Doctor Who has not been shown on terrestrial television in HUNGARY, but signals from Yugoslavia may have been received when it was seen there in 1986.

Doctor Who was seen on BBC World Service Television in 1992, 1993 and 1994, and on BBC Prime from 1995.

The New Series was shown from 2006, with the title "Ki Vagy, Doki?" ("Who Are You, Doctor?").

Classic Doctor Who was also available in other forms:

The 1996 TV Movie was released on rental VHS by MCA/Universal/CIC Video and UIP / Dunafilm in 1997: the cover tagline reads MEGÉRI A VILÁG A XXI SZÁZADOT? (Will the World Survive into the 21st Century?).

The dubbed soundtrack was recorded at Videovox Studio Ltd; both Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann were voiced by Péter Haás Vander.


In January 1993, Android published a translated edition of Marc Platt's seventh Doctor New Adventures novel Cat's Cradle: Time's Crucible under the title Új Doctor Who Kalandok: Az Idö Fogságában, which translates as New Doctor Who Adventures: Captured by Time / Captured in Time.

The back cover says episodes were currently screening on satellite (presumably those on BBC World Service Television Europe), but more curiously, the spine of the book has the number 1 on it, and the back blurb says that further books would be published on a two-monthly basis "next year". It's likely this refers simply to the arrival of the "Missing Adventures" series of books, which first appeared in the UK from July 1994 -- but the "1" does suggest that Android intended to - but ultimately didn't - publish further titles.

(The cover artwork painted by Tim White was not a new piece, and had previously appeared on a 1978 printing of Frank Herbert's 1968 novel "The Santaroga Barrier"!)

Translated editions of various New Series and Torchwood books were also published by Gabo.
