Doctor Who, Being human US broadcasting news.....

The Next Doctor will be airing on BBC America around June 27th -
In a turnabout from a previous arrangement, BBC America now has first US broadcast rights for the soon-to-be-aired hour-long specials of Doctor Who, Variety reported today.

The Next Doctor, the show's 2008 Christmas episode, will make its US debut at 9:00 p.m. on June 27, followed by Planet of the Dead in July (date TBA). Specific US air dates will be determined for the subsequent specials after they've aired in the UK.

BBC America - which has to bid for British shows just like any other American broadcaster - will continue its first run deal on Torchwood, airing that show's third season in July.

Other science fiction shows debuting on the network this summer include Being Human (starting July 25) and Survivors, starring Doctor Who's Freema Agyeman (date TBA). The third season of ITV's dinosaur time romp Primeval is currently airing on the network.

Current BBC America president Garth Ancier says that's the network should always have had Doctor Who. "If I'd been here [when the original deal was made]," Ancier said, "we wouldn't have sold it, to be quite honest." For the last four years, the Sci Fi Channel has held first rights, with BBC America holding second rights.

-------------------

So good news for US fans as long as you have BBC America.

A short walk style picspam

After the long trek to Port Meadow on thursday i was a bit pooped, so i could only manage a very short walk.
Some french women asked me where Oxford University was i replied "there isn't a physical university as such, it's made up of all
the colleges and various other college owned buildings".

A semi picspam of a sunny oxford

Semi as in Flickr Uploadr keeps crashing on me, so it keeps failing to upload stuff.
Though i got myself the Battery grip for my Camera. Which means i can either run it off two camera batterys (gonna
buy another one before my friends wedding) or 6xAA batteries. Just means i have to swap the battery magazines
over. Only problem is, i've tightened the screw on the battery grip too much, so i can't get it off my camera.
Anyway that's of no consquence, i have two shutter buttons now, one on the camera and one on the battery grip.
Plus my man hands don't hurt so much, now that i've got a bigger area to grip.

Part one of a two part picspam of Oxford in spring sunshine......

It's a beautiful if windy day, today. I went out for a stroll, not expecting to take many photographs.
I should have just kept my camera out instead of putting it away, only to get it out again.
Note to self: use lowepro slingshot camera bag once it's been found amongst the junk.
Anyway part one is of the photographs taken in Christ Church....



30ish photographs....... )
