The conclusion I came to was a resounding 'no' - one era of cult TV was ending, but another was just around the corner, with the likes of BBC One's Atlantis and BBC Three's In The Flesh both gearing up to launch.
So last week, I asked Digital Spy readers to vote on which cult TV event of 2013-14 they were most excited for - below are the results of the poll, plus a few bonus suggestions from cult-savvy commenters...
> Week in Geek - Doctor Who and the big finale question: Who is John Hurt playing?
> Week in Geek - Agents of S.H.I.E.LD., Dracula: Our take on US TV's new cult shows
Doctor Who's 50th anniversary (Poll percentage - 77.54%)
Perhaps unsurprisingly given how popular the Beeb's sci-fi favourite is around these parts, it was Doctor Who's golden anniversary in November that dominated our poll, grabbing over 3/4 of the total vote.
On Saturday, November 23, fans can expect an extended Who episode featuring two Doctors - Matt Smith and David Tennant, one might-be-Doctor - John Hurt, two companions - Jenna-Louise Coleman and Billie Piper, and a magnificent medley of monsters...
Plus, there's Mark Gatiss's 'origins' docu-drama An Adventure in Space and Time, a London-based 3-day convention or '50th Celebration Weekend', and - we're assured - lots of other top-secret stuff yet to be announced...
24 returning for new limited series (16.56%)
Second place in our poll went to the resurrection of the Jack Bauer Power Hour, or 24 if you prefer. The real-time thriller's new 12-part 'limited run' - which bears the unfortunate subtitle Live Another Day - doesn't have a premiere date yet, but is currently assembling its writing team and cast...
Mary Lynn Rajskub has "high hopes" that Chloe O'Brian will be back (so do we!) but early buzz suggests that the Week in Geek's personal 24 favourite Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) won't be back. Dammit.
Atlantis launching on BBC One (4.14%)
There's already a good deal of buzz surrounding BBC One's Atlantis - a new Saturday night fantasy drama that's being billed as a replacement for the hugely popular Merlin.
Rising star Robert Emms (Kick-Ass 2) is one of our leads, surrounded by an impressive collection of seasoned acting vets - the likes of Mark Addy (Game of Thrones), Juliet Stevenson (The Village), Sarah Parish (Monroe) and Jemima Rooper (Lost in Austen) will all star in the series.
In The Flesh back for second series (1.67%)
The prospect of a return trip to Roarton has some of you twitching with excitement like a rotter with the scent of flesh in its nostrils. After a painful waiting period, BBC Three finally put In The Flesh fans out of their misery last week and we were greeted with good news...
Dominic Mitchell's innovative zombie drama will be back for an extended second run in 2014, following on from a first series that impressed on many levels but, at just three hours long, couldn't help but feel incomplete.
One Julia_J pointed out a glaring omission from our poll - the return of Sherlock is, of course, on every cult TV fan's radar - our only excuse for forgetting to include the show's third series is that we still don't know when we'll get to see the bleedin' thing!
And while its third season may have ended on a bit of an underwhelming note, theshadow knows that The Walking Dead can still deliver powerhouse drama when it's at its best and is amped up for season four, which launches in the US in October.
Meanwhile, geos wants more Amell abs, bellowing Barrowman and comic crusaders in Arrow season two, while Nigelk has a taste for remakes - he's psyched for The CW's new take on The Tomorrow People and the in-development Blake's 7 revamp we've been promised.
