      Congratulations to The Sarah Jane Adventures - Sarah and the gang get
      a mini-episode during Red Nose Day for Comic Relief 2009 (Friday 13
      March 7PM GMT). David Tennant is also involved in the night. Doctor
      Who had a memorable Comic Relief outing in 1999 in the epic tale "The
      Curse Of Fatal Death", starring Rowan Atkinson as the 9th Doctor and
      Jonathan Pryce as The Master.

      Ireland - TV3 is starting a repeat run of Doctor Who, over a year
      after their last broadcast of the show. Hopefully the repeats of
      Series 2 (or is it Series 1?)) are a precurser to airing Series 3.
      The repeats start late Thursday 19 February at 1:35AM.

      Gallifrey - Some of the readership is at the Gallifrey Convention
      http://www.gallifreyone.com in Los Angeles right now. I had hoped to
      make it there again (I was there in 2007 and 2008), but it will not
      be possible this time. I am planning to be back next year - whether
      you like it, or not.

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

      TV4 - look at the tapes, write down the episode titles, put the
      titles on the listings so we know which episode is which. Guessing is
      clearly not working anymore. This little bit of help will make it
      easier for us all to follow along. That said, thanks to Linda, who
      watched this past week's episodes and let me know what was airing, so
      there is at least a chance that the listings will now be correct.
