Although as they're releasing video shot Doctor Who on Blu Ray, I guess there is still room for improvements.

Tbh I was being sarcastic ! , I can't see any difference in these old sitcoms in HD ! However PQ isn't the reason the watch them. Some of the 1960's BW Steptoe and son episodes on Drama are barely of broadcastable quality, but they are still brilliant. The script and actors is eveything, PQ an irrelevance.

Curiously, one channel that would benefit from HD would be the Drama channel, and yet that is the only UKTV channel not in HD at the moment. Why is that?

It does not have a +1 channel either OB as yes it would be nice for viewers to watch it in HD.

I imagine that nothing much will happen in that respect until at least the split between the BBC and UKTV has taken place.

You're right, sorry, I forgot about them! They seem to have disappeared from my radar!! Those two channels appeared to be quite popular when they first launched, but they seem to have regressed over the last few years.
