I don't remember which story the Seventh Doctor has on streaming, just that it's not one of the better ones.
Isn't "Remembrance of the Daleks" available? I'd say that's the absolute best of McCoy's stories!

As to the pacing issue, I agree classic Who can take some adjusting to get used to. Actually, I'd say the fastest paced story they ever did was "The Five Doctors," largely because the entire story is spent crosscutting between 4-6 different character groups, so there's not as much time to belabor the point the way they usually do.
