The ABC has confirmed that the new series of Doctor Who will once again be fast tracked for Australian fans, going to air on the 24th August on ABC1.
Sorry if anybody has made their wedding plans based on our earlier incorrect prediction of the 17th August
Here is our previous predictions and our reasons:
Doctor Who Series 8 will (likely) air on the 17th August on the ABC. Why do we say so? Well, starting from tonight (Saturday the 21st June 2014) ABC2 has begun airing repeats of 2 Doctor Who episodes each week starting from the Series 7 opener- Asylum of the Daleks. At this rate they will be up to showing Day of the Doctor and Time of the Doctor on Saturday the 9th August, just in time for a brand new episode to air the following weekend 16th/17th August. If the new tradition of a broadcast on Sunday night- within 24 hours of the British broadcast- is maintained we should be seeing Peter Capaldi's debut on Sunday the 19th of August on the ABC. This fits in with the Doctor Who World Tour promoting the new series being scheduled between the 7th and 19th August with Sydney as one of the stop offs, as wellas a previous announcement that Series 8 will begin some time in August. Bring on August!
