    I love Black Orchid, simply because there wasn't a monster in it. You don't need them to make a good Doctor Who story. Oh and of course, 'Caves' but everyone says that!

    As for the worst? I can't think of one, all of his episode are pretty consistent.

    Please check out my blog, as I attempt to watch and review EVERY Doctor Who episode!

    Hard to say
    truth is I felt back then that they should never have kille off Adric only to replace him with fake male companions until the awful Turlugh arrved but here goes:

    I used to love BLACK ORCHID but watching it now…with the commentary on…everything the stars comment on is true, how bland and flawed.

    Okay Best: I would have to say EARTHSHOCK, THE FIVE DOCTORS, and…uhm, that’s about it. No, not really. I really like KINDA and sometimes SNAKEDANCE. I found Peter himself really good in the three part Black Guardian nonsense. I like ENLIGHTNEMENT. Oh dear, but I like WARRIORS OF THE DEEP. Except for that dumb lady kicking a karate kick at the monster that can electrify anything it touches. That was embarrassing. I like VISITATION and I even like FOUR TO DOOMSDAY. THE AWAKENING shows Peter and co off in a good light but it feels a bit rushed. Gosh, I liked KING’S DEMONS part one. I think most of the ones I hate (see below) need to be rewatched for a reassessment. I loved CASTROVALVA.

    Worst: ARC OF INFINITY (was that really Gallifrey? Was that really Omega? Was that the Matrix?) , MAWDRYN UNDEAD (really quite daft despite a few great ideas and scenes), TERMINUS. While we’re on it, the first three episodes of CAVES OF ANDROZANI need a rewatching by me because I recall those as being terminally dull except for three’s cliffhanger. TIMEFLIGHT is so bad. I once achieved getting a co worker to watch DOCTOR WHO but unfortunately that night it aired, it was TERMINUS. She HATED the show and tore it apart. KING’S DEMONS part two.

    Best:Castrovalva,Four To Doomesday,Earthshock,Arc of Infinity,Mawdryn Undead,The Five Doctors, The Awakening,Resurrection of the Daleks,Planet of Fire & of course, Caves of Androzani not only the best 5th Doctor story but one of the best story's ever.
    Worst:Black Orchid-Not only the worst Peter Davidson but the worst Dr Who story ever, Time Flight,Warriors of the Deep.
