Okay people,

BBC America will be 2 weeks behind the BBC. I have a feeling most will watch via the BBC before it shows in the U.S.

So, the question is, do we allow spoilers in the episode threads?

Or do we have separate episode threads for those who watched via BBC and merge it into the main episode thread once BBC America shows the episode?

I see 4 options:

1 - One thread that allows spoilers
2 - One thread with spoiler tags
3 - A BBC Spoiler thread that will be merged into main thread after airing on BBC America
4 - A BBC Spoiler thread that will be left seperate.

Better to just have one thread with spoiler tags. Probably just a few comments on each episode anyways, no use having 2 threads for each episode.

I thought you could not watch on BBC from the states.

Normally you can't, but there are ways to accomplish it *cough*torrent*cough*, that many fans will use to see it ahead of time. Especially if there is a big gap between it showing in Britain and here.

BBC America has reduced the gap from what it was on SyFy, for example we got Last of the Time Lords 1 day later, but the upcoming series will have a 2 week delay, which is plenty of time to send people to alternate means.
