      The people at KTEH 54 San Jose, CA http://www.kteh.org have sent out
      a press release heralding their acquisition of the Christopher
      Eccleston Doctor Who episodes, making them the first public TV
      station to publicize that they purchased this package. It is expected
      that public TV stations will get Doctor Who in a one hour block - the
      unedited episodes followed by a cut down version of the relevant
      Doctor Who Confidential episode.

      -------------
      After a wait of over four years, Doctor Who rematerializes on KTEH.

      The first series of the new Doctor Who has been acquired by KTEH
      (PBS - San Jose, CA) with a planned premiere on Tuesday April 10,
      2007. Starring Christopher Eccleston (Heroes, 28 Days Later) as the
      ninth incarnation of the wandering time traveler known only as the
      Doctor, Doctor Who triumphantly returned to British television
      screens after a 16 year absence. Since then, the new series has been
      seen worldwide from Finland and Italy, to Hong Kong and Korea.

      Doctor Who returns to KTEH after an absence of over four years. When
      the series last ran, KTEH had aired the equivalent of 7703 episodes
      (Over 10 times more than the BBC actually produced!!) as well as
      producing around a dozen Doctor Who related interviews. Beginning on
      April 13, 1981, Doctor Who captured the attention of the viewers of
      the San Francisco Bay Area, with the series being shown every
      weeknight, and full stories every Saturday night. Doctor Who last
      aired in January of 2003, and was a victim of budget problems and
      declining funding from the viewing public.

      Doctor Who is a product of the BBC in the UK, and is distributed to
      PBS stations though American Public Television and BBC Worldwide.
      KTEH is part of the newly formed Northern California Public
      Broadcasting, which is comprised of KTEH-TV, KQED-TV & FM, KCAH and
      KQEI-FM and is the most watched public television broadcaster and the
      second most listened-to public radio broadcaster in the country.
