I've tried many times to watch Doctor Who, and I have seen entire episodes, but I can't get into it. I especially hate the Daleks--their voices are absolutely annoying. What's more interesting is the "making of" part after each episode. Since it's shown on PBS, there are no commercials, so they use the last 15 minutes to show behind-the-scenes interviews and production. But there's still a kind of smugness about it.
The only Doctor Who I watched before this current incarnation was the one with Tom Baker, which was really campy, so maybe that's why it was more entertaining. Here's a radio interview with him, along with a bunch of images from when he was doing that show.
