As The Guardian announces,Â Charlie Brooker, Steven Moffat and Ruth Jones will be among the speakers at this year’sÂ MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television FestivalÂ where the MacTaggart lecture will be delivered by Elisabeth Murdoch. The article also says that the opening episode of the seventh seriesÂ of Doctor Who is to be screened during that event (it will happen 23-25th August 2012).
Doctor Who TV says thatÂ a BBC broadcast shortly after (of the first episode of Doctor Who series 7) seems likely.
Last year,Â Letâ€™s Kill HitlerÂ was shown at the same festival on 26th August. The episode premiered on BBC1 the next day. If the same thing were to happen this year, then we could be looking atÂ Saturday 25th August, which is a bank holiday weekend.
