According to the teaser on youtube it's going to be "feature-length", looking forward to it.

Re: August 23rd

BBC America says that "Deep Breath" is "feature length."

I don't know how to interpret that. A 75- to 90-minute episode sans commercials? That could be why we're only getting 12 episodes instead of 13; the premiere is actually double-length.

Hopefully. Although technically isn't 60 minutes feature-length, too?

Re: August 23rd

This is hardly shocking news, with an August release date scheduled I think many if not most expected it to air the saturday preceeding the Bank Holiday.

Good news, but I wish we could've gotten a proper trailer.

No.
Perhaps it is technically speaking, at least according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feature_length

according to their rules a feature length motion picture must have a running time of more than 40 minutes.

So is a 60 minute TV show feature length? Or are we saying that because a TV show a different rule applies?
