They’ve moved the US release of the Doctor Who DVD set back so they can show the episodes on the SciFi channel Fridays at 9 PM ET, starting in March. The box set is now scheduled for July 4.
I’m curious to see how this goes. Most of the people I know in the US who were interested have already downloaded and watched the show, and isn’t Fridays at 9 the traditional TV graveyard for SF? I hope 3 things: I’m being unnecessarily pessimistic; this brings new viewers to the show, which is good; and this allows them to add the Christmas special to the box set.
