      This Week In Doctor Who - August 31, 2001
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 4, No 35

      Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts around the world.

      Canadians, rejoice! Word broke on Outpost Gallifrey
      http://www.gallifreyone.com/ Tuesday that BBC Kids, one of two digital BBC
      channels launching this fall, has added Doctor Who to its lineup. BBC Kids
      will go on the air in November - 2 months after most of the new channels,
      including BBC Canada. To get the station, you need to be subscribed to
      either digital cable or a satellite system, and your cable/satellite
      provider has to decide to pick the station up. It is unknown at this time
      which Doctor BBC Kids will start with, or what time the show will air. When
      the website for BBC Kids is up, it will be http://www.bbckids.ca/ .

      Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay - guess what, you've got
      Doctor Who as well, starting in October! Imagen Satelital, a Latin America
      broadcaster, has bought the rights to air Doctor Who on one of their TV
      stations, which will air in the 5 above named countries. Looking over the
      stations mentioned on their website http://www.imagensat.com.ar/ , I believe
      that Uniseries http://www.uniseries.com.ar/ is the most likely home for
      Doctor Who, because it is the only one that is focusing on new and old TV
      shows. TV listings information for down there is very sketchy, so hopefully
      there are some readers left from when HBO OLE aired the TV movie down there
      multiple times in 1999 who might know where to go for accurate listings in
      that part of the world. Imagen Satelital's pickup of Doctor Who was first
      announced on Outpost Gallifrey at the same time the BBC Canada news came
      out. Good week for the Western Hemisphere.

      Death Comes To Time again. In yet another scoop, Outpost Gallifrey got a
      press release from the BBC regarding the Death Comes To Time audio drama.
      The BBC had previously decided to record the remaining 5 episodes of this
      Doctor Who story, with Sylvester McCoy as the Doctor and Sophie Aldred as
      Ace. Now they have decided where to release the episodes - at
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/ , where episode 1 came out in July. The 5
      new episodes will come online in real audio format at the rate of 1 episode
      per week in 2002 (start date not on the BBC's release). Like episode 1, the
      episodes will have colour illustrations by Lee Sullivan. Episode 1 is still
      online for people to listen to right now.

      Dallas, TX - KERA 13 http://www.kera.org/ will be offered to Dallas area
      viewers on Direct TV come January 2002. More and more stations are being
      offered in local satellite packages in major markets. PBS stations have
      lagged behind major network affiliates, but are expected to go up
      eventually. KERA is the first Doctor Who airing station known to have
      announced that they will be on a satellite service.

      Messenger. And now, the listings:

      Story descriptions are off on vacation, but I have told them to send
      postcards next week to make up for it.
