50 years of Who: 2004

The first Who from 2004 that I encountered: the Short Trips: Past Tense anthology, bought in 2006, which  is a bit of a mixed bag.

My favourite Who from 2004: The Big Finish play The Harvest introduces a new companion and does something interesting with the Cybermen at the same time. Other good points: the first Gallifrey series; Paul Cornell's novelisation of Scream of the Shalka (which I liked more than the webcast); David McIntee's The Eleventh Tiger. Of course from the middle of the year we knew we were on hold for greater things.

Moving swiftly on from: Big Finish's Eighth Doctor stories, now set in an alternate universe supposedly without time, went through some dips here of which the lowest point is The Last.

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