      YLE 2 Finland 8:05PM - Rose (Finland Premiere!)
      Monday 9 October:
      CBC 8PM - New Earth (Series 2 Premiere!)

      Series 2 continues in New Zealand and Australia with "School
      Reunion" airing this week.

      The BBC is publicizing their fall 2006 plans for their various
      channels. Torchwood, Doctor Who's spin-off, is being noted as the
      biggest show in BBC Three's fall schedule. The press release (with
      some spoilers, and no actual premiere date in case you were curious)
      is at:
      4/bbcthree.shtml .

      Malaysian Doctor Who fans - the Astro service
      http://www.astro.com.my/v5 is expected to present Series 2 of Doctor
      Who in its entirety on the Box Office Events channel from 3 to 9
      August. The exact schedule is not on their website yet.

      UK and US Doctor Who fans are going to have a hard time finding any
      episodes airing on TV for a little while.

      No episodes are airing on TV in the UK this week on any channel at
      all (BBC7 will present episode 3 of the 2003 version of Shada on the
      radio Sunday). The 1996 TV Movie with Paul McGann will air late
      Saturday 5 August on UKTV Gold, and that's all the Doctor Who for
      the next few weeks.

      SciFi US http://www.scifi.com has no Doctor Who repeats scheduled
      through the end of August, so unless you live in the broadcast areas
      of Maryland Public TV http://www.mpt.org , Iowa Public TV
      http://www.iptv.org , or KBTC Tacoma, WA http://www.kbtc.org ,
      Doctor Who's gone for at least a month.

      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.
