TWIDW Supplemental - May 30, 2006
(posted 30th May 2006, 1:38pm - TWIDW post #0405)
Hey all,
I hope that many of our American readers were able to
enjoy the nice extended weekend for the Memorial Day
Holiday and are comfortable settling back into the
work week. I'm going to try to make this brief and
hopefully be able to expand on this a little for
tomorrow's edition.
First of all, Doctor Who Series 1 (Season 27) with Christopher Eccleston is returning to Canadian broadcast TV tonight. It'll air beginning at 8PM on the French Canadian channel, Canal Z or Ztélé (Cable 683 on Rogers), dubbed into French with the first episode, Rose. There are same week repeats for scheduled for Saturday mornings at 8AM and late Sundays at 3AM. Also on the same channel, the 1996 TV movie with Paul McGann will make an appearance next Saturday at 9PM. I believe this is the first time the TV movie will be shown on a exclusively Canadian broadcaster.
Next, Hungarian TV viewers have another chance to see
series 1 again as Cool TV is now repeating it on
Fridays at 11:15PM CET. This week's episode is "The
Unquiet Dead".
Finally, there's a relatively new US-based internet to
TV DVR service called Akimbo which requires its own
special hardware and media center setup. Currently,
they offer some programming including Doctor Who,
although it appears they're only offering "The Deadly
Assassin" (Tom Baker) via their service at this time.
It's probably worth looking into, if you want to
integate your TV/sound setup with an internet DVR
service. More info can be found at and
That's it for now.
Until next time, take care.
