"most of those old 60s doctor who episodes seem to be loads of standing around blabbing then running around some boxes in the bbc basement."

Once you get past the "Childrens TV budget" level of effects, some of the stories are very good. But you really, really have to remember this was a "childrens" show and hence had a very, very small budget. You only have to look at the historical stories in the Hartnell era to see it was originally intended to be "edutainment" of some form (if that word had been invented back then)
