Doctor Who only runs 45 minutes so that the BBC can sell it to countries who
can't cope with a program that's any longer; ie in order to fit 15 minutes of
commercials in to pad it out to an hour. I'm glad I don't have to put up with
that garbage when I watch it in the UK.
I also agree fully about the recapping and coming up - it can get very wearing,
as though they are talking to idiots... uuuh, I withdraw that remark, it's
obviously true, and a situation of their own making.
