      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Thursday 27 April:
      BBC One 5PM BST "Totally Doctor Who" ep 3
      People + Arts (Spain/Portugal) 10:30PM CET - Dalek (repeat)
      Friday 28 April:
      CBBC 6:30PM BST "Totally Doctor Who" ep 3
      BBC Three 9PM BST - Tooth And Claw (repeat)
      SciFi US 9PM EDT/PDT - Father's Day
      Saturday 29 April:
      CBBC 6:30PM BST "Totally Doctor Who" ep 3
      BBC One 7:20PM BST - School Reunion
      BBC Three 8:05PM BST - Friends Reunited
      Sunday 30 April:
      BBC Three 7PM BST - School Reunion (repeat)
      ATV World (Hong Kong) 11:45PM - Boom Town
      BBC Three 3:05AM BST - Friends Reunited
      Monday 1 May:
      CBBC 1PM BST "Totally Doctor Who" ep 3

      "Tooth And Claw" averaged 8.9 million overnight viewers on BBC One
      on 22 April, dominating the ratings that night. The final numbers
      for "New Earth" on 15 April will likely come out today or tomorrow
      (overnights were 8.0 million). "School Reunion", with guest stars
      Elizabeth Sladen and John Leeson (voicing K9), will air at 7:20PM
      this Saturday 29 April. At the moment Doctor Who is expected to
      return to a 7PM start time on 6 May.

      Doctor Who Confidential's schedule on BBC Three remains erratic.
      First airing remains immediately after the new Doctor Who episode
      premieres on BBC One. Sunday repeat listed at 3:05AM late Sunday for
      the next 2 weeks (subject to change). A 15 minute Confidential
      airing at 7:45PM on 30 April appeared and then disappeared from the
      schedule. Another 15 minute Confidential has now appeared at 7PM on
      7 May.

      "K-9 Adventures" - the robotic companion to the Doctor from 1977 to
      1981 is getting the 3rd show spun off Doctor Who characters (K9 &
      Company got as far as a pilot in 1981, Torchwood is in production
      now). "K-9 Adventures" is a project by K9 creator Bob Baker and is
      not connected to the BBC. 26 ½ hour episodes (running time will
      presumably include commercials) will be made by Jetix Europe at a
      total cost of 3 million pounds. The Doctor is not expected to appear
      in this children's show, a comedy-fantasy series set in deep space.
      No word on if John Leeson will be asked to reprise the role of K9 in
      this version of the show.

      KBTC/KCKA Tacoma/Centralia, WA http://www.kbtc.org returns Doctor
      Who to their schedule this Saturday at 6:30PM with The Three
      Doctors. KBTC is the first station to return the 1963-1989 version
      of Doctor Who to their regular schedule since ABC Australia in
      September 2003. KBTC had to remove Doctor Who from their lineup in
      December 2004 when their contract expired while BBC Worldwide
      Americas was shopping the new series to cable networks. The
      broadcast of The Three Doctors was intended to be a pledge special
      and is scheduled for 2 ½ hours, however at last word the studios for
      the pledge drive were under renovation and the pledge night was due
      to be delayed. KBTC's May schedule is not online yet, so we don't
      have a regular day/time for the series at the moment. Stay tuned,
      and here's hoping for no delays.

      WYBE http://www.wybe.org Philadelphia, PA was at last
      word "considering" adding Doctor Who back to their lineup - WYBE was
      another station who had to drop the show during the negotiations for
      finding a US broadcaster for the new Who. If you live in the
      broadcast area of WYBE, you may want to politely contact them
      (contact information on their website) and let them know if you'd
      watch and help support if they brought the show back. Public TV
      stations can buy stories from the first 7 Doctors (1963 to 1989),
      and certain stories (mostly Dalek stories) are unavailable to
      stations thanks to the ongoing Terry Nation estate contract issue.

      Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood is about to enter production, and the
      BBC Press office has a report on 2 new cast members - Burn Gorman as
      Owen Harper and Naoko Mori as Toshiko Sato. Naoko Mori played
      Toshiko Sato in the Doctor Who Series 1 episode "Aliens Of London".
      Torchwood is set in Cardiff and follows the members of a secret
      organization investigating the use of alien technology by aliens and
      humans. The leads are John Barrowman, reprising the role of Captain
      Jack Harkness from Series 1 of Doctor Who, and Eve Myles as Gwen.
      Torchwood will air on BBC Three later this year with repeats on BBC
      One, and is being co-produced by CBC Canada.

      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.
