Can't bear UK L&O only because of that Freema one. She always has her mouth hanging open, it makes her look gormless and she's such a wooden actress. I find myself shouting at the telly whenever I see her.

Watched the first 2 or 3 eps then gave up. Not because of the actors, more the setting: "Come to the UK. It's all like Kings fscking Cross!"

Anyone watch the Doctor Who Christmas Special last night ? And Matt Smith on Graham Norton afterwards ? The DW Xmas special premiered on BBC America at the same time as on BBC UK last night (in case you missed it). BBCA will be going HD from next year, apparently They don't have a lot of programming choices but appear to be getting better each year imho ....

Not a big DW fan so gave that a miss, got the GN show, not seen it yet though.

Just wondering, PBS, is that in HD for people? Our's isn't, neither is the RI that we get...but it was when we were up in Maine, of all places

That particular Graham Norton show is all Matt Smith and mostly about the DW Christmas special. Give it a shot Bob. It's very good. Downloadable on UKNova. I've watched DW off and on and but love it since we have a new Doctor.

Yeah our local PBS station went HD around June/July this year.

We watched DW, it was nice to watch a Christmas special on the day, however I found the episode disappointing it seemed like the idea was thrown together very quickly for the sole purpose of throwing out a Christmas special, it also had a couple of major TV burp errors.

That was it, I guess I have it downloaded and plan to watch it again, so shall look out for TV burps this time!

BBC America is already available in HD. Has been for a while. Local availability depends on whether your cable/satellite provider carries the HD channel. Here it took Time Warner a couple of months to agree terms and carry the HD version.

You're quite right! But it looks like our provider Comcast is getting it only in January of 2011. Oh well, not long to wait

I thought the Dr Who was fantastic. Sometimes the Christmas specials are silly but I thought they did a good job of taking a Christmas theme and making a proper story out of it.

This is possibly my favourite 3 minutes of TV ever, and they didn't even get to show it because the lawyers ballsed it up. The whole episode was fantastic. I have developed love for Craig Ferguson though, so very bizarre (and very Scottish).

Cheers

Me too Thanks for the clip, I must have missed that particular episode. I try to catch Craig Ferguson if I can stay up late enough
