Advertisements It drove me batty. It was so distracting that while watching it just now, I paused halfway through to google "Doctor Who Mummy Orient feels like filmed on video" to see whether anyone else felt similarly. (Ironically, your post was high in the returned search results). I rationalized that maybe it was done intentionally because it gave it more of the feel of an old classic serial. But watching the promo for next week it seemed to share the same effect. If it's truly a BBCA thing, then I think I may start watching on iTunes.
