There are over 90 missing Classic Who episodes. Some fans want various episodes to be recovered, such as Power of the Daleks and The Daleks' Master Plan, while some don't want others to be recovered, because they're considered boring.

If any NuWho episodes were to go missing, and we didn't have the dvds, which ones would you miss the most?

You can have more than one answer.

I would hate missing Blink and The Waters of Mars.

@Eighth Doctor,

I liked Fear Her but I hated Love and Monsters - when I first saw it I asked my dad "Is this definitely Doctor Who?"

Me too
Love and Monsters more like Doctor Who parody.
Fear Her is average IMO.

It won't happen.
The new era were all released digitally and on DVD and sold by the truck load.

The technology was not readily available in the 60's for fans to be able to just go out and buy or download copies to keep, that is why when the originals were destroyed it was so hard to recover other copies

OK, so maybe I should have posted

"Why don't we rename this thread, 'Another inane post your list of favourite nu who episodes' "

as that is all it really boils down to.

Have to agree it is a name your favourite nu who episode by any other name. A bit pointless imo.

If New Who episodes were ever wiped from the archives because of a blunder, it would bring about a hilarious situation where the BBC suddenly turns to the Pirate Bay to remedy the situation

I always thought this one was largely mediocre. With only the ending sequence being anything memorable.

Hypothetically, I would swap every episode 2005 onwards for the missing Hartnell and Troughton ones.

No, the correct answer would be to post nothing at all.

Personally I think my choice (and I'll stick to just one) would be The Parting of The Ways. Even as one half of a two part story I still think it stands a pretty perfect 45(ish) minutes of TV.

Honestly, I'd be upset if any of them were lost. Even Fear Her and Love & Monsters.
