      CANADA - SPACE http://www.spacecast.com has issued a press release on their blog further clarifying their plans for Doctor Who's future.
      1) Planet Of The Dead airs on Saturday 25 July.
      2) As previously noted, SPACE has the specials. SPACE gets Series 5 in 2010.
      3) In March 2010, SPACE also gets Series 1 to 4, The Christmas Invasion, and The Runaway Bride, which previously aired on CBC. These episodes are currently rerunning on CBC Bold.
      4) In April 2010, SPACE gets Voyage Of The Damned, the 2007 Christmas special that as of this moment has not aired in Canada in English.
      5) They also mentioned that Torchwood Series 3 will premiere in Canada in July and confirmed that they have repeats to Torchwood Series 1 and 2.

      USA - BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com has issued a press release discussing the launch of BBC America HD and a press release discussing the airing of specials The Next Doctor and Planet Of The Dead. They also have an updated schedule up for Saturday June 27. We can glean some information from these announcements.
      1) The Next Doctor - USA premiere Saturday 27 June at 9PM, Midnight, and 3AM Eastern/6PM, 9PM, and Midnight Pacific. The episode is airing in a 75 minute time slot which will hopefully mean it airs complete.
      2) BBC America HD launches Monday 20 July (also the premiere date for new Torchwood, see Torchwood This Week).
      3) Planet Of The Dead - USA premiere Sunday 26 July at 8PM, 11PM, and 2AM Eastern/5PM, 8PM, and 11PM Pacific. No clue on length of time slot yet. First Doctor Who episode shot in HD, and it will air in HD. It will also get a DVD and Blu-Ray release on Tuesday 28 July - no clue on status of DVD for Next Doctor.
      4) The Waters Of Mars and the final 2 specials - airing later in 2009 and early 2010.

      Congratulations continue for BBC America. Thank you for planning an extended time slot for The Next Doctor. Remember, Planet Of The Dead, the new Torchwood episodes, and the sci-fi drama Being Human that you are premiering on 25 July will also need extended slots to avoid being butchered. Do not fall into your existing trap of airing a 60 minute show in a 60 minute slot with 14 minutes of commercials by hacking out 14 minutes from the show. I forgot to mention this last week, but a reader noted that you have a history of airing the BBC's 30 minute comedies uncut for time in 40 minute time slots. That was easier because you built a block of 3 shows, but it indicates clearly that you could air 50 minute, 55 minute, 60 minute dramas with extended slots - your audience will follow you if your quality is excellent. Fixed time slots that get shows cut - bad.

      It is only fair to note that BBC America did *not* publicly commit to Series 5 in 2010. I am going to assume that they would want the first run of Series 5, but until they choose to say something then we only have a committment for the end of David Tennant's run.

      West Virginia Public Broadcasting http://www.wvpbs.org is taking Doctor Who on a break again after the repeat of Doomsday on Thursday 12 June. Of course, with the sheer number of pre-emptions, some people might have thought Doctor Who started its vacation months ago.

      USA - KTEH http://www.kteh.org is taking votes now on their Doctor Who Youtube contest. See KTEH's Doctor Who blog (link at KTEH's schedule entry) for contest details. The winner of the six contenders gets to host a Doctor Who marathon. Meanwhile, Doctor Who will take most of June off after this Friday's showing of Army Of Ghosts. Doctor Who returns on Sunday 28 June at 11PM (new day - the Friday slot goes to a different show) with Doomsday.

      USA - Doctor Who - Series 3 (The Runaway Bride and the 13 episode 2007 series with Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones) are now distributed to Public TV stations by BBC Worldwide Americas, not American Public TV. Series 4 also seems to be available to buy - start date for Series 4 on Public TV stations is unknown. BBC Worldwide Americas also distributes classic Doctor Who to stations.

      The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 3:
      WXXI 21 Rochester, NY
      WTTW 11 Chicago, IL (expected July/August 2009)
      WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI
      WILL 12 Urbana, IL
      WTVP 47 Peoria, IL (currently in first run)
      Iowa Public TV
      Idaho Public TV
      Wisconsin Public TV (starts 6 June at 8:40PM)
      Milwaukee Public TV (currently in first run)
      KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT (currently in first run)
      OETA Oklahoma (currently in first run)
      KLRU 18 Austin, TX (currently in first run)
      Alaska Public TV (currently in first run)
      WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY (currently in first run)

      Now, I am confident that there are more stations with rights to Series 3 than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me. Somehow I doubt that BBC Worldwide Americas is going to send out a note with the stations who bought in like American Public TV did, leaving us in the dark till a station comes forward or it appears in their schedules.

      Series 2 is currently available to public TV stations in an American Public TV package until March 31, 2010. For the Series 1 and 2 packages, stations have bought the rights to cycle through the episodes 4 times. They are not required to do so. American Public TV is no longer offering Series 1 - I do not know if BBC Worldwide Americas will offer those stations to public TV stations now or not.

      2 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor Who run (1963-1989), but not New Who. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing Peter Davison episodes. WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes. WHRO seems to be ditching their Saturday evening British TV lineup after June 27, which would leave Doctor Who off the air.

      In the USA, all the full power TV stations are currently due to turn off their analog transmitters by 11:59PM on June 12, 2009 and go strictly to digital broadcasting. This is the most recent final immovable date to be passed by Congress and signed by the President. That is between now and next week's column. If you have over the air reception, you have hopefully upgraded to digital television by now. You will want to rescan your television on the morning of June 13 to get stations that have moved on the dial and stuff that you might now pull in thanks to the reduction in clutter from the analog shut down. There may be more tweaks later as some stations need to increase power, andnSince all the stations will be digital (DT) by next week's edition, I will drop the -dt stuff for simplicity.

      And now, the listings:

      Public TV Premiere Run:
      I have tried to get the correct digital switch day for each of these stations. The dates have shifted for some stations, and I have not been able to recheck them all. If you are watching these stations over the air instead of via cable or satellite provided locals, your best bet is to make sure you have a digital tuner NOW (built into your TV, VCR, DVR, DVDR, etc or as a set-top box). All full power stations will be digital only on the morning of June 13.
