Over the course of May, UK Gold showed two "Dalek Day"s over the the Bank Holidays. This was due to licensing issues, as explained by the Manager of BBC Worldwide's television catalogue, Sue Cowley:

As it currently stands, stories written by Terry Nation cannot be screen on TV anywhere in the world during the latter half of 2003 and beyond. Hence the situation with PBS, and UK Gold's Dalek special is being run rather earlier in the year than might have otherwise been anticipated. The matter relates specifically to stories and situations penned by Terry Nation, and it is not restricted to Doctor Who. Neither is it a new or unexpected "problem". Negotiations are in progress to allow further transmissions. I remain hopeful that this matter can be resolved in the near future.

This led to stories like the skipping of Genesis of the Daleks in the August repeats, and whether Destiny of the Daleks was shown or not on 01:05 BST and 15523 on the 16th August.
