I'll say this for the BBC though, they've done a first rate job marketing/promoting the hell out of the whole 50th anniversary thing.
A special on the "science of Doctor Who", documentaries, a docu-drama on the origins of the show, news stories, a DW celebrity edition of game show "Pointless", talk shows, endless inserts bewteen programming etc, etc.
I really hope CBS/Paramount take heed of it, pull out the stops, and really go to town when it's Trek's turn.
I agree, BBC have nailed this. Let's hope Trek (my personal favourite of the two) can go one better.
