      Paste that link into your browser if it doesn't come through right.
      It's an official promotional postcard for the new series. Looks
      rather nice in my opinion. It's got Christopher Eccleston, Billie
      Piper, the TARDIS, the new logo, a link to the BBC's Doctor Who
      website - http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho , and other nice images.

      Sci-Fi Overdrive http://www.scifioverdrive.com is noting the 41st
      anniversary of Doctor Who by focusing the 3rd hour of each episode
      in November on the series. This week Charles Martin interviews
      Doctor Who actors who are on the Sci-Fi Sea Cruise as of this
      column's publication. This week's edition also has an interview with
      Laura Palmer at BBC Worldwide Americas in the first hour discussing
      the Lost In Time DVD release. From the same people - the new
      American Who http://www.americanwho.net episode is online, with a
      Peter Purves interview and an affectionate look at the new Doctor
      Who logo.

      DirecTV http://www.directv.com subscribers in the Cedar Rapids, IA
      TV market now have the option of subscribing to their local channels
      through the service, including KIIN 12, an Iowa Public TV
      http://www.iptv.org affiliate. A 2nd dish is required to get those
      local channels. It now means that viewers in that area can see
      Doctor Who via their antennas, cable, and both of the major
      satellite companies (Dish Network http://www.dishnetwork.com ). The
      Quad Cities in Iowa & Illinois are tentatively expected to get local
      channels through DirecTV as of November 9.
