Quite some time ago, I posted a video about the 51 episodes of Doctor Who that I love the most. I’ve always had it in the back of my mind to do a quick analysis of my choices. Today, that idea has gone from the back of my mind to the front of my mind to my fingers to this blogpost and now soon, into your brain. After that, who knows?

A while ago I did a post where I ranked how successful each Doctor Who producer was at farewelling the show’s companions. At the time, I said that the only person whose specific ranking could still feasibly change was Chris Chibnall, as he was still running the show and was likely to still write out one or two companions.
