The first Who from 1988 that I encountered:  I watched Remembrance of the Daleks at some point in the wilderness years (and also bought it at the 2005 Worldcon).

My favourite Who from 1988: I really like The Happiness Patrol, and I have come around to the virtues of Remembrance of the Daleks. Among the books, Doctor Who - The Rescue is Ian Marter's last and best.

Moving swiftly on from: the Pip-and-Jane-Baker novelisations.

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

-Remembrance- changed my life. I've come to feel much fondness for -The Happiness Patrol,- and I think -The Greatest Show in the Galaxy- is a minor classic... really the only clunker in the bunch is -Silver Nemesis,- and even it has a few decent bits (I dig Lady Peinforte and her poor servant, and I'm an Ace fan for life, even if the 80s Cybermen were getting incredibly fragile at this point...).
