      January 11, 2006 - Vol 9, No 2
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Thursday 12 January:
      Style UK 9PM UAE - The Long Game
      Friday 13 January:
      Style UK 9PM UAE - Father's Day
      Jimmy (Italy) - 9PM - The Doctor Dances
      Saturday 14 January:
      één Belgium 3:35PM - Dalek
      Tuesday 17 January:
      Ztélé Canada 8PM - Des Morts Inassouvis
      Tuesday 14 February:
      Canadian/US R1 DVD Series One Box Set - POSTPONED! Will not be out
      on that day!

      Ztélé http://www.ztele.com/index.jsp , a French language channel in
      Canada, added Doctor Who to their schedule on 3 January. They are
      airing Doctor Who cropped to 4:3 pan & scan format, using the same
      French dub that aired on France 4 in November and December. One
      episode per week. Episodes premiere Tuesday at 8PM, repeating Friday
      at 9PM, Saturday at 8AM, Sunday at 4PM, and the next Tuesday at 2PM.
      All times EST - adjust for local times. Canadians who want to see
      Ztélé should check their cable/satellite services - it may require a
      more expensive package than you have right now. Ztélé airs mostly
      US/Canadian/UK English language shows that have been dubbed.

      Hong Kong correction - thanks to further translations of the article
      from last week, there's a correction on the channel airing the show.
      Doctor Who will actually be on ATV World
      http://www.hkatv.com/world/05 . ATV World is an over the air English
      language channel. Doctor Who is still expected on 19 February.

      US/Canadian Doctor Who fans will have to wait longer for the R1 DVD
      release of Series One (the Christopher Eccleston episodes). The DVD
      release has been postponed for problems which were not explained.
      Steve Manfred's Doctor Who on North American Video/DVD FAQ
      http://home.comcast.net/~smanfred , TV Shows On DVD
      http://www.tvshowsondvd.com , and the Outpost Gallifrey News Page
      http://www.doctorwhonews.com . This DVD release would have been the
      first official chance for US fans who live south of the CBC's TV
      reception range to see Series One, though some fans have purchased
      the DVD sets from the UK or Australia to play on multi-region DVD
      players. If you're in the US or Canada and want to get the UK or
      Australian sets instead of waiting, those sets require a DVD player
      that accepts PAL signals and has been set to region 2, region 4, or
      region free. All US players are sold set to region 1, not all of
      them accept PAL signals or can be modified.

      BBC7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 finishes "The Chimes Of Midnight"
      this Saturday at 6:30PM & 12:30AM GMT. The 6th Paul McGann/India
      Fisher Doctor Who story (5th presented on BBC 7 - they skipped
      Minuet In Hell for content reasons). No word on when more episodes
      will air, but they'll probably buy more, and given the station's
      history a repeat of the McGann stories previously aired is almost
      certain. Someday.

      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.
