I've already saved (i.e. by removing them from the list) Brain of Morbius and Genesis of the Daleks earlier in the thread.

So that would make it ...

Robot
The Sontaran Experiment
Revenge of the Cybermen
The Seeds of Doom
The Masque of Mandragora
The Hand of Fear
The Face of Evil
The Robots of Death
The Invisible Enemy
Image of the Fendahl
The Sun Makers
Underworld
The Ribos Operation
The Pirate Planet
The Stones of Blood
The Power of Kroll
The Armageddon Factor
Destiny of the Daleks
The Creature from the Pit
Nightmare of Eden
The Horns of Nimon
The Leisure Hive
Meglos
Full Circle
State of Decay
Warriors' Gate
The Keeper of Traken
Logopolis

...are there any others on THIS list that have already been 'saved' and so should be removed, anyone?

dear graceful -

i am getting confused again. :? logopolis was saved earlier. and i deleted from my list the two you saved.

dear jaybee -

i thought i just cut and pasted your list. :oops: which has worked just fine before, in this lil' diversion.

what to do ... what to do. :shock:

OK. pattie anne has made a decision. ah, two actually. ah, actually one is a request.

1) let us go with the graceful leonard's list as he seems to know what is going on ...

2) i am 'outta this here' before i throw another spanner into the works of this little game. and i most sincerly apologize to anyone and everyone for messing this up so horribly. :(

good luck to all. :mrgreen:

This seems to have died.

Can we just all agree that Warrior's Gate was the worst?

How about this-no story of Tom's tenure was the worst. They were all good and had something to offer viewers. :D

I think we can say that even Tom's worst was better than any of the ones that followed, minus a couple of Colin Baker's.

I'd have to agree with that sentiment, more or less. His tenruee was the mid-away point for the classic series, and his stories always seemed to feature some rather original ideas behind them, and interesting characters to boot. His weakest story-which is being determined by this topic-was miles more interesting than much of the 80s serials that followed. The question is-does Tom's stories stand up to modern-day Who with their flashier Doctors etc? I say a resounding YES! :lol:
