The ABC is sending Doctor Who back in time so that the sci-fi legend materialises online a week before new episodes air on TV.
In an Australian first, the new adventures of Amy, Rory and The Doctor will be available on the ABC’s iView player from 5.10am AEST on Sunday September 2, just hours after the first episode airs in the UK.
The show will then reappear in the future, on ABC1at 7:30pm the following Saturday, September 8.
This is the first time a big blockbuster TV show will air in full on an Australian online player within hours of its official release elsewhere.
I must admit, I have recently got back into Dr Who thanks to the ABC iview service. It’s bloody awesome and now this, it just brings warmth to my stone heart. *emo look*
