Doctor Who Christmas special

Doctor Who Christmas special

I was wondering when this year's Christmas specail would be available for viewing online and on On Demand. I wasn't able to watch last night and I was looking forward to seeing it today.

It doesn't appear to be on either place yet.

Right there with you dear. ;-)

 

 It aired last night, and should bne available today. Last year I had to post the same thread to get it put up. Hopefully this will have the same effect.

We don't control the VOD content from channels, we need them to give us permission and provide the episode before we can put it up for VOD viewing.

Normally it is a couple days for BBC shows.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas special

We hope to have it up online later today.

 

Please note that when it shows up it will on http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Doctor-Who-Specials/7696686238791699112/full-episodes instead of the main series page.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas special

Thanks for the update.

It does seem to be up now. (At least on the app.)

Re: Doctor Who Christmas special

I clicked the link and also searched under doctor who specials. It's not there. So, what am I missing?

I'm going to answer my own question. 

 

Here's the link:

http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Doctor-Who/4876326581887402112/full-episodes#episode=809452399712...

 

And it is at the bottom of the season seven list.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas special

This special was available on the Xfinity phone app yesterday and is now gone.  This episode doesn't appear at the Specials link http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Doctor-Who-Specials/7696686238791699112/full-episodes#episode=769...

 

or the general episode link

http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch/Doctor-Who/4876326581887402112/full-episodes#episode=809452399712...

 

Does anyone know where it is?

 

Thanks,

Scroll down to Season 7 Episode 0.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas special

Nope, it is not appearing.  The last thing listed is Season 7, episode 14 (The Name of the Doctor)

Official Employee

Re: Doctor Who Christmas special

Not the last episode of the season, the first episode of the season. Since it doesn't officially have an episode number it's listed where Episode 0 would be. The episode is highlighted in the screenshot of the website below. It should be similarly placed on the apps. (Yes, I agree it is confusing.)
