Congratulations to The Sarah Jane Adventures - Sarah and the gang get
a mini-episode during Red Nose Day for Comic Relief 2009 (Friday 13
March 7PM GMT). David Tennant is also involved in the night. Doctor
Who had a memorable Comic Relief outing in 1999 in the epic tale "The
Curse Of Fatal Death", starring Rowan Atkinson as the 9th Doctor and
Jonathan Pryce as The Master.
South Korean station KBS2 is finishing their current run of Doctor
Who tonight with Journey's End.
Quiet week, but it gets us into the listings faster, so it's all
fine. If there are any late breaking developments, I will try to note
them on my new twitter feed. Note - the twitter feed (listed below)
is the Benjamin Elliott twitter feed, not the TWIDW twitter feed, so
not everything that appears is Doctor Who related.
For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office and C21 Media .
Listings for North and South America are in This Week In Doctor Who
Western Hemisphere. Sarah Jane Adventures and Podcasts are in This
Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs. Torchwood info is in Torchwood This Week.
