The first Who from 1988 that I encountered:  I watched Remembrance of the Daleks at some point in the wilderness years (and also bought it at the 2005 Worldcon).

My favourite Who from 1988: I really like The Happiness Patrol, and I have come around to the virtues of Remembrance of the Daleks. Among the books, Doctor Who – The Rescue is Ian Marter’s last and best.

Moving swiftly on from: the Pip-and-Jane-Baker novelisations.

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