      This Week In Doctor Who
      July 3/4, 2009 - Vol 12, No 27
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide since 1998.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      This Week In Doctor Who has been proud to be associated with Outpost Gallifrey in one form or another since July 1998 when this column began. Thanks for all the glorious years.

      Quiet week for Doctor Who (Torchwood gets most of the excitement - see Torchwood This Week). There is an interesting bit of consolidation, though. Remember how BBC Entertainment has spread through the Eastern Hemisphere? Some new territories but also subdividing old BBC Prime ground? With the goal of having the channel tailored with unique schedules in every country? Well, BBC Entertainment India has been shut down, and Indian audiences are now getting merged into BBC Entertainment Asia. They're probably getting a better deal this way (certainly Doctor Who and Torchwood-wise), but it is odd to see this pushback from the slow march to having every country on its own schedule.

      For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media http://www.c21media.net .

      Listings for North and South America are in This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere. Sarah Jane Adventures, K9 and Podcasts are in This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs. Torchwood info is in Torchwood This Week.

      I'm not entirely sure on some of these start times - seem like odd changes during the month

      17 July 7:20AM and (late) 3:50AM CET 3-00 "The Runaway Bride"
      Beginning with 19 July everything seems to shift 2 hours later without reason. I'm assuming that's an error for now, especially with Primeval episode listings mixed in with Doctor Who.
      19 July 7PM and 2:10AM, 25 July 2:40PM, 26 July 5:05AM CET 3-09 "The Family Of Blood" pt 2 of 2 (recheck time)
