List of Classic Doctor Who Stories

What the title says. Very boring, for my own reference more than anything. Behind a LJ cut for length, obviously.

I've been adding little notes for some stories, similarities to other stories, things that stood out, thoughts about the Doctor involved, and so on. ...and some minor ranting.


First Doctor - William Hartnell (1963-66)

Season 1

An Unearthly Child
The Daleks
The Edge of Destruction - Completely contained within the TARDIS. First hints that the TARDIS itself might be sentient.
Marco Polo -- MISSING
The Keys of Marinus
The Aztecs - Doctor: "I made cocoa and got engaged."
The Sensorites
The Reign of Terror -- PARTIALLY MISSING

Season 2

Planet of Giants
The Dalek Invasion of Earth
The Rescue
The Romans - Kind of uncharacteristic of the First Doctor in places (though the same things would be quite in character for later Doctors) but still worth watching.
The Web Planet
The Crusade -- PARTIALLY MISSING
The Space Museum - Ah, the Doctor and museums. But, an event in a planet's past, but your personal future, WILL NOT HAPPEN TO YOU if you don't somehow wind up back in time on that same planet. GAH. WRONG, SO VERY WRONG. I love time travel theory and related paradoxes, the more complicated the better, but THIS gives me a headache.
The Chase - I shall miss Ian and Barbara.
The Time Meddler

Season 3

Galaxy 4 -- MISSING
Mission to the Unknown -- MISSING
The Myth Makers -- MISSING
The Daleks' Master Plan -- PARTIALLY MISSING
The Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve -- MISSING
The Ark
The Celestial Toymaker -- PARTIALLY MISSING
The Gunfighters
The Savages -- MISSING
The War Machines

Season 4

The Smugglers -- MISSING
The Tenth Planet -- PARTIALLY MISSING

Second Doctor - Patrick Troughton (1966-69)

Season 4 Continued

The Power of the Daleks -- MISSING
The Highlanders -- MISSING

The Dominators - Man, I love Two.
The Mind Robber
The Invasion - Lost episodes reconstructed, with animation to match the recovered original audio.
The Krotons
The Seeds of Death
The Space Pirates -- PARTIALLY MISSING
The War Games - I knew the second Doctor would regenerate, and the circumstances surrounding that regeneration, but still, I am sad to see that TARDIS crew split up, and the Doctor regenerated.

Third Doctor - Jon Pertwee (1970-74)

Season 7

Spearhead from Space
Doctor Who and the Silurians
The Ambassadors of Death
Inferno - Watch before The Hungry Earth two parter of new series...

Season 8

Terror of the Autons
The Mind of Evil
The Claws of Axos
Colony in Space
The Daemons

Season 9

Day of the Daleks
The Curse of Peladon - A little odd to be watching directly after the first Doctor in The Romans. Not as close a match as some new series episodes were to classic stories, but there were several similarities.
The Sea Devils - The Doctor vs Master swordfight I had heard about was in this one! Eee!
The Mutants
The Time Monster - Oh man, came in a box-set with two Four stories, and I love Four, but EASILY my favourite story of the three. Loved this one.

Season 10

The Three Doctors - Kind of surprised they got the original First back, and kind of sad too. He was obviously reading his lines from just off-screen.
Carnival of Monsters
Frontier in Space
Planet of the Daleks
The Green Death - Had me tearing up in the first ten minutes. Saddest happily ever after ever. Goodbye, Jo. I barely knew you.

Season 11

The Time Warrior - Hello Sarah Jane!
Invasion of the Dinosaurs
Death to the Daleks
The Monster of Peladon - Ah, Aggedor, you'll always look like ALF to me. Three certainly is growing on me. I think I may even prefer him of all of the Doctors, even Four.
Planet of the Spiders - Bit sad towards the end, Sarah Jane, the Brigadier, third Doctor, knowing that all three actors have passed on.

Fourth Doctor - Tom Baker (1974-81)

Season 12

Robot
The Ark in Space
The Sontaran Experiment
Genesis of the Daleks
Revenge of the Cybermen

Season 13

Terror of the Zygons
Planet of Evil - Watch before the episode titled '42' of the new series.
Pyramids of Mars
The Android Invasion
The Brain of Morbius
The Seeds of Doom

Season 14

The Masque of Mandragora - The third Doctor may have an interesting ongoing storyline, but Tom Baker (fourth) is such a joy to watch. Pure and simple, joy. And the things he does with that scarf, brilliant!
The Hand of Fear - Eldrad must live!
The Deadly Assassin
The Face of Evil
The Robots of Death
The Talons of Weng-Chiang - This one is way better than it sounds. Definitely worth getting.

Sixth Doctor - Colin Baker (1984-86)

Season 21 Continued

The Twin Dilemma - ... there are no words. Just... no words. Don't know who that is, but he's not the Doctor.

Season 22

Attack of the Cybermen - Doctor: "Unstable? Unstable?! UNSTABLE?! This right now is as stable as you will ever see me." Peri: "Oh dear." Also, finally fixed the Chameleon circuit... kind of. The TARDIS was various things throughout the story, ending as the familiar police box, but not once did it 'blend in'.
Vengeance on Varos
The Mark of the Rani
The Two Doctors - Huh, 6 is starting to grow on me. Still can't stand Peri.
Timelash - It's not quite as bad as the 'making of' featurette on the DVD implies.
Revelation of the Daleks

Season 23 - The Trial of a Time Lord

The Mysterious Planet - This is bizarre. 6 is acting like the Doctor. Even being kind to Peri. How... odd.
Mindwarp - Brian Blessed being loud and smashing things. I am liking this season more and more.
Terror of the Vervoids - So that's past, present, and future... What's next?
The Ultimate Foe - Some magnificent Doctorly outrage against the Time Lords.

Seventh Doctor - Sylvester McCoy (1987-89)

Season 24

Time and the Rani
Paradise Towers
Delta and the Bannermen
Dragonfire

Season 25

Rememberance of the Daleks

Battlefield - Ah, the Brigadier! When the Brig packs it in, you know the end is close at hand.
Ghost Light
The Curse of Fenric
