Kingdom Of Lies - Ghost Walk is currently thrashing it but continuing my run of liking the lesser trilogy stories, I prefer this one. Lovely satire, and the best Nyssa has been...ever.
Muse Of Fire - It's days old - we all know why this is great.
Quicksilver - I remember loving this to pieces...and I can't remember why. Still, I do tend to know myself and I must have been right!
The Middle - where's the love guys? Chris Chapman is one of the best BF writers going and this was a total belter from him.
Peterloo Massacre - Best serious historical in ages. A neglected part of history (even the recent Mike Leigh film came and went) but this story tells the events of the horrible event and tells a deeply personal one with it.
And then I've cheated and picked the 4 still to come. Why? Well, I live in hope the best days are still ahead!
I genuinely think this is one of the best periods for the MR and since 2015, BF have really had a great series of adventures. Baker and Davison are on top form - Davison just edging out Baker in places. Baker's travels with Flip and Connie are fantastic and, hopefully, we will see more adventures with this TARDIS crew later this year. Perhaps ironically, as the TV show has struggled a bit, BF seems to have got its mojo back for telling stories - there is less sequel-its with these and the stories are much better driven and scripted.
McCoy has been inconsistent with his stories. The return of older Mel didn't work for me and, apart from Red Planets, his trilogies have been really lacklustre and underwhelming. Hopefully, Muse of Fire marks the beginning of a new approach.
Again, Davison is great with the comedy angle - Time in Office and Kingdom of Lies are two personal favourites.
