    Series Two in Canada or the USA first? Canada of course! :)

    Since we recorded the show it looks like this issue has been settled. Ztélé the french language Sci-Fi channel from Quebec, Canada will be the first to air Series Two. Ztélé will be airing "L'invasion de Noël" on August 22nd and "Une nouvelle Terre" on August 29th. "The Christmas Invasion" did of course already air in Canada on the CBC last year.

    K9 Adventures is not to be a cartoon, but live action show with CGI elements.

    With regards to the comment in the feedback on the Daleks and humor, we need to look back to the Second Doctor story Evil of the Daleks. The Doctor introduces the human factor into Daleks which he assigns names. The conflict between these Daleks and the loyal Daleks ends up causing a major Dalek civil war in that story. I can see the Cult of Skaro as the Daleks' way to take advantage of the Doctor's meddling with Dalek "genetics" to create a think tank for when the Daleks are stalemated as they were with the Movellan war. This is one way to get away from the crutch of Davros.


    Dizzy Dalek!

    Answering now looks like the premiere night on Sci-Fi will not be a 2 hour block but a 2.5 hour one. This would allow for an unedited "Christmas Invasion" and "New Earth" the same night.

    Thought you might find this interesting. I flew to Germany on KLM Saturday 8/19. On the main flight from Chicago to Amsterdam, after showing Over the Hedge they showed Tooth and Claw. Needless to say I was pretty excited. Granted, I had a portable DVD player and Talons of Weng Chiang and Green Death with me, but it was cool that they showed a new Doctor Who episode.
