I also like the new season of Doctor Who. I've stopped watching after Season 5 I think, but the current episodes have been entertaining and fresh.
I've watched and enjoyed all the modern seasons for a number of reasons:
-my kids, both as teens and as adults, liked it as much as me
-each Doctor and companion was different which kept the show fresh
-the story lines were usually original or at least not predictable
-it wasn't always sci-fi, or at least not always so much sci-fi
-the subtle - on not-to-subtle - messaging was usually spot on
-almost every episode made me laugh at least three times
