I changed the name of this thread so that you can use this one thread for all your podcast updates instead of creating a new thread for each update.

So just use this thread for your future updates. This way it will be easier for people to find info on your podcast if it is all contained within one thread.

Thanks.

No, I just buy them as they come out (if I have the money!) but I have several on my shelf that need to be re-watched and reviewed so I'm good.

No specific deadline. I need to sit down and watch the next DVD and it takes a bit because I go through it, all the extras, commentary, take notes etc.

Show prep is a lot of work! That's the first thing I've learned so far!

The feature guest is comedian Toby Hadock who preforms the play Moths Ate my Doctor Who Scarf. If that was not enough you also get bonous coverage of a an event I stubbled upon while shopping.

Russel,

The new series started in 2005 not 2006.

Sci-Fi and Space were never in a bidding war for Doctor Who. They operate in different markets. Sci-Fi is an American Channel and Space is Canadian.

Mike,

Yes you are right it did start in 2005, I guess I got my year mixed up in all the activity that was going on that day.

SPACE and Sci-Fi do compete in a way for broadcast rights on when an episode will air in the North American market so that is competition in a way just not direct because Sci-Fi is no carried on any Canadian networks. That was the only point I was trying to make with Teddy.

Cheers,

Russel

P.S. Thanks for downloading it

Russel, that still isn't competition for broadcast rights. Not in any way.

Besides which for the next little while (if not longer) new who in the US will be on BBC American, not Sci-Fi.

When I say competition I was just referring to how the program would be bounced back and forth between channels to see who would get to air it in North America first not strictly who has exclusive rights to airing it in North America.

I realoze BBC America has it now but you really can't compare that channel and SPACE and Sci-Fi since BBC America has a different format and built in audience.
