      GREECE - Newest country to buy Doctor Who!
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/bbcworldwide/worldwidestories/pressr
      eleases/2006/02_february/skai.shtml
      http://www.c21media.net/news/detail.asp?area=1&article=29105

      The BBC and C21Media reported on 28 February that Doctor Who and
      hundreds of hours of BBC programming have been sold to the new Greek
      TV channel SKAI, which will begin over the air broadcasts on 1 April
      2006. From the BBC article:

      "BBC Worldwide announced today at BBC Showcase that it has concluded
      a two-year agreement with SKAI, the new Greek terrestrial television
      channel launching on 1 April 2006, to televise over 500 hours of
      drama, factual and news and current affairs programming.

      "The titles range from dramas such as Spooks and Doctor Who to
      documentaries, including Seven Wonders of the Industrial World,
      Space Odyssey - Voyage to the Planets and three history titles
      looking at the Ancient Wonders of Jerusalem, Greece and the Holy
      Land."

      Here's hoping that the launch of the SKAI channel is a success and
      that Greece will come to enjoy Doctor Who in the near future.

      HUNGARY - A slight correction on the information regarding last
      week's premiere in Hungary on Cool TV. Doctor Who's Hungarian name
      of Ki Vagy, Doki? translates better as "Who Are You, Doctor?"
      Evidently RTLKlub was the original buyer of Doctor Who in Hungary,
      and somehow the broadcast rights migrated to Cool TV in the
      intervening months. No information has reached the English speaking
      world yet on whether Doctor Who had decent ratings with its premiere.

      USA - SciFi http://www.scifi.com is beginning to advertise the
      upcoming stateside launch of Doctor Who. Text notices about the
      premiere were spotted during the Tuesday February 21 broadcast of
      Passions on Sci-Fi (episode 7, Timmy goes on sale in a fair and
      Tabitha dresses up as a fortune teller, if you're a longtime
      Passions viewer). A 15 second ad focusing on the mystery of the
      character started airing on Wednesday February 22. This ad did not
      mention the series by name but had a fair number of clips - it is
      also on the SciFi website. On Friday February 24 the Doctor Who mini-
      site http://www.scifi.com/doctorwho went live. It is heavily flash
      intensive, so it loads slowly on some machines. It has a lot of
      Doctor Who information. Sci-Fi also redid their launch plans,
      deciding to have a 2 hour premiere for Doctor Who instead of the
      original 1 hour launch. It was unclear as of this writing if Sci-Fi
      will edit Rose and The End Of The World together like they did with
      the Battlestar Galactica and Stargate Atlantis series premieres
      (Battlestar Galactica was clearly 2 unrelated episodes that happened
      to be sequential) or if they will air as separate episodes. Thomas
      Vitale of the Sci-Fi Channel will be on Sci-Fi Overdrive
      http://www.scifioverdrive.com on the weekend of March 10 to discuss
      the launch of Doctor Who and other 2006 programming.

      The new premiere plan:
      All Times Eastern (adjust for local time and East Coast Feed vs.
      West Coast Feed)

      Friday March 17:
      9PM Rose
      10PM The End Of The World
      11PM Rose
      Midnight The End Of The World

      Sunday March 19:
      11PM Rose
      Midnight The End Of The World

      Friday March 24:
      8PM The End Of The World (special repeat)
      9PM The Unquiet Dead
      Midnight The Unquiet Dead

      Sunday March 26:
      Midnight The Unquiet Dead (special time - Sunday movie runs long)

      As of March 31, Doctor Who firmly settles into its regular time
      slots. Fridays at 9PM and Midnight Eastern, Sundays at 11PM Eastern.
      Yes, the Sunday time is a regular timeslot. So, if you are at work
      on Friday night or otherwise unable to watch, you can catch the
      Sunday edition. Since the episodes air twice on Friday, if your only
      problem watching on Friday is that it'll conflict with other TV
      shows you want to see (WWE Smackdown, Las Vegas, Close To Home,
      Reba), just watch the broadcast that does not conflict with the show
      you want to see. If you have DirecTV or Dish Network, you have the
      East Coast version of SciFi no matter where you live in the US - so
      9PM Eastern is 6PM Pacific, 11PM Eastern is 8PM Pacific, and
      Midnight is 9PM Pacific - could be relevant in avoiding schedule
      conflicts with other channels/plans to go out.

