The [Doctor Who] Thread

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:

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.

    Not yet, no. It's been nonstop home repair week at Casa de la Jacobkosh and part of me figures the longer I wait to watch Saturday's ep, the less annoying the cliffhanger wait will be.

    That's probably not a bad idea.

    Jump in here when you catch up, I'd like to comb over the episode with you.

    Hm. I might have to take time off from the Who thread if spoilers for episode 7 are floating around, because I'd rather approach that one totally clean, aside from the NEXT TIME trailer (which I can never resist watching).

    I haven't seen those for two-part episodes since Series 1. I thought they stopped doing them when people complained they gave too much away of the second part.

    they usually have them on after the credits instead to give you enough time to change the channel.

    I'm not so sure a break from June to September is much better than a break from July to December, in regards to the series-splitting going on this year.

    But I'll take it. Just like I waited through the almost one year wait for BSG.

    Well remember we're most likely also getting Sherlock in between that break so the way I see it most of the year is Moffat and Gatis.

    i think it is, remember theres a full 6 episodes to go from september, that leaves one or two months for the special and then back to april again for next series, it spaces it all out nicely, plus torchwood in-between for those who care.

    I know those spoilers for A Good Man Goes to War probably aren't really that "spoilery", but I'm not clicking 'cause I'd like to go in with absolutely zero idea of what to expect.

    But, oh geez it is so hard.

    Short answer: No

    Longer answer: It was published while Holmes was supposed to be dead, but took place before The Final Problem (the story where he "dies")

    For all intents and purposes, that is a full series. 6 episodes is a full length series over there, and Sherlock is just 3 double-length episodes (ie: full series).
