Maybe it's the accents? I watch so much American TV (especially sci-fi), it's weird to hear people in space, often in the distant future, who could live down the road.
I would reckon that's part of the appeal of the series.

I only recently watched my first full episode on SyFy (fortunately, they offer the original undubbed version via second audio program on cable). It was pretty funny actually. Google says it was "Amy's Choice" from season 5.

I'm currently dragging my feet through the first season of the new Who. Classic Who was easy to watch but the newer version isn't grabbing me yet. Hearing comments like that does help me struggle through it though.

My wife is a huge fan, but Doctor Who never has really grabbed me in the way Star Trek has. I went with her to see "The Rise of the Cybermen" on the big screen. Thought it was okay, but nothing about it made me want to watch more.

I watched it off and on as a kid on PBS, mostly the Tom Baker and Peter Davison episodes. A year or so ago I tried to start from the beginning with the intention of watching all the episodes, at least all of the existing ones. I finished the first season, but I just couldn't do anymore.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

I used to be quite upset about the Abrams films dispatching with 50 years of canon. But really, the canon is irrelevant. The prime timeline is not coming back . At least not on screen. If you want your fix of the prime timeline, read the novels.

It would be like them hiring Pierce Brosnan for the next Bond movie. He's had his time. Or bringing back Adam West and the tone of the 60s series for the next Batman movie.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Why not both? You can have Prime on TV or in animation, and Nu on the big screen. Worked for Superman. What with Smallville on television, and Superman Returns, co-existing at the same time.
