BBC releasing every episode of Top of the Lake: China Girl to the iPlayer at once

We learned just the other day that the second series of Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake will start its UK linear broadcast at 9pm on Thursday 27 July. Now Aunty Beeb has discreetly announced that the whole series will be made available for streaming, starting just after the first episode ends its old-school airing.

Here’s how their press release puts it:

It airs on BBC Two from Thursday 27 July at 9pm. The full series will be available on BBC iPlayer from 10pm on Thursday 27 July.

Which basically means I can stay up all night and chain the series, and you could too. See you there?
