Top Ten?

As part of the media storm (that surpasses pre-season 30 attention), The Telegraph have published a list of the Top 10 Greatest Doctor Who stories courtesy of former Mastermind contestant Gavin Fuller, who won the knowledge competition in 1993 with a specialist subject of Doctor Who.

The list is interesting, and certainly worthy of further discussion.

10. Blink (David Tennant, 2007)
9. The Massacre of St Bartholomew’s Eve (William Hartnell, 1966)
8. Inferno (Jon Pertwee, 1970)
7. Human Nature/Family of Blood (David Tennant, 2007)
6. The Curse of Fenric (Sylvester McCoy, 1989)
5. City of Death (Tom Baker, 1979)
4. The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances (Christopher Eccleston, 2005)
3. Genesis of the Daleks (Tom Baker, 1975)
2. The Caves of Androzani (Peter Davison, 1984)
1. The Talons of Weng-Chiang (Tom Baker, 1977)

Certainly, no mention of Tomb of the Cybermen – but then why should there be? And does this list make sense?
