      The schedule for The Scream Of The Shalka has come out in the last
      week. Scream will be 6 episodes, premiering one per Thursday at
      12:30PM GMT on November 13. That's 7:30AM EST, 4:30AM PST, 1:30PM
      CET, 2:30AM CAT (Africa), and 11:30PM AEDT. Scream Of The Shalka,
      for those who forgot, is BBCi's http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/
      animated Doctor Who story featuring Richard E. Grant as the official
      9th Doctor.

      As November approaches, the 40th anniversary plans for TV stations
      have become fairly clear. US TV stations airing Doctor Who will
      continue their regular story rotations - no specials planned on any
      US Doctor Who affiliates. UKTV Australia's November schedule should
      be clear on Saturday when they finally put their November listings
      online. And it's too soon to tell if any overseas stations like BBC
      Prime http://www.bbcprime.com will bring the Doctor back for the
      anniversary. Here's what we know of anniversary programming.

      The 1996 TV Movie - Future Airings:

      universe, sometimes you have to be more evil than the bad guys.

      The Black Guardian's revenge continues as the TARDIS breaks up,

      The 4th Doctor and Romana take a road trip to Paris, where they
      manage a good 10 minutes worth of vacation before having to deal
      with murder, mayhem, and a plot to erase history. By my count, this
      is the second longest on-screen vacation the Doctor actually manages
      in the series, behind only the Doctor's portion of The Romans.
