Day of the Daleks

So, I decided to start giving classic Doctor Who a try, because I am curious how the previous doctors were like, even if I don't like black and white movies/shows, I am still curious. I have watched a couple of Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee episodes so far, with one Peter Davidson and the movie McGann was in (I have already seen the 11th, 10th and 9th doctors).
It's just one thing that always on my mind, I have seen a few clips of the first three Doctors (Including renting Day of the Daleks at my video store) and I don't know if anyone ever feels like this, but it just seems so weird watching the three Doctors on the screen, considering they are all deceased, always happened with every actor/celebrity.. Well actually any photo, video, audio etc of any dead person anywhere in the world, especially if it's been more then five years and even longer. So it feels weird watching it, and I don't want to like the Doctors because what's the point? You will never meet them or see them on TV again, but it can't be helped (I am liking the Third Doctor, I just like the way he dresses, even if it looks weird haha, actually it's why I like the Fourth Doctor, for pulling off a scarf).
Does anyone ever feel like that? At the same time I want to update myself on the Doctor Who series, so I can see the origins of the Daleks, Cyberman, the Master etc. (I have seen all 12 Regeneration, and the way the 3rd is laid about, looks more eerie then the other two, basically because the 1st is just a two second clip, and the third is lying on the ground, when his companion closes his eyes).
I know this blog sounds almost morbid, it's just so weird seeing them on TV and hard to not think they are dead.
On a side note, I was looking at the lost episodes of Doctor Who, and the fact most of the episodes missing are from Patrick Troughton's era is kinda sad, if the last ones ever went missing it would be lost in the sands of time, and he would soon be forgotten. Just think of the technology then and now, now people like the actor who died from Fast and Furious (Ironically forgot his name sorry) or Heath Ledger all have a hundred ways and be extremely hard to end up forgotten, back then I imagine the clips and maybe some photos would be all that is left of the actor.
Yeah, I get weird when I am thinking about death. Okay blog over before I start getting more weird.
