CANADA - Fans of Doctor Who on BBC Kids , take note. Beginning Saturday, 6 July, the weekend omnibus Doctor Who broadcast times will change slightly. Stories will still air at 3:30PM Saturdays and Sundays, but the repeats will move to 10:30PM instead of 10PM. Weekday airing times remain unaffected. The weekday episodes are now finishing season 15 (new to BBC Kids) and are about to begin season 16 (also new to BBC Kids). Their current package runs through The Power of Kroll (5th story in the 6 story Key To Time series), and BBC Kids will go back to season 12 with Robot on Monday 29 July. The weekend stories are in season 14 right now, and will enter season 15 afterwards.
