Calling all Whovians of India… 50th Anniversary Meet

Dear Whovians in India,

As you probably know by now, India will not be screening the 50th Anniversary show in theatres or on any channel here. Our sincerest apologies for the delay in getting back to you; we’ve been (and are still) trying continuously to persuade BBC reps and various broadcast partners to screen it here in India. Unfortunately, all we’ve received are flat out ‘no’s or polite British non-committal responses. Torrents zindabad! it is, then.

In this series of posts, I’m going to try to answer that by showing you my favorite UI tweaks and (atleast attempting to) giving you the links to the repos for the same. 

Let’s start by changing the stock UI just a wee bit. I should add here, that at the moment I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan, as you can tell from the article I posted previously here :: A Whovian’s Tale, or Why Doctor Who is the Best TV Show in the History of the Universe.

You’ll know why soon enough 🙂
