[Doctor Who]: Season 6 Is Now

Okay! Right, first, general background!
Wikipedia wrote:
Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts the adventures of a mysterious alien time-traveller known as "the Doctor" who travels in his space and time-ship, the TARDIS, which normally appears from the exterior to be a blue 1950s police box. With his companions, he explores time and space, solving problems, facing monsters and righting wrongs.

The current TARDIS crew:

I'm being extremely clever up here and there's no one to stand around looking impressed! [How to Watch]
Americans/Canadians: REJOICE. The BBC, in its infinite wisdom, is no longer delaying the airing of new episodes on our side of the pond. (Well, technically, they still are, but it's in terms of hours instead of weeks.)

Americans: BBC America, Saturdays, 9 PM EST
Canadians: Space, Saturdays, 8 PM ET
Britons: BBC1, Saturdays, 6 PM BST

Now, I can't check the scanner... [if you don't own a TV...]
Unless my math is wrong: people watching in standard definition should go with an iTunes season pass. People who want high-def goodness should go with an Amazon VOD subscription.
Spoiler:

Time isn't a straight line, it's all bumpy-wumpy. [Delays for digital subscribers]
The delay appears to be about 9 hours from the end of the episode for it to hit Amazon/iTunes.

Shouldn't that be 13, and not 7?
iTunes and Amazon are billing this as "Doctor Who Season 6 (Part 1)", in light of the fact that it's being split in half: we get seven episodes, with a midseason break after (I believe) June 11, and the show returning in the fall.

    No, that was the universe. I know it seems a bit backwards, but I'd say timey-wimey probably comes into it somewhere.

    Ooh. I'm gonna actually post in a Doctor Who thread this time. It's my New Year's Resolution.

    That tin TARDIS is totally baller, dude. As well as all the Doctors. And... Is that the fob watch from Family of Blood? Is there something of note between that and the three Sonic Screwdrivers? I am intrigued by your collection of fabulousness there.

    Yes. that is the fobwatch from family of blood. It's the metal, proper pocketwatch version, my friend got it for my last Christmas, it's a beautiful bit of merchandise. And that is just a memory stick between the pocketwatch and the screwdrivers, but it does have the first bunch of Mcgann Big Finish stories on it.

    I've also been searching amazon and i've bought quite a few Virgin New Adventures and Eighth Doctor Novels, think I'm gonna have to clear another shelf when they arrive.

    Also, if anyone has been on the fence or thinking about it, i suggest you pick up the Eleven Doctors figure set whilst it is still a reasonable price. They are all very well made and the value for money is excellent.

    I think i have destiny of the doctors somewhere in the attic.

    I remember watching The Master clips from that that are included on the survival dvd a few months ago, whilst suffering from a terrible flu bout and having crazy fever visions. Those clips really didn't help, i didn't need Anthony Ainsley calling me "Gov"

    Oh, man, DoD was the best. I used to just explore the City of Thoughts and run around the TARDIS, bumping into walls and going "wom-wommm". In fact, to this day, whenever my brother and I are playing games, we go "wom-wommm" whenever one of us hits a wall. For those of you who don't get it,

    watch between about 50 seconds in to... anywhere

    I can't wait to see the next season! Meantime I still have some recent episodes to catch up on. (I missed the one where Ten changes to Eleven.) Are they available for viewing online anywhere (that Americans can watch)?

    Rabbit vibrators have the little two prong attachment that specifically works the clitoris in a famously intense fashion.

    There's also dolphin types.
