Is new Doctor Who more literary than old Doctor Who?

Many people prefer the newer Doctor Who series, masterminded by Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat, to the "classic" version from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Is that just a matter of taste and production values, or is the newer version more literary and thus more deserving of love? » 5/29/12 5:12pm 5/29/12 5:12pm
