Too many programmes have been missed recently. By the time the right people push the right buttons, the seven days have expired, and the programme has finished. Aah well. I can just read the good bits in this thread!

Or as Alan said, simply turn on your TV in 15mins and change the channel to BBC3

-- Edit --
Also repeated again on Friday according to http://www.tvguide.co.uk/titlesearch...e=Doctor%20Who

If you download something on iplayer then it doesn't delete itself for a month.

Only if you haven't started watching it. Once you have, then it deletes itself after seven days.

He does flip between emotions quickly & I like how he rabbits on and then changes tack. It's not forced, feels naturally done (good acting, making it look easy). Matt is certainly filliing the role extremely well.

I assumed she was a time traveller in the same way that Rose and now Amy are, that they travelled with the doctor, not that she has her own time travel wrist strap like Captain Jack.

Nice to see I was not alone in spotting the whole jacket off then on then off sequence, hoping it has deeper meanings than a continuity error.

The jacket bit can't be an error as they are two different locations comped together. He loses the jacket on the control room set then has it again on the exterior forest location for just that little bit of dialogue. Well dissapointed if it was a cock-up though! Liked the final scenes in Amy's bedroom, you can't beat a bit of old fashioned farce type comedy just to lighten things up a bit and Moff was right that not all the Doctors and their female companions could ever be just in platonic relations.

Good work not reading and protesting just a little too much. The DVD purchase was brought up.

My broadband isn't good enough to watch iPlayer online - it stops and starts every 30 seconds or so. The only way for me to watch this is to download it and watch via the .wmv file. Now I'll miss this episode until the boxset comes out. And no, I can't change broadband supplier. I was simply moaning that due to technical difficulties, I won't be able to watch this. Simply stating something into the discussion.
How about a recording Freeview box?

Simon Nye (Men behaving badly) and Richard Curtis (Blackadder/Vicar of Dibley/Mr.Bean)

Looks like Karen is on Graham Norton tonight, might be worth a watch. 22:30 on BBC1 and repeated in the early hours of Wed.

The award-winning host returns with his anarchic talk show. Expect the unexpected as top celebrity guests join in the fun with Graham and his irrepressible audience.

Graham is joined by Hollywood actress and singing star Jennifer Lopez, who talks about her glittering career and latest film The Backup Plan; Doctor Who's new assistant Karen Gillan discusses life in the Tardis; and QI and Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies is in the comedy chair. Plus, there's music from Ben's Brother.
I wonder if he will refer to trailergate!

Looks nothing like it, think you're looking a bit too hard for things there.

It was someone on another forum that pointed it out to me. I didn't see it myself.

I can see where they are coming from though. It does look a little like an eye. Just wondered what people on here thought.

I noticed it. It did look like one of those eyes to me.

Just watch this back again; and while you can just make on the jacket (its all shot in a tight headshot), I think its just a continuity error; we all know these scenes are recorded out of order.
