Let's see... This could get very unwieldy, very quickly, so if you twisted my arm and said name just five:
The Wormery - Asexuality doesn't get a lot of coverage in media, so it's nice to have something that explores the Doctor's sense of love, not only as something genuine, but actually quietly wonderful. He can't ever love Iris the way she wants him to, but that doesn't stop him caring for her. It's one of those "hitching post" stories for Sixie's character development. From the soft smoke of Bianca's, we learn something entirely new about him and then it's time to move on.
Just love how you explain this. I totally agree.
Thanks. You could say that I'm someone with a vested interest in that kind of representation, so something like The Wormery is... nice. It's nice to have.
"Courage isn't a matter of not being frightened you know; It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway."
Still an impressive range - possibly not as creative and inventive as the 'first' 50. I do wonder how much of the risks and creative approaches that were taken between 1999-2003 had to be reined in (or were stolen) by the BBC Production Team.
McCoy finally seems to get the adventures that we were waiting for. The introduction of Hex is a real gem here and The Harvest is a great introduction to his character. Again, the more character-driven companion stories in this period mirror the approach taken with the BBC TV Series.
Davison begins his venture into comedy - The Kingmaker is a particular favourite!!
Sadly, Evelyn's run with the Sixth Doctor begins to end - pity...
'Well now I know you're mad. I just wanted to make sure."
Night Thoughts seems to be winning the day. I mean I thought it was good, but didn’t think it was quite this universally praised.
I think this is because people are being allowed to vote for as many as they want, so stories that everyone liked a fair bit - even if they weren't the real top of the tree - are being inflated because they're universally quite liked even if rarely totally adored. That's why I stuck to five for each. I think if everyone did some of the abberations might be different, or lessened.
