The first Who from 1983 that I encountered: I caught only about half the episodes this year due to a clash with music lessons, but did get the first episode of Arc of Infinity in January. I was 15.

My favourite Who from 1983: For us old school fans, the reunion of Pertwee and Troughton is a true joy, with Davison and Hurndall (and the various companions) doing their bit too. Also, as a Clare graduate now, I still love the punting scene from Shada (yes, I know I've said it before).

Moving swiftly on from:The Doctor Who - Time-Flight noveliasation, which is even worse than the original TV story broadcast the previous year.

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