50 years of Who: 1970

1970:

TV
Spearhead from Space
Doctor Who and the Silurians
The Ambassadors of Death
Inferno

Book
1971 Doctor Who Annual (3)

The first Who from 1970 that I encountered: I watched Spearhead from Space in 2006, quite early on in my rediscovery of old Who.

My favourite Who from 1970: Of the four stories, I do think that Spearhead from Space stands out - it looks different due to being entirely on film, we have the Brigadier at his freshest, we have Liz used well, and we don't have too much Pertwee. But I also want to shout out for the 1971 Annual, which is one of the best of that particular range.

Moving swiftly on from: Actually none of this is terrible. I think the plot in all three seven-parters rambles a bit, and I'm not a fan of the carefully choreographed fight scenes - not that I think they are bad, it's just not my thing.

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