      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - May 26, 2004

      Christopher Eccleston's Doctor has his English Rose. Billie Piper
      has been cast as the 19 year old Rose Tyler in the upcoming Doctor
      Who series. There are many stories about this news on the web - go
      to http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho and http://www.gallifreyone.com
      for the full details. The TARDIS duo is set.

      The Starz!/Encore suite of premium channels http://www.starz.com in
      the US have acquired rights to the 1996 Doctor Who movie starting in
      June. Subscribers to the suite of Starz & Encore movie channels will
      have many chances to see the movie uncut and commercial free.
      Looking at the June schedule, the Mystery Channel will be the
      primary home of the TV Movie for now. I'd expect it could pop up on
      any channel in the suite where it doesn't violate the format.

      Known upcoming air dates:
      Thursday 3 June 9:30AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Thursday 3 June 4:45PM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
