Like many people my age, I grew up watching Doctor Who of the 1970s Pertwee/Baker era and beyond, so the new series is a continuation of a long running story. For many though, they only know the new incarnation that has existed since 2005 and may be engaging with it on face value, without any baggage. These two statements may, or may not be serious factors in my problem with Doctor Who as it stands now.
If I were to sum up my key issues, they would be narrative, structure, logic, dialogue, originality and characterisation.
However, a key question before I get into all that is, ‘but is this programme even FOR me?’
