I can't watch any of them older than the Baker ones - I've tried but the pace is just too slow for me. (And I used to study old tv, so I've watched a bit of the super old/slow content - but there's only so much I can intake.) I think I can rewatch the Baker era only because 1) nostalgia for first one I watched and 2) bad monster suits. I have to admit, this is a particular kind of show I like to watch while surfing the net during the bits that drag. I'm that way with some of the really slow MST movies too. I need to try more of the post Baker Doctors of the 80s and 90s - I only caught bits on those on PBS eons ago.
You need to watch The Green Death (it's a Pertwee one). Apparently the maggots were condoms filled with water.

Hahaha! I'm going to have to tell my brother that. He'll be so happy to learn...
Our PBS station in the 80s/early 90s showed the complete run of Tom Baker at least 5 or 6 times, and Pertwee/Davison about 3. Colin Baker I think once. I did see some Troughton and McCoy serials, but either on UNC-TV (McCoy), or Charlotte's independent PBS station (Troughton), rather than SCETV, as it didn't run either. (Troughton due to the episode survival thing. Not sure of reason on McCoy. But a lot of PBS stations didn't run McCoy episodes, I think.)

The Green Death is one of my favorite Pertwees. Green luminous condoms! (My first Doctor, Pertwee. My first episode was the introduction of The Master: Terror of the Autons. 1971, but seen by me in ... '74, I think. Dr. Who had just hit some US stations.)

Of the "classic" Doctors: I haven't seen enough of Hartnell to have an opinion. I am a fan of Troughton, Pertwee, and Tom Baker. Peter Davison presided over an era of such wasted opportunities. HATE Colin Baker. McCoy is very good.

I can still watch them because I grew up on them, I think. Also, love for wonky special effects.
