I don't think I plan on watching the original either. Way too much other shit that appeals to me more.
dr. who was/is the brits' star trek. and just like with star trek series, some dr.'s have been better than others. the ones from the 80's are probably the weakest, but the original black and white ones from the 1960's with hartnell are great, as were the four that followed, with the best being the late 1970's tom baker one in my opinion. the new one is good, tennent, eccleston, but they've really turned jumping the shark into an artform in the most recent incarnation with matt smith.
