This was really striking to me, too. I think it's the first time ever for a full-length "Who" episode, though some (like the found footage episode early in Capaldi's run) have had modified title sequences.NO OPENING TITLES????
I watched the version with extra material and as far as I would tell it didn't have any extra BBC material. What is did have was during the ad breaks parts of the NYCC Doctor Who panel.I guess the only simulcast part of it was that it started at the same time.
At 8 PM tonight they have extra material?
If you live in Ottawa, you know it is!I was happy with it. Not thrilled however because I feel that the stories had become overly repetitive at the end of Tennant's run. I had barely made it through Smith's run, and dropped the show midway through Capaldi's first season. I'll give Whittaker a chance since she's a very credible Doctor, but I also need to see a new approach in the storytelling.
Also, spotted during the show. This is a real place!
