Just heard from my Canadian contacts. Taping of Doctor Who is happening! And thus I breathe a great sigh of relief, followed by a little squeal of fangirlish excitement. It also happens that the DVDs of the show are going to be released in R2 format as early as June, which gives me another chance to watch the episodes, if necessary, since I do have a region-free player. But if I can just see them once, I'll be happy enough to wait for the extras-laden version, especially if there's a chance of it coming out in R1.
