Yes, it's Series Three!
And while it may seem superfluous having separate favourite and least favourite for the companions, given there are only two, I've gone ahead and done it anyway!

If pushed, I couldn't actually pick a single favourite between "Blink" and "Human Nature". I think the former is a remarkable feat of sleight of hand, but I think that the latter has much more depth and actually makes for a better Doctor Who story.

I think Martha was a character they wrote pretty badly for the first half of the season, then I warmed to her and was actually a little sad to see her go. Jack Harkness... no, I could never give a positive vote for that character. Sigh...

Sadly, Martha annoyed me for most of the season, with all her pining after the Doctor. It was too soon after Rose. I think a much nicer way to handle it, if they felt they had to go that route, was to let Martha seem like an ordinary companion, albeit one who is fond of the Doctor, and then have it come out in Human Nature.

I liked Jack, but mostly because he was actually a much more enjoyable character to watch than he'd been on Torchwood. But even so, I didn't vote for either as a favourite.

Hey y'ol bastard! Can't find your email on such short notice -- but I'm flying down to Canberra for the day tomorrow. Wanna do lunch? I've got a DVD of Chances you can borrow, to sweeten the deal!

I wonder how much of a difference it made to the poll results that you made "Utopia / The Sound of Drums / Last of the Time Lords" a single option instead of listing Utopia separately...

I almost spilt them, but it is essentially all the one story, so it would be unfair to let part one off the hook of being dragged down by parts two and three, given that other stories didn't get that treatment.

Plus to judge a story fairly, it has be judged as a whole.
