Dr. Who?

I got hooked on the series during Tom Baker's run. I really like David Tennant's interpretation of the character. Old and new series; who's the best who?
 
I find that the new Dr Who series on the BBC rely too heavily on CGI. Also I'm sick of the BBC patting themselves on the back at every given opportunity regarding the new series.

Dont get me wrong they're not bad programmes but I much preferred the old Dr Who as at times I remember it to be quite scary as many a time I had to sit behind the sofa when it was on.

The enhanced CGI is in keeping with the times and technology, that's all. I know about the cheesy special effects that were a hallmark of the original, but they wanted to advance the concept.

So now we have an older Dr. Who, Peter Capaldi, with a darker personality.

Does this fit into the classic "Who" profile? Is the world ready for this newer approach?
