    I don't think he had a 'best' season - there were strong and weak stories in each.

    Of course with Ace coming on board in Dragonfire things got better.

    The Doctor & Ace were a very good pairing - and it's a pity they didn't get better stories to do.

    Cheers, daveac

    Funny you should ask that as I have just been on a McCoy era re-watch as of late.

    That's tough for the same reason as Dave stated. His seasons were peppered with decent stories and not-so-decent stories.

    I think my favorite would have to have been season 26. I think it had some of the most interesting stories. Not to mention that I think Sylvester McCoy had finally found his footing in the role, too bad it had to be his final season as well. I think the stories were getting ready to take the Doctor in a darker direction than in previous years.

    "Like" is a very strong word to use when assessing the McCoy era.

    Im in the process of watching the 7th Doctor era for the first time and Im just getting ready to view the 26th season. So far Ive liked "Paradise Towers" and "DragonFire" - the Dalek and Cybermen stories were okay. But I think "Delta and the Bannerman" is the worst ever story with "Greatest Show in the Galaxy" a close second.
    Everyone Ive talked to says that the 26th season is the 7th Doctors stringest - so Im looking forwrd to a strong finish. --Billy
