    Taking into account the totality of the Seventh Doctor's era—televised episodes, audios, comic strip outings, and novels alike—what one adventure do you think is the best?

    Live 34. Wait, wait, I know it's not traditional, but I like it because of it's approach, and it's the one doctor who story that I can't get out of my head, even though I haven't listened to it since it was new, which was probably close to 8 months or a year ago. That story, the way it was done especially, REALLY stayed with me, and says to me that all 7th doctor stories don't have to be incoherent or silly. I loved it.

    I would agree with Live 34 or The Master

    I think I would most definitely have to go for "Remembrance of the Daleks" as the best overall story, then some of the better audios - "the genocide machine", "Colditz", "the Dark Flame" and "Project Lazarus". I seem to remember enjoying "Silver Nemisis" also, but the exact details of it seem vague at the moment.

    I'd have to go with the Dalek episode as well. Just bought Night Thoughts on CD, which I found really enjoyable.

    I actually loved Silver Nemesis. I like the comparason of the Cybermen to Nazi's. LOL

    The Seventh Doctor of the Virgin New Adventures was a great development of the character. I have not read all of them, but like what I've got through so far for the most part.

    Of the televised stories, the best complete package was The Curse of Fenric. It's just too bad that the production couldn't afford night shoots. That would have put that story over the top... It even has a great sound track.

    I like how in some of the Big Finish audios, the Seventh Doctor appears occasionally to tie up a loose end. Of the audios, my favorite was Harvest and Master is a close second.

    probably silver nemesis, although i would have enjoyed it more if the cybermen turned up earlier so they could have blown away courtney pine.

    In TV terms I liked Remembrance of the Daleks - silly, classic and revelling in being Doctor Who, plus we got to see some top notch (for the time) special effects and the first time the Daleks climb stairs. For audio it's a toss up between Sylvester McCoy's more serious outings - either Master or Night Thoughts; both of which gave me the jitters at some point.

    I'd also have to put my two pence in for Remembrance of the Daleks or Battlefield.
