I've actually been watching from the beginning, even the "Loose Cannon" reconstructions for the missing episodes. I'm around April of '72,
The first 2 doctors were interesting for the cheesy effects and acting and obvious attempts to keep it relatively non-violent, having started as a children's program.
I'm having a really hard time getting past this 3rd doctor/(almost) always on Earth/random new monster shows up and is battled by the navy/"The Master" is always behind it, however.

I don't care if it is the "spirits of the dead" or some other unknown cause, but things do occur that match the traditional story of ghosts.

My best friend for most of my life (I'm 47), the 2nd most intelligent person I know in my peer group, always completely rational, sane and scientific, once in confidence told me of clearly hearing his dead uncle's voice telling him how proud he was of him. At the time, I chalked it up to auditory illusion, then:

In college, my roommate and I went jogging one night. He is the 3rd most intelligent person in my peer group. We heard a female heavy breathing and foot-falls behind us, catching up. He even pulled forward and ahead of me to allow her to pass. She sounded out of breath and labored. Suddenly, it stopped. We simultaneously stopped to look back. There was no one there and nowhere for her to disappear to. He even said "weird!" I doubt it was a simultaneous illusion, We had not been drinking or drugging.

And before someone makes a smart-ass remark, I don't count myself as 1st most intelligent.

Many totally tech capable people (raises hand to indicate self) may be technically adept, building their own 'puters, posting to /., etc. etc., yet don't own a cell 'phone, much less one capable of text messaging because they hate them. Every 'phone I own has a cord to the wall. Does that mean I'm no longer allowed to send mail?

Your app is signed with an expired certificate from Microsoft though it is coming from Australia. Enabling appropriate security restrictions and trying to run it anyway creates a bomb with a security exception. It may be clever and fun, but no one is going to run that.

Actually, after being introduced via Torchwood, I've been trying to watch the entire series in order (including the "Loose Cannon" reconstructions for the fully lost episodes). I'm up to March, 1970. The 1st 2 Doctors aren't that bad, but when the 3rd is trapped on Earth in present day and every show starts being the same, I'd have to agree. Can't comment yet past that.
