Dimensions in Time

The Paradise of Death (3)

The first Who from 1993 that I encountered: God help me, I watched Dimensions In Time when it was first broadcast. I was 26 and newly married.

My favourite Who from 1993: Lucifer Rising, by one of my favourite Who writers (though he has done a lot of other stuff) Andy Lane, just shades it over John Peel's late novelisation of The Power of the Daleks and Iceberg by Cyberleader David Banks.

Moving swiftly on from: The Pit, which is really one of the worst Who books I have ever read. Really, if you cringe at Dimensions in Time (and who doesn't?) or The Paradise of Death, this is in a completely different category.

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