      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Wednesday 17 August:
      BBC Three 8:15PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: Why On Earth?
      Thursday 18 August:
      Prime TV New Zealand - 7:30PM - Doctor Who: The Long Game
      Friday 19 August:
      BBC Three - 9PM - Doctor Who: World War Three (repeat)
      BBC Three - 9:45PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: Why On Earth?
      Saturday 20 August:
      BBC Three - 7:05PM - Doctor Who Confidential: Why On Earth? (repeat)
      Sunday 21 August:
      BBC Three 7PM - Doctor Who: Dalek (repeat)
      CBC - 7PM - Doctor Who: The Doctor Dances (repeat)
      BBC Three 7:45PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: The Daleks

      A new Doctor Who internet talk show has launched as a podcast. The
      Gallifreyan Embassy http://www.gallifreyembassy.org/portal/index.php
      website now has a weekly radio show (Doctor Who: Podshock) offered
      through the internet. Episode 1 went online August 10. Episode 2
      will presumably go up shortly. The show's format features Doctor Who
      fans on 2 continents (Ken Deep, Louis Trapani US, James Naughton UK)
      discussing the show from the US and UK perspective. I can't speak
      for the quality of the podcast audio as I was unable to get it to
      work - the MP3 version of the audio was soft but held together. They
      discuss the current news and gossip about the series and speculate
      on its present and future. It'll be interesting to see how the show
      progresses in future weeks. It sounds promising.

      Viewer advisory - the CBC http://www.cbc.ca/television in Canada is
      being affected by a strike. As of this writing the Doctor Who
      repeats will air in their regular 7PM slot with no additional
      airings or pre-emptions. But most of the CBC website, including the
      Doctor Who sections, are closed till the strike is resolved. If like
      me you haven't seen all of The Planet Of The Doctor yet, you're
      going to have to wait a while.

      BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca in Canada is redoing their schedule
      effective Monday 29 August, and on weeknights most Doctor Who fans
      benefit. 2 airings a night instead of 1. Midnight and 5AM Eastern
      Time. Aka 11PM and 4AM Central Time. Aka 10PM and 3AM Mountain Time.
      Aka 9PM and 2AM Pacific Time. Aka 1AM and 6AM Atlantic Time. Aka
      1:30AM and 6:30AM Newfoundland. If you preferred the old 2AM
      Eastern / 11PM Pacific Time - weekend complete story broadcasts will
      remain at those times.

      BBC7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 gives the radio premiere of episode 3
      of Paul McGann audio "Storm Warning" this weekend, the 3rd of 16
      weeks of new to radio Doctor Who courtesy of a deal with Big Finish
      http://www.doctorwho.co.uk .

      ABC Australia http://www.abc.net.au/tv completed its run of series 1
      of Doctor Who last Saturday. It is off the air now (though older
      episodes continue airing 4 days a week around 6PM). When ABC or
      another broadcaster buys the Christmas Invasion and Series 2, the
      news should spread fast.

      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.
