For you Whovians out there, which episodes do you guys recommend me? I want to give the series a try but I don't think I'm going to watch all of them.
No point watching all of them. The series started decades ago.
I just did research on Doctor Who. It turns out that several episodes from the original series ended up missing because of bad storage placement. I guess I'll watch the current series starting with season 1 to see how it plays off.
A lot of television programs from back then don't exist anymore. There was no real archiving, and they just taped over a lot of things. Things like first ten years of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson are completely gone. Once in a while something will turn up, but the condition is often poor due to less than ideal storage conditions.
Seven episodes with William Hartnell have just been recovered.
