The first Who from 2011 that I encountered: An excellent start to a better year for the Big Finish Companion Chronicles, with Peri and the Piscon Paradox. I was 43.

My favourite Who from 2011: Well, The Doctor's Wife was always going to be a favourite, and remains so. Rewatching the TV stories I found they were better than I remembered, thought the series was not quite equal to the sum of its parts. Peri and the Piscon Paradox was my favourite audio of the year, though there were many excellent plays in the various BF series, the two Jago and Litefoot sequences being perhaps a high point. Torchwood: Miracle Day was OK on TV, but had a super prequel in James Goss's novel First Born (and the audio House of the Dead gave poor Ianto some good closure). Two more very good books at the end of the year: Dan Abnett's The Silent Stars Go By and once again the Brilliant Book, with James Goss's Vastra/Jenny origin story.

Moving swiftly on from: Paradox Lost, though the audio version is lifted by Nick Briggs' narration; Hunter's Moon also pretty poor.

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