      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.

      (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.
