The first Who from 1987 that I encountered:  Once again, it was not until quite late in my rediscovery of Old Who that I got to Season 24, and the first 1987-vintage Who that I remember is another Ian Marter novelisation, Doctor Who - The Reign of Terror.

My favourite Who from 1987: For the third year in a row, a Donald Cotton novelisation of a First Doctor story, this time Doctor Who - The Romans.

Moving swiftly on from: Time and the Rani - I don't hate it as much as most of fandom, but I will agree that it is weak.

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