50 years of Who: 1992

1992:

The first Who from 1992 that I encountered: The script of The Masters of Luxor, the unmade story from 1963. If they'd done that instead of the Daleks, well, I wouldn't be writing this series of posts because the show would have ended in 1964!

My favourite Who from 1992: In the year when the New Adventures really started to get into their stride, it's a tough choice between Nightshade and Love and War, and since this is my project I can just refuse to choose. I like them both a lot.

Moving swiftly on from: Cat's Cradle - Witch Mark, which has the worst cod-Celticism in the entire Whoniverse, even including the story of The Five Leafed Clover.

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