The only episodes I've seen are some of the Tom Baker ones, and I didn't care for it.  Granted it might have been because I was watching 70's production values, but the impression stuck.

This should be helpful as well.

^ Thanks man!

A simple test is to watch 1975's 'Genesis of the Daleks'.

The Doctor is sent back in time to kill Space-Hitler (Davros) and prevent him from  creating the Space-Nazis (Daleks). If you don't enjoy that story and can't see past the low production values, to the great writing/acting beneath, then you aren't going to like the rest of it and probably shouldn't waste your time.

EDIT: Or watch the 1970 serial 'Spearhead from Space'. It was the only classic story shot entirely on film and so is the only one now available on blu-ray. It looks a lot better production values wise.

To be fair to myself, I was probably seven or eight years old at the time.

I'm primarily a fan of the modern series - one day I'll get around to continuing the classics.  Matt Smith is my Doctor, but Hartnell's all kinds of underrated.  Much like Capaldi, he started grumpy, but as he interacted more and more with humans, he mellowed considerably. 

His line flubbing is a charming, if unintentional quirk.

agreed. I, too, would be interested in watching a lesbian super-spy who's a womanizer.

*sigh* I could easily just keep this to myself, but fuck it

Super-personal-spoopy-SJW-attackhelicopter-narrative incoming:

I'm about to start my transition into being a woman after living as a man for over two decades.
This could not have happened at a more perfect time for someone like me.

The finale of this season reeked of dysphoric undertones, so a female doctor wasn't at all a surprise to me.

To argue against the idea that a fictional character in a TV show could be genderfluid, when so many people in our society already are, I would argue is more damaging than it would be to these strawboys having their favourite action figure taken away from them.

Besides, we've already seen Time Lords not only change gender but change race and physical age. This isn't even the first time The Doctor has been a woman! Joanna Lumley did it decades ago!

Again, sorry for the personal shit, but this is a personal topic to me. I grew up watching the Tom Baker Who, then continued in with the 2005 reboot. I'm absolutely in love with the show. Other people watch the show than white, straight, cisgender males. Why are their feelings more important than ours?
