    Message 1 of 1 , Oct 5, 2005
      October 5, 2005 - Vol 8, No 40
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Wednesday 5 October:
      NRK 2 Norway - 8:05PM - Doktor Who: Hett Møtt Med Fremtiden
      Friday 7 October:
      BBC Three - 9PM - Doctor Who: Bad Wolf (repeat)
      BBC Three - 9:45PM - Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down: The World Of
      Who (repeat)
      Saturday 8 October:
      BBC Three - 8:30PM - Doctor Who Confidential (full length): The
      World Of Who (repeat)

      The latest broadcaster to buy Doctor Who is a digital network in
      France. France 4 http://www.france4.tv is tentatively expected to
      begin airing the Christopher Eccleston episodes in November. Expect
      Doctor Who on Saturday nights.

      The Homechoice http://www.homechoice.co.uk TV service in the UK has
      put a selection of Doctor Who on their on demand services.
      Homechoice previously offered a selection of The Sontaran
      Experiment, Genesis Of The Daleks, and Revenge Of The Cybermen
      several years ago. Subscribers note that the new package is on
      channel C1. At the moment it consists of the following stories:
      The Three Doctors (4 episodes) (Jon Pertwee era)
      The Deadly Assassin (4 episodes, end of episode 3 is the edited less
      violent version) (Tom Baker era)
      The Caves Of Androzani (4 episodes) (Peter Davison era)
      Timelash (4 episode version) (Colin Baker era)
      The Curse Of Fenric (original 4 episode version) (Sylvester McCoy
      Rose, The End Of The World, The Unquiet Dead, Aliens Of London,
      World War Three, Dalek, The Long Game, Father's Day, The Empty
      Child, The Doctor Dances, Boom Town, Bad Wolf, and The Parting Of
      The Ways (cropped to 4:3 ratio) (Christopher Eccleston era)

      NRK 2 http://www.nrk.no Norway is translating the titles of the
      episodes on their web listings. Currently they have them for the
      first 4 episodes. Until a Norwegian translation is assigned I will
      use the English language title. Episode 1 (Rose) was titled "Tidenes

      The Starz/Encore movie channels in the US have several airings of
      the 1996 Doctor Who movie scheduled for November:
      Encore Mystery
      Saturday Nov 5 7:35AM EST/PST
      Friday Nov 18 4AM, 4:45PM, 11:45PM EST/PST
      Tuesday Nov 22 9:05AM EST/PST

      Friday Nov 18 5AM, 5:45PM, 12:45AM EST/PST

      BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca has another case of production versus
      broadcast order coming up on their Doctor Who schedule. This time it
      involves the Jon Pertwee stories. The October schedule has the 12th
      Pertwee story (The Sea Devils) airing before the 11th (The Curse Of
      Peladon). This particular switch won't cause many problems for
      viewers as those stories have no connection to each other. The
      production versus broadcast order will cause more confusion later.
      For those interested, here is the difference between the intended
      broadcast and the order of production.

      BBC Kids airs the first Colin Baker story (The Twin Dilemma) this
      Sunday night at 2AM Eastern, the first in a batch of stories making
      their premiere on the channel.

      TWIDW would like to welcome back readers of the rec.arts.drwho and
      rec.arts.drwho.moderated newsgroups. Due to a recent change in
      internet providers I am able to supply the column to the newsgroups,
      where it began back in 1998.

      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.
