    After months and months of research, the data has been collated and it's time to begin the countdown of the greatest Doctor Who episodes (2005-)

    But before we get to the giddy heights of the top 10, there will be some trash to wade through first. So on we go with the WORST ever episode


    87. Fear Her

    6.4/20

    When the Tardis lands in 2012, the Doctor plans to show Rose the London Olympics. But on a nearby housing estate, a desperate mother is hiding her daughter's unearthly powers. Can the Doctor defeat the danger nestling at the heart of an ordinary British household?

    Not a major surprise, but this was the first episode of Doctor Who I ever saw and it was enough to make me want to watch more. So it can't be THAT bad, can it? A creepy voice. Doctor lighting the olympic flame. I don't really mind this one.

    Lowest score - 2
    Highest score - 12

    Plan to do it daily. There are some "draws" so it won't take 87 days :)

    I just rewatched the episode, and I really don't get the hatred for it. There are so many other episodes that I find a lot less watchable.

    But this was also voted the worst Nu Who episode in a Doctor Who Magazine poll, so it's not just you guys that hate it.

    More than I'd thought. Less than I'd hoped for.

    I guess giving a straight answer is too difficult for some people.

    Well I'm glad we're going to get the Doctor Who episodes ranked according to the average opinion of the 11 most respected TV and film critics (I assume) on a dying Star Wars message board. I for one eagerly await citing the results of this study in future Doctor Who discussions.

    IJG... even in the accepted JCC climate of pulling things down for the sake of it, you've just pushed the envelope.

    Anyway, at least Love & Monsters is still in the running for top spot.

    Sure.

    I seriously despised this episode. Absolutely terrible and, like most live-action programs I hate, it relied on a child actor who was incapable of actually acting. See also Star Wars Episode I.

    I'll comment. It's an abomination unto the name of Who, a slur on the record of a great franchise and an episode that should be rightly looked down upon by the most low budget of low budget classic Who episodes.

    That said, it is a bit like Penny Crayon. I think that's probably why I gave it any marks at all.

    I'll repeat what I've already said elsewhere: The only single good thing about "Fear Her" is the Schrödinger's Cat joke.
