      New Zealand - Prime TV http://www.primetv.co.nz has scheduled Rose
      (first episode) twice this week - Thursday and Sunday at 7:30PM. It
      was not clear as of publication time if the Sunday repeat was a one
      time special event or a regular weekly repeat. There is an
      advertising blitz for the show in New Zealand right now, including
      ads on the buses
      http://nzdwfc.tetrap.com/screenings/prime/bus.html . The long wait
      is over. Doctor Who's on Prime. Time to thank the station by tuning

      UK - A repeat season of the Christopher Eccleston episodes is on the
      way! BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree has Doctor Who back on
      the upcoming schedule. The Doctor Who website
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/news/drwho/2005/07/04/20378.shtml has this

      "Missed an episode? BBC Three will repeat the series on Sundays at
      7PM, with a cut down Confidential at 7:45PM. Initially, there will
      also be a repeat, uh, repeat on Fridays at 9PM - but this slot's not
      been confirmed for all 13 episodes. ... Please note - like the
      weather, schedules can change at a moment's notice."

      *Note - the TWIDW Update sent out this past weekend on the BBC Three
      repeat run was based on Digiguide http://www.digiguide.com and Radio
      Times http://www.radiotimes.com . At the time those sources showed
      that the repeat run would be Saturdays at 7:45PM with repeats
      Wednesdays at 8:15PM. Schedules have updated to reflect the
      information on the BBC website. BBC Three frequently changes their
      schedules, so don't be surprised if the repeats move again at short

      The CBC http://www.cbc.ca/television officially purchased the 2nd
      series of Doctor Who and the Christmas Special, to air very shortly
      after their UK premieres. The press releases:

      Thanks for the information received about Doctor Who on Virgin
      Atlantic flights (column updated to reflect that). I'm still looking
      for information on Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, and British
      Airways. Also, while the BBC has announced sales of the series to
      Denmark and Hungary they haven't said who bought the show in those
      countries. If you know, or if you were the broadcaster, please get
      in contact so we can add the information and cover your broadcasts
      like the rest of the world.

      The BBC Press Office http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media
      http://www.c21media.net often announce when a Doctor Who
      international sale occurs. Worth keeping an eye on, just in case.
