Torchwood Miracle Day  
Never thought I'd have cause to use this icon again.

So, remember how RTD and team Torchwood were assuring us that it was still British and nothing would change even though Starz were producing it now? Hmm.

Miracle Day airs in the US tomorrow (I believe, please correct me if this is wrong) but it doesn't air in the UK until Thurs 15th, almost a week later. *points to icon* In a world where US shows are aired in the UK one day later and Doctor Who airs on the same day on both sides of the pond I just don't see the justification for this at all.

Not on PTB. Not on at all.

And don't forget there are going to be different edits for the US and UK. *grumble*

Starz have first dibs due to stumping up most of the money and aunty beeb just likes to drag her heels.

*joins the grumbling*

I love the marked difference in the advertising - Starz have been showing trailers and shouting about the first air date for months whereas I've not seen a full trailer on the BBC for just Torchwood (only that multi-drama one) and the only reason I found out the air date was because I spotted John and Eve on the cover of next week's Radio Times this afternoon!

Icon love btw! :)

There just really is no really, really good reason for this. The wait between air dates OR the different edits. Blergh.

Canada is showing Miracle Day on the Space channel on July 09. O.o So, I'm just a day late from the US...but I don't know if we'll be getting the US cut or the BBC cut...^_^;

EDIT: Just found out, Sat will show the BBC version, while the repeat on Tues will be the US version. O.o

I think I'll skip tomorrow's dl'ing and watch on sat instead. :D
