      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - Belgium! Netherlands! 42!
      November 23, 2005 - Vol 8, No 47
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Doctor Who is 42 today. There were 42 episodes in the first season.
      There were 42 episodes in the Sylvester McCoy era. The most watched
      story on original broadcast was City Of Death, co-written by Douglas
      Adams, who was about to become famous around the world writing
      Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, a story oddly focused around 42.
      What does this mean? Absolutely nothing, but there's an information
      overload this week and this paragraph is a nice break from trying to
      put it all together.

      Wednesday 23 November:
      NRK 2 Norway - 8:05PM - Ny Helt For Rose?
      Friday 25 November:
      Jimmy (Italy) - 9PM - The Unquiet Dead
      Saturday 26 November:
      één Belgium (Netherlands) - 3:55PM - Rose (Series Premiere!)
      France 4 - 10:20PM - Jeu Interminable/Fête Des Pères
      Christmas Day:
      BBC One/BBC Three - Christmas Special Episode "The Christmas
      Invasion"
      Boxing Day:
      CBC Canada - Christmas Special Episode "The Christmas Invasion"

      The Children In Need sketch
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/appealnight/doctor_who_special.shtml is
      currently being offered online to the world for free in realplayer
      format at that link. This scene occurs right after The Parting Of
      The Ways and leads into The Christmas Invasion (due to premiere in
      the UK and Canada in December). For many people, particularly in the
      US, this is your first (completely legitimate) way to see a piece of
      new Doctor Who. It is roughly 7 minutes long, plus one minute of
      material David Tennant and Billie Piper recorded asking people to
      donate to Children In Need. BTW, if you plan to watch, please donate
      to Children In Need. It is unknown how long the segment will remain
      on the website.

      Belgium & The Netherlands - één Network http://www.een.be , a public
      network in Belgium, has bought the rights to air Doctor Who. It
      premieres this Saturday at 3:55PM CET, with one episode airing per
      week (no repeats). Één is apparently available in the Netherlands,
      so 2 countries get Doctor Who through this deal. Episodes will air
      in English with Flemish subtitles. Nederland 3 in the Netherlands is
      due to air Doctor Who as well starting in January.

      We need to get a list of spillover countries where you can see
      Doctor Who from neighboring countries' broadcasts. We know the CBC
      reaches border areas of the US. BBC One and BBC Three reach parts of
      Ireland, France, and several other European countries. Hopefully a
      full list can be compiled before The Christmas Invasion airs.

      The Christmas Invasion will premiere on Christmas Day (Sunday 25
      December) on BBC One, repeating later on BBC Three. Broadcast time
      to be determined. The BBC Press Office
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice has put up details of the shows
      scheduled on the BBC channels on Christmas Day, though they do not
      have times yet. There is a nice picture of the TARDIS in the snow
      with a Christmas wreath on the doors. BBC Three has "Doctor Who"
      listed with no details. I am assuming it will be The Christmas
      Invasion, though it could be repeats of Series One or Doctor Who
      Confidential.

      UKTV Gold http://www.ukgold.tv will have special Doctor Who
      programming for the Christmas & New Years period. Series One will
      air one episode a day from Monday 19 December with pre-emptions on
      Christmas Day and Boxing Day (26 December), airing 11 episodes
      through 31 December (date of last 2 episodes to be announced). The
      1996 TV Movie starring Paul McGann will air Christmas Day starting
      at 8:20AM.

      ABC Australia http://www.abc.net.au/tv goes to 2 episodes a day 5
      days a week from Monday 28 November. Which is this coming Monday.
      Don't be caught off guard.

      MPT Maryland http://www.mpt.org will cycle back to the Patrick
      Troughton stories (again) next week, as their contract to air
      classic Doctor Who continues but they are not being allowed to buy
      any stories they do not yet already have. This will be the 4th time
      in a row through the Troughton and Pertwee stories.

      Various reports on BBC7's http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 December plans
      came out this week. Shada (2003 Big Finish/BBCi remake of the
      unfinished TV story) will apparently air with material discussing
      Douglas Adams. Shada will be the CD audio release version, which is
      very slightly different from the version still online at the BBC's
      Doctor Who website
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/index.shtml . My Life As A
      Dalek, the Radio 4 documentary by Mark Gattiss exploring the metal
      monsters, will get another broadcast. And it's previously been
      reported that The Chimes Of Midnight (Big Finish 8th Doctor/Charley
      audio story) will air in December as well.

      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.

      Best wishes to everyone attending the Chicago TARDIS Doctor Who
      convention in Chicago this weekend.

      Doctor Who Children In Need Sketch
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/appealnight/doctor_who_special.shtml
      David Tennant and Billie Piper star in this 7 minute Doctor Who
      scene made for Children In Need. It is set immediately between The
      Parting Of The Ways and The Christmas Invasion. It is still online
      at this time. Remember to donate - this was made to help Children In
      Need. Picture and sound quality are mediocre, at least outside the
      UK. It is unlikely to air on TV again, though one hopes it will
      eventually see DVD. For now, it is a chance for anyone with internet
      connections to see new Doctor Who around the world.

      as much. Those are the ones you are getting now as they get their
      money's worth from the old deal. The Doctor regenerates in an
