No HD Doctor Who for BBC watchers

This one goes out to all of our peeps across the pond who receive BBC HD. It doesn't look like you will be getting Doctor Who in high-def anytime soon. The producers are blaming the amount of special effects found in each episode as the reason. We can kind of understand where they are coming from 'cause all those sci-fi staples like glowing laser beams and random teleportation sure look fancy so they must cost a bunch. We feel for our British HDTV-loving brethren every Sunday night when Battlestar Galactic comes on good 'ol SDTV.
