      Merry Christmas (and the happiest of holidays) to all the This Week
      In Doctor Who readership. This is the weekend of the first ever
      OFFICIAL Doctor Who Christmas special ("The Feast Of Steven" in 1965
      wasn't actually billed as a Christmas special). David Tennant is
      officially taking over as the 10th Doctor. The UK, the British
      military, and Canada are all getting "The Christmas Invasion" this
      weekend. The reviews make it sound exciting, it's 60 minutes long,
      and they're doing another one next year. Series Two will air
      sometime in 2006 - date to be determined.

      A far cry from this time last year. We new the new Doctor Who was
      coming. No clue how it would turn out. CBC Canada and Prime TV New
      Zealand had bought the show, but otherwise we were still waiting to
      learn who the overseas broadcasters would be - we didn't even know
      about Australia. Doctor Who wasn't on TV at all in the UK for
      Christmas - UKTV Gold was pre-empting it for yet another weekend
      marathon of Carry On movies. We were hopeful, but it was a quiet Who
      Christmas 2004. How times change!

      BBC Radio Wales http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/radiowales will
      air "Doctor Who Back In Time: New Doctor, New Danger" on Friday at
      6:30PM and Saturday at 1:05PM GMT. It's a new Welsh documentary tied
      into the Christmas episode.

      BBC Radio 7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 airs episode 2 of "The Chimes
      Of Midnight", Big Finish's own Christmas contribution to Doctor Who,
      this Saturday at 6:30PM and 12:30AM GMT. No episode New Years Eve -
      part 3 airs on 7 January.

      And don't forget "Attack Of The Graske", an interactive Doctor Who
      game/adventure to finish off Christmas night in the UK. Use the red
      button on digital TV to play the game anytime between 8PM and
      Midnight (it'll air again on New Years Day). Stars David Tennant
      with the player as companion.

      UK Doctor Who fans get to see the TV Movie again at 8AM Christmas
      Day on UKTV Gold. Repeats on New Years Day and 2 January if you miss

      Arabian Peninsula and Northern African Doctor Who fans - Showtime
      Arabia http://www.showtimearabia.com is bringing Doctor Who to their
      satellite platform beginning tomorrow. Style UK will air 2 episodes
      of Doctor Who per week. Thursdays and Fridays at 7PM UAE time
      (adjust for your time zone). Repeats the following day (Fridays and
      Saturdays) at 9AM and 4PM UAE. Congratulations to the latest Doctor
      Who broadcaster. I'll try to have a list of countries where you can
      subscribe to Showtime Arabia in the next few weeks.

      France and Norway say goodbye to Series One this week. NRK 2
      http://www.nrk.no airs Parting Of The Ways tonight at 8:05PM CET.
      France 4 http://www.france4.tv repeats Parting Of The Ways one more
      time - Christmas Eve at 8:30AM CET. Hopefully they will air future
      seasons and maybe repeat this season in the future. Shows that do
      well on France 4 sometimes air on the more widely available France
      2 - no clue if this will happen with Doctor Who.

      UKTV Gold has sent out the following letter in regards to the future
      of the weekend omnibus repeats of the classic Doctor Who stories:

      "Thank you for your query regarding UKTV Gold. The omnibus episodes
      of Doctor Who will continue well into 2006 in the current 7:00am
      slot on Saturdays and Sundays. The series will be off air from this
      weekend till New Years Day while we play out our Christmas schedule.
      However, the series will return on 7th Jan when we will be showing
      the final 2 episodes of our Sylvester McCoy season. Following that
      we will be showing Colin Baker's episodes and from 19th Feb we will
      begin showing Jon Pertwee's stint as the Doctor with the
      episode "Spearhead From Space".

      "Yours sincerely, Richard, UKTV Gold"

      Thanks to the readers who have been checking on this. Jon Pertwee is
      finally returning to UKTV Gold.

      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.
