Its funny how things change over time. 5 years ago Doctor who fans rejoiced that their favorite show was coming back. We thought it deserved to come back. That it NEEDED to come back. We complained about the BBC not bringing it back. We got it and we were happy. We were on top again. We had our show. But of course that happyness couldn't last forever.
Doctor who fans like to complain. We are critical of what is given to us. I suppose that tells you something about our mentality. I think the new series is GREAT, but that doesn't stop me from complaining about things that don't make sense, like Tinkerbell Doctor. You have to ask your self what you would rather have. No new Who, or the occasional story that you don't really buy. For the most part the new series of doctor who has been Great, and worthy of the mantle, often times completely going beyond classic who.
We have just recently been introduced to Season 5 and Matt Smith. Of course as is expected there are those of us who are being overly critical. I am one of those. I have been analyzing these new episodes more than I ever have any other story. It becomes cumbersome and I tend to just sit back and enjoy the story. I have loved the past two episodes and I believe they are fantastic stories, but I have had some criticisms, but I hope those criticisms will come to a close once an over arching plot it pulled together.
Doctor Who fans are unique. We are the fandom that likes to look a gift horse in the mouth. I often have to remind myself of those Wilderness years, when there was nothing. I am thankful for this great time in WHO history right now. Where if I want a book or a toy or chocolate shaped like a Dalek I can get it, and that is a fantastic feeling as a fan who lived through the Doctor Who Depression of the 90s
