    A lot of Doctor Who is cheesy CGI monsters and some older episodes have dated cultural references.

    If you don’t mind that then start at S1 of the new series which released in 2005.

    My favourite Doctors are the 9th Doctor (S1), 10th Doctor (S2-4) and the 12th Doctor (S8-10)

    everyone i know that watches this coincidentally was a super numale reddit male or a mlp/tranime female with some lgbt identity. and or overweight. the also liked homestuck. i would say the hard cutoff should be somewhere in the 2010s but things before it probably aren’t that bad. sounds like stargate in the episodic adventure sense

    It certainly is. While all Doctors are good (some great stories, others not so great, but is rare to get something terrible) which Doctor you think of as best of worst is down to your personal tastes, It is best to go by scriptwriters on individual episodes of serials.

    A good rule of thumb is anything by Terry Nation or Terence Dicks is FRICKING KINO.

    The Sylvester McCoy era though is amazing. You know what the best selling fantasy Sci-fi series released in the last 10 years is in the UK? It's River's of London. It is written by Ben Aaranovich, who wrote 2 of the 7th Doctor and Ace's adventures, and his co-worker on the rivers of London graphic novels is the 7th Doctor's script editor Andrew Cartmel. It's not just Arranovich's episodes that make the 7th Doctor's episodes so awesome it is chock full of them. Delta and the Bannermen has gone on to inspire about a million Sci-fi since, and has a cameo by Ken Dodd, while the Happiness Patrol took the loss out of Margaret Thatcher (a bold move that sadly got the series cancelled) but also managed to make an evil budget version of Bertie Basset actually genuinely scary and sinister.

    With the Nu-Who (9th Doctor onwards) it is best to watch them in order, because of plot, but just skip an episode of you really aren't feeling it.

    You should probably skip "fear her" and most of Chib-smell's episodes of they are not the flux series (turned out he can write some halfway decent stuff) or don't involve Captain Jack, The Master, or the Fugitive Doctor.

    >Where should I start
    it's an anthology show. start wherever you want but if you really want to watch in order start with season 7. season 1 to 6 are harder to watch.

    the worst ones are the NuWho ones.

            Correct. BBC had a bad habit of reusing beta tapes so some episodes were literally just recorded over and there was also a big fire at one of the warehouses in the 70's. Several BBC shows of that time have missing episodes.

              It wasn't a bad habit so much as an entirely accepted and reasonable standard operating practice. 1960s Doctor Who (and indeed British television as a whole) was produced in the expectation and understanding that there was practically zero chance of the programme in question ever being seen again, outside of foreign countries as part of broadcasting deals. This is because:
              >home video wouldn't be a thing until the 1980s
              >repeats on British TV were incredibly rare, owing to various Equity (the actors' union) rules over repeat broadcasting
              >on the chance there was an outside party who wanted to screen an old story (i.e, a fan club), they'd have to have the showing signed off on by all the actors involved in the original programme
              And, in addition to that:
              >videotape was pretty expensive
              >videotape could be reused, unlike film tape
              >the physical limitations of storage meant the BBC couldn't just keep a copy of everything they produced
              >so it was far more sensible to wipe their tapes and reuse them after a set period of time, rather than buying new videotape for each programme
              Wiping tapes was an entirely reasonable thing for the BBC to do, at the time.

              Where it DOES turn into a bad habit is by the mid 1970s, around the same time people began wanting to actually preserve television history. For whatever inscrutable bureaucratic reason, archive videotapes was somehow the shared responsibility of two different departments within the BBC, and both departments were under the assumption that it was the OTHER one which was in charge of programme preservation. So the default policy the BBC ended up with for when an archival tape came under audit was to junk it, under the false assumption that there would be a copy of the programme somewhere else. This went on until the end of the decade, when a new manager for the department(s) checked out what was actually extant in the archives, and then immediately ordered this mad automatic junking policy stopped.

