I know Doctor Who's popularity is at an all-time high, especially in the US. I just find the episodes of Moffat's run require more foreknolwdge of previous episodes than the episodes of RTD's did. Strictly IMO, of course.
RTD's final few episodes are incomprehensible if you haven't seen the previous 4 series and specials. All of Series 7A is entirely accessible to a new viewer.
