by Doc on Jan.12, 2006, under Television
The BBC is announcing with flourish that a deal has been struck with the SCI FI Channel to finally bring the new Doctor Who to the U.S. SFC will begin airing the first series in March in the Friday 9pm time slot (presumably the Winter half of Stargate Atlantis will be done by then). SFC also has an option on the upcoming second series. As part of the deal, the release of the DVD set will be delayed until July 4th, 2006 (explaining the earlier article). So, make sure all you U.S. Whovians tune in so we can continue to get the new series in a timely manner.

The Golden Groundhog Awards were established to recognize genuinely outstanding films that lacked the distribution and marketing support needed to become the blockbuster hits they deserved to be. It was announced today that the awards ceremony will be hosted by William Shatner, an actor who has enjoyed tremendous success on the silver screen, but who also knows from firsthand experience that great films can fall through the cracks.” Read More for the rest.
