Most fandoms are the same in my experience, just not so cleanly divided in to eras like DW is. It's pretty hard wanting to know everything about a show and seeing the comments section of any article being a flame war fairground.

Kinda glad that both I wasn't old enough and that the Internet wasn't a thing when Star Trek: The Next Generation was new. Apparently the vitriol between sides was just as harsh.

@DalekAgent Well, if we're doing FYIs on things we already know, Daleks didn't appear in the old school series 5, 6, 7, or 8. A gap of four years. Then they appeared in 9, 10, 11, and 12 before having another gap of four years. If you look at those figures and compare it to the "overuse" claim that goes around fandom with the modern series, a more astute conclusion would be that the new series has not given the Daleks extensive gaps like the old series did, so the anticipation of a new Dalek story is more of an "Again?" rather than an "About time!"

Ten stories, hey? In between Jon Pertwee starting and the show's revival in 2005, there were eight Dalek stories.
