    According to Ganymede and Titan, whilst Part 1 is in a 30 minute timeslot, parts 2&3 are in 40 minute timeslots! This means they're LONGER than normal Dwarf! :-D:-D:-D:-D

    I can't vouch for the accuracy of this, but G&T are very reliable.

    Your thoughts?

    Or, perhaps, they could be looking at the ratings winner coming up, gaining lots of interest, and have decided to plonk 5 minute ad-breaks on either side and inbetween rather than the usual 3 1/2.

    Even if the ads breaks are longer, that's still more Dwarf. And, like Andrew said in another topic, they aren't going to stick a 23 minute show in a forty minute time slot, in turn showing 17 minutes of commercials. That's not even legal (yay!).

    I'm not sure why it'd be illegal, that'd make infomercials outlaws, but I don't know about these things.

    Does seem strange that, to pull Andrew out of the air again, that the final episode he has already seen, had already been locked off I assume in the edit at 23 minutes, and now it's a 40 minute slot?

    Well these are certainly the slots which the online Radio Times are showing as. 30 Min on the Friday, 40 Min on the Sat and Sun (Monday is not available yet).

    Oooh! I'm so excited all 6 of my nipples are tingling!!!

    Hopefully they won't be full of ads just to increase the time :-(

    But they just add to the tension and excitement :-D
