      CBC 9PM (9:30PM Newfoundland) - 4th Series Premiere!

      SciFi Channel UK http://www.scifi.co.uk has a 3 day Bank Holiday
      weekend marathon of classic Doctor Who (23 to 25 August) right now,
      which implies a new home for Classic Doctor Who in the UK as autumn
      approaches. No Doctor Who episodes on SciFi UK in September or
      October - hmm.

      SciFi Channel Netherlands http://www.scifi-tv.nl has obtained the
      first run rights to Series 3 of Doctor Who for the Netherlands. A 2
      episode premiere with the 1965 Peter Cushing Dalek movie begin airing
      on the channel on 16 September, with many same week repeats. 1
      episode per week thereafter. Series 2 premiered on Nederland 2.

      Channel Jimmy in Italy http://www.jimmy140.it now has some September
      schedules up, with Doctor Who (Series 3) airing all month. We had
      been waiting for word as there were reports the channel could be
      going away.

      CANADA - BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca does not have Classic Doctor
      Who or the Sarah Jane Adventures in the fall 2008 schedule. This is
      the first time Doctor Who has been absent since the channel's launch
      in 2001. Hopefully we can get word from BBC Kids whether the shows
      will return in 2009. In particular - will BBC Kids air Sarah Jane
      Adventures Series 2? For now, Doctor Who and Sarah Jane air through
      at least the 14th of September ...

      CANADA - Ztele http://www.ztele.com does not have Doctor Who (new or
      reruns) in the fall schedule. Odds are Series 4 will air sometime in
      2009. Time will tell. Torchwood fans should look in the Torchwood
      This Week column to be ready for that show's return later in the fall.

      UK - BBC One http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcone begins a repeat run of the
      Sarah Jane Adventures Sunday 31 August at 2PM BST (3:40PM BBC One
      Scotland). The 5 Series 1 schedules are expected to air in omnibus
      format weekly. Series 2 is expected in late September on BBC One and

      UK - BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree is suspending their
      repeat run of Doctor Who after 28 August, replacing it with a
      weeknight double header of The Real Hustle. No reason is known for
      the schedule change (Doctor Who episodes were scheduled for 31 August
      to 4 September at one point). UKTV Gold will end their weekday run of
      Series 1 and 2 episodes on Tuesday 9 September, with erratic airings
      of a few episodes on weekends to finish the month.

      Torchwood schedule information is included in the Torchwood This Week
      column http://groups.yahoo.com/group/torchwood . Of note - the radio
      episode "Lost Souls" will air on BBC Radio 4 on 10 September in the
      Afternoon Play spot.

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

      is offered for free with commercials. See the website to determine if
      your provider may offer this service. Based on the paucity of
      information on the episodes airing, I guess they want you to get the

      in a fairly amusing manner. Temporarily doing commentary on classic
      Who stories courtesy of their Randomiser.
      Current episode - #96 - Filer!! Commentary on The Claws Of Axos. The
      Three Canadians discuss a bit of news, then do a commentary focused
      on the adventures of Bill Filer and Pigbin Josh.
      Sunday or Monday - #97 - Commentary on another Classic Who story, and

      Current episode - 1.01 "Rose" (posted 6 August). To tide the time
      till new Who, the Cardiff gang go back to 2005 to look at the

      Next episode - 14 - Review of Daleks In Manhattan/Evolution Of The
      Daleks (paid subscribers only)
      Cliff and Stephanie Ravenscraft review Doctor Who episodes on a
      weekly basis. Start of new installments as they review Series 4,
      skipping Voyage Of The Damned for now and focusing on the
      Doctor/Donna episodes.
      GSPN.tv is a network of podcasts on TV shows, daily life, religion,
      and other issues that interest the 3 Ravenscrafts. Doctor Who Fan
      Podcast becomes one of the pay programs in the network starting with
      episode 12. The existing paying audience ranked Doctor Who dead last
      in their interests (annoying the hosts who want to do the show but
      are living off the revenue from their podcasts). If you subscribe to
      their podcasts in order to hear the new Doctor Who episodes, be sure
      to alert them that you are doing this. Half the episodes expected to
      be free, half paid.
