      If you are looking for spoilers for the 3rd Series Finale (Last Of
      The Time Lords), go to the BBC Press Office
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice , click on TV Week 27, click on
      Saturday 30 June, and there you have it. It's also on the Outpost
      Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com News Page for June 15th under
      spoiler protection. In my personal opinion, the BBC released too much
      information this time. Not only does it answer a question on the
      casting of a certain man/woman for a certain part, it also gives away
      a very large portion of the plotline in the space of one paragraph.
      Read at your own risk.

      Sorry for viewers of BFBS - didn't catch that special programming was
      bumping the Doctor Who schedule around. This week's version should be
      more accurate, albeit spartan. Looks like special programming has
      resulted in the last 4 Doctor Who episodes (Blink and onwards)
      running a week behind the UK instead of in synch, with Confidential
      and Totally Doctor Who shifting back a week as well.

      The Doctor Who Information Network http://www.dwin.org has teamed
      with the CBC to revamp their Canadian Doctor Who website
      http://www.cbc.ca/doctorwho . It has much more information and a
      Series 3 trailer. It looks like the CBC site will be a useful
      resource for Canadian viewers similar to when Series 1 ran.

      The Canadian premiere of Series 3 is this Monday the 16th at 8PM
      (8:30PM Newfoundland). Smith And Jones at 8, The Runaway Bride at
      Midnight. There is at least one CBC affiliate that I understand airs
      The Late Show With David Letterman. I do not know if that station
      with air The Runaway Bride with the network, at a later date, or not
      at all. Hopefully that question can be answered by next week.

      12 days till Doctor Who returns to ABC Australia. 20 days till Doctor
      Who returns to SciFi USA.

      Graham Norton made a cameo on last week's Doctor Who, his first
      appearance since the audio from his BBC Three show was accidentally
      played during the first broadcast of Rose in 2005. This time Graham
      got to be the first fellow to promote his show (series finale to Any
      Dream Will Do) while the Doctor Who closing credits were being shrunk
      on BBC One. While not as visually jarring as other networks' efforts
      to squish credits, it did showcase what I hope was a mistake -
      credits weren't just shrunk, they were partially cut off. Here's
      hoping for proper framing tonight - or better yet, don't shrink the
      credits in the first place.

      Next week's edition of TWIDW will go out on Friday June 22nd. It
      returns to Saturday on June 30th.
