      THIS WEEK IN KI VAGY, DOKI - Doctor Who's premiered in Hungary!
      February 22, 2006 - Vol 9, No 8
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Thursday 23 February:
      People + Arts (Spain/Portugal) 10:30PM CET - Dalek
      Friday 24 February:
      Yes Weekend - 6:20 & 10:53PM - The Doctor Dances/Boom Town
      Saturday 25 February:
      één Belgium 4PM - Bad Wolf
      Sunday 26 February:

      ATV World (Hong Kong) 11:35PM - The End Of The World
      Tuesday 28 February:
      Ztélé Canada 8PM - Drôle De Mort
      Friday 17 March:
      SciFi US 9PM EST/PST - Rose (US Premiere!)

      Hungarian Doctor Who fans got to see the show premiere on channel
      Cool TV http://www.cooltv.hu this past Sunday 19 February at 7PM
      Central European Time. This premiere escaped attention in last
      week's column because we've been waiting for months for the premiere
      on RTLKlub http://www.rtlklub.hu , which had previously been
      announced as the broadcaster. Also, the show is going under the
      name "Ki Vagi, Doki". This translates as "From Outside, The Medic".
      Episodes are airing Sundays at 7PM & 2:05AM, with a Saturday repeat
      at 7PM. If you missed the premiere because you didn't know about it
      either, you can still catch Rose this week on the Saturday repeat.
      Unless it's the 26th or later before you read the column, of course.

      Canada - BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca has reported that they have
      re-acquired the Tom Baker Doctor Who stories and bought Invasion Of
      The Dinosaurs for the first time, adding it to the Jon Pertwee
      cycle. All 6 episodes of Invasion Of The Dinosaurs will air,
      including episode 1, which is titled "Invasion" and only survives in
      black & white. This will be the first black & white Doctor Who
      episode to air on BBC Kids when they get to the story (it's not on
      the schedule at this time). I also believe episode 1 of Invasion Of
      The Dinosaurs has never aired on a Canadian TV channel before,
      though it may have aired on US TV channels fed into parts of Canada
      via cable. BBC Kids now has the rights to Doctor Who from the Jon
      Pertwee era through Sylvester McCoy's era and all points in between.

      Episodes on BBC Kids continue at 2AM & 5AM Eastern Time (11PM & 2AM
      Pacific) late weeknights and 2AM Eastern (11PM Pacific) late weekend
      nights. Doctor Who will be pre-empted on 16 March due to a long
      movie and 1 April due to the switch to Daylight Savings Time.
      Weekend Doctor Who episodes go to Tom Baker beginning 11 March while
      weekday episodes go to Peter Davison beginning 9 March.

      BBC Kids reports that they do not have the following stories:
      The Ambassadors Of Death (not purchased)
      The Mind Of Evil (not purchased)
      Day Of The Daleks (not available at this time)
      Frontier In Space (not available at this time)

      Resurrection Of the Daleks (not available at this time)

      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.
