Logic is flexible, poetry is immutable.

The only reason I haven't watched that season so far is because I think I'd need to know the backstory of the previous few seasons... and I don't wanna.
No, you don't really, it's very self-contained. I just can't help but throw it at people because it's supremely good TV with amazing characters. (S8 and S9 were... difficult. Some amazing stuff in there, but I can understand why people were put off.) S10 is just like an extra - a perfect slice of Doctor Who, funny and touching and rich and dark and clever and all the things.
If you'll like it is of course a completely different question. But thank you for coming to my TED talk. ;)
ETA: And now I start to doubt myself. Like, I love that season beyond anything, and it's very much a standalone, and the first half is just fun travelling around, but it DOES go on to break your heart, so if what you want from Doctor Who is what you got from this season (or the Ninth Doctor), maybe just leave it alone. Unless you really like TV that is actual poetry.
