TomAckroyd: So there is no NZ broadcast of this show, free or paid, in HD? *boggle*


a DNS or VPN service such as Unotelly.com, plenty of other options and bbc iplayer just to name one option.

The services usually have trials so you can always give it a go first.


Yes, I rewatched it on iPlayer last night via UnblockUS. But the iPlayer stream doesn't appear to be HD.


No it was not the best quality but if your go for the download option you can choose HD,

Points taken but DNS/VPN/iPlayer/Unotelly are not "NZ broadcast".

Using get_iplayer you can download the 720p version and in Stereo (not DD). 1.3gb or so flv.. Looks beautiful imho.

INFO: height 720.00
INFO: videocodecid avc1
INFO: audiocodecid mp4a
INFO: audiosamplerate 48000.00
INFO: audiochannels 2.00

Still going to be a heck of a lot better than what is going to be broadcast on Prime.

Edited to add the time of 7:30pm




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

The theme is an improvement on the last one IMO. The only re-working of the theme that kept the spooky vibe for me was Davison's theme.

The Murray Gold ones are a bit OTT (says the guy who did his own overblown epic version containing elements of Gold's theme.)




My very metal Doctor Who theme

Ep 2 sitting on a usb stick waiting to watch once I finish some housework. Prime is too little too late and the more people who tell them they have already seen it and they missed out by tardiness and blurriness the better.

The old guy in the alley scene with the coat is apparently the husband of the late Elisabeth Sladen (for those that don't know - Doctor Who companion from the 70s, Sarah Jane Adventures etc).

I agree... much better. Still not a shade on Matt Smith. He's quite a bit darker and loved how Clara is also leading the Doctor rather than him being the centre of attention.
