I must abstain; so far as I know it's not going to be on in Singapore in the near future.

I'm open to watching, although I never got the Doctor Who stuff. Every time I tried watching, in the late 80s, it was a twenty-minute-long scene of a couple people in an overly bright white hallway shuffling around, and it never seemed to get anywhere. I was always told there was more to it than that, but I never saw it.

True, there were more than a few Bright White Corridors™.. indeed, I was watching just such a story (Attack of the Cybermen) the other day, and of course, the space station involved has an apparently very generous energy budget for lighting. (For best results, combine with a 1972 broadcast vidicon)

Certainly, it's inevitable it'll appear on the net in short order - indeed, shows I could, theoretically, receive off-air I'm downloading instead, simply for the convenience of having it in digital form, and thus able to be stuffed onto a DVD-R, not to mention in widescreen and in stereo, whereas here I'm limited to the 4:3 terrestrial broadcasts and in mono. (I remain puzzled why absolutely no broadcaster, that I'm aware of, offers a show from their own servers, for some modest fee. I wonder how the economics would work out on, say, 24, or a popular soap, like Coronation Street? I suppose it's still only the particularly technically inclined who'd be interested, so maybe it wouldn't be worth their while. Still, would be good to see)
