Very strange coincidence with that Dr. Who advertisement. I happened to be watching PBS on broadcast TV on a flat screen that can decode the digital
broadcast signal. No connection to anything but an antenna and the electrical outlet.
What adds to the strangeness is that I haven't watched Dr. Who in a long time, in fact I missed the episodes just before and after the Dr. regenerated
into a new character, so I was pretty far behind in the overall story line. Also, I've been, almost exclusively, seeing bicycle parts and accessory
The only thing I think of would be that I've been seeing Dr. Who ads every once and a while, but because I haven't been watching it lately, I had no
reason to acknowledge the ad, must less remember seeing it. So when I happened to watch Dr. Who on TV, it brought the ad to my attention when I went
online and saw it.
That would be the most likely reason , or is it?
Edit to add: I've noticed that if a topic is on TV, that online references to that topic increase after the topic was broadcast. So if Dr. Who is in a
popular trend, I would expect to see more references to it online, including ads.
