Early edition due to my ongoing move. This Week In Doctor Who
returns to normal from its new world headquarters next week.
Naturally, this would be a big week.
NRK 2 Norway is starting its Doctor Who broadcasts this Wednesday night. Here's hoping for large ratings and a new fanbase getting to enjoy the show. NRK 2 now has a Doctor Who page - see below.
On the other end, series 1 concludes in New Zealand on Prime TV Thursday at 7:30PM. Prime TV is giving the time slot to the series New Zealand's Top 100 History Makers.
Italian channel Jimmy has put up a Doctor Who page and announced its premiere date - 11 November at 9PM CET. Jimmy will have some sort of special after the first episode with cast and crew interviews.
There is a rumor circulating that digital channel France 4 has gotten the French rights to the series. No confirmation yet.
The BBC Press Office and C21 Media often announce when a Doctor Who
international sale occurs. Worth keeping an eye on, just in case.
