      BBC Three 8:15PM - Doctor Who: The Doctor Dances (repeat)

      BBC 7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 continues its broadcast premieres of
      Big Finish Doctor Who audios http://www.doctorwho.co.uk starring
      Paul McGann. Episode 1 of "Sword Of Orion" remains online until
      Saturday. Episode 2 premieres on digital radio and online at 6:30PM
      and 12:30AM BST Saturday, then will be up for another week. Episodes
      are edited for time and to remove references to "Minuet In Hell",
      which will not be broadcast.

      Outpost Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com caught a schedule
      change on BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree . The Saturday
      night full length repeat of Doctor Who Confidential has been
      dropped, the Sunday night Doctor Who Confidential is now full length
      airing at 7PM, and 2 Doctor Who episodes will now air Sundays from
      7:30 to 9PM. Episode 8 of Doctor Who Confidential will not air in
      its full length format. The Wednesday night cut down Doctor Who
      Confidential remains at 8:15PM. The Friday night showing of Doctor
      Who (1 episode) and cut down Confidential continue at 9PM. BBC Three
      has a habit of changing their schedules, so this could all change
      again. Especially since UKTV Gold is getting rights to repeat this
      series of Doctor Who on 23 October.

      Canadian viewers. The CBC http://www.cbc.ca/television is repeating
      the last episode of the current Doctor Who series (The Parting Of
      The Ways) this Sunday the 11th. It appears that the Sunday slot on
      the 18th will go to a repeat of a Richard Mercer comedy special. It
      is unknown when/if further repeats will air on the CBC. The
      Christmas Special and the 2nd series will air on the CBC down the
      road - dates to be announced. The CBC's schedule remains tentative
      due to the strike - the Doctor Who website
      http://www.cbc.ca/doctorwho is back online, but the Planet Of The
      Doctor documentary was still offline at publication time.

      Canadian viewers II. Peter Hill, Program Manager at BBC Kids
      http://www.bbckids.ca , alerted Canadian Doctor Who fans and this
      column to a schedule change in their upcoming showing of the Colin
      Baker stories:

      "First of all, thanks for spreading the word to fandom... we're
      really excited about bringing the Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy
      stories to BBC Kids this fall!

      "Just wanted to pass on one small change in the play order for "The
      Two Doctors" and "The Mark Of The Rani" - with thanks to last
      week's "This Week In Doctor Who" and my Sixth Doctor Handbook!

      "We have swapped the play order of "The Two Doctors" and "The Mark
      Of The Rani" to reflect the original UK transmission order, and not
      the production order as originally scheduled.

      "As a result, these stories will play on the following dates:
      Oct 22 - The Mark Of The Rani
      Oct 23 - The Two Doctors
      All other broadcast information remains the same."

      Canadian fans should be very appreciative of BBC Kids. It appears
      the current regime is working very hard for you.

      American Who http://www.americanwho.net has their website up again.
      Due to the recent passing of popular Doctor Who guest actor Michael
      Sheard http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0790410 www.michaelsheard.com ,
      the internet show's fall schedule has been updated as follows:
      September - interview with Michael Sheard at Chicago TARDIS 2003
      October - Richard Franklin (Mike Yates)
      November - Carole Ann Ford (Susan)
      December - Lalla Ward (Romana II)

      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.
