It's got to be The Five Doctors. I have soft spots for Dimensions in Time and the Three Doctors and many others, but the five doctors is just lovely. It's got daleks and cybermen and the master and three and two and Rassilon and EVERYTHING. And of course the best thing is The Raston Warrior Robot. The Raston Warrior Robot should totally get an outing in the new series.

The thing about the Five Doctors for me, wonderful though it was, is that Tom Baker was still in the huff with the BBC and refused to take part so they had to use the footage from Shada for him which didn't really fit.

Pressed send too soon. Given he had been the longest serving Doctor at that stage, I would have thought that the BBC might have tried a little harder to get him to play ball.

As I understand it, it wasn't a case of the BBC not trying - they got Terrance Dicks to rewrite the script to suit Tom - it was simply that Tom didn't want to do it.

Anyway, I'll go for 5 Doctors, as it does have pretty much everything in it. I'd spare a side glance for Timeslip, which is also lovely, but doesn't have the nostalgic element which 5Drs has.

Yes, I think I agree. The lack of Tom and the faux-Hartnell are a bit unfortunate, but those can easily be forgiven because of all the other goodies on offer, such as: "Not the Mind Probe!"

The only MAJOR problem I have with it is the pathetic little grassy slope that Sarah Jane "falls" down. They really should have given that the elbow.

Pertwee on a zip wire, and driving Bessie, and encountering Cybermen! :D

Ah yes, the cunning "Easy as Pi" death trap! :D
