I will debate the following DW topics from the Pro position, Con can choose any of them-

Sylvester McCoy is the best Doctor
Season 26 is the best in the show's history
Series one is the worst season in the show's history
Ace McShane is the best companion
Handles is the best companion
The Time Lords coming back was a smart move from Moffat

And JNT was the best showrunner


First round for acceptance and naming the topic only.

I will release my inner nerd (partially outer) and accept this debate.
I will be debating that Ace McShane is not the best companion and state that Amy Pond is the best companion.

Sorry abut that, my computer broke and I just regained internet access.

Ace McShane was a great companion for the following reasons

1. She followed a companion most consider awful. While I personally don't mind Mel, she is widely considered one of the worst companions, while Ace is considered one of the best.
2. She spared interest back into the show. If you go on a forum or message bard, and are trying to get into Classic Who, people will tell you the essential episodes for each Doctor. These are normally every regeneration episode, Aztecs, Mind Robber, Tomb of the Cybermen, Spearhead from Space, Inferno, quite a bit of Tom Baker, Earthshock, Caves of Androzani, Two Docstor, Vengeance on Varos, and Trial of a Time Lord. Something interesting happens when you hit Sylvester McCoy, though. The majority of times, people are told to watch all of seasons 25 and 26. These seasons are considered some of the best Who of all time, and with good reason. Not only does McCoy's Doctor become a much more interesting character, but Ace is shown to be an excellent companion.

Alright. I'll have my argument by tomorrow.

It's fine, I was thinking of debating both handles and Ace Mcshane at once, saying that Pond is better, but that would make a paradox (hehe) because you can't think that both are the best at once. Just stick with the Ace Mcshane one.

Reasons for voting decision: Both missed a single round. Pro's argument ended up being in the final round where new points are discounted; however con did not make an argument (he made a single assertion, without so much as a picture to support it). Thus I have to call this a tie.
