BBC AMERICA: Generosity or Inevitability?

This morning BBC America released last night’s Doctor Who premiere episode of Series 35, (yes, I refuse to call it series 9) “The Magician’s Apprentice” for free to stream on YouTube. We’ve never really seen this type of move from cable TV’s pay-to-view sister of BBC Worldwide. Was this generosity or have they begun to realise that fans are going to stream it regardless? (some even before it graces American screens) Of course fans from places outside the UK applauded BBC America and I myself will give them this; it’s really quite good strategy on their part as they might as well get the glory, be the hero, and maybe hook themselves some future cable subscribers…

Regardless here it is: The Magician’s Apprentice. Enjoy!
