers
Mark of the Rani
The Leisure Hive
The Lazarus Experiment

151-160
The Celestial Toymaker
Evolution of the Daleks
Love and Monsters
The Ark
The Invasion of Time
The Wheel in Space
The Chase
The Edge of Destruction
The Smugglers
The Keys of Marinus

161-170
Attack of the Cybermen
The Savages
Planet of Giants
The Invisible Enemy
The Long Game
The Krotons
Nightmare of Eden
The Armageddon Factor
Terminus
The Happiness Patrol

How anyone can rate Boom Town as a better episode than The Long Game is beyond me. The only good bit in Boom Town is where Mickey falls over the cleaning trolley.

I always thought he would have been good playing The Master, if John Simm had said no.

I think Simon Pegg would make a good re-occuring UNIT Captain.
I prefer my actor playing the Master to be slightly older & have like a kind of Shakespearian/Classical acting background.

That would be awesome, but I'd like to see John Simm given another go first. They shouldn't have to change the Master just because it's a different Doctor.
