A final note for today’s ABC iView love-in: the broadcast of the first Matt Smith episode of Doctor Who on iView ahead of its TV debut was a big hit, scoring 112,000 views over the weekend. The show also got more than a million viewers when broadcast on TV on Sunday, suggesting old media isn’t quite dead yet. Another good piece of news for iView fans: Spicks & Specks will be available on the service from this Wednesday, longstanding issues over music rights having finally been resolved.
