      New episode on BBC One tonight - Human Nature by Paul Cornell.

      BBC Four http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour is airing The Idiot's Lantern
      (episode 2-07) this Tuesday at 8:10PM BST as part of a week of shows
      examining British Childrens' TV. This is the first time that a New
      Series episode has aired on BBC Four - BBC Four has aired repeats of
      several classic series stories including Spearhead From Space, The
      Green Death, Genesis Of The Daleks, and the only surviving episode of
      The Web Of Fear.

      People + Arts Latin America (Mexico and various countries southward)
      is starting a run of Series 2 of Doctor Who this coming Friday. It is
      not clear if they are starting with Christmas Invasion or New Earth -
      the website has few details.

      BBC Entertainment http://www.bbcentertainment.com (regional channel
      in Asia) will begin repeating Series 1 as of 9 July.

      Australian network UKTV http://www.uktv.com.au will have a Doctor Who
      weekend. Saturday 9 June - all of Series 1 in a marathon starting at
      Noon. Sunday 10 June - all of Series 2 in a marathon starting at Noon
      (first showing of Series 2 on UKTV Australia). In addition, UKTV is
      airing Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down. This is only the 2nd time
      that the Series 1 Confidential episodes have aired outside the UK
      (they currently run on US public TV stations) and the 1st time that
      Series 2 Confidential episodes have aired outside the UK. Great
      chance to catch up in the lead-up to Torchwood on network Ten and
      Series 3 of Doctor Who on the ABC. Exact start times for episodes
      unclear as of this writing.

      CBC Canada http://www.cbc.ca/television - it's official. They're
      starting Series 3 on June 18 at 8PM with Smith And Jones, not The
      Runaway Bride.

      SciFi US http://www.scifi.com has updated their plans for their
      Series 3 premiere. Friday July 6 will be the big Who day. An 8 hour
      marathon of Series 2 episodes from 8AM to 4PM EDT. The Runaway Bride
      (Christmas special) has its US premiere at 8PM and 11:30PM EDT in a
      90 minute timeslot. Smith And Jones airs at 9:30PM and 1AM EDT.
      (Painkiller Jane airs at 10:30PM that night.) On July 13, Doctor Who
      settles into a regular time of 9PM and 11PM EDT. No additional
      encores at this time - tune in on Fridays if you don't want to have
      to wait a while for repeats.

      During Series 2, the repeat time of Doctor Who moved repeatedly due
      to SciFi's fiddling around with the schedule. So the 11PM time could
      change. The 9PM slot ought to be stable - well, stableish.

      BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com Memorial Day marathon - that's
      this Monday:
      9AM to 7PM EDT (6AM to 4PM PDT) - 10 hours of Series 1 (Unquiet Dead,
      Aliens Of London, and World War Three are skipped).

      SciFi US marathons:
      Wednesday May 30 - 8AM to 4PM
      Friday June 8 - 8AM to 4PM
      Friday July 6 - 8AM to 4PM (same day as Series 3 premiere)
