    MaryAnn, I going to try and be there with a friend too.

  • Les Carr

    I bet everyone there has already seen the ep!

  • Yes, it’s very silly how they think it’s a good idea to delay the broadcast in one country after it’s already aired in another… This is 2010, guys. We have the internet now.

    Of course, the way they get ratings is so out-dated that it kind of doesn’t matter. Also silly!

  • MaryAnn

    There are a surprising number of people who don’t quite get the Internet yet. I don’t mean, in this instance, the broadcasters or cablecasters, but the fans. There are a surprising number of people saying things like, “How can you have seen the new Doctor Who already?! It doesn’t air till the 17th!”

  • LaSargenta

    Good grief! How early will one have to get in line? First come, first served, indeed! The biggest theater @ Village East is decent sized, but, still…

  • Markyd

    That’s funny you say that, Mary Ann, because I was just going to ask where one goes to view a program like Dr. Who before it’s US premiere? Perhaps you’re not allowed to post a link here, but I’m willing to take a hint or two.
    For the record, I simply don’t watch tv programs on the internet, so, besides going through the network site itself, where does one go? Hulu? Some torrent site?

  • MaryAnn

    Google is your friend.

  • gina

    MaryAnn, google has not been my friend. I was wondering the same thing as Markyd. Is it a torrent?

  • KarenP

    I saw it on Youtube shortly after it was broadcast – always a good bet :-)

  • L. Gerrard

    You can download a proxy and watch it after the episode airs on the BBC website. That’s what my friends and I usually do.

  • Leslie Carr

    The very first comment in the FF posting silly ‘Doctor Who’ picture of the day gave a URL which indirectly linked to a download site. I have no idea whether any of the instructions are still valid.

  • I saw it on Youtube shortly after it was broadcast – always a good bet :-)

    Shhh! ;-)

    Of course, the good folks at the BCC seem to be doing their best to change that but you’d have to see for yourself what type of progress they’ve made because I don’t believe MaryAnn officially endorses the use of that site for that purpose. Officially, at least…

  • MaryAnn

    I don’t officially endorse anything.

    But if you Google “torrent” plus something that’s been on TV — using the show name and episode name — you’ll likely to find something worth your while.

    Google is always your friend… but you have to be specific enough for it to help you.

  • Anne-Kari

    Apparently, our new cable provider will have BBC America, so I look forward to the new Doctor Who, if for no other reason than curiousity and a willingness to try again…

    My 6yr old daughter, however, continues her disgust and utter disdain for the new Doctor and his “Stupid stupid hair” and his “Stupid weird eyes” and his “Dumb ugly shoes” etc, etc.

    Look, I’ve tried to be fair, I presented the new doctor in the most even-handed way I could. She ain’t buying this ‘totally FAKE new Doctor who is so stupid and NOT THE DOCTOR’.

    Bronxbee, I think she takes after you :)
