Series 8 Australian Air Date

ABC TV has confirmed that the Australian air date for Series 8 will be on Sunday August 24, with the episode entitled “Deep Breath”.

The series will once again be fast-tracked from the UK, scheduled to be aired in the UK on August 23rd (which would be early in the morning of Sunday 24th here in Australia).

In the days of often illegal downloading of popular television shows being a common problem here in Australia due to the time we sometimes have to wait to see our favorite shows, it’s great to see the ABC realizing the popularity of Doctor Who and continue to air it as close as possible to it’s UK broadcast time, while still maintaining a prime-time screening time here in Australia. No mention as yet if there will be an earlier iView screening, but will keep you update on that.

A teaser trailer can also be seen on the BBC’s official YouTube page.

    We’ve been trying to find out if there’s going to be an iView morning screening but it looks like the info hasn’t been made available yet. The evening air time will be 7:40pm.

    Actually spoke too soon, we just came across some information from the ABC that the episode will be screened at 4:50am in the morning, and will be shown on iView throughout the day before the evening broadcast.
