      Monday 9 October:
      CBC 8PM - New Earth (Series 2 Premiere!)

      The 8 July premiere of the 46 ½ minute series finale "Doomsday" on
      BBC One had overnight ratings of 7.72 million viewers, 43.2% of the
      audience watching TV at the time. The final ratings for "Army Of
      Ghosts" on 1 July were not available when this column was completed.
      The next new Doctor Who episode premieres in December. Its name -
      The Runaway Bride.

      And the Torchwood spinoff series will premiere in a couple of
      months, so the Doctor Who universe won't be staying out of the
      public eye in the UK for long.

      Doctor Who airs in Malaysia on the Astro Network
      http://www.astro.com.my/v5 on Box Office Events channel 22. It
      appears you have to subscribe to Doctor Who to see the series.
      Series 1 began airing on 9 July and will conclude on 15 July. Series
      2 will air in its entirety from 3 to 9 August, so Malaysian viewers
      with this pay package will be the second in the world to see the end
      of Series 2 after the UK, assuming they air the show all the way
      through Doomsday. Congratulations, Malaysia!

      Doctor Who returns to the radio! BBC 7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7
      begins another repeat run of Doctor Who radio drama Sundays at 6PM
      and Midnight starting 16 July with encore material from Big Finish
      http://www.doctorwho.co.uk . BBC7 will begin the run with Shada, a
      2003 BBCi/Big Finish co-production which remade the only Doctor Who
      TV serial abandoned during filming. BBC7 has previously presented
      Shada in 3 hour block - this time they are showing it serially by

      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.
