      As you see from the upcoming premieres, there is news on Doctor Who and Torchwood, which go in the Western Hemisphere and Torchwood sections of TWIDW.

      For some of you reading This Week In Doctor Who, change is coming. Outpost Gallifrey is completely retiring its News Page and Doctor Who Forum. This column has been on the news page at http://www.gallifreyone.com/thisweek.php for some time. If you read the column there, or on Outpost Gallifrey's RSS feed, then your final edition on these sources comes out Saturday July 25 (Outpost Gallifrey closes the news and forums on July 31st, with the site focusing exclusively on the Gallifrey conventions in LA each February).

      Alternate sources for This Week In Doctor Who:
      1) Subscribe to the Yahoo Group for This Week In Doctor Who (as noted at the top of the column).
      2) Read the Yahoo Group on the web without subscribing.
      3) Set up the RSS feed (as noted at the top of the column) so you can read new editions.
      4) Go to one of these newsgroups - rec.arts.drwho and rec.arts.drwho.moderated . It will appear around the same time as the Yahoo Group posting.
      5) http://www.gallifreyanembassy.org/vortex?q=blog - This Week In Doctor Who has a new agreement with the Gallifreyan Embassy site supplying the column as one of their blogs. I expect there will be some tweaking in future weeks, and the link may change.
      6) Another web site invited me to put the column on their service. I have been too busy to respond to them with a yes yet and figure out the details. If that comes together, it should be up by next week. The final number of mirrors is yet to be determined.

      This Week In Doctor Who has been proud to be associated with Outpost Gallifrey in one form or another since July 1998 when the column began. The column will stay on the OG News Page till the end in late July.

      For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media http://www.c21media.net .

      Listings for North and South America are in This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere. Sarah Jane Adventures, K9 and Podcasts are in This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs. Torchwood info is in Torchwood This Week.
