      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - 7 Years And Counting
      July 13, 2005 - Vol 8, No 28
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Thurday 14 July:
      Prime TV New Zealand - 7:30PM - Doctor Who: The End Of The World
      Saturday 16 July:
      ABC Australia - 7:30PM - Doctor Who: The Empty Child
      Sunday 17 July:
      BBC Three 7PM - Doctor Who: Rose (repeat)
      CBC - 7PM - Doctor Who: World War Three (repeat)
      BBC Three 7:45PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: Back From The
      Future (repeat)
      KBS 2 South Korea - 11:15PM - Doctor Who: The Parting Of The Ways

      New Zealand Ratings:
      7 July 7:30PM Rose - 151,000 viewers

      Sweden - SVT http://www.svt.se has purchased Doctor Who. Based on on-
      air comments during a Christopher Eccleston movie, it is believed
      that the show will air Thursdays at 8PM in early 2006. It is unclear
      if it will be SVT 1 or SVT 2.

      New Zealand - Doctor Who got very good ratings for Prime
      http://www.primetv.co.nz on its premiere night. The episode aired
      cropped to 4:3 fullscreen (not the 14:9 letterbox crop which the
      show was filmed to accommodate - important information is being cut
      off). The closing credits aired with no voiceover, allowing viewers
      to hear the music without distraction. The Sunday repeat for Rose
      was a one time thing - catch future episodes on Thursdays or you're
      out of luck till the DVDs come out.

      South Korea - KBS 2 http://www.kbs.co.kr concludes its broadcast of
      the 2005 Doctor Who series this Sunday at 11:15PM. There will be no
      second Doctor Who episode that night. It is unknown if repeats will
      air, or if future series of the show have been purchased.

      Russell T. Davies confirmed in a magazine interview that Doctor Who
      Confidential http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/confidential has been
      renewed for a 2nd 13 episode series. This documentary show
      frequently led the ratings on non-terrestrial channels, beating UK
      premieres for shows like 24 and Enterprise

      United Kingdom - The BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree repeat
      season begins this weekend. The most recent schedule update looks
      like this:
      Sunday 17 July 7PM "Rose"
      Sunday 17 July 7:45PM "Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down episode 1"
      Friday 22 July 9PM "Rose"
      Friday 22 July 9:45PM "Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down episode 1"
      Sunday 24 July 7PM "The End Of The World"
      Saturday 24 July 7:45PM "Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down episode 2"

      Sci-Fi Overdrive's http://www.scifioverdrive.com interview with
      Shannon Patrick Sullivan of A Brief History Of Time (Travel)
      http://www.physics.mun.ca/~sps/drwho.html may not have aired on the
      Lifestyle Talk Radio network - their online archive was for a
      different interview when I checked. It did air on the Business Talk
      Radio network and is in their archive. It was a review and
      conversation about the 2005 series of Doctor Who. If you missed the
      broadcast, or it didn't air on your station, click
      http://archives.warpradio.com/btr/SciFi/071102.MP3 and tune in. 53
      minutes including commercials. LISTENER ADVISORY - while it was a
      very good interview (including a slightly mangled quote of mine), it
      does have slight spoilers for the first 10 episode of the series,
      including the outcome of episode 10 - The Doctor Dances.

      BBC Wales has issued press releases hailing their most successful
      year ever, led by Doctor Who:

      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.

      This Week In Doctor Who is 7 years old. The first edition went out
      July 13, 1998. How times change. Time to stop for a moment and
      reflect on 7 crazy years, especially this last one.

      Now back to the column.
