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?)

Logopolis for my nine-year-old self — the paradoxical situation in which the Doctor's TARDIS was materialized around the Master's TARDIS and vice versa has stuck with me ever since (also the joke in which they escape out of a never-seen back door is still funny).
