      (concert, 60 minutes, TV premiere)
      Saturday 3 January:
      BBC One 5:35PM GMT - Doctor Who Confidential - The Ten Doctors (35
      minutes)
      Sunday 18 January:
      BBC Entertainment South Africa 7PM and Midnight CAT - The Runaway

      Congratulations to The Next Doctor. The overnight ratings for the
      Christmas Day broadcast averaged 11.7 million viewers. #2 show of the
      day behind Wallace & Gromit, pending timeshift results (one of the
      Eastenders episodes was right behind Who). #2 highest rated episode
      since the relaunch (beaten only by last year's Christmas episode
      Voyage Of The Damned). Top 10 TV show of the year so far. The numbers
      will adjust a bit once time shifted viewing is counted in around 2
      weeks.

      There is a full length podcast commentary for The Next Doctor. It is
      already on iTunes like the Series 4 commentaries, will air on BBC
      Radio 7 on Sunday 28 December at 6PM and Midnight GMT (available for
      a week thereafter), and is an extra audio track on this Friday's
      repeat of the episode on BBC Three.

      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.

      BBC One gets a new Doctor Who Confidential special - The Ten Doctors -
      Saturday 3 January at 5:35PM. All the Doctors in just over half an
      hour.

      ABC Australia will get The Next Doctor on Sunday 25 January at
      7:30PM, just one month after the UK premiere. This is being counted
      as fast-tracking. So far no other networks are known to be fast
      tracking the episode. The closer we get to a simultaneous worldwide
      experience, the better, so congratulations Austrailia!

      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 at 1PM EST/10AM PST/6PM GMT, with regular
      episodes also going out.

      KBS2 South Korea http://www.kbs.co.kr premieres Doctor Who Series 4
      this Sunday at 11:35PM. Expect 2 episodes most weeks, but not this
      week, as Voyage Of The Damned is rather long. See their Doctor Who
      page http://www.kbs.co.kr/2tv/enter/doctorwho/index.html . As in
      previous series, the main audio track is in Korean and there is an
      English track available as a secondary audio. Based on what I've been
      told in the past, this is Prime time for TV watching in South Korea.
      Thanks to our Korean understanding readers for helping decipher the
      page.

      There will be major changes to This Week In Doctor Who starting with
      the January 3, 2009 edition. I am still considering various tweaks,
      but here is the tentative plan to make everything easier to use in
      2009. I am trying a bit of branding and breaking down information to
      simplify efforts to find what you want. Should be particularly useful
      if you like to clip a bit to forward somewhere else (which does
      happen). Take a look:

      Column 1 - TWIDW: This Week In Doctor Who - the classic column. No
      more Sarah Jane listings. Listings for North and South America
      (essentially the Western Hemisphere) removed. Listings for stations
      with rights to Doctor Who that aren't airing the show right now -
      removed.

      Column 2 - TWIDW: Western Hemisphere (title may change) - everything
      Doctor Who from North and South America, inclduing almost all the PBS
      listings. Listings for PBS stations that aren't airing the show right
      now - removed.

      Column 3 - TWIDW: The Sarah Jane Schedules (premiere) - The Sarah
      Jane Adventures schedules all together and easy to read. Also - all
      the podcasts. Also - the listings for Doctor Who stations not
      currently airing the show that still have rights (all over the world,
      including PBS). If the K9 series ever gets finished and reaches the
      airwaves, it will be here. Essentially the catch-all column that can
      morph into a proper Sarah Jane column as the show's influence spreads
      around the globe.

      Column 4 - TWIDW: Torchwood This Week - apart from adding the TWIDW
      branding, this column stays the same.

      Outpost Gallifrey readers used to getting the combined This Week In
      Doctor Who column - you will see columns 1,2, and 3 in order on the
      This Week In Doctor Who page (well, the stations not airing Who will
      probably get clipped).

      Torchwood schedule information is included in the Torchwood This Week
      column http://groups.yahoo.com/group/torchwood .

      For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office
