I didn't know people liked Doctor Who a lot, I always thought it was just . It seems like it's just geared towards kids, it just doesn't interest me at all. All the DW advertisements come on when kids are watching, DW spin off shows are on CBBC, all interviews on Newsround etc
WHO is a kids show. i watched it as a kid years ago, and part of the reason i like it now (and the only reason i even gave the re-launch a chance), is nostalgia.

that said, WHO is really pretty good when taken on its own. part of that has to do with the fact that there really isn't any amazing scifi out there (such as B5 - and you thought this post had nothing to do with this thread); and part of it has to do with the fact that Tennant is just really really really good as a Doctor.

still, there is some classic WHO cheesiness that you just have to get over (e.g., the slaveen). but all in all, you can't really go wrong with a show that ends the season with (SPOILERS!) the sound of drums
