The first Who from 1989 that I encountered: I have a feeling I caught the end of The Greatest Show in the Galaxy when it was first broadcast on 4 January. I was 21.

My favourite Who from 1989: Ghost Light is utterly entrancing.

Moving swiftly on from: Hale and Pace.

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

Of course, the saddest bit is the very end of Old Who:
There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea's asleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, and somewhere else the tea's getting cold. Come on, Ace. We've got work to do.
