Doctor Who Series 6 Delayed In North America

May 19, 2011


It has been learned that due to the American Memorial Day holiday, BBC America will be delaying the broadcast of Doctor Who. Series 6 will get a gap between episode 5, The Rebel Flesh, and episode 6, The Almost People because of the long weekend. The Rebel Flesh will go out as expected this weekend, May 21, but The Almost People will not be seen until June 4.

As partial compensation for the delay, BBC America will be showing a Doctor Who marathon on May 28 featuring the entire run of Series 5 and all of Series 6 to that point, including an encore presentation of The Rebel Flesh, but skipping over A Christmas Carol.

Unfortunately, SPACE has to follow BBC America’s lead and will also be preempting The Almost People on May 28, though instead of showing any Doctor Who at the usual 8:00 PM EDT time slot, SPACE is showing the Will Smith movie I, Robot.

This development is disappointing, especially since both BBC America and SPACE fought so hard to get day and date transmissions of Doctor Who with the UK. Nothing is yet known how or if this may impact the latter half of the series to be broadcast this fall.



Doctor Who Series 6 Premieres April 23 on SPACE

March 28, 2011

<![CDATA[SPACE, Canada’s home of Doctor Who, today announced they will be bringing Series 6 to Canadian screens day and date with the BBC and BBC America. Beginning at 8:00 PM EDT on Saturday, April 23, fans in the Great White North can learn the secrets of The Impossible Astronaut in part one of the series-opening two-parter – yes, an hour ahead of BBC America!

Being able to launch the series across parts of the world on the same day is indeed a wonderful thing, and we couldn’t be happier that SPACE is able to bring the new Doctor Who series to Canadians with minimal delay. Kudos to the team for giving Canadian Doctor Who fans what they wanted the most!
