Does anyone else here love Doctor Who? If so let it be discussed, classic series or current It matters not. If it's about the Doctor let it be shared here.

got hooked on Dr Who when I was in college in the 80's. Lots of Tom Baker, Jon Pertwee, a bit of Pat Troughton.

At the end of the '80's, the local Chicago PBS station played ALL of the surviving episodes (some of the early ones had been scrapped for silver content). Took a couple of years of late Sunday nights.

I watched nearly all of them. Won't admit to staying awake tho, the first several years were pretty rough.

I also got into Dr. Who in the 80's watching the older episodes in black and white up to the (then) present episodes. The effects were real low-tech and the emphasis was on a plausible sci-fi story. The reverse seems to be true of the newer episodes, I watch most of them but sometimes I long for 'the goodle days' of the 60's episodes with the Brigadier et. al.

I've regularly enjoyed the show since I was in my teens. Don't claim to be an expert. Just enjoy watching.

I loved Tom Baker.

David Tennant is my favorite. Almost enough motivation to purchase BBC America.

Netflix has plenty of the the latest (9th almost to date) as well as a selection of Doctors #1 to #7.

Indeed, I haven't liked many of the "modern" story lines. Too grandiose, too many holes that need filling in. Nearly always forgettable.

Sure, tin foil and celluloid of older episodes was cheesy, but it was almost like old-time radio - you had to think and use some imagination. Weeping Angels episode was "old style". Very effective, maybe best episode ever.
