Re: Which Classical Who Era Would You Recommend?

I'd say start at the beginning of Tom Baker: it all exists in colour and as originally made, so there's no 'picture quality' issues that aren't also there for later stuff, and while his first story isn't one of the greats, you'll quickly hit some of the very best, as his first three seasons (12-14) are widely regarded as one of the most solidly decent runs in the series's history (when DWM did a poll of the first 200 stories back in 2009, 10 of the top 50 stories came from the first 18 Tom Baker stories*).
