Well with the 50th anniversary this weekend I'm calling on my fellow Whovians here to talk about the older regenerations of The Doctor as well as the newer ones. Though this being a retro site try to keep it to the older ones. Personally my favorite actor to play the Doctor is Tom Baker he brought the most character in my eyes to The Doctor as well as humor. Sylvester Mccoy is a close second.

Well looky what I found.  I didn't know you were a Doctor Who fan!  I'm in the middle of watching all the older episodes.  I'm actually going to try to watch the whole series in order.  I'm in the middle of second season of the William Hartnell series.  You should check it out to see how this wonderful show began!  I'm also reviewing it on my blog if your interested.

I think it's great that some of us have a great appreciation for the Classic Who series. Most Doctor Who fans I know haven't watched the classic series, which is understandable. But yeah, if you are going to start with the Classic Who series, then I would suggest starting with the first episode, An Unearthly Child. The entire serial, not so much, as I found the caveman story to be a tad boring, but the first episode, and perhaps the beginning of the second provided a great introduction to the Doctor and his companions.

Me personally, I've been watching many episodes of the classic series in order, but not all of them. There are some that I'd skip over if it seems the episode themselves have no important significance, or if that story has episodes missing from the BBC. I don't know about you guys, but I honestly find still image reconstructions hard to follow along, although I would watch the animated reconstructions which I did with the final part of The Tenth Planet.

The reconstructions are really hard to watch and you really have to use a lot of imagination.  It's going to be rough when I get to the second Doctor serials because there is a lot of episodes missing there.  I watched the animated reconstructions in The Reign of Terror and thought they were pretty well done.

I know the series has been around for ages, but it only seems very recently that I hear so much about it. I guess it just recently went mainstream in the US. I'm not familiar with this series at all but I read how some of the early episodes were recorded over and lost forever which I thought was pretty interesting. Imagine finding a VHS recording of the missing episodes!

@vkimo  Yeah, if you ever found any lost episodes of Doctor Who,  BBC would make you very rich, very quick.

@DudeinTheHoodie  Yeah, I have varied tastes too.  I'm that way with everything: music, movies, etc. I even sometimes like those damn Lifetime movies my wife watches. (And let the jokes begin )

@ vkimo  Some of the stories on there is pretty good.  But my wife doesn't like science fiction or fantasy at all so I have to watch my shows alone.  It's depressing.......

Actually, I've noticed that a lot of women watch the new Doctor Who series however.  I think they are all in love with David Tennant.

Yeah, I think that's how a lot of them seem to be. Kind of makes me wonder how things will play out once Peter Capaldi's season starts airing. I mean, while I like the idea of using a Doctor who's younger to bring in a new generation of Who fans, I'm also glad they're going with somebody who's older again... and one who's doing it at the same age William Hartnell started playing the Doctor.