      A VCR or a DVR like Tivo also can help get around a schedule
      conflict. If you have a Tivo (or DirecTivo) and have not disabled
      its ability to record suggestions for you, it should be sending
      anonymous information back about what shows are watched on it, how
      close you watch it to live, and whether you fast forward through any
      commercials. Some of these machines have 2 tuners, making it even
      easier to see Doctor Who if another network schedules your second
      favorite show against it (just have both tuners recording and watch
      each show when you get time).

      Just 16 days till the US launch. As someone in the US, I'm excited.

      UK - We don't have a UK premiere date yet for series 2. It is
      unlikely that the BBC has decided on a premiere date yet. But UKTV
      Gold http://www.ukgold.tv seems to believe it will be in mid-April -
      they have postponed their Doctor Who Weekend consisting of the 13
      episodes from Series One from 18 & 19 March to 8 & 9 April.

      Once the new Doctor Who episodes roll out this year, we should have
      Doctor Who Friday - kids related Doctor Who tie-in program on BBC
      One on Friday nights
      Doctor Who - the main show, airing Saturdays at 7 on BBC One with a
      couple of BBC Three repeats
      Doctor Who Confidential - BBC Three half-hour show airing right
      after the Doctor Who BBC One premiere will several repeats
      There are rumours of Mobisodes (mini-episodes downloadable to
      cellular/mobile phones such as Lost and 24 have done) as well. We'll
      see if that happens.

      Doctor Who finishes its run through Series One in Belgium on één and
      Israel on Yes Weekend this week. Yes Weekend ceases to exist on the
      5th, being replaced by Yes Stars, which is expected to air repeats
      of Series 1 as well as Series 2 (assuming Yes buys Series 2).

      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.

      Saturday 6-9:25AM GMT "Inferno" movie
      Season 7, Episodes 19 through 25. Doctor: Jon Pertwee.
      The last 7 episode story, so the last time you both have to get up
      early and stay later than usual to see the full Doctor Who story -
      yes you can sleep in till 7AM if your programming package has UKTV
      Gold + 1. The 3rd Doctor uses a drilling project to provide energy
      to work on the TARDIS console. An accident sends him to an alternate
      Earth, where the project is just slightly further along, and spots
      evidence that it is going disastrously wrong. Includes the radio
      scene deleted from the original TV broadcast but included in most
      repeats - it will be a deleted scene on the DVD release. I wonder if
      the Doctor considered that maybe it was the interference of the
      TARDIS that was causing the drilling disaster on both Earths in the
      first place. It would have been worth checking.
      Sunday 7-8:50AM GMT "Terror Of The Autons" movie
      Season 8, Episodes 1 through 4. Doctor: Jon Pertwee.
      Colour-restored version from the early 1990s. Roger Delgado joins
      the series as The Master. Richard Franklin joins as Captain Mike
      Yates. Katy Manning joins as Jo Grant. The Autons try to rejoin the
      show, but the Doctor and U*N*I*T decide to fight them off again.

      The royalty doesn't understand the peasants. And an image of Aggedor
      is flying around killing people. One of the Doctor's allies is
      forced to take decisive action to save the day - sadly, it's the
      wrong action and it could get them all killed.

      The final Jon Pertwee story (airing by coincidence as both the

      contains the blue Metebelis crystal the Doctor had given her for a
      wedding present. It's causing trouble and she's washing her hands of
      it. A force on Metebelis has tracked the crystal down. It is
      prepared to kill, maim, and steal a car to get it back. Jon Pertwee
      gets his best car/plane/boat action sequence in the series. BBC Kids
      has the rights to the Tom Baker stories again, which will take over
