    That's a toughy, I love both stories, but I pick Invasion.

    The introduction of UNIT and it set the stage for the Pertwee era.

    "Are you my mummy?" or "Hey, who turned out the lights?"

    "Are you my mummy?" is incredibly creepy, no contest.
    This one is based on both portrayal of the author and the overall episode the author is in
    Charles Dickens (The Unquiet Dead) or Agatha Christie (The Unicorn and the Wasp)?

    Well for the protrayal - Fenella Woolgar as Agatha Christie (The Unicorn and the Wasp)

    In fact I'm listenning to her on DWO Whocast Episode 72 as I type.

    A talking paving slab OR a talking library slab?

    Cheers, daveac

    Talking library slab, no mention of a love life with those thankfully.

    Thanks Elton, NOT!

    For the record the so-called library slabs are called Nodes. Wink

    Origins of the Universe or Everest In Easy Stages?

    I'd have to go for Everest, just cos I love books about mountain climbing. Touching the Void is one of the most harrowing books I've ever read. Any more Joe Simpson fans out there?

    OK way back to the beginnings now:

    Ian or Barbara?

    Barbara. Jackie's just a better actor, full stop. Plus, her teaching subject is of bigger help to the TARDIS crew than Ian's.

    Better in a fight: Genny or Leela? (Are we spelling the name of the Doctor's daughter with a "G", as the episode implied, or a "J"? Never quite figured that one out yet.)

    When in doubt, you can always check the credits...

    It's Jenny!

    Has to be Leela. What with her marvelous Janus Thorns and her knck of fighting off a Chinese assassin (probably played by somebody not Chinese!)

    Next: Sil or Mr. Sin?

    Sil, they'll give you an inside track on what stocks to buy.

    "Everybody lives!" or "Wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey"

    "Wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey" because it gives us plenty of story plot twists whereas "Everybody lives!" should be used sparingly.

    'key' or 'finger click' to open the TARDIS

    KEY KEY KEY KEY KEY!
    This isn't some corny Sci-Fi with finger clicks or winks!
    What did River Song whisper in the Doctor's ear?
    'Arthur Fonzarelli'
    EYYYYYY!!!
    What's next? a quick dig to the Taris Console to get it working?
    NO THANK YOU!
    bring the key back, it's soooo...British!

    'Be imprisoned indefinitely with a few mates in a computer simulation?' - not imprisoned - I'm here by choice.

    That's also my answer.

    Trapped in the edge of a mirror

    OR

    Turned into a Scarecrow

    Stones, baby, Stones. Absolutely no question. K-9's glorious in that story. The story's driven almost entirely by women. And the Doctor gets to come in at the end to save things as only Tom Baker could: by pulling a solicitor's wig out of his pocket and simply talking computers down. "Family of Blood" is great stuff but it's hardly as much fun. And Jessica Hynes ain't no Beatrix Lehmann. I mean, getting Lehmann on the show was, at the time, a coup on the order of getting Derek Jacobi to play the Master. "Family" would've had to have had, I dunno, Dame Judi Dench to even be in the running.
