Earlier, I mentioned that Jon Pertwee was my favorite Doctor, and it got me thinking about my favorite episodes. Certainly some of the more recent Doctor Who tales have been excellent, but I still have a fond place in my heart for The Dæmons.
The Dæmons is the fifth and final serial of the eighth season of Doctor Who, and features science and magic going head to head as something evil is lurking in Devil’s End. The supernatural and pragmatism go head to head in this romp that ultimately features The Master. Paul Cornell, Martin Day, and Keith Topping have stated “The Dæmons isn’t really very good. Its denouement is risible, and even the much praised church explosion effect looks cheap.” Still, The Dæmons remains one of the more popular Doctor Who episodes of all time.
With that gauntlet being thrown down, it’s time for you to fire back. Use the comment section below and share with the rest of the world, your favorite Doctor Who episode, and feel free to go into detail why it ranks as your favorite episode of all time.
