So, I just noticed this morning that iTunes is now carrying what appears to be all available seasons of Doctor Who for sale/download.

I'd never watched any Doctor Who before RTD took over; I was a HUGE Queer as Folk fan, and when the creator of that moved over to Doctor Who, I thought I would try it out. Of course, I loved it.

Every now and again, I'd wander through HMV or Best Buy and look at the old seasons for sale, but the prices for the BBC releases were ridiculous - I wasn't about to pay $30 or $40 for 4 half-hour episodes. The iTunes releases, though are a lot more reasonable - $6 for the 4-episode seasons.

So, now I'm thinking I'll buy some old-school Doctor Who.

Which doctor should I start with? Go back to the very beginning and get the William Hartnell Series? Just start with the Tom Baker Ones? Which Doctor had Sarah Jane as a Companion?

Who's your favorite old-school Doctor?

(As a separate question, has anyone downloaded TV episodes off iTunes? What's the quality like? I'll be hooking my laptop up to the TV to watch them; is the quality good enough for that, or do they just sell the lower quality stuff optimized for watching on an iPod?)

Ooooh! I wonder how much it would cost to buy all of the old Doctor Who. I've been thinking about this recently too, but the cost has been putting me off.

Personally, I would probably start from the beginning, but I'm a completist that way.
