The first Who from 1986 that I encountered: This was the year I started university (and spent September inter-railing) and did not see a single episode of the Trial of a Time Lord until 2007. I think the first Who material from 1986 which I got hold of was Ian Marter's book, Harry Sullivan's War, which I read in 2006, twenty years later.

My favourite Who from 1986: Doctor Who - The Gunfighters, a hilarious novelisation.

Moving swiftly on from: er, everything else? Certainly the mess of the last two TV episodes.

So, what was your favourite of the above? What is the best bit? (And if you like, what is the worst bit?)
