Deep Breath for 8:00pm premiere in the UK?Bookmark and Share

Thursday, 10 July 2014 - Reported by Chuck Foster
German broadcaster FOX have now updated their online listings guide for August, and indicate that the first episode of the new series, Deep Breath, is scheduled for the 23rd August at 9:00pm. The BBC have yet to confirm the time that the episode will air on BBC One, but with FOX previously announcing their intention to simulcast the series alongside the United Kingdom, this would suggest that Doctor Who might well be back on the air at the prime time of 8:00pm!

It should be noted, however, that schedules may be subject to change as the broadcast date approaches, and that the 75 minute episode may not be simulcast as anticipated - for the 50th anniversary, the similarly feature-length The Day of the Doctor aired from 7:50pm in the UK with a ten minute delay before commencing in Germany (at 9:00pm local time).

FOX's schedules indicate that they plan to broadcast the final eleventh Doctor adventures The Name of the Doctor, The Day of the Doctor and The Time of the Doctor before the premiere itself, kicking off from 5:45pm local time.
