The Doctor Who Information Network (www.dwin.org) is reporting that SPACE, Canada’s sci-fi network, will be airing Planet of the Dead on Saturday, June 20, at 9:30 PM EST. As well, Series 5, which will debut in the UK in April 2010, will also be shown on SPACE sometime in the new year. (Even though the next three gap year specials were not mentioned, it is probably safe to assume that these will air on SPACE, as well).
Your intrepid hosts at Radio Free Skaro briefly talked about the possibility of this happening in Episode #133. However, it’s not like it’s a massive surprise, given that SPACE has already aired “The Next Doctor”, and also given that the CBC, which aired the first four series in increasingly erratic and sporadic fashion, is facing a large amount of financial cutbacks these days.
