Funniest Episode
  • Unintentionally funny: The Krotons - combines the traditional "OMG those monsters are rubbish" funny with some really hilarious cod science.

  • Intentionally funny: City of Death - chock full of witty lines and amusing historical revisionism.

  • Honourable mention: The Kingmaker - more historical revisionism, with a hilariously deadpan Richard III. I have chosen to consider this audio play to be actual historical fact in my headcanon.
Scariest Episode

Track one of the Big Finish audio play Davros. The rest of the play could quite conceivably go into funniest, as it's basically an odd couple farce of Six and Davros being forced to work together, but that opening track is stunningly well-written, and a pitch-perfect performance from Molloy.

Funniest episode - mostly (I think) delberately - Horns of Nimon. Weakling scum, split trousers, Graham Crowden's search for an entirely new way of speaking English and Major Bloodnok's stomach.

Scariest episode - Blink, Jubilee, Chimes of Midnight.

Ooh, Chimes of Midnight was great. (Especially as it showed how good Paul McGann could have been).

Funniest episode: well, yes, City of Death.

I was 18, but the moment when the corpse under water opened his eyes still gave me a chill.

That may have been the "please switch it off, Mum" moment for me, actually. I was extra creeped out by the story because Lulworth Cove was our regular beach destination. I lost count of the picnics we had on the exact spot where the Russian sniper aims at Jean and Phyllis on the beach.

Scariest for me was Terror of the Vervoids, as it was one of the first I saw, and I'd seen clips from Day of the Triffids at about the same time. The bit in The Ultimate Foe with the hands grabbing him from the sandpit comes a close second. Other than that there hasn't been much to really terrify me. Blink is about as close as the new series has come I think.

Fenris is probably the best horror I've seen from Who. But there's a difference between what that and "I'm not sure I want to watch this any more"

Funniest episode is tricky, because I can think of lots of funny moments in stories that are otherwise deadly serious, and I tend to find that the intentionally funny stories aren't usually very successful. I'll go with the final episode of The Daemons, because that "five rounds rapid" line never fails to make me weep with laughter. I'll give the unintentional comedy award to The Web Planet.

The scariest episode is The Talons of Weng-Chiang because of Mr Sin, who gave me nightmares for weeks when I was a lad, and who still freaks me out to this day!
