      September 21, 2005 - Vol 8, No 38
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Thursday 22 September:
      Prime TV New Zealand - 7:30PM - Doctor Who: Bad Wolf
      Friday 23 September:
      BBC Three - 9PM - Doctor Who: The Doctor Dances (repeat)
      BBC Three - 9:45PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: Weird Science
      Of Doctor Who (repeat)
      Saturday 24 September:
      BBC Three - 7:45PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: Weird Science
      Of Doctor Who (repeat)
      Sunday 25 September:
      BBC Three 7PM - Doctor Who: The Parting Of The Ways (repeat)
      BBC Three 7:45PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: The Last Battle
      Wednesday 28 September:
      NRK 2 Norway - 8:05PM - Doktor Who: Rose (premiere)

      NRK http://www.nrk.no in Norway presents widescreen programmes in
      their full widescreen ratios in analog and digital (letterbox on
      analog). Doctor Who is likely to be subtitled in Norwegian rather
      than dubbed when it airs on NRK 2. Just 7 days till Doktor Who
      premieres in Norway.

      Another new to radio episode of Doctor Who on BBC7
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 this Saturday night at 6:30PM & 12:30AM
      BST. Conclusion of the 2nd 8th Doctor audio in the Big Finish line
      (Sword Of Orion).

      BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree returns Doctor Who to 7PM
      this Sunday for the final Sunday repeat (Friday repeats are behind
      and continue for the next few weeks). It appears at this point that
      BBC Three is no longer airing any complete versions of Doctor Who
      Confidential, with only Cut Down versions scheduled for the next 2

      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.
