      Section A - Everything But The PBS Stations And Podcasts

      Upcoming premiere broadcasts:
      Sunday 7 December:
      BBC Entertainment Africa 6:40PM and Midnight CAT - Doomsday, pt 2
      Monday 8 December:
      BBC 4:35PM - Sarah Jane - Revenge Of The Bane, pt 1
      CBBC 5:15PM - Sarah Jane - Revenge Of The Bane, pt 2
      Tuesday 9 December:
      BBC Entertainment Asia 7PM and 9:55PM and 2:20AM Thai time - The
      Family Of Blood, pt 2
      BBC Entertainment Asia 7:45PM and 10:40PM Thai time - DWC Bad Blood
      SciFi NL Netherlands 8:30PM and 11:50PM CET - Last Of The Time Lords,
      pt 3
      Wednesday 10 December:
      BBC Entertainment India 10PM and 1:35AM - The Family Of Blood, pt 2
      Friday 12 December:
      CBC 9PM (9:30PM Newfoundland) - Journey's End, pt 2
      Sunday 21 December:
      BBC HD 4:10PM GMT - Doctor Who At The Proms (concert, 60 minutes, TV
      premiere)
      Christmas Day 2008:
      BBC One 6PM GMT - The Next Doctor (60 minutes, World Premiere!)
      BBC Entertainment Poland 7PM and 12:30AM CET - The Runaway Bride
      New Years Day 2009:
      BBC One 1:50PM GMT - Doctor Who At The Proms (concert, 60 minutes,
      non-HD premiere)

      As you can see, we have a premiere day and time for "The Next
      Doctor", the latest episode in the Doctor Who saga. Christmas Day at
      6PM GMT. 1 hour episode. The start of BBC's Christmas night
      festivities. The countdown commences.

      As for Doctor Who At The Proms, the concert recorded in July, most
      viewers will get to see it on BBC One on New Years Day at 1:50PM GMT.
      Now, the BBC HD station has it scheduled several times, including 2
      airings in December. If so, this would be 1) the first ever true
      Doctor Who HD installment (even if it is a concert instead of an
      episode) and 2) a situation where those with BBC HD can see the
      concert up to 11 days early.

      There is currently no listing for a Doctor Who Confidential episode
      to tie in with The Next Doctor. I fully expect that there will be a
      Confidential on BBC Three - their Christmas schedule is very
      tentative.

      This Monday, at 5:15PM GMT on the CBBC channel - the Sarah Jane
      Adventures Series 2 finale! With Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier
      Lethbridge-Stewart (retired). BBC One viewers get part 1 at 4:35PM
      that day, with part 2 one week later.

      CBC TV Canada will air Journey's End, the 4th Series finale - this
      Friday at 9PM (9:30PM Newfoundland). One slight problem - the time
      slot is 60 minutes including 16 minutes or so of commercials. The
      episode is a tad over 63 minutes uncut. So either there will be a
      last minute decision to extend the show or the Canadian broadcast
      will be heavily edited. Sorry Canada.

      SciFi Netherlands is finishing Series 3 of Doctor Who this week.
      Voyage Of The Damned airs next week, then new episodes stop for a
      while.

      To help equalize the size of Sections A and B, I have moved the
      Podcasts to the end of Section B.

      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.
