      Early edition due to my ongoing move. This Week In Doctor Who
      returns to normal from its new world headquarters next week.
      Naturally, this would be a big week.

      NRK 2 Norway http://www.nrk.no is starting its Doctor Who broadcasts
      this Wednesday night. Here's hoping for large ratings and a new
      fanbase getting to enjoy the show. NRK 2 now has a Doctor Who page -
      see below.

      On the other end, series 1 concludes in New Zealand on Prime TV
      http://www.primetv.co.nz Thursday at 7:30PM. Prime TV is giving the
      time slot to the series "New Zealand's Top 100 History Makers".

      Italian channel Jimmy http://www.jimmy140.it has put up a Doctor Who
      page and announced its premiere date - 11 November at 9PM CET. Jimmy
      will have some sort of special after the first episode with cast and
      crew interviews.

      There is a rumor circulating that digital channel France 4 has
      gotten the French rights to the series. No confirmation yet.

      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.
