Who/SDoaCG DVD & Showtime question?  
So with this new job, I'll finally be able to buy the Who DVDs as well as SDoaCG in January, but the thing I want to know is are the episodes complete? I've watched the BBC/ITV versions of the shows, not the US airing on Sci-Fi (which I know cut minutes from Who), nor Showtime's airing of SDoaCG. So I wanted to make sure ... are the episodes on the US Who DVDs (which has Sci-Fi listed on the box art work) the FULL episodes as aired on BBC as opposed to the edited Sci-Fi airings, and are the Showtime airings (thus what will be on the DVD) of SDoaCG the same as the ITV versions?

I just want to make sure I don't shell out the money for the DVDs and then not get the full episodes.

Thanks in advance! :D

The Who DVDs in the US are the same as the ones aired in the UK. I bought mine from Best Buy. As far as Call Girl, they are not the same. There are two versions of the show because of music rights. There's the ITV version and there's the DVD version. The DVD version has different music from the ITV one but that's it - no other changes. Showtime aired the DVD version of the show and it's that version that will be released in the states. I'm hoping that's not the case for series 2. I do have Showtime so I'll have to see in January if they kept the same music.

Thanks. Fortunately, I'm not in love nor do I associate any particular music with anything on SDoaCG because I've only watched each episode once so that will be fine. Phew!

I adored the music in series 1 and was quite upset it was changed. Oh well. I still have the ITV version on my laptop.

Ah, sorry. For me, unless it's a piece of a music that is highly associated with a couple of mine, I just don't really care. I know I'm in the minority in that regard generally.
