The UK TV channel Horror Channel has been showing alot of Classic Dr Who. I don't know if you can access it where you are.

What I understand is there is very little of Wilfred Hartnell's Doctor Who in the archives. BBC was not optimistic in the beginning. The sets suffered the same problems as in Star Treck; too much flimsy cardboard. Also it was very static and the special effects were very primitive. It was in 16 shades of grey as well which did not make good viewing.

Thanks for vote of confidence and yes I have seen it, respectively checked before posting.

Dr. Who Seasons 1-5 Including specials V3nDetta

I found the first three seasons and several of the specials uploaded by another uploader. I also found season 4 and 5 uploaded by another person. I individually downloaded two other specials and added them all together into one file.

Thanks for the details, I'm not into this torrent stuff but a friend might be able to help.

It was a kids show. There was little incentive to archive it, it was just not seen as important.

What a name for a site; Daily Motion. Yep I do that every morning.

Nice collection of early Dr Who. Quality is pathetic though. Those were not BBC recordings.

That would appear to be the new version of Dr Who and not the classic episodes that Agi was asking about - the giveaway bit being 'including specials'

I see, I am not familiar with old/new versions, how about this?

Doctor Who 1963-1989

or this?

Doctor Who - 1st Doctor - William Hartnell - 1963/1967

If its popular its very likely to be on torrent but Agi does not want file sharing.

The whole thing was pretty primitive compared to today's version which I never watch. There is an article on the BBC site somewhere how the special effects were created. It was truly amazing. As I said earlier many parallels with Star Trek.

I wonder if any one remember Blake's 7? It also suffered from early sci-fi film making.

I love Blake's 7. You're right that it suffered from very limited special effects, especially given the vision behind the series. Still, they had very original designs such as the Liberator (and the bridge of the Liberator set was pretty epic for its time) and it was dystopian sci-fi at its very best in terms of story-telling.

Paul Darrow as Kerr Avon is one of the all time great performances of sci-fi.

Recently re-watched the whole thing on YouTube, except for the very last episode of the final season (where they all get shot I think except possibly Avon). Was really, really young when I watched it originally. Some of the episodes are quite good, others really show their age and (pressumably) low budget. Didn't bother me back then. Have always liked the opening tune, still do.

And to post something on the originaltopic: it has crossed mind a lot recently that I'd love to watch the complete Dr. Who series. I've seen only a few seasons of it, mostly the ones that were broadcoast on Dutch television and perhaps one or two seasons on BBC. I did watch the latest season when it aired on BBC First. Don't have much time to watch television though these days and when I do it's with the misses and she certainly isn't into something like Dr. Who.

Oh I loved it. Missed series 4 as I returned here and at that time the cable had not been invented. We had a communal aerial.
