I do. It's called Doctor Who. Be it wrapped in a TARDIS, a Battlestar, a starship... it's still soap opera when it comes down to it.
It's way too episodic for that. The stand-alone stories with largely no reoccurring characters are more prominent than any continuing arcs.
Bad Wolf
YANA--The Master
Doctor Donna
The Cracks in the Wall
River Song
The Silence

Yeah... no continuing arcs here...

Oh. Wait. Forgot one: the Impossible Girl...

And besides, more specifically, I was talking characters... But that's ok, there are arcs aplenty in nuWho.


Um, there's this thing called character arcs that you seem to be referring to.

Which are less prominent in the show than one-off stories.
