      A day late, and probably a loonie or two short...

      It seems that being away from my computer and thusly the internet over
      the Memorial Day weekend has put an adverse effect on the submission of
      this week's column in a timely fashion. Oh well, no matter for I've
      pretty much covered some of this week's announcements in an earlier
      supplemental edition of This Week in Doctor Who. For those that may
      have missed out on the supplemental from a couple of days ago, I will be
      going over the topics again farther down in this introduction.
      Unfortunately, no overnight ratings report this week for last week's
      episode, "The Idiot's Lantern", as shown on BBC One due to time
      constraints. This information can be obtained from the Outpost
      Gallifrey news page over at http://www.gallifreyone.com

      Doctor Who Series 1 (Season 27) with Christopher Eccleston has returned
      to Canadian
      broadcast TV this week. Episodes dubbed into French are shown on Ztélé
      -- http://www.ztele.com -- on Tuesdays at 8PM. There are same week
      repeats for scheduled for Saturday mornings at 8AM and late Sundays at
      3AM. Also on the same channel, the 1996 TV movie with Paul McGann will
      make an appearance this Saturday at 10PM with a repeat broadcast the
      following day on Sunday at 2PM. I believe this is the first time the TV
      movie will be shown on a exclusively Canadian broadcaster.

      A relatively new US-based internet to TV DVR service called Akimbo which
      requires its own special hardware and media center setup. Currently,
      they offer some programming including Doctor Who, with various complete
      series in episodic format, via their service at this time. It's
      probably worth looking into, if you want to integate your TV/sound setup
      with an internet DVR service. More info can be found at
      http://www.akimbo.com and

      Also of note for European viewers of series 1 of Doctor Who (Ki Vagy,
      Doki?), Cool TV -- http://www.cooltv.hu -- in Hungary is currently
      airing a repeat run on Fridays at 10:15PM CET. This week's episode is
      "The Unquiet Dead". Dutch broadcaster, Nederland 3, is set to begin
      airing series 1 on Saturday 10 June at 7PM CET. Ned3 will probably air
      the series with subtitles or dubbed into Dutch.

      Spain & Portugal Doctor Who fans will get to see the last three episodes
      of Series One - eventually. Digital Plus channel People + Arts finishes
      its repeat of the first 10 episodes on the weekend of 1 through 4
      June. Starting 4 June, episodes will repeat at 1:30AM most nights
      beginning with "Rose". "Boom Town" ("La alcaldesa de Cardiff" -> "The
      Mayoress of Cardiff") will air at 1:30AM late Sunday 18 June. "Bad
      Wolf" will air at 1:30AM late Monday 19 June. "The Parting of the Ways"
      ("La despedida" -> "The
      Goodbye") will air at 1:30AM late Tuesday 20 June. The series will
      begin repeating again on 21 June. I don't know why they skipped these
      last three episodesthe first two times they aired the series.

      SciFi -- http://www.scifi.com -- in the US will have a mini-marathon of
      Doctor Who episodes of on Friday, June 16th, the week after "The Parting
      of the Ways" airs on the channel. The marathon is from 8PM to 3AM
      Eastern, and consists of four episodes, three of them airing twice.
      8PM & Midnight - Aliens of London
      9PM & 1AM - World War Three
      10PM & 2AM - Dalek
      11PM only - The Long Game
      Marathons of other sci-fi shows air on June 23rd and 30th. Doctor Who
      will probably not repeat on Fridays due to the start of a new season on
      SciFi Friday programming in July -- schedule information for July is
      now available albeit somewhat incomplete. "Fathers Day" will be
      repeated on Sci Fi on Sunday June 25th @ 11PM EDT, but the next
      scheduled airing of Doctor Who is currently tentatvively indicated as
      being on July 16th @ 11PM with a subsequent Sunday airing the following
      week at the same time. No other broadcasts seem to be scheduled
      afterwards, but it seems to be subject to change so stay tuned.

      As of this writing, no broadcasters outside the UK have confirmed the
      dates when Series Two will begin airing. It will air around the world
      -- but patience is needed.

      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.

      That's mostly it from me; Benjamin will be back to editing the column
      next week. Any comments or corrections be sent via e-mail to
      thisweekindoctorwho-owner@yahoogroups.com , TWIDW on AOL IM , and thebfe on
      Yahoo Messenger
