Hey, it's a discussion forum! I had some more thoughts. Full disclosure - I rate myself as somewhere between a casual and hardcore fan, maybe out of 10 a 7.5. I grew up with Pertwee and then Baker, and I suppose the Baker years are my years. Star Wars, Punk Rock, 2000AD and Doctor Who. When Baker left I lost interest and didn't like the actors they had after him and some of those shows are really bad. Anyway, got back into the rebirth with Ecclestone. Liked him a lot and then Tennant even more, for a while it was essential viewing. Smith was OK but not a fan of Capaldi. The point is I'm not just an old school guy, I do like the new Doctors as well. And unlike The Walking Dead (which is pretty much the same creative team) they do swap things around. New Doctors, new writers etc. So while you can give up on the Walking Dead as it isn't going to change much at all (and they have pretty much ran out of ideas) I can't just give up on the Doctor as we may get a great creative team back on the show with a decent cast and good stories. So you have to check out the new incarnation and on a forum like this I think it's allowed to give your opinion. It's like the BBC are not the owners anymore, the fans are, and the BBC are now just the custodians of the property and we shouldn't weakly just accept what they give us at this point. If it's poor then we have a right to demand better. That is a perfectly acceptable position and you have no right to say 'stop moaning and watch something else'. That is a weak argument. We have the right to demand better.
