      Davison, details still unknown
      Christmas 2007:
      BBC One - Voyage Of The Damned (60 minutes)

      BBC One and CBBC in the UK are currently running the 1st full series
      of the Sarah Jane Adventures, with Elisabeth Sladen reprising her
      role as Sarah Jane Smith from the 1970s Doctor Who episodes and The
      Five Doctors (and the School Reunion episode of the new show, Series
      2, and the 1981 K9 & Company pilot, and other projects).

      SciFi http://www.scifi.com is airing Last Of The Time Lords this
      Friday at 8PM and 1AM Eastern to conclude the 3rd Series. Expect them
      to use the international version that the BBC is supplying to
      stations who will not run the 51 1/2 minute version of this episode.
      Canadian viewers saw the episode on the CBC last Monday - the CBC cut
      additional material beyond the BBC's edit - the proper "international
      version" edit is at the CBC Doctor Who http://www.cbc.ca/doctorwho
      site for the next few weeks. It can only be accessed by computers the
      website believes are operating out of Canada.

      It has largely escaped notice so far, but BBC America
      http://www.bbcamerica.com ran a brief ad Wednesday hailing "BBC
      America HD - Coming in 2008". Most of the programming on BBC America
      was either produced in HD (ex: Torchwood, Robin Hood) or a standard
      definition widescreen format (ex: Doctor Who, Ramsey's Kitchen
      Nightmares), so they should benefit nicely from the bandwidth and
      widescreen presentation. SciFi Channel HD should be on the air soon
      as well, which could benefit future broadcasts of Doctor Who on that
      station, at least if you get the HD version of the channel.

      BBC7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 is currently repeating the Big Finish
      8th Doctor audios that have previously run on the digital radio
      station. 1 hour weeknights at 6PM and Midnight BST. BBC7 can be heard
      live online through Windows Media Player or Realplayer. Shows can be
      heard through the Listen Again page for 7 days using RealPlayer.

      Torchwood schedule information is included in the Torchwood This Week
      column http://groups.yahoo.com/group/torchwood .

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