      BBC One - Voyage Of The Damned (60 minutes)

      BBC Entertainment http://www.bbcentertainment.com has overhauled its
      website and its schedule. Doctor Who will air noticeably less often.
      New times are noted in the main portion of the column.

      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).

      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.
      Final episode is Monday.

      BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com has added extra airings of
      Doctor Who and Torchwood to replace repeats of Wild At Heart. See the
      listings for the new Sunday Doctor Who times and Torchwood This Week
      for the new Torchwood airings. BBC America's schedule is fluid and
      repeats may be added/dropped with no notice.

      SciFi US http://www.scifi.com finished Series 3 of Doctor Who last
      night with Last Of The Time Lords. If you are upset over the heavy
      editing, remember that SciFi bought the international version of the
      episode from the BBC - a bit over 6 minutes of content were excised
      by the BBC before it got here. SciFi cut another minute or two
      themselves, but most of the cuts happened before they got involved.
      The episode will be complete on the DVD set, and if BBC Worldwide
      Americas is thinking clearly they will let public TV stations air the
      full version when/if Series 3 is sold to those stations.

      IllusionTV http://www.illusiontv.com , a service that provides sci-fi
      and fantasy shows to US cable companies' on-demand programming
      lineups, has announced that they will offer the classic Doctor Who
      series beginning in January 2008. It is unknown at this time how many
      stories will be offered. IllusionTV notes on their website that there
      is no cost to see their shows on demand beyond a customer's existing
      digital cable subscription. Shows do have commercials in order to pay
      the costs of the service. A pre-Doctor Who David Tennant can be seen
      in the 2005 Quatermass remake this month through the IllusionTV

      WGVU 35 Grand Rapids, MI is the 45th public TV station to pick up the
      Christopher Eccleston package in the US. See Section B for more

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