Worst Tom Baker story?

Postby VilaRestal on September 9th, 2010, 2:37 am

Here's how it works. Below is a list of every single Tom Baker story. In order to find the worst, we must remove the best. What you do is copy and paste the latest version of the list into a new reply and remove/backspace your favorite story from the remaining ones. With everyone grabbing their favorites, the worst one will be left over. The rules are:

You can only remove one at a time. You cannot do this twice in a row. If you want to 'save' another, you must wait until someone else has edited the list again, then you can. I hope I've made myself clear.

I haven't seen all the later ones, but my least favourite is probably The Invasion of Time. I also felt quite cross with Tom for his 'even the sonic screwdriver...' line direct to camera on that one. I think the director should have cut that.

For me, there definately isn't a worst story. I have favorites, but I can't choose a worst one. I guess I'm like Russell T Davies in the fact that I see greatness in all of TOM's 178 episodes and all of Doctor Who's 769 episodes overall thus far. Even the ones that fans voted second last and last in the recent Doctor Who Magazine 2010 poll like 'Time And The Rani'(Sylvester McCoy) and 'The Twin Dilemma'(Colin Baker) I still enjoyed. TOM's episodes from Robot to Logopolis and now Hornet's Nest and Demon Quest(soon I will have a listen! :) I have no doubts it will be a classic! ) have all been like a rollercoaster ride for me. They have been such FUN! Even in my least favorite stories, TOM managed to make them still enjoyable with his riveting performance. So I definately have favorites and least favorites, but none of them were bad. I LOVE every episode of TOM's. Trying to choose which one is the worst or which one is the best is like trying to choose between my left leg over my right or my right arm over my left. You need them all. They are all important, and there's not a worst one. It's all in the EYE's and EAR's of the beholder.

Yes, least favourite is a much better way of putting it.
