Actually, the effects and acting in the new series are just as bad as the old. It wouldn't be Dr Who otherwisePralix said:I doubt they will pick up the old series. People's taste in science fiction has changed. Everyone is used to flash special effects. The old series just doesn't have that. I think the Sci-Fi channel had the old series in it's infancy but it seems they have "grown" too much to show it now. They used to show all kinds of old TV shows, but now there might only be a handful.
