By god it is. Shame so many seem reluctant to appreciate it

Been watching a lot of the Holmes/Hinchcliffe classics recently (part dissertation research, part for own pleasure.)

Terror of the Autons
Pyramids of Mars
The Brain of Morbius
The Deadly Assassin

I love how fun Terror is and how genuinely horrific/hilarious the killer plastic scenes are and how The Master should be played.

I started watching Day of the Doctor last night but got about 45 mins in and turned it off. Never been the biggest fan but I thought it was passable before but I really disliked it last night. Hurt is the only good thing about it and his entire existence is one big contrivance. I found it as generally eyerollingly lame and irritating as most of the Moffat era this time. It's a shit anniversary story.
I did stick on The Crimson Horror then though, which is probably the best episode of series 7. Granted that's not saying much, but I do like it's decidedly uncharacteristic (for the new series) delight in gruesomeness and black comedy (Ada squashing Mr Sweet at the end is hilarious). Fun enough.

Return of Doctor Mysterio cheifly for editing purposes. It is so much better when you take out Mr. Huffle.

I tried watching Ghost Light on dailymotion but it was split into 8 episode parts and would skip a bit between parts. Sad

I still like Day of the Doctor, but I think it could have been better in the following ways.

Stick in the Night of the Doctor as the opening instead. I'm not sure about getting rid of the War Doctor as I do like the character, but I can see why people would have wanted McGann. Still this might be quite a good compromise.

Cut down the cringey bits with Queen Bess.

Maybe pick more impressive and memorable monsters for the 50th than the Zygons. I actually think more screen time should have been given to the Daleks as they are THE DW villains.

Also have more clips of old Doctors in the all Doctors save Gallifrey montage. They might have even been able to get them all in to do voice overs too.

Here is a mash up someone did of all the Doctors saving Gallifrey with more clips of the old Doctors. Its obviously rough because its just done by some guy in his house, but if the Beeb had done it and smoothed things over then it would have been better.

Saw the Loose Canon recon of Galaxy Four, wasn't as pacey as the abridged version on the DVD of The Aztecs special edition but it had more depth. The Dravhins are little more than female Dominators, though.

Any good places where I can watch some classic who online? As I said, the ones on dailymotion cut little bits out and my DVDs are stuck in one of the many boxes in the attic. I remember when Netflix had a bunch of classic who. Sad

The Colin Baker thread has me craving any of his stories and the latest episode of series 10 is making me crave either a good ghost story or just a more horror inspired story so any suggestions are welcome.

I haven't had time to watch the classic series for ages. Dying to watch Kinda, Snake Dance and Delta at some point. Not cos I think they are good or anything but just because I haven't seen them that many times.

Can honestly say I've never seen all three of them. They never really jumped out at me as ones to watch.
