Hello Whovians!

So I've been thinking of this new doctor who game it might not work but it's worth a try.

Basically we work through the seasons of doctor who (both Classic and New series) and the public (you lot) must send me a list of those stories in the order that they like the most. Lines will be open for only about an hour at a time.

However I also need 4 judges (I shall be one so I actually need 3) when the lines close I will send the judges the top 3 they must each pick a winner. So all in all there will be 33 winners and from that we will have heats to decide which is the best doctor who story ever.

So who wants to be a judge (they must be quite committed to this as it will go on for a while, they must also have seen quite a lot of who stories from both classic and new)

Thanks and I hope you like the sound of this game

I do like the sound of it!

I'll put myself forward as a judge. I've seen all of the new series several times - some episodes more than 10 times, I guess. I've seen well over half of the classic series and am willing to watch any episodes I haven't seen before voting.

If you need another judge, I saw most of classic Who, and all of NuWho, on first transmission, on VHS and on DVD many times. I also owned and read all of the Target novelisations.

Great thanks. I suppose I could do it with 3 judges. I'll give people until 9:30 tonight to sign up to be a judge if nobody does then there'll be 3

Okay so we have our panel

Doctorwhofancal (me)
Deppiedoo
Dr.Linus

So Its going to be a long ride but here we go. We're starting with Season 1 (1963-1964). The stories are:

An Unearthly Child
The Daleks
The Edge of Destruction
Marco Polo
The Keys Of Marinus
The Aztecs
The Sensorites
The Reign Of Terror

So as you can see there's eight stories there. What you have to do is PM me with your order from best story to worst by using number order 8 being best being worst. An example (this isn't my order) might be

8 (your favourite)- The Keys Of Marinus
7 (2nd favourite)- The Daleks
6 (3rd favourite)- The Reign Of Terror
5 (4th favourite)- Marco Polo
4 (5th favourite)- An Unearthly Child
3 (6th favourite)- The Sensorites
2 (7th favourite)- The Aztecs
1 (Least Favourite)- The Edge Of Destruction

Our judging panel can also vote. You only have 45 minutes for this so lines close at 10:30. Get voting!

I've been thinking -just a suggestion - maybe it would be a good idea to start with the New Dr Who series,as i would guess more people on the forum have seen all the episodes than the early classic series? It would help the voting gain momentum and maybe even give people like me a chance to try to watch some of the earlier episodes so we can then vote?
I think this competition is a great idea and I'd like it to succeed, hence my suggestion

The Unquiet Dead
