Season 3 as it has 10 stories worth of content, Daleks' Master Plan, and many stories that intrigue me. I've listened to The Ark, The Gunfighters, and The War Machines on audio and enjoyed them so I think the rest of the season will be good.

I'd most like Season Five complete. I consider that Season to be the strongest of the 1960's, and one of the very best in the entire Doctor Who series (classic and new). 'Tomb of the Cybermen' is one of my all time favourite stories, and it was a miracle this classic resurfaced in 1992! 'The Abominable Snowmen' would benefit from seeing it, rather than listen to it. But the surviving episode 2 looks decent. 'The Ice Warriors' is very good and fairly underrated I feel. I always regarded 'The Enemy of the World' as underrated before it was recovered in full, just from the audio alone. What a gem 'The Enemy of the World' turned out to be, and a really significant recovery in my view, especially as it features the brilliant Patrick Troughton in dual roles! 'The Web of Fear' was already my favourite audio soundtrack of a missing story before it finally returned (minus episode 3), and it is superb. Whilst it would be nice to also have episode 3 back, just to complete another Troughton story, I don't think it's recovery would change or alter any of our overall opinions of 'The Web of Fear'. 'Fury from the Deep' however I find a real chore to listen to. I'm not trying to say it's bad, not at all, but it would really benefit from being able to see all of it, or at least some episodes of it. I have a sneaky feeling it is something of a 'lost' classic. 'The Wheel in Space' seems to get a lot of bad press (well, in Doctor Who reviews anyway), but I've always enjoyed the audio, and surviving episodes 3 and 6 are very good indeed. Seriously, it's a David Whitaker script, it can't be all that bad. I'm sure if people got to see the whole story, then it would be re-appraised. Plus, Season Five is book ended by the brilliant 'The Evil of the Daleks', so I would include that as part of my Season recovery wish list. A cheeky bonus.
