The first Who from 1985 that I encountered: My memory is that I didn't in fact catch any of Attack of the Cybermen on first broadcast, and that Vengeance on Varos was the first story this season that I watched first time round. I was 17.

My favourite Who from 1985: This isn't a high point on screen, is it? On the other hand, both Doctor Who - The Myth Makers and Doctor Who - The Invasion are pretty good novelisations.

Moving swiftly on from: Knowing what we do now, In A Fix With Sontarans is pretty unpalatable.

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

Revelation of the Daleks, again on the BBC 2 re-runs. The horrid moment where we find out what Davros wants with the bodies stands out a fair bit in a good way.

-Vengeance- and -Revelation- have some moments, as does -Mark of the Rani,- but I am struck by how thoroughly I have come to despise -Attack of the Cybermen- since I re-watched it in my thirties. It seems to embody everything cruel and thoughtless about the program's low points in one dripping package.
