The first Who from 2006 that I encountered: Yep, I tuned in for New Earth. I was 38.

My favourite Who from 2006: Well, nothing quite packs the emotional impact of School Reunion. But The Kingmaker is another favourite Big Finish audio, the second Sarah Jane audio series is even better than the first, and I, Davros is brilliant too. The books are much less memorable this year, with the old ranges ended and the new just getting started.

Moving swiftly on from: Nicola Bryant is very ill-used in The Reaping.

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

I, who had never watched Old Who, but knew who Sarah Jane Smith was, was in bits over the beginning of School Reunion, which I think Tennant sold so brilliantly that even if you had no idea who she was it had to have worked. Although I'm inclined to feel he wasn't so much selling it as really honestly just being there in that moment himself, because, well.

I loved Girl in the Fireplace too, of course, but positively loathed Love & Monsters; when I rewatched the first 3 or 4 seasons a while back that's the only episode I skipped. Ugh.

As one of the four people who loved Love and Monsters I feel an urge to say that, but I also loved Small Worlds from Torchwood. To me that's the one that shows who Jack is. Jack is the guy who makes the terrible decisions that are right for the greater good and wrong in all other senses (see also the end of Children of Earth).

I loathed parts of the Idiot's Lantern and The Impossible Planet two parter. Mostly because a Doctor not complaining about people keeping slaves is not a Doctor I want any part of.

Girl in the Fireplace is something special. Oddly enough it reminded me of "The Inner Light" episode of Star Trek Next Gen. It has this special sense of a compressed human life which gives it a resonance that really make it stand out.

Fond of the Impossible Planet/Satan Pit story in part because of the very great voice of Gabriel Voice - the same voice of ultimate evil from Pyramids of Mars. One day I will steal and absorb the voice of Gabriel Woolf. And then all will fear me.
