      This Week In Doctor Who
      February 27, 2010 - Vol 13, No 8
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide since 1998.

      Well, it has been an interesting week for Doctor Who broadcasting.

      A trailer for the new series aired as promised last Saturday on BBC One and
      HD. This trailer mentioned Doctor Who's premiere at Easter. The same trailer
      was on BBC America's website, with the word Easter replaced by Spring.

      The trailer then caused controversy when a version of it aired on Sunday
      which said the premiere was Saturday 3 April (no start time). Normally, when
      a TV station lists the day that a show will air, this is confirmation of the
      air date for the show. Ah, but it seems that version of the trailer aired by
      accident. The BBC has officially *not* confirmed the airdate. Doctor Who is
      still up in the air - ITV can't schedule against us, we win, ha ha ha. That
      said, the 3rd of April is the only Saturday of the Easter weekend, and your
      range for Easter dates is pretty much Good Friday 2 April to Easter Monday 5
      April. Eventually things will be confirmed.

      The mention of Spring instead of Easter brought dread to Americans, fearful
      that BBC America would give up on airing episodes right with the UK (The End
      Of Time Part One and Part Two were 1 day behind the UK) and slack again.
      Especially since BBC America insisted that the show Survivors would air all
      12 episodes in order in the Saturday 9PM Eastern slot (the most likely slot
      for Doctor Who). Well, BBC America has given us a date now - Saturday 17
      April. And since BBC One won't commit to an airdate yet, we can't even say
      for sure if there is a delay between the UK and the US - though probably
      there will be a 2 week wait if the 3 April date for the UK is correct. No
      timeslot for Doctor Who yet.

      SPACE mentioned on their podcast for 23 February that they needed to wait
      for the BBC to schedule Doctor Who for SPACE to schedule, but SPACE would be
      "soon after" the BBC, and hoped to have Doctor Who on Saturday night. SPACE
      managed to air 3 of the specials on the same weekends as BBC America, so
      most people will assume that SPACE will also start the new episodes on 17
      April. However, we have no confirmation.

      Not a peep from ABC in Australia or Prime in New Zealand. In previous years,
      these networks have started airing the full series anywhere from May to July
      based on the best time with their schedules.

      I plan to put out my thoughts on how the schedules are turning out in the
      next few days, after I've had more time to evaluate all of this. Many will
      remember my missive last year about the problems with Doctor Who
      broadcasting. My first point (and the only one that anyone paid any
      attention to) was the belief in simultaneous broadcasting around the world.
      We wound up with a podcasting summit on the issue, and indeed many of those
      podcasters are going over the topic this weekend at the Gallifrey
      convention - hello guys, sorry I'm not there. But the other issues, some of
      which would help to mitigate the problems of episodes NOT airing
      simultaneously - they could bear with repeating. So, look for my thoughts
      during the week as a separate note.

      In other premiere news:

      SciFi Channel Spain will be the first broadcaster I know of to air the last
      3 Doctor Who specials dubbed in a local language. (The Next Doctor and
      Planet Of The Dead have aired dubbed in France and the Netherlands.) SciFi
      Channel Spain is currently airing the 2008 episodes (along with repeats of
      the earlier Eccleston/Tennant episodes). For the last 3 weeks of March, they
      will double up episodes:
      Journey's End (a 45 minute hacked up version) and 2008 Christmas episode
      The Next Doctor (a 45 minute hacked up version) on 15 March.
      Planet Of The Dead (apparently uncut) and The Waters Of Mars (apparently
      uncut) on 22 March.
      The End Of Time (both episodes, apparently uncut, though part 2 will have to
      be commercial free with that time slot) on 29 March.

      BBC Entertainment Scandanavia and BBC Entertainment South Africa will start
      airing Doctor Who Series 30 in early April. BBCE SA will air Voyage Of The
      Damned on Sunday 4 April, BBCE Scanadnavia will follow on Monday 5 April,
      with both stations airing new episodes on Sundays thereafter, with exact
      times in the listings.

      The official cast list for the 2010 Doctor Who series:

      The Doctor: Matt Smith
      Amy Pond: Karen Gillan

      In keeping with new showrunner Stephen Moffat's view that the new episodes
      are the 31st Series of Doctor Who, TWIDW has been renumbering everything to
      be consistent. I am tweaking my efforts. Now in the listings episodes will
      go S (for Series or Season - I'm not getting into that argument) followed by
      the number from 1 (for the first Hartnell episodes) to 31 (for this year of
      Matt Smith). Then there will be Ep (for episode), followed by the number it
      was in the season or series.

      Examples:
      S01, Ep 01 "An Unearthly Child" pt 1 of 4
      S15, Ep 25 "The Invasion Of Time" pt 5 of 6
      S27, Ep 01 "Rose"
      S30, Ep 00 "Voyage Of The Damned"
      S31, Ep 01 "The Eleventh Hour"

      If you are a fan of Doctor Who on PBS then check out the PBS section - it
      looks like at least 5 stations are actually trusting Doctor Who with pledge
      nights in March where fans can show their support. Doctor Who has been
      handled like a burden for PBS stations instead of a blessing for a long
      time, so this is slightly encouraging.

      Due to technical issues I am still far behind on podcasts, and plan to bring
      that section back in a week or two when I might be able to keep track of
      them again.

      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 .
