The Top Ten

1 Genesis Of The Daleks

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 - 2storm

Best of them all

Story about the creation of the Daleks and Davros is a chilling creation.

2 The Tomb of the Cybermen

This story is thrilling and nail-biting, for a black and white story it is far more believable and exciting than modern day counterparts.

3 City of Death

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.
