The first Who from 1978 that I encountered: I definitely watched Underworld on first broadcast, starting 7 January. At least after that the only way was up…

My favourite Who from 1978: It’s a very difficult choice between the end of episode 4 of The Invasion of Time, one of the best twists in the history of the show, and the opening scenes of The Ribos Operation, with the fantastic banter between Tom Baker and Mary Tamm. The latter is of course the better story by far.

Moving swiftly on from: Underworld, especially the appalling CGI.

So, what was your favourite of the above? What is the best bit? (And if you like, what is the worst bit?)
