The Doctor Comes To BBC HD
But I hope my instincts are right that for many of you the content that we are able to bring you in HD is what determines whether you want to watch the channel.
I can confirm that yes, the Dr Who Special broadcasting over Easter weekend will be the first appearance of the HD Doctor, and he will be a regular guest on BBC HD (alongside the existing Doctors). You can also catch the Dr Who Prom again on Saturday, and there's a chance to see Finding Nemo in HD quality.
This summer alongside the drama of Wimbledon, we'll also have tennis from Queens' Club (well, just before the lawn tennis event actually) and we'll have the next series of Dragons' Den in HD providing ample opportunity to see the sweat and tears of the entrepreneurs in detail never before possible. The coming weeks will also see a brand new series of children's show Kerwhizz, acclaimed daytime drama Missing, and more of the new series of Robin Hood, together with some fresh Saturday night entertainment shows.
I know there will always be a host of frustrations around what is not made in HD and therefore shown on the channel - frustrations which I regularly share - but we are working across the BBC to bring you the brightest and the best of the television we're responsible for, and to create a channel which combines familiar programmes with those which can most effectively showcase the qualities that only HD brings to the screen.
Do watch, and I hope enjoy.
