Doctor Who - The Zygon Invasion


Here's the comparison of the Doctors' sixteenth adventures from best to worst:

1) The Robots of Death by Chris Boucher
2) The Mind Robber by Peter Ling and Derrick Sherwin
3) The Zygon Invasion by Peter Harness and Steven Moffat
4) A Good Man Goes to War by Steven Moffat
5) The Chase by Terry Nation
6) Carnival of Monsters by Robert Holmes
7) Evolution of the Daleks by Helen Raynor
8) The Awakening by Eric Pringle


Doctor Who - The Girl Who Died, The Woman Who Lived

I had a hard time deciding if The Girl Who Died and The Woman Who Lived were one story or two. I finally decided they were two stories due to the absence of Clara for most of The Woman Who Lived and the fact that it is obvious a lot of time has passed for the Doctor and even more of course for Ashildr. So it is more of a sequel than a continuation of the same story.

Edit: I have changed my mind as it seems official sources regard these as one story so I have amended my lists.

List of fifteenth stories from each Doctor from most to least favorite:

1) The Three Doctors by Bob Baker and Dave Martin
2) Warriors of the Deep by Johnny Byrne
3) The Face of Evil by Chris Boucher
4) The Girl Who Died, The Woman Who Lived by Jamie Mathieson, Steven Moffat and Catherine Treganna
5) The Rebel Flesh by Matthew Graham
6) Gridlock by Russell T. Davies
7) The Dominators by Norman Ashby (pseudonym of Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln)
8) The Space Museum by Glyn Jones
