I usually tell people to skip the first season of Doctor Who, Charles. Pretend it never existed!! Maybe even the first couple. It was just way to campy upon the early days of the reboot. It got better every season though, right to the current.
I realize it's not vital that I watch from the beginning, but I've already started, and it sounds like it can only give me a greater appreciation for what comes later, so I'll stick with it. I don't mind the actors, but yeah, total camp, and too loose with all of the ideas, no real rules to the world.
