Here’s an early Christmas present for “Doctor Who” fans (at least those in America).
If you’re excited that the United States gets to see “A Christmas Carol” on the same day it airs in the UK, get ready to get used to it.
According to CNN, the BBC And BBC America are in conversations to air new episodes of “Doctor Who” on the same day in both the UK and the US.
Fans have been doing this since the new series started using the Internet. And the BBC is aware of it and working to help fans watch episodes legally.
“(It) means fans love the shows so much they can’t wait to see them,” says vice president of programming at BBC America, Richard de Croce. “And that’s the world we live in, in terms of technology, quite honestly. So let’s air these shows as quickly as we can post the UK’s transmission. Plans are in the works for season six of “Doctor Who” to be broadcast the same day in the United States as well.”
Merry Christmas, “Doctor Who” fans!
