the old Doctor Who wasn't particularly good.

Opinion invalidated.

Additionally, the fans of that show are such a vanishingly small group of people that they can be safely ignored, for the most part.
Hahaha, what? New Who has consistently milked its classic roots for publicity with the general public whether it be the return of the Daleks, Cybermen, Sarah-Jane, K9, Master, Sontarans, Davros, Silurians, Rassilon, Time Lords, Great Intelligence etc.

It is one of the most beloved shows by the British public and even the lesser thought of Colin and Sylv eras will be remembered long after the vile Top Gear is forgotten.

One of the reasons New Who hasn't alienated its fandom as much as JJ Abrams Trek has is that it has almost always gone out of its way to maintain continuity with and show respect the old show. There's no patronising "This isn't your daddy's Doctor Who!" attitude. The people making the show clearly love the classic series.
