1st episode simulcast
Board: Doctor Who

Similar to the 50th Anniversary special, 13's first episode will be simulcast across the world so everyone will see it at the same time. It will air at 7:45 PM London time, which is 1:45 PM Eastern and 10:45 AM Pacific.

I no longer have any sort of TV service, so I plan to try out a free trial of YouTube TV for the first episode. At $40 a month, it will have to be really great in order for me to keep it, but it's worth a try.

It's interesting that they are trying to limit Spoilers like that. Unfortunately I will be driving home from an event at that time any won't be able to watch it "live". (I also don't own a TV so I will also be doing a free trial of a streaming service.

Don't post any spoilers, you! I bought the season on Amazon already but I don't know if Amazon would have it at the same time. I'm probably going to have to wait until Sunday.

It’s already posted by amazon.
I’m surprised no comments on the episode

I actually liked it. I wasn't so sure, cause I was not a big fan of hers in Broadchurch. I thought she did a pretty good job and they didn't make it all about her being a woman. It was mentioned but kind of an afterthought kind of thing. I did think for a while that thing was the tardis all melted down. Glad to see it wasn't.

It was humorous when the Doctor wanted to know why they were calling her a she and did it fit her

I read somewhere that Broadchurch cramped Whittaker’s style and she was thrilled when she could be herself

I really liked her speech about change:

We’re all capable of the most incredible change. We can evolve, while still saying true to who we are. We can honor who we’ve been and choose who we want to be next.

It fits the story and the spirit of the Doctor to try to convince the villain to change, plus on a meta level I feel like she’s talking to the fans, especially calling out those who are upset that she’s now a woman.

Is anyone else thinking “It’ll be fine” is going to be her new catchphrase?

I just watched it on bbc America for free. There was a bit more commercials than I'd like, but hey, it's free.

I opted to get it thru Amazon because I don’t subscribe to cable television and therefore don’t have access to BBC America.

Sorry, I should have mentioned bbc America online.
It's on the Internet. I don't have any cable/satellite or even an antina anymore.

Interesting. When I went to bbc America online it said to watch full episodes you needed to name your cable provider and if your plan included bbc. I wonder if it’s like what they’ve done with other shows. You get the first and maybe rescind episode and then you have to pay
