      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide. Vote Saxon.

      BBC One?/CBBC - The Sarah Jane Adventures - Series 1
      Christmas 2007:
      BBC One - Voyage Of The Damned (60 minutes)

      New Zealand fans - Prime http://www.primetv.co.nz starts Series 3
      this Sunday the 19th at 7:30PM with The Runaway Bride in a 90 minute
      timeslot. This is a change from the first 2 series which aired on
      Thursdays at 7:30PM.

      Japanese Who fans - NHK 3 starts Doctor Who this Tuesday at 7PM with
      Rose. The first 2 series already aired on BS-2, but this is the first
      over the air broadcast of the episodes. If anyone you know hasn't
      seen the episodes, their excuses have run out.

      Party like it's 1965 on 25 August as BBC Two
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbctwo airs "Dr. Who And The Daleks", the
      theatrical remake of the first Dalek story. With Peter Cushing as Dr.
      Who, Roberta Tovey as Susan, and the Daleks as themselves. It airs
      from 3:20 to 4:40PM British Standard Time.

      BBC Prime http://www.bbcprime.com is now running ads confirming that
      they have Doctor Who. They have also updated the FAQ on their
      website. Rose starts the series on Saturday 1 September at 7PM
      Central European Time. BBC Prime covers Europe (except the British
      Isles), Africa, and parts of Asia. A seperate BBC Prime service for
      the rest of Asia was discontinued a while back and rolled into BBC
      Entertainment http://www.bbcentertainment.com , which is currently
      airing Series 2 of Doctor Who in its territories.

      BBC America's http://www.bbcamerica.com plans for Doctor Who Series 2
      are becoming clearer. Episodes premiere at 7PM Eastern/4PM Pacific on
      Saturdays starting 8 September. Episodes repeat at 2AM Eastern/11PM
      Pacific. They repeat on Sunday and once the following Saturday, with
      the exact times moving week to week based on other programming
      events. Since the episodes already aired on SciFi, BBC America is
      leaving them out of prime time (where Series 1 ran) in favor of
      spinoff Torchwood, which will be having its US premiere on BBC
      America. BBC America still gives shows 46 minutes an hour versus 44
      on SciFi, so nearly all the regular episodes will be complete (or at
      least more complete than SciFi's broadcasts of the same episodes).
      However, The Christmas Invasion will be heavily edited, as it will
      get a regular 1 hour timeslot, while SciFi aired it uncut in a 90
      minute timeslot (with lots of ads).

      For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media
      http://www.c21media.net .
