Default Star Trek Fans and Doctor Who

From what I understand, both Star Trek and Doctor Who reference each other in many of their television series, and even inspired each other on several occasions. For example, in a Season 1 episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Riker asks for a Sonic Screwdriver. One of the most popular villains, known as the Borg, was inspired by the Cybermen. In Doctor Who, they will often reference Spock, Vulcans, transporters, etc.

My question is, as Star Trek fans, what do you think of Doctor Who? I watched a few episodes of the revival series (2005 onwards) on netflix the other day, and I found it hard to watch. Aside from the way it is shot (on video I believe), it felt too corny. Not saying that Star Trek isn't corny, or hasn't had its corny moments, but Doctor Who felt... strange.

I'm not bashing the show, as I have a huge amount of respect for it. Just wondering what other Star Trek fans think of it, and what episodes they would recommend watching. I'd like to give it another chance.
