Series 2 continues in New Zealand and Australia with "School
Reunion" airing this week.
The BBC is publicizing their fall 2006 plans for their various
channels. Torchwood, Doctor Who's spin-off, is being noted as the
biggest show in BBC Three's fall schedule. The press release (with
some spoilers, and no actual premiere date in case you were curious)
is at:
4/bbcthree.shtml .
Malaysian Doctor Who fans - the Astro service is expected to present Series 2 of Doctor
Who in its entirety on the Box Office Events channel from 3 to 9
August. The exact schedule is not on their website yet.
UK and US Doctor Who fans are going to have a hard time finding any
episodes airing on TV for a little while.
No episodes are airing on TV in the UK this week on any channel at all (BBC7 will present episode 3 of the 2003 version of Shada on the radio Sunday). The 1996 TV Movie with Paul McGann will air late Saturday 5 August on UKTV Gold, and that's all the Doctor Who for the next few weeks.
SciFi US has no Doctor Who repeats scheduled through the end of August, so unless you live in the broadcast areas of Maryland Public TV , Iowa Public TV , or KBTC Tacoma, WA , Doctor Who's gone for at least a month.
The BBC Press Office and C21 Media often announce when a Doctor Who
international sale occurs. Worth keeping an eye on, just in case.
