      Most of the readership already knows this, but for everyone who has
      missed the big news today:

      1) http://www.scifi.com/doctorwho is now live and full of
      information about the upcoming series, including trivia about Doctor
      Who old and new. It uses the latest version of flash and will load
      slowly on some computers. If you do now know the details of the 2005
      series with Christopher Eccleston & Billie Piper yet, then beware -
      it includes spoilers. There is also a message board for fans who
      want to chat.

      2) SciFi has revised the March broadcast schedule for Doctor Who,
      presumably to try to give it a stronger premiere. The first 2
      episodes will air as a movie, like Sci-Fi did with Battlestar
      Galactica in January 2005 and Stargate Atlantis in July 2004. The
      movie of Rose and The End Of The World will air twice in a row on
      March 17, going from 9PM to 1AM. The episodes repeat together on
      Sunday March 19 from 11PM to 1AM. Presumably Rose will air by itself
      on a later date. The full schedule (Eastern Time Zone):

      Friday, March 17:
      8PM - Stargate SG-1 season 9 repeat
      9PM - Doctor Who - Rose/The End Of The World movie broadcast
      11PM - Doctor Who - Rose/The End Of The World movie broadcast
      1AM - Stargate Atlantis season 2 repeat

      Sunday, March 19:
      11PM - Doctor Who - Rose/The End Of The World movie broadcast

      Friday, March 24:
      8PM - Doctor Who - The End Of The World
      9PM - Doctor Who - The Unquiet Dead
      10PM - Stargate Atlantis season 2 repeat
      11PM - Stargate SG-1 season 9 repeat
      Midnight - Doctor Who - The Unquiet Dead
      1AM - Stargate Atlantis season 2 repeat

      Sunday, March 26:
      Midnight - Doctor Who - The Unquiet Dead

      Friday, March 31:
      8PM - Stargate SG-1 season 9 repeat
      9PM - Doctor Who - Aliens Of London pt 1
      10PM - Stargate Atlantis season 2 repeat
      11PM - Stargate SG-1 season 9 repeat
      Midnight - Doctor Who - Aliens Of London pt 1
      1AM - Stargate Atlantis season 2 repeat

      The April schedule should go online sometime next week, at which
      time we should know if the Sunday broadcast is just a promotion to
      help launch the show or a regular repeat time for the full run.

      BTW, Doctor Who was appearing in the text that appears on the left
      on Sci-Fi shows when they come out of commercials this past Tuesday
      morning. It was spotted 3 times in the Passions broadcast - 9:20AM,
      9:37AM, and 9:55AM Eastern on February 21. The text said simply
      Doctor Who Premieres March 17 at 9PM/8C. A 15 second teaser
      commercial for the Doctor Who run on Sci-Fi began airing late
      Wednesday afternoon on the 22nd.

      I think SciFi is going to make it a point to let its viewership know
      that Doctor Who is coming next month. Here's hoping it gets a good
      reception.
