Ranking the Troughton stories in order...


1) The War Games - Climaxing on one of the most thrilling, more epic stories ever


2) Power of the Daleks - Kick starting on a peerless note


3) The Mind Robber - Surreal, literate, funny, terrifying and constantly surprising

To be reviewed...

4) Evil of the Daleks - Implausible but one classic scene after another

To be reviewed...

5) The Invasion - Season six gets some stick but there are three absolute classics


6) The Enemy of the World - I loved this BEFORE it was discovered


7) Fury from the Deep - Genuinely disturbing and some excellent characterisation

To be reviewed...

8) The Web of Fear - Haunting and exciting, if overlong


9) Tomb of the Cybermen - Stylish and foreboding and occasionally quite ropey


10) The Ice Warriors - A fantastic character tale

To be reviewed...

11) The Macra Terror - Really different and it stands out because of it


12) The Seeds of Death - Brilliant entertainment, I love the score and Troughton excels


13) The Abominable Snowmen - Unusual and disquieting, there's nothing else quite like this

To be reviewed...

14) The Highlanders - Comical and dramatic but not a patch on the historicals of the past

To be reviewed...

15) The Underwater Menace - Rubbish, but strangely hypnotic and engaging


16) The Faceless Ones - Far too long but it feels fresh and contemporary


17) The Krotons - Mercifully short but compact and rather lovely for it


18) The Moonbase - Formulaic, but with a lot of style


19) The Wheel in Space - Pretty dull with only the regulars enlivening things


20) The Space Pirates - Occasionally fun but mostly flat and uninteresting

To be reviewed...

21) The Dominators - I find it hard to commend this, it's so dreadfully dull

If only The power of the Daleks was found...
