One of the things that I've been pointing out to people is that it's not at all unusual for television shows to take eighteen months or so to cross from the BBC to America. Obviously, something like Doctor Who
, which has an existing fan base, any delay is considered unacceptable to the fan base, but when you have a series that people aren't aware of in this country, like Sea Of Souls
, no one even notices that the episodes that are soon to air on BBC America
originally aired on the BBC in February of 2004 -- Eighteen Months ago.
Note, by that standard, we're unlikely to see Doctor Who
on American television until October of 2006. And for those of us more impatient, there are always region 2 DVDs....
