I don't know, Doctor Who always felt very episodic to me, with some general arcs..sort of like a Monster of the Week, with a over-arching arc in the background.

Keep in mind I watch a lot of pure serials - such as Riverdale, Daredevil, Game of Thrones, Killing Eve, The Good Place,
BSG...huge serial fan. Not really a fan of the old monster of the week episodic series, with a running back story - such as Star Trek, Doctor Who, Buffy (up until approx S5, when the writers decided the heck with this, we suck at stand-a-lone's we're going full serial), Angel (up until S4), NCIS, Bones, etc.

Broadchurch was pure serial. You can't just jump in at any time in a pure serial series. I could jump in at any time for Who.

And while he did do Torchwood -- Torchwood had issues. Children of the Earth -- which I think was done by RT Davies (?) was better plot-wise in my opinion. Torchwood had plot-holes a plenty.