                to complement your story, the real reason the policy stopped was this: at some point in the mid 1970s a BBC cultural documentary show produced an episode about Doctor Who, and some prominent fans were involved. the same show also requested to use extracts from past stories (remember reruns were virtually inexistant). those fans thus learned for the first time ever which department of the BBC actually keep the tapes. after the documentary wrapped up, those fans went back to the BBC sales department and asked to buy a copy of one episode. that copy was aired in one of the first ever fan conventions, the word spread, and more and more fans (including Ian Levine) showed up at the BBC sales office asking to buy some specific episodes. but some times they were told the episode no longer exist. for the first time the internal practice of the BBC was exposed outside, because people realised hours of programs (and not just Doctor Who) had disappeared. the BBC reacted by asking the sales department to stop all destructions and very soon reorganised their entire archival system.
                all thanks to some DW nerds, because the production offices themselves didn't care.

            it's more complicated than that (and there had been no fire).
            obviously there was no home video and nobody even expected there would be in the future. but in fact the BBC almost never reran any show, because the unions (which were mostly coming from theatre) thought it was denying them work. hence there was no real need to keep old programs, except for oversea sales. the sales department did keep copies in middle-term storage, but once a program had been sold it was marked for destruction, and then randomly destroyed to make room for newer programs.

        stfu. nuwho was pretty decent up until the female doctor.
        i can't comment on or compare to oldwho since i haven't watched it. there are limits to how shitty a picture quality i will tolerate, and oldwho is way past that limit. in the future, if there's ever a decent upscaling project, maybe.

    Start with either Season 7 of the Classic series or Series 1 of the 2005 reboot. Don't bother with anything after the Series 10 finale.

      In ten years we will be able to fix the entire Whittaker era with AI. If anyone complains about the Doctor becoming H-cup we'll have her make out with Yaz for twenty minutes in the finale to stop them complaining.

      Depends how you look at Capaldi.
      Capaldi as just another Doctor? Yeah, he gets fricked over.
      Capaldi as what should've been the epilogue to the show? It's pretty good.
      Unfortunately one's more fact and the other is the cope we all hold.

          On the upside, he did get Missy and Heaven Sent.

          He reminds me a lot of Colin Baker. A bunch of bad scripts, but every now and then you'd see them both pour their soul into a scene.

    Rewatched Remembrance of the Daleks yesterday. I remember having the original serial on 2 VCRs when I was a kid and watching it 5-6 times. I may be super nostalgic, but I think it holds up.

    The story manages to throw a bunch of factions at you and still weave them into a cohesive story. Both Ace and the Doctor are a joy to watch. Some surprisingly good stunts and practical effects.

      wasn't it weird to watch it without having seen the previous Dalek civil war stories first?

        NTA, but not really.
        Obviously it's the final instalment of a trilogy in the grand scheme of things, but all a viewer really needs to know is "two different groups of Daleks are having it out at each other" and the story works just fine without any prior knowledge.

        I was a little kid, so I didn't really mind. They explain it fairly succinctly in-episode anyway.

        Also, wasn't the Dalek civil war one of the 2nd Doctor's lost serials? It might have been even weirder had I of somehow seen it.

    Classic Who is generally okay. 25 year run so obviously there are some ups and downs and some really dated visual effects.
    Series 1-5 of the revived series is generally considered to be good. Series 6 is where Moffatt really takes control of the show and his style does not sit well with everybody. Capaldi's first season (8?) is the last one I watched so I can't speak for anything after.
    If you don't care about continuity and just wanna check out some random episodes, then may I suggest:
    The Claws of Axis
    Horror of Fang Rock
    City of Death
    Tooth & Claw
    The Eleventh Hour

    I really liked Doctor Who for a while but every time I rewatched it I liked it less until the last time when I didn't even like my favorite episodes anymore.

    You don't need to watch in any order really. In the old version of the show narrative arcs were never more than a few episodes long. Past continuity is rarely referenced and when it is it's easy to figure out even if you haven't seen the previous stories. 60's Who can be frustrating to watch though because of all the missing episodes.

    It wasn't until the 2005 reboot that the showrunners became obsessed with continuity and the show became more episodic. Those seasons (2005-present) should be watched in release order. You don't need to watch the old version to understand the reboot although past characters are referenced semi-often.

    NuWho is safer, you could just watch that from the start and stop when you start hating it. For OldWho best thing to do is pick a villain you are interested in and look up what episodes they're in and watch some of those
