Perfection, plain and simple. There is not a single flaw in the story. Amazing Doctor, amazing companion, AMAZING villains, amazing guests cast, amazing writing, amazing score, amazing... Well, amazing everything.
1. City of Death 2. Genesis of the Daleks
A near perfect production
You get to see the creation of the Daleks that by itself would be enough.
A classic in its own right, this story introduced one of the most known villains in the series, Davros. It is also the most thought provoking of the classic series.
This one has to be the best
Best of them all
This story is thrilling and nail-biting, for a black and white story it is far more believable and exciting than modern day counterparts.
Thrilling and probably the scariest story in the shows history.
Great story, great characters and great cliffhangers
Most underrated story in the shows history. "Doctor Who's first nightmare" as Douglas Camfeild put it. The one and only story of Classic Who were I was genuinely unsettled.
Great concept, exciting, amazing execution, and a unique unelsettling time make this easily the best third doctor story
This regeneration story is quite different from the others, and in a good way too.
It’s a lose/lose situation, The Doctor and Peri just land in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Brilliant the doctor fighting off his regeneration until he can save Peri and 3 excellent cliff hangers at the ends of parts 1,3 and 4 yes 4 and part 3 cliffhanger one of the very best
Best final story of an outing doctor, great story, great villain, great performances.
Best story. The writing,cliffhangers, execution, and villain, all perfect.
It's a perfect example of Doctor Who.

Introduction of the Time Lords.
Second Doctor's swan song.
All antagonists are always at odds making for a thrilling watch, especially given that each are situated in and authors of the worst periods in human history.
