Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who on Television. A quiet week for the Doctor, with many US stations pre-empting him for pledge drives, and not much going on overseas. Naturally, now that I've said it's a quiet week, big things will happen in the next few days and next week's column will be an epic. But that's in the future. So, let's get on with things.
South America - Still need help from someone who has Uniseries down there. What Doctor Who episodes are they airing?
USA - The 1996 Doctor Who Movie (starring Paul McGann) is airing on the Sci-Fi Channel on Sunday, June 30 at 5PM Eastern. Use the schedulebot to adjust for local time.

As of this writing, I can not find any listings that will say which episodes are airing, or in what language. I'm serious, guys. We need to hear from people in Argentina or neighboring countries with this channel.

Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
