The first Who from 1984 that I encountered: Again, I had a clash with music lessons, but caught some of Warriors of the Deep in January. I was 16.

My favourite Who from 1984: It took me a while to come round to it, but definitely Caves of Androzani.

Moving swiftly on from: The Twin Dilemma. Deservedly last in most polls of all Who stories. (Though we are fortunate to have been spared The Prison in Space and Mission to Magnus.)

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