Agreed (EDIT with Mogster's post) I sit and watch it with my 8, 6 and 4 year olds and they adore it. It’s more for them these days than it is for me.
As much as I see the faults I just go with it and enjoy it because I can see how much my kids are living every story. I have really strong memories of hiding behind the sofa and peeking out to see Tom Baker era Who, despite the changes in recent modern Who i can see that now with my own kids. I feel a head nuzzle into my armpit, a grip tighten on my forearm or catch glimpse of eyes through fingers as the kids do what they need to do to get through a scary moment to reach enlightenment where the penny drops for them.
My eldest (daughter) is particularly enamoured by Whittaker, so much so that she requested a dress up and her sonic, which if I’m honest was a huge surprise having show no interest in Who previously. A strong role model if ever there was one IF you don’t pick it apart too much (as adults tend to do).
That said, Smith’s era captured my 6 year olds imagination more so than any other new Who Doctor that we’ve watched together. Which, for me, has the strongest arcs and stories.
