Not a series that I have ever been able to get into.  I have yet to figure out why it is so beloved.

So ... like a fungus ... it grows on you until you become part of the organism.

it's like star wars or trek. if you watched it growing up, it's probably stuck with you. without that attachment, it's probably harder to get into. Who's been around for over 50yrs now... big fan base due to longevity if nothing else.

we bought the new season on appletv but have yet to watch the premier. was able to get my wife hooked on it during tennant's run and then with smith, tho we both fell away for capaldi. cautiously optimistic for the new season.
"There is a scene in Star Wars where the heroes are in a trash compactor on the Death Star with the walls closing in. I'm reminded of that this morning, except for perhaps the stuff about the heroes."

I found the first two episodes enjoyable but it deteriorated after that.
Not so much because of the new Doctor, but the plots were just... off.

Ditto.

I never watched Dr Who before this season - so I can't compare it against any other season or Doctor - but I have a good friend that has watched forever. Thought I'd give it a go this season and like Silverthorn, quite enjoyed the first couple of episodes and hoping the last couple were just a dip blip and it gets back on track this week.
