I think it is too late to do that, Wonkakid. But I do have some questions.

So this game is over, then? Warrior's Gate wins as the 'worst' Tom Baker story? Should the topic be locked now? How does that work?

I know. Merely wishful thinking/posting on my part ;-).

Warriors Gate??? Nooooooooo!!!!

Mind you can't say I'm surprised - I've watched it nearly a dozen times and I still don't get it!

Happy Days! ;)
The Doctor: I tell you, Brigadier, there's nothing to worry about! The brontosarus is large and placid!
Harry Sullivan: (to the Brigadier) This the patient, sir?
The Doctor: (looking up at Harry) And stupid!

I am suprised as well. I would have thought Power of Kroll or Nightmare of Eden would have rated the least liked. They certainly are my least liked. :lol:

With no fault to Tom, these weren't really his worst stories. The
fault, IMO, goes to the writers. I'd never seen Tom give a bad
performance.

Horror of fang rock, The Ribos Operation, The Sunmakers
and The planet of evil were no masterpieces by any stretch.
I place the blame on the writers. Tom did his job.

Nah nah The Sunmakers is a good story! It captures some of Tom's finest humor and the supporting characters were just as memorable.

I'll have to check it out again. Saw it a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't
have it here on DVD, or on video cassette.

I do recall the villain having a funny, high voice.

There wahe Gatherer who was a puppet ruler, the real power came from the little bald-headed alien Collector.
The Doctor had some hilarious scenes with the both of them. Like when the Gatherer tried to make sense of the Doctor's title by saying "Citazen Doctor...Citazen Doctor...unusual name ...." and the Doctor laughing and saying "Especially for an ajack" and the Gatherer replied "Indeed....." :lol:

Just did an extensive search and found that I do have the Sunmakers story here, on
video cassette. I'm going to have to give it a watch, and check out the scene you're
alluding to. Sounds funny!
