      SWEDEN - TV4 Science Fiction has just about reached the end of the Sylvester McCoy episodes (it is hard to track exactly). TV4 Science Fiction has aired virtually all of surviving Classic Doctor Who in weekday format for the past year and a bit. More networks should do that - congratulations TV4 Science Fiction.

      AUSTRALIA - ABC1 is interrupting its repeat run of Series 2 following this Tuesday's episode - The Idiot's Lantern. It is not known if the repeat run will resume later. UKTV Australia continues its repeats of Series 1 and will soon enter Series 2.
