      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - 11 Days Until Christmas (Invasion)!
      December 14, 2005 - Vol 8, No 50
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Wednesday 14 December:
      NRK 2 Norway - 8:05PM - Fanger Av TV-Program
      Friday 16 December:
      Jimmy (Italy) - 9PM - Dalek
      Saturday 17 December:
      één Network Belgium - 3:40PM - Aliens Of London
      France 4 - 10:25PM - Not Titled Yet (1st Series Finale)
      Tuesday 20 December:
      BBC Radio 2 8:33PM - Regeneration (documentary on the challenge of
      introducing a new Doctor to the British public, and on Doctor Who's
      success in 2005)
      Christmas Day:
      BBC One 7PM - The Christmas Invasion (world premiere)
      BBC Interactive 8PM Attack Of The Graske (interactive episode/game
      available via the red button on TV in the UK)
      Boxing Day:
      CBC Canada 8PM - The Christmas Invasion
      New Years Day:
      BBC Three 7PM - The Christmas Invasion
      BBC Interactive 8PM Attack Of The Graske (another chance to play the

      11 days till the UK premiere of The Christmas Invasion, 12 days till
      the Canadian premiere. The excitement is building in the UK, with 2
      well made teasers and a 30 second trailer broadcast on BBC One and
      Two so far (see them online at http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho ). The
      British press saw the episode on 12 December and Parliament saw the
      episode on 13 December, so leaks about the plot are filtering around
      the internet and in British newspapers - if you fear spoilers,
      you're in for a rough couple of weeks. Doctor Who is up against
      Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire on ITV1, rather than
      stronger competition like Coronation Street or Emmerdale. There is
      every reason to think that a very large audience will tune in for
      David Tennant's first full length (a full 60 minute) episode as the
      Doctor. And if you have the BBC's interactive service in the UK
      (most but not all digital viewers have access), you can click on the
      red button at 8PM or later on Christmas Day to play "Attack Of The
      Graske", an interactive adventure starring David Tennant and the
      person playing.

      BBC 7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 begins airing a different Doctor Who
      Christmas story this Saturday at 6:30PM and 12:30AM GMT. "The Chimes
      Of Midnight", a Big Finish Doctor Who audio drama starring Paul
      McGann and India Fisher, will air over 4 Saturdays in the same time
      slot where 4 previous McGann/Fisher Doctor Who audios have aired.
      Conflicting information on whether the story will air over 4 weeks
      or whether it will be pre-empted on New Years Eve. We'll know in a
      few days about that matter. Episodes can be heard live online
      through the website and through the Listen Again feature afterwards.
      If you missed Shada or My Life As A Dalek - they remain on Listen
      Again only until Saturday 17 December.

      BBC Radio 2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2 premieres its latest Doctor
      Who documentary - "Regeneration" - this Tuesday at 8:33PM GMT. If
      you miss it live, that's the advantage of Listen Again.

      BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree will encore "The Christmas
      Invasion" on Sunday New Years Day at 7PM GMT. This will be the first
      repeat of the special episode, and the longest lag between UK first
      run and repeat to date (7 days). At 8PM that night viewers will be
      able to get to "Attack Of The Graske" via the red button.

      Italian channel Jimmy http://www.jimmy140.it has started giving
      Italian titles for Doctor Who episodes, effective immediately. We
      will use the Italian titles. In Italy, 2 parters have the same name
      for both parts.

      France 4 http://www.france4.tv still hasn't given a French language
      title to The Parting Of The Ways, which premieres this Saturday at
      10:25PM CET. The season's really flown by in France, since they
      aired 2 episodes a week. Here's hoping for a repeat run on a channel
      that more French viewers receive.

      BFBS 2 and BFBS Navy also complete their repeat run of Doctor Who
      Series One this weekend. It is likely that The Christmas Invasion
      will air on that service for the British military soon after its UK

      BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca is changing their schedule in Canada.
      The weeknight Midnight EST broadcasts end on 23 December. Weeknight
      episodes will only air at 5AM EST the week between Christmas and New
      Years. Beginning 2 January, weeknight broadcasts are at 2 and 5AM
      EST. Weekend broadcasts remain at 2AM EST. This weekend The Curse Of
      Fenric and Survival air, the final new to BBC Kids stories for the
      moment. After airing these stories, BBC Kids will have shown ever
      fully color Doctor Who story they could get the rights to at least

      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.
