Canadian Alert - Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150AD on SPACE TONIGHT!!!
- This is a special report from This Week In Doctor Who.
Just got word that SPACE http://www.spacecast.com/ is repeating the Peter
Cushing movie Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150A.D. tonight (December 10, 2001) at
Midnight Eastern Time. This is apparently a complete version (but not
letterbox), with the opening segment *after* the opening credits just like
the DVD release (aka - the opening segment is in the wrong place). SPACE has
aired this film several times before. It is a remake of the William Hartnell
story "The Dalek Invasion Of Earth". Thanks to Tom Robinson for catching
So, here's when to tune in:
Eastern Standard Time - Midnight to 2AM
Central Standard Time - 11PM to 1AM
Mountain Standard Time - 10PM to Midnight
Pacific Standard Time - 9PM to 11PM
Atlantic Standard Time - 1AM to 3AM
Newfoundland Time - 1:30AM to 3:30AM
BBC Kids fans do not have to worry about missing Doctor Who on their
channel - this broadcast does not conflict with any of the 4 times BBC Kids
airs Doctor Who.
This has been a special alert from This Week In Doctor Who.
I am currently preparing another special report, which should come out in
the next day or two. A federal appeals court ruling in Richmond, VA last
week could result in some Americans who have been Doctor Who-less being able
to see Doctor Who on satellite TV beginning in January. (No, that's not why
the court made their ruling - this is just a side effect.) Satellite
providers who have been offering certain local stations to subscribers must
now offer all local stations in those markets, due to Must Carry rules. This
report will deal with how that may affect satellite subscribers, who could
suddenly get Doctor Who, and why. It will also result in a few changes in
the layout of the TWIDW column. Stay tuned for that.
