I love both, but I went with "Blink".

I would have to say it is a tie between "The Unquiet Dead" and "The Crimson Horror".  However, I voted for "The Crimson Horror".  "Robot of Sherwood" is a distant third and "NIght Terrors" takes the bottom spot.

"Smith and Jones" is my favorite season opener for Doctor Who.

Colin Baker's Doctor is one of my favorites.  I like how he was a change from Peter Davison, who is another favorite of mine.  I enjoyed his relationship with Peri, which started out rough but they eventually became close friends who still argue.

It wasn't one of the worst episodes.  It may not be one of my favorites, but I quite like "The Power of Three".

Sorry, but I think "Night Terrors" should have a lower score than "Closing Time".  "Night Terrors" is the worst episode of Series 6. I'm fine with the other scores.

I adore the Sixth Doctor and his relationship with Peri.  Colin Baker's Doctor is my third favorite Doctor.  I actually like some of his episodes that are considered the worst of Doctor Who.  Peri is actually among my favorite companions.  However, I can't stand Mel at all.

Characters already mentioned that I would have liked to see as companions: Jenny, Lynda Moss, Rita, Sally Sparrow, Duggan, Craig Owens, and Lady Christina de Souza.  

Others I would have liked as companions are Samantha Briggs ("The Faceless Ones"), Rachel "Ray" Defwydd ("Delta and the Bannermen"), Rodan ("The Invasion of Time"), Isobel Watkins ("The Invasion") and UNIT Pvt. Ross Jenkins ("The Sontaran Stratagem"/"The Poison Sky").

I disagree with you on "Partners in Crime" and "The Sontaran Stratagem"/"The Poison Sky".  I would have given them higher ratings.  I also disagree about the companions' families.  I like having their families on the show.  Their interactions with people other than the Doctor make them more interesting.  You learn more about a person that way, real or fictional.

I prefer "Utopia" over "Turn Left", but both are great episodes.  I only disagree with the twelfth episode and the RTD special.  I do like "The Pandorica Opens", but I think "Bad Wolf", "The Sound of Drums" and "The Stolen Earth" are superior to it.  As for "The Waters of Mars", I passionately hate that episode.  My favorite RTD specials are "The Christmas Invasion" and "The Runaway Bride".

The only one that I would really disagree with would be "Day of the Moon".  While I love both episodes in that two-parter, I feel "The Fires of Pompeii" makes a better second episode.

"The Christmas Invasion" takes my vote.  It was David Tennant's first full appearance as the Tenth Doctor.  It has Rose, Mickey, Jackie and Harriet Jones.  It is one of my favorite Doctor Who Christmas specials.  Next up would be "The Runaway Bride, because it has Donna.

I think I'm going to choose "Last of the Time Lords" partly because we found out that Jack is the Face of Boe and Martha's exit.  Martha left on her own terms, wanting to be with her family after a year of hell.  She got out because her feelings weren't being reciprocated and she needed to move on.  But she wasn't going to let the Doctor just disappear from her life completely.  I also love that she left before something terrible happened to her (Rose getting stuck in the parallel universe in "Doomsday" and Donna losing her memory of the Doctor in "Journey's End").  My next three choices would be "Journey's End", "The Name of the Doctor", and "The Parting of the Ways" in that order.

It's so hard to choose between "The Sound of Drums" and "The Stolen Earth", as both Series 3 an 4 had epic finales.  My favorite Doctor and two of my favorite companions (Martha and Jack) are in both.  But "The Stolen Earth" also has Sarah Jane, Donna, Rose, Mickey, Jackie & Torchwood.  Ultimately, I'm going with "The Sound of Drums" because the Mr. Saxon is the Master revelation, John Simm's portrayal of the Master, and Martha's family.

"Utopia"!  I love the last three episodes of Series 3 so much.  "Turn Left" would be my second choice, followed by "The Crimson Horror" and "Boom Town".

"Blink", obviously!  


In order of best to worst: "Blink", "The Doctor Dances", "Vincent and the Doctor", "Midnight", "Journey to the Center of the TARDIS", "The Girl Who Waited", and lastly, "Love and Monsters".

"School Reunion", "The Unquiet Dead" and "Gridlock" are all equally amazing episodes.  But I have to go with "School Reunion" because it has the return of Sarah Jane Smith and K-9, Rose learning that she is not the first to travel with the Doctor, and Mickey officially becoming a companion.

"The Fires of Pompeii", "The End of the World", and "The Beast Below".  I love "Day of the Moon", but I can't accurately judge a multipart story separately and against standalone episodes.  I voted for "The Fires of Pompeii".  Although I like "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship", I feel that it would be at the bottom in comparison with the others.

I had the chance to listen to three of the Eighth Doctor audios.  I loved Lucie and Tamsin.  To the Death was just heartbreakingly good.  I hope to listen to an audio with Erimem soon.

Series 3, followed closely by Series 4, is my favorite season of New Who.  It has so many good episodes, particularly the three-part finale.  Two of my favorite companions (Martha and Jack) are in Series 3.  The Master is my favorite villain.

@Liana21  I said "set in the US", not "filmed in the US".  The setting of the story is Mercy, Nevada, USA in 1870.  Yes, it is true that it was filmed in Spain.

I haven't used my Wii in ages, but if there were a Lego Doctor Who game for Wii, I would definitely buy and play it.  I agree that it should span the different eras and have a variety of Doctors, companions, and villains to choose from.
