I'm assuming it won't be broadcast in Norway, but mabye we will get reruns in a few months or season 8 on netflix in a year or so. Does anybody know how soon we will be able to watch it without having to download, or watch, it illegally?

I've just checked my local cinema times and it still says it starts from 7:35. Will it start at that time or will it join up with the television time of 7:50?

Well, the only solution for us french people to watch it on 23rd is to go on a website which livestreams BBC One...

If it's going to be screening simultaneously in Australia with Britain... Doesn't that mean we're going to have to wake up at 2:30 in the morning...?

Brother's birthday. As much as I love Doctor Who, people come first. I can always record it and watch it later.

My cousin was asking about the times in Poland because he wants to see it when he's on holiday?

Don't think I'll be getting up early to watch it, but I'll probably record it to watch later, seeing as how I won't be home when it's reaired that night.

I'm on holiday in France when it's on, what channel is it available on (if it is) and at what time?

You lucky people. We French don't even have the cinema broadcasts. Been trying for weeks to tweak my satellite receiver to get BBC in time for the 23rd, to no avail.

Great, it will be on at 9:50 PM in Romania. Not that anyone is broadcasting it, I'm going to watch a live stream online.

I'm gonna have to wait till Monday the 25, then my friends and I are going to see it in the theater.

@AshleyMarieStevens According to the BBC America website, it is on at 8/7c. So in the Pacific and Eastern time zones, it is on at 8pm. Central and mountain, 7pm. 

Why do I live in the west coast? I have to wait 3 hours longer! Ah well, it is worth it. :)

Wholocked> I'm off to the cinema to see it. Will BBC 1 or 3 have the extras too? I can't find it in the tv listings .

@TomChin I've just seen the New TV Guide and it's not in there, but the only final of a show on PRIME is 'Antiques Roadshow' on Sunday 24 August. I would presume Doctor Who will take over that 7.30 slot from Sunday 31 August

@TomChin Yeah, It's a bit rough leaving out the first Country outside UK to ever broadcast Doctor Who :(

I think Day was at something like 5:50am here. So not quite.

@OlleDes Doctor Who is on France 4 in France, but I don't think it'll be on at the same time, unless they change their minds. They aired Time of the Doctor in March, or was it April? Something silly like that anyway, lol.

@OhLookRocks Wait, it's not possible to get it in France!? I'm on holiday when the show starts and I NEED to watch it!

I know how it feels. And the worst thing is I always get my hopes up for nothing.

@DrOswald @TomChin Doctor who has been on Thursdays at 8.30pm in NZ since Matt took over. REALLY hope it goes back to Sundays now though!!!

@MattRose1 @DrOswald @TomChin they didn't simulcast the 50th aniversarry and I was hoping Prime will simulcast the upcoming episode but I'm doubting it. I might just watch it live on the BBC iPlayer
