So after many years of gentle and not so gentle prodding I have finally started watching Doctor Who.  In the past I have seen snippets of the new series, and generally walked away muttering “…alright …that was odd…don’t see much point in that.” However my friends BatMatt and Doc kept suggesting I try it (much the same way we kept suggesting Rich try watching Firefly…) and since I share a lot of tastes in
common when it comes to TV shows and comics a few months ago I relented and let Doc know that I had come to terms with fact that someday I would eventually ended up watching some Doctor Who but needed to know where to start.


Fast forward to two weeks ago when my father had me open a Netflix account so we could figure out why Netflix streaming wasn’t working for him (no streaming outside the 50 states and DC…you lose out if you live in a Commonwealth of the US it turns out…bummer).  Since I had started the clock on my 2 week trial I figured I might as well take advantage of it once we were back in Rochester.


So early last week I started out watching Season 1 of the New Doctor Who series, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor. The first 13 episodes are available via Netflix streaming, and I have watched 12.


If you haven’t watched the series yet…you might as well stop reading unless you want to be spoiled as to how I reacted…

I purchased this season on Apple TV so I could watch the episodes without commercial interruptions. For episodes 1-5, it's been a great experience, streaming-wise. Those episodes were available the day after airing in the UK and on BBC America. I was able to watch them on Monday evenings. Today is Wednesday, and episode 6 has yet to become available. Apple says BBC America has not uploaded it to them yet, so, in place of the "Watch Now" button on Apple TV, there's a "Subscribe to AMC+ to Watch" button.

A few minutes before noon today, I received an email telling me that episode 6 is now available for streaming and download. I downloaded it as soon as I got home.
