I just read a few days ago on another board that the American premiere wouldn't be until the 8th because they didn't want to show it on Labor Day weekend. But then again, about a week before that, I read that the worldwide premier would be August 25th. So there's a serious lack of communication going on somewhere.

I'm eager for new shows but they've really cheapened things up with the aftershows and such especially using Chris Hardwick as the spokesperson for all fans. Good thing I'm not forced to watched.

What are you referring to? This will be the 1st season I've watched live, having just caught up on the reboot. Do they have a show after the episode ala Talking Dead? Or are you talking about the absurd specials they've been running on sat. nights?

Starting last year, BBC America occasionally airs a Nerdist special (hosted by Chris Hardwick) after a new episode of Doctor Who, a bit like the time travel Nerdist special that aired after the Timey-Wimey Doctor Who special last Saturday. There is no regularly schedule program airing right after Doctor Who that analyzes the new episode (for now, BBC America is repeating the previous week's episode of Copper at 10pm on Saturdays).

That I think. I'm not sure they're even available in the US. I downloaded 1 but I guess I'm not quite a big enough "whovian" to appreciate it.

My Dish guide finally goes out to next Sunday... and I see they are running a Matt Smith marathon it looks like starting Friday which might very well be showing all of series 5 and series 6... but definitely has the most recent Christmas special at 8pm followed at 9pm Saturday with the new episode.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

I'm pretty sure it is showing the entire last two seasons in order with the specials pretty well thrown in their appropriate and original chronological spots.

posting here so the newbies won't get "spoiled".

the "nice-looking lady" posted about in the Season 7 thread will indeed be back. I was right -when I 1st saw her in the premiere I recognized the new companion.

1. she's more than "nice-looking"!!! she's adorable! much cuter than her publicity pic posted earlier in this thread.

2. be REALLY fun to see how the Doctor works this out-but ample precedent( i.e. pretty much all of Season 6!)

3. since I think this was the 1st time we learn that humans can be converted to Daleks then why can't they be "unconverted"-or something?

4. we're given a few strong clues-she kept forcefully saying "I am NOT a Dalek--I AM HUMAN!!!" and the Doctor said it was a "dream"
she constructed. Well.....maybe not. The Doctor's been mistaken before.

5. don't know if they( i.e. Moffat & Co.) keep the character name tho I hope they do. In any case she's gonna be fun!!!!

Weren't the Daleks revealed to be already doing that back in season 1, in the episode where Rose absorbed the time vortex, killed the Daleks attacking Earth, and resurrected Captain Jack?

In case it hasn't been mentioned (I haven't read the previous pages), it is series 7, not season 7. Since the return of the Doctor in 2005, they have been series, as most UK shows are.

Until the return, they were called seasons.

I'm curious, did the first episode of series 7 on BBCA get shown in a 1 hr or a 1.5 hr time slot?

I don't get BBCA and wouldn't watch it via that method anyway, as the Doctor is meant to be seen uncut, commercial free and without bugs/snipes.

The first episode was a little over 58 minutes long.

CORRECTION: Oops, the episodes was about 48:45 in length. Not sure where I got the 58 minute time value. Plus I see there is a Season 7 thread (though it is really Series 7) and that the series premiere was in a 65 min time slot.

Way back in the classic series of Doctor Who, there was a story where a new group of Daleks was being made from humans... and an older group of Kaled Daleks were pissed off about it.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Whatever. ToMAYto/ToMAHto. That's kind of a pendantic distinction.

Actually, while the current Doctor Who incarnation is not a good example, in the UK many shows don't really adhere to the season formula we use here. Some have been shown twice a year, others may not be aired for over 2 years or more, a prime example would be the most recent series of "The Thick Of It", the first episode of Series 4 just aired in the UK the other day, the last episode of Series 3 aired way back in Dec of 2009 while the last episode of Series 2 aired in Nov 2005. In the US, if a show doesn't return within a 12 month time span it is almost certainly been cancelled, not so in the UK, and other parts of the world.

THE SOPRANOS
Season 4 Sept '02 - Dec '02
Season 5 Mar '04 - Jun '04
Season 6 Mar 06 - Jun -07 (with a nearly year long break in the middle of the season)

MAD MEN
Season 4 Jul '10 - Oct '10
Season 5 Mar '12 - Jun '12

3-2-1 CONTACT (PBS Series)
Season 1 - Jan ''80 - Feb '80
Season 2 - Oct '83 - Nov '83
( ran 5 more seasons after that)

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
Had an unusually short break from April '05 to July '05 between seasons 1 & 2. Had a 4 month break in the middle of season 2.
Had a 13 month break between seasons 3 & 4.

ENTOURAGE
Had slightly longer than 12 month break between seasons 3 & 4, and again between 4 & 5.

FUTURAMA:
I'll grant you that it was cancelled between season 5 (2003) and Season 6 (2010). But they are still referred to as season 5 and 6, with official production #'s using the same continuous format as previous seasons. Season 6 is not referred to as a new series.

Let's just be honest that, as they are currently used, the difference between the UK and American terms 'Series' and 'Season' as regards TV broadcasts is the same difference as using 'torch' instead of 'flashlight', 'boot' instead of 'trunk', 'pram' instead of 'baby carriage', and 'football' instead of 'soccer'. It shouldn't really bother anyone that they are used interchangeably.

Not exactly. A "series" in the UK is usually no more than 8 episodes. A few very popular shows like Doctor Who are 12 or 13. In this US there's a tradition of a "television season" from about mid-September to mid-May, with reruns or fill-in programming in the summer. Thats been blurred in the last decade by cable channels running a series off the regular network schedule, or splitting a season. Some shows in the UK, like their afternoon soaps, run twice a week for pretty much the whole year. So in that case a season might be the better term. Also in the UK a series the production company usually doesn't get an order until after the current series has aired.

oh yeah, "The Parting of the Ways". altho in that ep. humans were being kidnapped & their DNA & various body parts used to "grow" new Daleks.
here it was nanogenes actually altering human bodies. different method, same result I guess.
