BBC Worldwide Channels has today announced that the much-anticipated latest episodes of the BBC’s hugely popular sci-fi drama Doctor Who will be coming to BBC Entertainment in South Africa just one day after its UK premiere transmission.
The second part of Series Seven (eight episodes) will air on UK screens on 30th March 2013 and will transmit the following day, 31st March, on BBC Entertainment in South Africa at 19:00. The first fantastic adventure in the run is written by the show’s lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, and directed by Colm McCarthy, whose previous credits include Hustle, Spooks and Endeavour. Later adventures in the run are written by Mark Gatiss and Neil Gaiman among others.
Jon Farrar, VP Programming, EMEA, BBC Worldwide Channels said: “It’s a very important part of our programming strategy to bring our acquired content to air as close to its UK transmission as possible. Doctor Who is a hugely popular programme and I’m delighted we are able to bring the Doctor’s latest adventures to South Africanaudiences just one day after the UK premiere transmission.”
Can we just change the subject really quickly to Lee, that one guy from Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead, that Donna meets and ends up marrying while she’s saved in the hardrive of the computer? And then at the end she promises she’ll find him but when she gets out there’s no one by that name and so she just assumes that she made him up? But then he sees her walking away as he’s being teleported away but he can’t call out because he has a stutter and that’s the last time we ever see him?
Can we talk about that? Because that was one of the most heartbreaking moments in the history of Doctor Who in my opinion.
Moment of silence for Lee and Donna’s lost love, please.
