Film
Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.

The first Who from 1966 that I encountered: I remember finding and avidly devouring the 1967 Doctor Who Annual at a cousin's house in the late 1970s; but I am pretty sure I also saw Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. on TV around that time. (And again, perhaps the film doesn't count.) Once I got back into Who, The Massacre was one of the first audios I bought.

My favourite Who from 1966: A difficult choice. I prefer The Power of the Daleks to The Evil of the Daleks, which is a minority position; I also really enjoy The Gunfighters, which is also a minority position. Of course, the most memorable sequence is the change from Hartnell to Troughton between the end of The Tenth Planet and the beginning of The Power of the Daleks.

Moving swiftly on from: The Celestial Toymaker.

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