Doctor Who Fans Decide On Best Ten Stories Ever

Issue #413 of Doctor Who Magazine went on sale today and in it was the result of a fan vote to find the ten best Doctor Who stories of all time. And this time it doesn't seem to be a Tennant-fest like so many "best story" polls of recent times. Here's the list:

  1. The Caves of Androzani (1984 - Peter Davison)
  2. Blink (2007 - David Tennant)
  3. Genesis of the Daleks (1975 - Tom Baker)
  4. The Talons of Weng-Chiang (1977 - Tom Baker)
  5. The Empty Child (2005 - Christopher Eccleston)
  6. Human Nature (2007 - David Tennant)
  7. Pyramids of Mars (1975 - Tom Baker)
  8. City of Death (1979 - Tom Baker)
  9. The Robots of Death (1977 - Tom Baker)
  10. Bad Wolf (2005 - Christopher Eccleston)
The magazine is available with a choice of four covers, corresponding to stories in the list (Pictured). Just so you know, I'm going to get the Eccleston cover. The guy was a great Doctor.

But this got me thinking... I don't agree 100% with this list. In fact there are some amazing stories that have been omitted that should, in my opinion, be very high up! So, I came up with MY PERSONAL TOP TEN DOCTOR WHO STORIES OF ALL TIME!

  1. The Caves of Androzani (Peter Davison)
  2. The Invasion (Patrick Troughton)
  3. Blink (David Tennant)
  4. The Seeds Of Death (Patrick Troughton)
  5. The Sea Devils (Jon Pertwee)
  6. The Talons Of Weng-Chiang (Tom Baker)
  7. 42 (David Tennant)
  8. Earthshock (Peter Davison)
  9. Father's Day (Christopher Eccleston)
  10. Doctor Who (Paul McGann)
