Honestly, whether or not you'd like it depends just how much of a Doctor Who fan you are.

The old shows are filmed in a way different way, corny monster costumes at times, overacting and just a much slower feel to it. On the other hand, the Doctors themselves, the companions and the somewhat complex (for the times) storylines made them well worth watching. I grew up on them so I was used to the bad (it was normal for the times in shows like UFO, Space 1999, Battlestar Galactica etc) but I still will freely admit my favorite Doctors today are David Tennant and Tom Baker and my fave companions Sarah Jane, Ace and our current Clara Oswald.

Hi, I've closed this because individual personal help/advice threads aren't allowed in the discussion forums.

In most of the forums there are special threads for recommendations and help. If you are looking for additional advice about whether or not you should watch the original, please post here:

(I know you aren't asking for a recommendation in the standard way, but I'm sure folks will still be happy to let you know what they think)
