How ridiculous to claim one character out of 60-odd "ruins a show".

Personally, I'm loving Todd's return. I think it's inspired.

I totally disagree about Todd. Todd is no stereotype; in fact, he's quite a fascinating one-off. People say he's changed, but he hasn't really. He was always selfish when he wanted to be - after all,...

A lot of the audience for Inspector Morse watched because they fancied Morse. He was played by an ageing, white-haired actor with a slight limp.

And Sean Connery was voted "sexiest man alive" in his...

A decent start to the Fifth Doctor's era and, like the OP, I find much to enjoy in this season (if we pretend TimeFlight never existed, of course). I must admit, I should have liked the Doctor to...

The only way the Seventh Doctor's era could be improved would be if someone managed to get hold of a TARDIS, go back to the 80s and somehow make sure the whole sorry mess never happened.

No contest - Roger Delgado for me. He was the dark side of the Doctor; the evil alter ego. I must admit I liked Anthony Ainley, even if he was always just one thigh-slap away from a panto villain.

It was. To this long time fan (since the Troughton era), the McCoy era was an utter travesty. I know the aim of Doctor Who is to have people watching the show through their fingers - but surely not...

Scrap the costume. Get a new producer and script editor. Keep the violence and the slightly more adult feel, but make it stylised, not simply nasty. Play to Colin Baker's considerable strengths as an...

As a bloke, I happily blub at movies. The end of The Sound of Music gets me every time. My mate reckons it's because I'm gay (he's not), but I've seen him dab a manly tear away when he thinks I'm not...

It's absolutely incredible. I saw it last week on Netflix and can't get it out of my head. I can't recall when I last saw a documentary that moved me - and enraged me - so much.

Easily Three to Four for me. It was understated - "A tear, Sarah Jane...?" - emotionally satisfying, and came out of the drama.

Four to Five would have equalled it for me if there hadn't been so...
