Doctor Who

Doctor Who reviews and thoughts

Anyone who knows me or has given the slightest of glances at my blog or social media feeds will know that Doctor Who forms a somewhat major part of my life. I’ve been a fan since the early 90s when my mum showed me the repeat of the Sea Devils on BBC 2. Instantly hooked, I proceeded to watch ever VHS my local library possessed. By the time of the 30th Anniversary, I was well versed enough in Doctor Who lore to be both delighted and mildly affronted by Dimensions in Time.

With no particular logical order, I have been watching and generally reviewing stories both new and old and have decided to attempt some form of ranking. I’ve never done this before and it may be a failed project, but I’m going to try regardless. My one rule is that I’m not going to place anything on the rankings before I’ve rewatched it. So it’s going to be a while. I’m also fairly likely to include Big Finish audios on this list. They had been my primary source of Doctor Who for long enough by the time the show was put back on air that I consider them as integral a part of the show as anything on TV.
