    Android Invasion –2/10—a poor story
    Brain of Morbius---7/10-frankenstein anyone?
    Seeds of Doom---7/10--favorite Who line of the series happens in this one. Guard: "Are you in charge here?". Tom: "No, but I have alot of good ideas." Brilliant.
    Masque of Mandragora—6/10
    Hand of Fear---7/10
    Deadly Assassin---9/10; brilliant
    Face of Evil---8/10
    Robots of Death—8/10
    Talons of Weng Chiang---8/10
    Horror of Fang Rock---8/10
    The Invisible Enemy—4/10—poor story, but it gets a "4" for the 1st appearance of K-9
    Image of the Fendahl---10/10—am biased, this is my first Who ever and remember it fondly, love it to death
    The Sunmakers—7/10—clever dialog
    Invasion of Time—2/10--this thing is a mess; feels like it wasn't so much written but slapped together as it went; good concept, poor execution.
    Ribos Operation---8/10
    Pirate Planet—9/10
    Stones of Blood---9/10
    Androids of Tara---6/10
    Power of Kroll---8/10
    Armageddon Factor---5/10—too long and drawn out, but like the hidden Time Lord, the Doctor's old friend hiding in the caves.
    Destiny of the Daleks--8/10--the images of Skaro have stuck with me since being a kid
    City of Death---9/10
    Creature from the Pit---4/10
    Nightmare of Eden—4/10
    Horns of Nimon—8/10---not the clunker everyone believes it to be; with some better effects and some less overacting, could have been great
    Leisure Hive—3/10—not a favorite, but thought if any of the current Doctor's wanted to visit #4, this would be the perfect place to visit him, seeing as how he is "old"
    Full Circle---6/10---Adric is a great companion
    State of Decay---7/10-liked the vampire idea
    Warrior’s Gate—8/10--always sad to see Romana leave

    What we observe is not Nature Itself, but Nature exposed to our method of questioning.
