A bit of trivia, Richard Dawkins is married to Lalla Ward who played Romana one of Tom Bakers companions.
An article from 1994 How We Met: Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward
Lalla Ward used to be married to Tom Baker too.
I started watching when I was about 16 years old (I'm 45 now). The public television station used to show it late on Saturday nights. I loved them. Tom Baker was my first and favorite Doctor.
I ended up going to a number of Doctor Who conventions and got to meet many of the Doctors and companions. (I used to dress up at Romana I, albiet a 17 year old Romana, LOL). It was great fun. I remember bumping into John Leeson (Voice of K-9) one night after most of the events ended for the evening. He was shocked that my group and I knew who he was. And he signed autographs for us, reading out loud what he was writing in his K-9 voice, LOL.
I watched till the end of Sylvetster McCoy (met him too, just last year) and then the movie (which wasn't HORRIBLE).
I have to say, I have always been a fanatical Cyberman fan. Just love 'em. Daleks are good too, but the Master was good fun as well. The new show is good too. I've liked all the new doctors as well.
