I like the idea of more variety in length and format and bringing whole boxsets rather than waiting each month. I'll probably continue buying everything Who even if the urge to drop Seven does occasionally raise it's bitter head! I'd hate to miss the occasionally good/great one that comes through which is why I have to buy them all rather than pick and choose.
When I started I was only going to buy Eighth Doctor stuff as I dislikes 80s who intensely but having caught up with Eight I dipped into 5, 6 & 7 from the start intending to try a few until I got bored and here I am with them all. Sixie was a revelation on audio and quickly became my fav BF Doctor, even surpassing Eight. Five started out meh and has been on and off since, loved the Erimem run, loved the Adric run, loving the Marc run. Seven is still my least favourite despite some great individual stories and a couple of great runs (Klein, Hex) but he's still the most likely to disappoint. The Ace & Mel run was mostly blah and they've failed the carve ppout a decent post Ace era so I'm suffering from Ace fatigue. I do like the rare later morose Seven as in Valhalla, and loved the New Adventures boxset but Seven is the one I'm most likely to drop to save pennies once they're purchaseable by Doctor.
Dunno if I agree. The Chris & Roz stories were very good
With regard to BF carving out a decent post Ace era for Seven, I think it's more that they haven't tried very hard or tried very often than that they "failed"
