A Crack in Time?

Everybody – except maybe BBC One – knows that the best TV series in history will return on 27th August, and BBC America can’t stop teasing us.

The latest promo poster promises the collision of past, present and future with the Doctor and the Ponds (let’s include River in that now, shall we?) looking expectantly. There’s something behind them too. Can’t quite remember what though.

And that’s not all. It looks as if River is being split from the TARDIS team by a spark of electricity. Or could that be a crack…?

Sorry, when did you say Doctor Who will return, BBC?

    BBCA is definitely doing a great job promoting the return but somehow, I get the sinking feeling that it will all be undone come Labor day and they’ll probably skip that week and we’ll be getting episodes a week late from there on in. Hopefully they will have learned from their Memorial Day screw up…..

    Is it just me, or is Matt not wearing a tweed jacket, but another type of jacket entirely??? :O

    That’s the long military green frock coat he’ll be wearing for some or most of the remaining episodes. I, personally like it. It’s pictured in the new promos……..

    Dear BBC,

    Please get the finger out of your collective @r$e$ and start promoting this show. A foreign country is putting you to shame. What is it exactly that we are paying our licence fees for?

    You forget that the BBC in the UK has Quite A Lot of Shows and the BBC in America has one golden egg above all others. We also know that the BBC UK only announces TV schedules two weeks beforehand. So expect an announcement on Saturday that DW returns two weeks later, on 27 Aug and eight hours (or so) before broadcast in America.

    Also expect a number of promos all kicking off in the two weeks beforehand, particularly w/c 22/08.

    Oh and BBC America co-funded this series, so that gives them extra impetus to promote this show.

    Now stop worrying and stop whinging about the licence fee – it’s not paid to only promote the shows you like. Imagine if you were an F1 fan…

      You are wrong. BBC America coughed up the dough for them to film some scenes in America. Nothing more. This is not about BBC America anyway. It is about the BBC taking their primary revenue stream and audience for granted and for allowing a secondary market to run rings around them.

    Just relax mate, it’s not that important.

      I am relaxed. Sarcasm and irony don’t translate well on t’internet. I’m only posting this stuff to wind people up. No one seems to comment on stories so I’m having a bit of fun.

        Depends how well you try. You’re clearly not very good at it. Perhaps, as previously requested, you could attempt adding some constructive thoughts to your comments?

    There is nothing constructive about the current situation. A part our cultural heritage is in danger of being sold off, repackaged and sold back to us and I’m not okay with that. If people want to shout me down for speaking out then so be it.

    Never mind the crack, has anyone else noticed that Amy’s face is older on one side than it is on the other. A reference to “The Girl Who Waited” perhaps? Either that and its just the lighting and I’m going daft.
