I don't know, because it's third world here maybe! I guess it's to do with money, maybe it's cheaper to get it delayed. They wanted to show the 50th anniversary special about 12 hours behind while the rest of the world watched it at the same time but there was such a massive backlash we ended up getting the simulcast.
It is odd not to have an air date yet with the series starting this week though, usually we'd know by now. Some cinemas here are screening the first episode on Saturday, but haven't decided whether to pay out to see it yet.
Well its better than waiting for it, surely? Particularly because I know from seeing the leaked episode, its a bloody brilliant piece of tele.
