Definitely. Fandom is always going to move forward. I have seen some examples of people who sort of create a bubble where they try to close themselves off at a point where they liked canon, but I think it's hard for that to be part of the larger fandom that's always going to be reacting to things that happened later. Even if you're focusing on a certain time of the show (like I imagine Dr. Who fandom writes about different doctors?) you're aware of things that came later.

It is definitely very different with a shorter series like on the BBC--or a book series, too. You can get years in between books, Which also has its own effect on the fandom because you've got longer to get used to the fandom version in between new installments.
