Does anyone really actually understand the ENTIRE plot of Dr. Who? Come on... be honest.

I'm sure there are a few people with super brains, who are able to follow the plot with all its twists and turns, references to past shows, coincidences and little mysteries being solved along the way, but I bet most people are like and just understand about 80% of some episodes and only 50% of episodes like the last one.
Is it a programme only to be fully understood by extremely analytical people with a good brain for solving puzzles or people as clever as Steven Moffat? Or is it that it's not a case of the emperer's new clothes and everyone else actually does understand and follow the plot and its just me and I should probably stick to watching more simpler programmes for simple minded folk?

Mostly I can follow it fineish...apart from things that I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be confused about for a while, but I've been watching it since I was a child and I've watched older episodes than that and have a rough idea of others from before my era.

Last night's though, that was, well, I think I get it mostly after watching it all, but, I didn't enjoy it and I'm not sure why it wasn't just ten minutes on the beginning of an episode.

Nope. Not a clue. I loved it when it first came back with Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant but I can't follow it now. Dd1 likes it and had it on last night but I couldn't follow all that wittering on. I think the plots and writing have been shit since Matt Thingy started. Sorry Matt.

I'm with you remember fondly the days when a green alien would appear on screen and the Dr would slowly explain to his assistant the who what why weres of species before spending episode chasing each other around an empty multi storey carpark.

Now there are so many half dead half darlik half zongn, zombie dead Dr under the sea hologram ,pod holding Clara/Dr body parts around. You never know who's really or not. Please let Clara still be dead please

I'm another one that's been watching since I was a child. I could follow it no bother back in the days of Ace (she was and will always be my hero, love her!)
These days I have to pause it every few minutes and ask DH questions that he pretends to know the answer to.
