Denmark TV station DR 1 airs Doctor Who Tuesdays at 11PM CET starting this Tuesday 27 June. Late start due to being too scary for kids.
CBC TV has scheduled the 2nd Series
premiere of Doctor Who for Monday 9 October (Canadian Thanksgiving
Day) at 8PM. Since CBC already aired The Christmas Invasion, they
are expected to begin the run with New Earth. Series 1 is now

KBTC/KCKA 28,15 Tacoma/Centralia, WA adds Doctor Who to its regular schedule this Saturday at 7PM PDT, 2 weeks after a pledge night. KBTC is the 3rd US public TV broadcaster currently airing Doctor Who (Maryland Public TV and Iowa Public TV also air the show). First up - the first 2 episodes of The Three Doctors. As of July 1, episodes will air twice - 7PM and 12:30AM, the same time periods Doctor Who had on this station in 2004 and before.
Early notice - kids tie in show "Totally Doctor Who" will air on BBC
Two instead of BBC One on Thursday 29 June due to special
programming. Doctor Who is currently scheduled to air at 7PM on BBC
One on 24 June (Fear Her) and 6:45PM on 1 July (Army Of Ghosts).
With the World Cup and Wimbledon, schedules are fluid right now, so
keep an eye out for any last minute schedule changes.
The BBC Press Office and C21 Media often announce when a Doctor Who
international sale occurs. Worth keeping an eye on, just in case.
