He does have a habit of making a big spectacle, never mind the consequences, and making the villains, like the Master, too powerful so that the Doctor must come up with some new contrivance to get out of the situation. While people can compare Doctor Who with the past that they're familiar with, and acknowledge that RTD brought it back, it makes it easier for some to dismiss Torchwood and elements of it for being a newer show and more subject to those more extreme and un-Doctor Who like situations. Though RTD started the concept of Torchwood, and introduced it well, most of the series was written by others and has many good moments. When he took it over again with CoE, while it was a spectacular production, it was also prone to excess. 

I did find more to like about series 5 with Steven Moffat, along with his standout episodes with the previous Doctors. I liked the character moments for the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory, and the whole season tied together well with a continuation leading into series 6.
