50 years of Who: 1981

1981:

TV
Warriors' Gate
The Keeper of Traken
Logopolis
K9 and Company: A Girl's Best Friend

Books
Doctor Who and the Creature from the Pit (4)
Doctor Who and the Enemy of the World (2)
Doctor Who and An Unearthly Child (1)
1982 Doctor Who Annual (4/5)

The first Who from 1981 that I encountered: By this stage I was watching religiously, and made sure to catch Warrior's gate on first broadcast. I was 13.

My favourite Who from 1981: This is a good year, actually. The TV stories are all weird and different, but I'm actually going to single out two of the books, Doctor Who and the Creature from the Pit and Doctor Who and the Enemy of the World, both of which are improvements on the original story.

Moving swiftly on from: K9 and Company.

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

1963 | 1964 | 1965 | 1966 | 1967 | 1968 | 1969 | 1970 | 1971 | 1972 | 1973 | 1974 | 1975 | 1976 | 1977 | 1978 | 1979 | 1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 | 1985 | 1986 | 1987 | 1988 | 1989 | 1990 | 1991 | 1992 | 1993 | 1994 | 1995 | 1996 | 1997 | 1998 | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013

Warriors' Gate is one of my favourites of all of classic Who, because of the strangeness but also because the supporting characters are all real people. And like every series from Meglos to Keeper of Traken, but better, it shows a small part of an enormously long story.

Having said that, you missed out the most important Who on TV in 1981, which was The Five Faces. I remember crouching in front of the TV with a cassette recorder for those, not sure when I'd ever get to experience them again.

I didn't miss out the Five Faces; just filed it separately!
