What's so irritating about this is not just the frame rate to me: it's the fact that the music has been adversely affected and that the performances of the actors have lost energy due to this alteration. I'll be buying the DVDs of the SD seasons and the 1080i BDs of the HD seasons. Regarding Day of the Doctor, I may just have to get the DVD, if that hasn't been slowed down as well. So the music issues on the BDs of Day of the Doctor are apparent on both stereo mixdown systems and on 5.1 systems? I seriously hope the old releases don't go OOP soon, since I'm really strapped for cash right now.
