    This Hurt/Heal was by far the easiest. There seemed little difference in opinion between us, unlike the great 'Ark in Space' vs. 'Genesis of the Daleks' vs. 'Talons of Weng Chiang' from the Tom Baker Hurt/Heal.

    The only episode which ranked lower than most people would probably expect was the War Games. I really like this episode...however it's too long and padded. Maybe it could have been a six parter? Anyway, that's why I voted it down sort-of early.

    I also watched The Krotons during this Hurt/Heal and didn't think it was THAT bad, but I had no way to compare it to Space Pirates or Fury from the Deep, as I never saw those episodes.

    Anyway - good one chaps.

    Yeah, great result I think that Web is a good representative episode of the Troughton era. Loved the book as a child and the audio later as an adult. Personally, I have always preferred the Victoria/ Jamie dynamic to the Zoe/Jamie one.
    There are some fabulous stories for the second Doctor and my only real criticism is an over-reliance on the cybermen, who seem to pop up every other episode. Having said that, I feel that Tomb is a very deserving 2nd place. In fact there is very little to seperate the top ten IMHO.

    I certainly don't mind Web of Fear winning but I'm a little surprised to see Power of the Daleks and Evil of the Daleks in such relatively low positions. For me they are easily two of the very best Dalek serials alongside Genesis and 'Master Plan and would both have made the top 5 in my Troughton ratings.
    Similarly I'm surprised at Fury from the Deep "only" getting 8th position as it usually gets rated as one of the most wanted missing serials.

    I know a lot of people consider The War Games to be bloated and dull for many episodes, but I absolutely love it and would place it higher than 10th. I can't wait for the DVD next month.

    I'd also place The Mind Robber much higher and I don't really understand how The Moonbase got into 5th place but otherwise I agree with this list.

    I find the Troughton and Hartnell eras are the most challenging to rate because of the missing episodes. It's hard to compare stories I've only listened to/seen re-cons of with those that still exist. I suspect I tend to be more forgiving of missing episodes than I would be if I actually saw them.
