Dr. Who is in SD. I said that someone on the Dr. Who Restoration Team mentioned that 50i material released on Blu-ray is being converted to 60i (probably for universal playback in both US/Worldwide displays, as US displays are 99% 60Hz based, while as you know in Europe for example you have 60/50 Hz capable ones), and probably I should have been more clear that the info wasn't refering to Dr. Who material, but to 1080i50 material in general (while the source of that info just happens to be someone from the RT).
just when I was starting to do a little dance. Man would I love Dr.Who on BD, I have not bought the new series because I don’t do DVD any more.

Yeah, it's that way for me also (it's actually region free even though it says region B) but the US version shows up as 1080/24p like I expected. Edit: The aspect ratios are different as well.

Uh.... 1080i60 and 1080p30 are the same frame rate. If the source material was recorded as 1080p30, you will not see any interlacing artifacts as long as you are not trying to deliberately de-interlace the signal.

The only time you would see a artifacts would be if it was shot in i60.

All flat-panel TV and panel-based projectors only work with deinterlaced images. Meaning that virtually all HD viewing systems in use will force deinterlacing.
