Tuesday 1st September 1998

{This is a special UPDATE for This Week In Doctor Who. The regular column will arrive Friday.}
I have asked MPT for confirmation, but the newest version of their online schedule gives the new time for Doctor Who as Sunday night at Midnight beginning late September 6. The first episode scheduled for the slot is part 3 of The Daleks. This would be the first official day change in MPT's Who broadcasts since September 1986. They are remodeling their entire Saturday schedule, even knocking The Woodwright's Shop off the lineup for now!!!

Interestingly, an earlier version of Saturday, September 5th's schedule offered in the TV Guide's online information had Doctor Who staying on Saturdays, albeit also in the Midnight slot. The rest of MPT's new Saturday schedule (including Red Dwarf at 11:30PM) was the same for both listings.
This has been a special report from This Week In Doctor Who.

It was subsequently confirmed in the following edition that this was confusion in the online listings and that Doctor Who would be on Saturday at midnight.
