     The "Last" is longer . . .

    Doctor Who NewsAs user daveac has noticed in his television listings for Saturday, 30 June 2007, episode 13 is indeed slightly longer than usual. This squares with hints Julie Gardner gave in a March podcast for The Stage, and indeed Russell T. Davies' flat statement in Doctor Who Magazine #384.

    However, a mystery still seems to lie in the difference of the allotted times for the initial broadcast on Saturday, wherein 50 minutes are given on BBC1, and the repeat broadcasts on BBC3, where "Last of the Time Lords" is afforded 55 minutes.

    Freema Ageyman's main fansite is quoting a run-time of 51.5 minutes.

    Does this wide range of "time slots" mean anything about the version one might see on a given evening? Are there multiple copies? Why allow 55 minutes if the episode is only about 52? What will this mean for the episode's upcoming broadcast on the American SciFi Channel? As of today, these are all unanswered questions, sure to force dedicated Doctor Who fans to tape each broadcast and check for possible differences.

    It may depend on whether the transmission time is exactly on the specified time (rounded in 5 minute increments) or possibly a few minutes off the interval.

    What was the hint Julie gave in her interview? I mean, I conducted that interview and I have NO idea what you're talking about!

    Did I read somewhere they had filmed 3 different endings?

    Or is it that on BBC 3 they will show the full end titles - maybe even a teaser mini-trailer for the Christmas special?

    Maybe even a glimpse of Kylie :-)

    Cheers, daveac

    BBC Three has a minute-long news programme (called, appropriately, 60
    Seconds) at the top of each hour, but that doesn't get billed every hour.

    That's probably going to be enough for the programme's extended length to be
    subject to rounding errors -- TV schedule listings tend to be rounded to the
    nearest five minutes.
