      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - September 15, 2004
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 7, No 37

      Outpost Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com reported late last
      week that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)
      http://www.cbc.ca is the first overseas broadcaster to buy rights to
      the new Doctor Who episodes, ordering them sight unseen. Doctor Who
      is expected to be among the shows ptiched to broadcasters at the
      Mipcom convention in France in October. The sales information
      (including many spoilers) is on the new series news page on Outpost

      KUED Salt Lake City http://www.kued.org has confirmed that they are
      leaving the 5th Doctor era of stories early and jumping to mid-4th
      Doctor, starting with The Invisible Enemy on September 18. The Tom
      Baker stories will air in production order, not broadcast order.
      Maryland Public TV http://www.mpt.org is also jumping to an earlier
      point in the Doctor Who story rotation on the 18th, going to Patrick
      Troughton's stories with The Tomb Of The Cybermen.

      The American Who online radio show http://www.americanwho.net
      reports record downloads of its most recent episode. 702 as of 6AM
      EDT Wednesday September 15. The episode, dubbed "The Great Dalek
      Debate!" until it went online on September 11, features an extended
      interview with Rob Shearman, a writer on the new series. Daleks and
      other topics are discussed.

      ABC Australia http://www.abc.net.au/tv changed the start time of
      several Doctor Who episodes to 6PM at short notice due to coverage
      of Federal Election 2004. It looks like Doctor Who will begin
      earlier on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until the election on 9 October.
