      ABC Australia 7:30PM - The Next Doctor (60 minutes)

      This section remains the same, but I have taken TWIDW off of the
      front of it. Same with Torchwood This Week. The Western Hemisphere
      Doctor Who column is now This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere.
      The one with Sarah Jane, Podcasts, and other matters is now This Week
      In Doctor Who Spinoffs.

      Torchwood This Week's schedule information will now be at the bottom
      of this column in the version on the Outpost Gallifrey News Page.

      SciFi Overdrive http://www.scifioverdrive.com has Joey Reynolds on
      both hours of last weekend's episode to discuss the casting of Matt
      Smith as the Doctor. Jarrod Cooper of the Hurricane Who convention
      arrives for the second hour. For listening details, check the
      Scifioverdrive website. Hopefully the links are working now so we can
      hear the show.

      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!

      For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media
