My own definitive top ten is:

10 - The Talons Of Weng-Chiang
09 - Planet Of The Ood
08 - The Tomb Of The Cybermen
07 - The Doctor's Wife
06 - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth
05 - Earthshock
04 - The Daleks
03 - Human Nature/The Family Of Blood
02 - The Caves Of Androzani

and my own personal number one

01 - Genesis Of The Daleks



Absolutely brilliant all of these stories. And to those who are even slightly miffed I didn't include Blink....

In your opinion maybe but even by listening to them, I find them more enjoyable than some stories and New series episodes that I can watch and that's all that matters.

i cant see how missing stories that people have not seen can be counted in polls like this.ok the novels and soundtracks can give an idea of what the programmes were like but thats it.as an example before it was found tomb of the cybermen was the all time classic best thing since sliced bread dr who story of all time.after it turned up and people saw some of the storys production problems its reputation declined.people still enjoy the story but it is not as fondly thought of now its readily available on dvd.

Does it really matter on threads like this? People's opinions are not counting towards any poll, all they are doing is stating their top ten stories. And that is all that matters. What they think. If they choose to like a missing story over an existing story, it really is upto them.

Personally speaking, I found Tomb of The Cybermen better on watching it on video. It really is down to personal taste.

Even by listening to the missing stories, you can tell whether a story is good or not. This is helped by the many telesnaps available which give you a rough idea of how the story looked, so really, I don't see where the problem is in listing missing stories in any poll. In a complete list of stories they can't all be at the bottom of the list because they are missing. As I said previously a lot of them are better than stories you can watch. I mean, would you seriously rate Paradise Towers, Timelash and The Twin Dilemma higher than The Power Of The Daleks, the Web Of Fear or even The Abominable Snowmen? Would you? Really? Those stories even in audio form are better than the three stories that I mentioned.

No love for 'The Brain of Morbius'?

I can't pick ten. But that'd be in there.
