Despite what some loud complainers have been claiming, there are plenty of dedicated Who fans who have watched the whole lot of the 2018 series, millions of them, and I'm one of them. They're the core, and if Chibnall can snag two or three million more that's not to be sneezed at. I'm not saying it's the best it's ever been, but I had a good time watching it. It'll be interesting to see how many people watch the New Year's special.But logically, if you make a Dr Who for people who don’t normally watch Dr Who, some of those are going to drop off. And then you’ve potentially already distanced yourself from traditional Who fans in the process.
The attention spans of those who’ve been watching streadily since the sixties can hardly be questioned.
