The third and final in my series of "Doctor Who enemy" polls and this time we return to the innocent, pioneering days of television with our two coldest villains in Yeti and Ice Warrior stories. Which is your favourite?

I have to admit that the Troughton era is my favourite. Due to Pat's acting, it hasn't dated quite as badly as it may have and it still has a freshness and lightness that was lost as the show went to colour. Trust the BBC to destroy so many episodes from this period.

It is naive today but it worked well as a children's show and was not yet on its spiral into increasing campness that started with Pertwee's frilly shirts and continues to this day...

What Troughton is on DVD? I am aware of the Mind Robbers, The Invasion, Tomb of the Cybermen and Seeds of Death. Have any others been released? Are any due to come out soon?

Thanks.

Thats it so far , there`s only so much you can release and I expect either the Dominators or The Krotons to be next - although The war Games box set may be a surprise!

The Seeds of Death - Slaaar's a wonderful villain and the chase sequence is a corker. Fewsham is an especially good character, who elicits genuine sympathy.

Abominable Snowmen comes second. Very spooky and I love the setting.
