      The 41st anniversary of Doctor Who is Tuesday, November 23. In
      Canada BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca will air parts 1+2 of Mawdryn
      Undead at the wee undead hours of the night. In Australia ABC
      http://www.abc.net.au/tv will air part 4 of Terror Of The Zygons.

      UKTV Gold http://www.ukgold.tv will skip the Hartnell, Troughton,
      and Pertwee stories again when they start their new cycle of
      stories. Robot starts on 8 January. Based on the number of McCoy
      stories left, it appears that Doctor Who will take a 3 week break to
      finish 2004 and start 2005.

      New Hampshire Public TV http://www.nhptv.org aired its last Doctor
      Who episode on November 13th, ending a 24 year run and leaving no
      more Doctor Who stations in New England.
