      TWIDW: This Week In Doctor Who
      January 3, 2009 - Vol 12, No 1
      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide since 1998.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Today - 5:35PM GMT BBC One:
      Doctor Who Confidential - The Eleventh Doctor (35 minutes, title
      Well, time to end the speculation. The BBC is announcing the new
      actor to play the Doctor in this Doctor Who Confidential special.
      Obviously, if you read this after the episode airs, you already know
      who the next actor is, as the news will spread like wildfire. If you
      were expecting Doctor Who Confidential - The Ten Doctors - apparently
      that was a fake to keep us all off guard. Welcome, new actor -
      whoever you are.

      David Tennant will do 4 more Doctor Who specials to air across the
      next year. The new actor takes over for Series 5 - 13 episodes to air
      in 2010.

      The Other Upcoming premiere broadcasts:
      Saturday 3 January:
      KBS 2 South Korea Late 12:40AM Partners In Crime
      Sunday 4 January:
      KBS 2 South Korea Late 12:40AM The Fires Of Pompeii
      Tuesday 6 January:
      BBC Entertainment Asia 7PM and 9:50PM and 2:20AM Thai time - Last Of
      The Time Lords, pt 3
      BBC Entertainment India 7:50PM and 10:40PM Thai time - DWC The
      Valiant Quest
      France 4 8:35PM CET - A.T.M.O.S., pt 1
      France 4 9:25PM CET - A.T.M.O.S., pt 2
      Wednesday 7 January:
      BBC Entertainment India 10:30PM and 2:05AM - Last Of The Time Lords,
      pt 3
      Sunday 18 January:
      BBC Entertainment South Africa 7PM and Midnight CAT - The Runaway
      Sunday 25 January:
      ABC Australia 7:30PM - The Next Doctor (60 minutes)

      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!

      You may notice the slight title change on the column. Today is a
      slight relaunch of the column to make things easier to find. The
      Doctor news will be much bigger and overshadowing, but I already made
      the changes and can't delay the launch.

      1) TWIDW: This Week In Doctor Who (which you are reading now) is all
      the Doctor Who schedules for Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia
      (plus any appendant islands).
      2) Doctor Who schedule info for the Western Hemisphere is in TWIDW:
      Western Hemisphere Who Schedules.
      3) Torchwood schedule information is included in TWIDW: Torchwood
      This Week http://groups.yahoo.com/group/torchwood .
      4) Sarah Jane, podcast, and other spinoff info is in TWIDW: The Sarah
      Jane Schedules. To reduce clutter for the Doctor Who schedules, the
      lists of stations with Doctor Who rights that are not currently
      airing the show will be over here.

      Outpost Gallifrey News Page readers will get the Doctor Who and Sarah
      Jane sections looking pretty much as it has done.
