      Canadian service Ztele begins airing Series 3 in French this Tuesday
      at 8PM EDT with "Smith And Jones" (French title not known yet). It is
      unknown when/if Ztele will air The Runaway Bride, which belongs
      between Doomsday and this episode. Episodes will air multiple times
      in a week. Ztele has the French rights for Torchwood, but Torchwood
      is not shown in the fall lineup, so it may be 2008 before the spinoff

      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 Two also sees a repeat of the animated story "The Infinite Quest"
      on Sunday 2 September at 9:10AM BST.

      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).

      SciFi US is pre-empting Doctor Who this Friday the 31st to air
      special programming for Labor Day weekend. This pre-emption was
      planned for months - it does not say anything about SciFi's views on
      Who. Yes, it is in the middle of a 2 part story (Human Nature and The
      Family Of Blood). SciFi also did a pre-emption between The Impossible
      Planet and The Satan Pit last year. SciFi did a pre-emption in the
      middle of a 2 parter of Stargate SG-1 in 2005. When a holiday weekend
      comes along, SciFi will interrupt its schedule for first run shows.

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