we posted news that the February 14 release of Doctor Who
had been pulled from the schedule, and today we know why; Sci-Fi Channel has picked up the series and will begin airing it later this year. BBC has moved the release date to July 4, 2006
to gain more publicity for the box set, and to allow Sci-Fi to air the series before they release it on DVD.
the set for sale in Canada, shipping on Feb 14
. The series has already been shown in Canada, so BBC may release it in the north on the previously scheduled date. You may order the set from Amazon.ca for $87.49 CAN
(approx $75 US). You can read more information about the Sci-Fi deal on the BBC website
Thanks to Justin and Rob Mican for sending us the news.
