Ah, I found it. V (the new one) aired on ABC - that is, non-premium, broadcast TV - from 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Tuesday nights. This is a scene that quite honestly didn't really strike me as out of the ordinary.

The reason it's a) noticeable and b) somewhat unusual, is because it's Doctor Who. V isn't a kids show. DW (historically at any rate) is.

I didn't get the vibe the Doctor was calling for Rory because he thought Amy was after him.

Considering that, I'd call this (and probably all of Matt Smith DW) a conscious effort to change, rather than a slip or laxity.

Good point - 11 never really seemed to mind letting tension build between himself and Amy, especially if it was at the expense of discomfiting Rory.

Perhaps I am remembering the old series with kid's eyes (and I did drop out about the time Tom Baker left).

His calling Rory is a continuation of the ep where Amy gets all horny and is all over him, so he drags her off to see Rory. Since then he's been a bit leery of her doing that kind of thing.

Subsequent to that, though, he was awfully familiar with her at her wedding(!) although admittedly not in a way that could be called lecherous.

To our american members: where are you catching Who? I haven't seen it on tv in a long time (on PBS).

Syfy channel?

BBC America, mostly. Reruns (Eccleston and Tennant) are playing on BBC America every weekday 10:00 am - 11:00 am, and Smith ones are playing somewhere in their "Sci-Fi Saturday" lineup. New season is set to air on BBC America starting 4/23.
