      A Doctor Who story is being offered to mobile phone subscribers as
      part of a new video on demand service (ROK media player). "The Five
      Doctors" (1983 20th anniversary special) is being offered with 3 Red
      Dwarf episodes. The full press releases on this new distribution:

      BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca issued a press release Tuesday on
      their acquisition of the Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy stories to
      air on the station this fall. Broadcast dates are in the BBC Kids
      section of the column. As has typically been the case for the last
      20 years for North American broadcasters, The Mark Of The Rani (4th
      Sixth Doctor story) and The Two Doctors (5th Sixth Doctor story)
      will air in the reverse order.

      "As before, I wanted to pass on some exciting information - BBC Kids
      has acquired the The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) & The Seventh Doctor
      (Sylvester McCoy) stories!

      "Canadian fans of the classic Doctor Who can watch the program this
      fall On BBC Kids, with two episodes every Monday through Friday at
      12AM, repeating at 5AM ET. BBC Kids also airs complete stories every
      Saturday and Sunday at 2AM ET.

      "On Saturday, October 8 at 2AM ET on BBC Kids, Canadian viewers will
      be able to watch "The Caves Of Androzani" - closing out the life of
      the Fifth Doctor as he regenerates into Colin Baker's bombastic
      Sixth Doctor.

      "Then, beginning Sunday, October 9 at 2AM with `The Twin Dilemma',
      and continuing each Saturday and Sunday thereafter, viewers can
      watch the Sixth Doctor's stories continuing through to the
      conclusion of the epic `The Trial of a Timelord'.

      "Beginning Sunday, November 13th at 2AM, and after a terrifying trip
      through the vortex, the Sylvester McCoy era begins with `Time and
      the Rani', with the Seventh Doctor's adventures continuing
      thereafter. ...

      "As with previous purchases of `Doctor Who', some stories from these
      eras are unavailable:
      -Revelation of the Daleks
      -Remembrance of the Daleks

      "Fans of the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) serials should note that
      this era will begin transmitting on weekdays with "Spearhead From
      Space" beginning on Thursday, September 22 at both 12:00 midnight
      and 5:00AM, and continuing thereafter.

      As a result of the CBC http://www.cbc.ca/television , most of their
      website is still down and their broadcast schedule is disrupted -
      Doctor Who is still airing at its scheduled time. One interesting
      side effect - the closing credits are not being squished to put in
      ads for more shows. You can see/hear the full credits.

      The link to Doctor Who: Podshock had a typo last week - it should be
      http://www.gallifreyanembassy.org/portal . A second episode went up
      last week - this one appears to be available as a podcast only.

      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.
