      February 15, 2006 - Vol 9, No 7
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Thursday 16 February:
      People + Arts (Spain/Portugal) 10:30PM CET - World War Three
      Friday 17 February:
      Yes Weekend - 6:20 & 10:53PM - Father's Day/The Empty Child
      Saturday 18 February:
      één Belgium 4PM - Boom Town
      Sunday 19 February:
      ATV World (Hong Kong) 11:35PM - Rose (Hong Kong Premiere!)
      Tuesday 21 February:
      Ztélé Canada 8PM - Fête Des Pères
      Friday 17 March:
      SciFi US 9PM EST/PST - Rose (US Premiere!)

      Doctor Who premieres this Sunday night (the 19th) at 11:35PM in Hong
      Kong on English language station ATV World, starting with Rose.
      Here's wishing it a long and successful run in that territory.
      Episodes are airing one time with either no or limited commercials -
      the time slot is 11:35PM to 12:25AM. No repeats expected.

      USA - Iowa Public TV http://www.iptv.org viewers should remember
      that the Doctor Who pledge night is March 11, the week before the
      new series premieres on SciFi. When you pledge, you'll get to vote
      on which Doctor you want to see next on IPTV (Hartnell, Troughton,
      Pertwee, Tom Baker, Davison, Colin Baker, McCoy). As of this writing
      it is expected that the winning Doctor will begin airing on IPTV
      right away, displacing Sylvester McCoy after just 2 of his stories
      air (presumably McCoy will be allowed to finish his current run if
      he wins the vote).

      The Gallifrey One Doctor Who convention http://www.gallifreyone.com
      is this weekend (February 17 through 19) in Los Angeles, CA. Much of
      the readership of this column will be there, and I hope it's a great
      time. Hope to make it one of these years when time and money are
      willing. It is produced by Shaun Lyon of the Outpost Gallifrey
      website (same link), which hosts this column online.

      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.
