I hear you there. I have been out of touch with Doctor Who for a good many years and only having seen the first of the new seasons because the Fox reboot from the 1990s was so off-putting. I've been catching the back and forth from the fans, saying their peace about the good and the bad about the changes. Me ... I liked the first new series they did. It felt like it was fun like the original series was.
Hopefully this one will be worth it.
