      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide. Vote Saxon.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Section A - Everything But The PBS Stations

      Upcoming premiere broadcasts:
      Saturday 4 August:
      BBC Entertainment 6 and 11PM Thailand Time - New Earth
      ABC Australia 7:30PM - The Lazarus Experiment
      een 3:55PM - The Age Of Steel, pt 2 of 2
      Monday 7 August:
      CBC 8PM - 42
      Thursday 9 August:
      TV3 Ireland Late 1:40AM - Boom Town
      Friday 10 August:
      SciFi US 8PM + Midnight EDT - The Lazarus Experiment (new time)
      Sunday 19 August:
      Prime New Zealand 7:30PM - The Runaway Bride
      Saturday 15 September:
      Ned 2 7:30PM - New Earth (new channel)
      Fall 2007:
      BBC One?/CBBC - The Sarah Jane Adventures - Series 1
      Christmas 2007:
      BBC One - Voyage Of The Damned (60 minutes)

      CBC Canada's September schedule is up. "Utopia" (pt 1 of 3) will air
      on 3 September (the sports games are due to be over before start
      time), but be pre-empted on 10 September due to the Canadian Country
      Music Awards. "The Sound Of Drums" airs on 24 September, with 3rd
      series finale "Last Of The Time Lords" on 24 September. 8PM all time

      (Note - the sports games are due to end at 7:30PM Eastern, which
      would conflict with Utopia in the Atlantic and Newfoundland time
      zones. If the awards show on the 10th of September is live, then it
      would start *after* the Doctor Who time slot in those time zones. The
      schedule portion of the CBC's website was having troubles this
      morning, and I was unable to check each time zone to see how the CBC
      was handling this situation.)

      SciFi Channel US moves the first Doctor Who broadcast from 9PM
      Eastern to 8PM Eastern this Friday to make room for the new Flash
      Gordon series. First up at 8PM - The Lazarus Experiment. The 11PM
      Eastern repeat moves to Midnight this week before settling at 1AM
      next week (42). This midseason schedule change has been planned all
      along - SciFi wanted Flash to have the best time slot once it began
      but didn't want repeats between Doctor Who and Painkiller Jane during
      July and early August. With the September schedule up, Doctor Who
      looks on course to run through October 5 (pre-empted on August 31 for
      a Labor Day weekend Stargate marathon).

      Prime in New Zealand has officially scheduled the Series 3 premiere
      for Sunday 19 August at 7:30PM (previous series aired Thursdays at
      7:30PM). The Runaway Bride gets a 90 minute slot.

      Belgian station een returns Doctor Who to the lineup today after a 3
      week gap to air The Age Of Steel. There is a notice up for the 11th
      saying that Doctor Who moves to a later date. No idea what the start
      date will be for the rest of Series 2.

      Netherlands Doctor Who fans get Who on Ned 2 instead of Ned 3 this
      fall - Saturdays starting 15 September. The new episodes start with
      New Earth - The Christmas Invasion aired on Ned 3 last December. Many
      viewers in the Netherlands also get BBC One from the UK and een from

      BBC Kids viewers - it is too soon to tell if this is just a one
      weekend event or a new schedule - Doctor Who is pre-empted by all
      night marathons of Beauty And The Geek (UK) on 8 September and Little
      Britain on 9 September.

      For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office
