Just about to start Pertwee's era tomorrow and watch it and the Baker era. So far, I've only watched The Fifth Doctor onwards.

Davison
Best: The Caves of Androzani
Worst: Four to Doomsday

Colin Baker
Best: Trial of a Time Lord- Terror of the Vervoids (loved that story; even Mel was bearable)
Worst: The Twin Dilemma (quite possibly the worst piece of drama I've ever watched)
Special mention to The Two Doctors which was also abysmal.

McCoy
Best: The Curse of Fenric
Worst: Delta and the Bannermen

McGann
His only TV Movie was a bit meh, but I wouldn't call it terrible. I'm intending to eventually listen to some of McGann's audio stories in the future so one of those is likely to be the best but also probably the worst.

Eccleston
Best: Dalek
Worst: Boom Town (still far from terrible)

Tennant
Best: Human Nature/Family of Blood
Worst: Love and Monsters

Smith
Best: Amy's Choice
Worst: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe (again, I wouldn't call it terrible, but still the worst)

I'm afraid that I can't comment on old who and seen very few episodes and most from the Tom Baker era so am only going to go from Eccleston (McGann only having the film not being worth it for him):

Christopher Eccleston:
Best:Unquiet Dead (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances an extremely close second)
Worst: Aliens of London/World War 3

David Tennant:
Best: Blink (with out a shadow of a doubt)
Worst: Fear her (the worst Nu-who episode ever Love and Monsters is very close behind however)

Matt Smith:
Best: The Name of the Doctor
Worst: The Bells of Saint John
