TWIDW Update: Doctor Who on Style UK Arabia/North Africa!
(posted 20th Dec 2005, 12:57pm - TWIDW post #0365)
Outpost Gallifrey has learned that Doctor
Who premieres this week on the Arabian peninsula and North Africa.
Style UK, a channel on the Showtime Arabia satellite system that airs mainly
British comedies and dramas, has acquired the show. 2 episodes are
airing per week. Episodes premiere Thursdays and Fridays at 7PM UAE
time, repeating the following day at 9AM and 4PM UAE. UAE time is 3
hours ahead of GMT - adjust for local time.
It appears that Showtime Arabia is starting with episode 1, but only
the Saturday 31 December 9AM showing has an episode description
(matching Aliens Of London). An episode of soap opera "Doctors" on 26
December has the same Aliens Of London description, probably in error.
The December schedule (assuming they start with Rose):
Thursday 22 December 7PM, Friday 23 December 9AM & 4PM - Rose
Friday 23 December 7PM, Saturday 24 December 9AM & 4PM - "The End Of
The World"
Thursday 29 December 7PM, Friday 30 December 9AM & 4PM - "The Unquiet
Friday 30 December 7PM, Saturday 31 December 9AM & 4PM - "Aliens Of
London" pt 1 of 2
Welcome aboard, Style UK viewers.
