So, uh.

I haven't used Twitch before. Is there a rewind function somewhere that I'm not seeing? Is there a way to go back and watch from earlier in the stream?

Because it sure looks like there isn't.

And the combination of "serialized show that's not friendly to jumping on in the middle" plus "no way to go back to an earlier episode" plus "the stream starts at 11 AM on fucking weekdays" leads me to ask the question, what the fuck is the point of this? Who is it for?

Although I have to say, "It is 2018 but technology is behaving in more or less the same way as it did in 1963" is pretty much the most Doctor Who thing I can think of.

I can't comment on jumping around in this stream specifically. It does exist as a feature on twitch but I'm sure they have ways to turn it off for these types of 'events'.

But for the time, isn't that basically prime time in the UK?

VODs were apparently either disabled or deleted for this channel, yes. I suppose the single scheduled showing of a lot of these episodes was part of the licensing agreement.

"It is 2018 but technology is behaving in more or less the same way as it did in 1963, because laws" is definitely peak Who.

This is really weird. I like the idea of a twitch stream that endlessly shows Doctor Who eps, though. Kinda wish this was that, and not this.
