Leave the worst 'til last! I give it 1 out of 10 as it has proper opening titles and the fact Tom Baker is in it, though it is the worst of his stories. Purchased only to complete the set, that's about all its worth.

One of the greatest Doctor Who stories

This story rocks!!!

I know why some people think it's one of the worst. The Bloodknock SFX, the Nimon heads, the overacting... but it all comes together to create a fantastic story. And it's got the lovely Janet Ellis in too!

Give this one a break

Alright, it isn't an "Inferno" or a "Seeds of Doom", but it remains, for me, one of the stories I remember most fondly from childhood. What child didn't cringe before the towering Nimon, bad costume or not!

I have never quite grasped as to why "The Horns of Nimon" is so hated that it shows up at the bottom of almost every list. The only conclusion I can come up with is that it has become so engrained into classic Dr. Who that season seventeen minus "City of Death" is the most atrocious season ever produced. With "Nimon" automatically put at the top of the list. I am by no means claiming that "Nimon" is a classic but I can think of several stories that are far worse.. The Web Planet? The Gunslingers? Most all of C. Baker and McCoy stories(not the actors themselves) are completely unwatchable to me. So being honest to those that have NOT yet had the chance to watch "Nimon" ,it isn't as bad as it is made out to be and if you want to watch all the Tom Baker stories I wouldn't get in any hurry for this or 'The Sunmakers". Depending on taste you may even find it to be a fun watch.
