One of the biggest mysteries of the Classic Show is the fate of the Sixth Doctor's companion Peri and whether she actually was killed at the end of 'Mindwarp' or not. 'Assassin' tackles that question in fantastic fashion with Six arriving to check on his companion who is now getting married to King Yrcanos but received in a less than welcome fashion especially as she feels that he left her behind to her less than stellar fate. For Classic Who fans, this one is really a treat as it tackles the mystery of Peri very well as well as set up her post 'Mindwarp' travels with the Doctor. It also gives us some strong dialogue and character growth for both Baker and Bryant, a weird setting and world with a literal half-sheep commander named Constable Woolsey, and some of the best comedy this side of 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'.

Three words: stained glass Daleks. That unique concept alone sold me on this story but 'Order' is also an amazingly fun if a little bit standard Dalek story. With Six and his audio-only companion Constance investigating a mysterious Brotherhood known simply as 'The Brotherhood of the Black Petal' with a link to the Daleks who are at their weakest and yet most dangerous, it gives us a unique medieval and yet science-fictiony setting along with some nasty ideas and tricks to give the Daleks a particularly gruesome edge to them. With good performances by both Colin Baker and Miranda Raison to help us along the way and enough ideas to keep you interested over the course of its 4 episodes, it may not stand out too much overall but its few unique ideas and strong characters give this one a little bit of an extra edge over other Dalek stories especially for the Sixth Doctor.

Easily the weirdest multi-Doctor story every made, this one sees the Sixth Doctor finally meet up with companion Melanie Bush for the first time (something we never really saw in the TV show) but in the wrong order. This is almost a New Series story in a Classic Series body as it has many of the same time tricks and plot elements that Davies and Moffat are so fond of but with Classic Who characters. Baker is easily to bounce off the other Doctor in this story (who I won't give away here) and it's interesting to finally get an explanation / first companion story for someone we might not have otherwise gotten to know that well. It's a little bit on the confusing and complicated side at times but it's definitely worth a listen for the great performances and it's place in the show's canon.

One of a trilogy of stories that take a deep delve in to character studies around popular villains, The Doctor and Davros are forced in to a working relationship together by a mysterious corporation who plan to use their expertise to improve their starliners for the future. This is really a Davros story that just happens to star the Sixth Doctor and Terry Malloy as Davros provides the definitive performance of the character that we have ever seen in any Doctor Who story. Nowadays, this one is kind of ripped off by some of the elements of the Twelfth Doctor story 'The Magician's Apprentice / The Witch's Familiar' but this is still a damn amazing one with amazing conversations and dialogue between Six and Davros, a secondary examination on capitalism, and a powerful examination on the relationship of two of the most extreme rivalries in the Doctor Who universe.
