Another vote for Creeping Death - it really does feel like a "lost episode" with its plot and supporting characters. To my ears, it sounded the most authentic to the era and (without spoiling anything) had more re-listen value than the other two.
Not that the others were bad by any means, but you had to pick one from this batch, I'd vote for Creeping Death.
(Death and the Queen is still my favorite 10DA by far, though!)
Seeing as everyone has chosen No Place or The Creeping Death, I want to put in a good word for One Mile Down. Jenny Colgan nailed the world building and crafted a new society in less than an hour. She absolutely gets the Doctor and Donna pairing too.

One Mile Down really is a classic series style “this is why Imperislism is always bad” story that the Pert One would have probably starred it, but done through the lens of 21st century hipsterism and cultural appropriation. The Doctor is the stereotypical “I went there before it was cool” Hipster, Donna the tourist-y tourist who just wants to see the sights but is ignorant of the changes made to make that possible and whatsherface is the one who wants to change everything to suit her and who cares about the locals.
I really wanted to like One Mile Down, but it just didn't click with me for some reason. The "get the helmets" idea had occurred to me within the first 10-15 minutes, so the rest of the time they were panicking was just getting a bit annoying - the answer was staring them in the face if I could see it!
I'd think most of us thought about the helmets really early in the episode. It was frustrating that it took so long for the characters.
I haven't listened to discs 4 and 5 yet. Overall, the stories were quite enjoyable, but didn't feel all that special. I need to take a good look at the deluxe book. It does look beautiful.
Listened to discs 4 and 5. I'm sure I had heard some of the interview material on 5 before, but I also think there were some that were new. Overall, the two discs were nice behind the scenes interviews. Lots of laughs between Catherine and David.
Is there any material in the "limited edition" download that is not on the CDs? Thanks.
