    Default Ultimate Doctor Who: Season 25

    After a between seasons rethink, the series takes a darker approach to the Doctor, who becomes more of the manipulator, more secretive and somewhat more melancholy than in season 24. With Ace at his side, he takes on the Daleks, the Cybermen, causes the downfall of Helen A on Terra Alpha and sees of the God of RRRRRRRRRangnarrrrrrrok too!

    But which one ios your favourite?

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    Even though I'm not particularly fond of it, Remembrance is streets ahead of the rest of the season.

    Remembrance by a mile. My favourite story of the 80's!

    Remembrance blew me away when I first saw it, and I still think it's great today.

    Remembrance probably deserves the vote.... but it doesn't need it, so I'm going for another favourite - The Happiness Patrol. I remember at the end of Remembrance in 1988 thinking to myself, "Will Doctor Who ever be as good again?" - and then being very relieved the following week to find that the answer was "yes"!!

    Remembrance, but it's so close with Happiness Patrol and Greatest Show. Even Silver Nemesis is buckets of fun.

    Oooh, coconut macaroons!

    It's been a while since I saw it but it has to be The Happiness Patrol: a world where being sad is a crime and featuring an evil Bertie Bassett.

    In my opinion, there wasn't a duff story in the run from Dragonfire onwards! Remembrance is an obvious classic, but this season marked a turning point for the show, a real re-discovery of confidence and focus on story-telling. But Remembrance wins for re-inventing the Daleks in a way that's carried through to the 21st Century.

    Now if it was up to me, I would re-invent the Daleks again to make them less of an all-conquering, invulnerable foe that needs to be defeated with a magic switch. I'd go right back to the first story and make them more vulnerable and more interesting.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Remembrance, though Greatest Show's good as well.
