Why people hate Doctor Who

Doctor Who, the longest running sci-fi show in the world! I personally am a hardcore fan of new who and classic who. Like all the doctors (Well, maybe not 6 and 7 really) but all the doctor s have at least one good things about them. But anyway, there are 3 types of people in doctor who, hardcore fans, haters and people who don't know what it is.
So I'd like to hear why the haters hate it- You have to have at least seen 2 full episodes.
Personally, I think Doctor Who is the most brilliant TV show ever created, it has sci-fi, drama, mystery, action, great music, and so many things. But other people don't like it at all for some insane reason that your suppose to write below this-

There are haters that LOVE to hate on something and then people that simply don't care for the show.

I've seen about 15 episodes, and I couldn't follow it whatsoever. Overall it just doesn't suit my tastes.

I think one problem people have with Doctor Who is that it takes itself too seriously at times. While I don't mind the drama and angst in the new series, it's best when its completely campy.

I just find it "all right", and can see why people like it or dislike it. I'll watch it every now and then and appreciate it, but can't get really into it. I guess sci-fi isn't my thing? Or the fact that my friend made me watch all the 9 and the first few 10 episodes in a span of like 3 days. Kind of overdid it a bit. I couldn't get into it enough to do a marathon.

I can't say I've ever met anyone who hates it XD

I'm friends with people who really like the show, though it's not really something I'd get into. Maybe one of these days I'll give it a try.

I heard that in the course of almost 60 years they ran out of ideas and the doctor himself is a Gary Stu.

I watched 42, Blink and Sound of the Drums and then just stopped. I don't know why I stopped to be honest, Blink was amazing although scary. I guess I found some element of dullness in the other two, I just can't be bothered watching Doctor Who. I can't say I'm a hater though.

I love Doctor Who. But I hate the whole combination of the doctor, sonic screwdriver and the tardis-can-do-anything team because it renders any actual sense of danger in the show pointless because it's the doctor he doesn't have any limits he always ends up saving everyone. Other than that it's great.

I feel sorry for people who have never known the magic of Doctor Who. I also find that people with no imagination don't like it. They are not worth speaking to.

I neevr watched this show and I honestly don't have much of an interest in doing so partly due to the INSANE fans who started calling me the biggest idiot to ever live because I said it didn't look appealing. maybe I would have watched it one day but the fanbase destroyed the idea.

I have a friend who's a hardcore Whovian as well, but I never got into Doctor Who. I guess the strong continuity and length of the franchise as a whole put me off.

I don't care much for Doctor who. I like Sherlock because it really makes me think. But I can completely understand why some people like it or LOVE it because it's totally fun and full of action. :) I'm more of a firefly or Dexter person though. :)

It's cheesy as heck. When I started watching it I thought that there was no possible way I'd be able to deal with the near-lethal levels of campy cheese. It was like watching a string of B-movies with rough character continuity.

Then something happened and it infected my brain and nowicantstopwatchinggoodnesshelpme

I started with nine and now I'm nearing the end of ten and looking forward to eleven and thinking of going back and watching four (which I've only seen little bits of when I was a kid). So yeah. Crazy. O_o

The older ones aren't as good quality though, as the technology has gotten better and things can be made in hd now. It would be nice if they remastered the old ones

That really seems unnecessary to be honest. We have the old Simpsons seasons on DVD, and that's good enough. If you really want to improve the quality of the video, then those old seasons should be put on Blueray.
