Wondered if you could recommend any.

I tend to go for ones with classic monsters like Daleks and Cybermen other than that i'm a bit in the dark.
All the ones I've listened to have been good have to try to remember the ones that stood out, really enjoyed the Mcgann ones I listened to, made of really good doctor, same goes for Colin who is giving lot better storys than here.

Colin won a lot more fans thanks to Big Finish. Personally i liked him on screen though. He was a breath of fresh air in The Twin Dilemma but had mellowed by Attack of the Cybermen and by Trial of a Timelord he and Peri seemed like star crossed lovers.

It was a genuine thrill to see McGann back for the fiftieth even if it was only a minisode. Would love to see him given a season properly. It could be done easily. Jodie could say to Graham "A long time ago...." and there we go a -flash back series for McGann.

Did you ever hear The Chimes of Midnight?

A classic haunted house tale. McGann and India Fisher were excellent in it.

I also loved the story The Juggernauts. Davros and the Mechanoids. Classic stuff. Even Bonnie Langford was good in that.

Dull, depressing, boring.

Tim Shaw has the look of a great villain. But utilised terribly.

Yet again Graham was the only good thing about that Story.

So to recap we have had one pretty good Story this year, a few average/5 or 6 out of 10 ones and the rest being bad or terrible.


Almost every Doctor Who Season between 1-20 (not counting 21-26 until I get through them) is better than this. And every single Series post 2005 has been better than this.

I agree. This was easily the worst series of Doctor Who in it's 55 year history.

A pity because it was also one of the best looking ones from a cinematography point of view.

For me only The Woman Who Fell to Earth and The Witchfinders would make it into the top 200 stories. The majority of the series would be in the bottom ten which when you consider there are 286 in total is pretty poor.

Series 11 has been full of non-threatening villains/"monsters" and writing which has hurt Jodie's portrayal of the Doctor. She's a great actress who hasn't had a fair chance, she deserves better...

What we need is Jodie on her own squaring off with an old foe. Have confidence in her. Lets see her gravitas. Currently with the way things are Davros (played by any actor but especially Wisher) would dominate her.

She just talks and talks and talks but its all nonsense. Woman Who Feel to Earth gave a false start: when she made that leap across the crane or whatever it was I thought "yes, its an average Story to start with like Castrovalva (sorry guys) she seems to be getting involved in decent life-endangering action to save people". All ruined of course by the subsequent Stories with only It Takes You Away giving Jodie a decent opportunity to work.

But I have little faith in Chibnall. I am not taking the p$%$ here when I say that I and all of the regular contributors to this thread could probably write, say, a decent Dalek Story and make Jodie a better character. It may not be up there with Genesis but it'd certainly be better than practically anything from the last Series: and that's because we UNDERSTAND the character of the Doctor and how the show works.
