Question for those of you still watching the show:

Since there's a new companion in the TARDIS, do you think that I should give it a try and see if the new series pulls me back in? I'm wavering back and forth.

I stopped watching regularly in late Series 8 (the first series with Capaldi). I've never been a huge fan of Moffat as showrunner; his writing style works for one-offs but not so much series-long story arcs, IMO at least. (I also hate plot holes with a passion. That probably plays a role.) And Capaldi wasn't working for me as the Doctor, which made me sad because I really do love him as an actor. I found his portrayal of the character too dark to keep my attention, and combined with Moffat's writing it just didn't work for me.

So, with those caveats in mind, do those of you still watching thing that I should try to jump back in? Or do you think I would be better off waiting until the show has a new showrunner and actor in the role of the Doctor before giving it a try again? I'm at least a little curious about the new companion, but I don't know if the things that drove me away from Doctor Who several years ago have gotten any better or not.

Anyone want to chime in? Because I really miss Doctor Who, and I would adore to be able to start watching it again. I just don't know if it's at a point where I can yet.
