Time Compression

In the past Doctor Who episodes have not been shown on US television until months after their UK broadcast. The 2008 Christmas special was shown on US TV on 28 June 2009, over six months late. The Planet of the Dead special was shown here a month later, about three months after UK broadcast. Last Saturday saw the broadcast of Waters of Mars, just a month after the UK. The two part special that ends David Tennant’s reign as the Doctor will be broadcast over the next two Saturdays; just one day after UK showing. I hope that when the show returns with a regular season, the time gap will remain this small.

For the first time since arriving in the US, I will not need to have a recording mailed to me or use other methods to watch the show. Unfortunately,  my satellite provider does not show BBC America HD, so I shall need to wait for the disc release to see it in full Hi-Def.
