UK - You thought new Doctor Who in the UK was over till Christmas,
right? Well, BBC7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 and Big Finish
http://www.doctorwho.co.uk are out to prove you wrong. Paul McGann
returns as The 8th Doctor and Sheridan Smith returns as Lucy Miller
in eight 50 minute full cast radio episodes - Sundays at 6PM and
Midnight UK Time starting 19 October. Paul McGann played the Doctor
in the 1996 TV Movie and in many Big Finish direct to cd audio
stories since 2001. He is the official 8th Doctor, the link between
Sylvester McCoy (7th Doctor in Classic Who - late 1980s) and
Christopher Eccleston (9th Doctor/New Series 1/2005).
This is actually the second set of Paul McGann audios made for BBC7.
An earlier set of 8 Paul McGann/Sheridan Smith episodes ran in late
2006/early 2007. That time the episodes aired on the radio before
getting released on CD. For these new episodes the CD releases came
first, which is why the radio run was delayed a bit. No word on
whether the previous BBC7/Big Finish Doctor Who series is going to
UK - Did you miss the Sarah Jane Adventures 2nd Series premiere this
past Monday? Hurry. The CBBC Channel repeats The Last Sontaran part 1
TONIGHT at 5PM BST. The Last Sontaran part 2 repeats on BBC One this
Monday at 4:35PM and on the CBBC Channel on the 11th at 5PM BST. The
episodes should also be available on iPlayer for UK residents at this

SCANDANAVIA - the BBC Press Office http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice
announced Wednesday that Scandanavia will see the launch of a new set
of BBC channels in December. BBC Entertainment Scandanavia will
replace BBC Prime in the country and will likely air Doctor Who and
Torchwood. BBC HD will also launch in Scandanavia and could also air
Torchwood. The BBC will launch the new suite of channels and retire
BBC Prime in all of the Nordic countries - it is not clear if this
will happen simultaneously or if it will be just one Nordic country
at a time. Each country is supposed to get their own version of these
channels. BBC Prime continues for now in other countries, though the
eventual plan is to replace it altogether will lots of localized BBC
Torchwood schedule information is included in the Torchwood This Week
column http://groups.yahoo.com/group/torchwood .

Illusion TV is a service providing science fiction On Demand
programming to cable providers (no deals with satellite companies
yet). If your digital cable service has Illusion TV, all programming
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
service before you know what you will be seeing.

to alert them that you are doing this. Half the episodes expected to
be free, half paid.
