      BBC Entertainment India 10PM and 1:35AM - Blink
      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
      BBC Three 7PM and 4AM GMT - Doctor Who Confidential Christmas 2008
      (60 minutes)
      BBC Three 8PM GMT - Doctor Who: Top 5 Christmas Moments (10 minutes)
      New Years Day 2009:
      BBC One, BBC HD (simulcast) 1:50PM GMT - Doctor Who At The Proms
      (concert, 60 minutes, TV premiere)

      12 days till the new Doctor Who episode on BBC One - The Next Doctor!
      Christmas Day at 6PM GMT. A one hour Doctor Who Confidential airs on
      BBC Three at 7PM GMT, with a 10 minute look at top Doctor Who
      Christmas moments at 8PM GMT.

      As for Doctor Who At The Proms, the concert recorded in July, it is
      now scheduled to premiere at the same day and time on BBC One and BBC
      HD - Thursday New Years Day 2009 at 1:50PM GMT. There will be repeats
      on BBC HD. The broadcast version is 60 minutes. There may be an
      extended version on the BBC Red Button service after the initial
      broadcast.

      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.

      There was a live Doctor Who: Podshock on December 7 looking back at
      Series 4. It included contributors from a number of podcasts. Next
      live Podshock on the 28th, with regular episodes also going out.

      There will be a cast change at the DWO Whocast. British co-host Tony
      has departed the show. Trevor remains and a new co-host will be named
      soon. Michael (host of the Tin Dog Podcast) is substituting as co-
      host on an interim basis. Best wishes for Tony and the changing
      Whocast team as they set off in their new directions. The DWO Whocast
      is about to do its 100th podcast, joining Podshock and Radio Free
      Skaro as Doctor Who pod programs to pass 100 episodes.
      Congratulations.

      Canadians with broadband internet connections can go to the CBC
      website http://www.cbc.ca/doctorwho and watch the full version of
      Journey's End. It is expected up sometime today (December 13). The
      version shown on CBC TV was edited down to 44 minutes due to the time
      slot. The video will not work outside of Canada.

      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.
