In the home market, maybe it's too early to start hyping this.

For markets outside the UK, it's not too early at all. In fact, it's getting to be too late in some ways. American television series usually have their debut dates locked in months in advance and commercials on the airwaves six to eight weeks in advance.

I realize that BBC1 is the dog and everyone else is the tail, but BBC1 isn't wagging the tail when it needs to be wagging.

But the date IS locked in. And one could make the case that the Doctors Revisited is BBCA's way of leading to the anniversary.

Does any Doctor Who fan NOT know when the anniversary is going to happen?

Mr Awe
Yea, I honestly don't understand why anyone expects much (if anything) with over a month left to go.

Joe Average viewer is who the marketing is aimed at, and they don't schedule their viewing over a month in advance (Those of us who know it's coming November 23 will be there regardless what the trailer shows us, and we've had our viewing of it scheduled pretty much for a couple of years now, LOL)

You start the hype months in advance, and it really will be a case of the hype dying out and/or being unable to live up to the hype. Also, you'll end up with Joe average viewer thinking it must've already aired and is a repeat, by the time it finally does air if you get them all worked up months in advance

LOL, Christopher, that comic panel is so true for some folks, it seems

I don't disagree on this point. I don't mind if we don't get a trailer until the usual timescale. Only on the fact they hype and when we get it it's nothing. Hype for something worth hyping not for a piddly little hashtag.
OK, that's a good point!

No, in the US, they wouldn't normally hype a specific show months before it airs. The date might be locked in months in advance, but they're not usually hyping it at that point.

How much notice do some of you think the average viewer needs to remember to watch a TV programme from the comfort of their own house?! I texted a friend last night to tell him the new series of Homeland was about to start on RTE in 5 minutes and he immediately recorded it.

Oh I don't know. I used to tell my sister in law weeks in advance, then a fortnight in advance, then a week in advance and sometimes a couple of days before and she'd still manage to miss it. Though if you think about it trailers are being shown now for shows that don't start till next year (OK, they're in "Original British Drama" trailers) and we're getting teasers for films that aren't out for another year. It's not as if it's unheard of to tell people well in advance.

Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

Films I understand. Going to the cinema can take a lot of effort, depending on where you live, if you need a babysitter etc. TV - you sit on your ass and change channel via remote control or record via whatever device you prefer.

I'm just slightly mystified by the argument that goes along the lines of 'if they don't start promoting this show months in advance, nobody is going to know about it.'

Edit - it occurs also: the 'original British drama' type ads are also slightly different in that they're trying to raise awareness of new shows and interest people in something they haven't previously heard of. Whereas DW is known to pretty much any TV viewer - whether they love it or hate it.

That sounds like it's more on her, you did the advertising and she missed it. Is that your fault or hers?

50 years since Kennedy was shot. I just wish there were more commercials about it.

My fault, apparently, at least that's what she told me.
