  • 3 November 2011: We've made some minor corrections to Gibraltar, Singapore, Zambia and Uganda (and others) to fix layout errors or factual details brought to our attention by one of our readers. (Thanks Peter!)

  • Despite our valiant attempts to correct some of the long-standing but factually-incorrect fan-myths on their Doctor Who pages, Wikipedia mods refuse to accept BroaDWcast as being a "reliable source".

  • 10 October 2011: Detail about a potential run of repeats in 1991, a full run of repeats in 1995, some background notes regarding Jon Pertwee serials, and new pictures, ADDED to Germany.

  • 9 September 2011: Update to Singapore; we have now accessed all the papers that were previously missing, and confirm that Doctor Who is listed in each; which leaves no doubt that there was an extra episode in 1972; did Mission to the Unknown screen after all?
  • 8 September 2011: We have now ascertained that station WILL in Illinois aired the re-packaged Jon Pertwee stories in December 1984, two months ahead of New Jersey Network, who we previously had down as the debut station. The page for United States also amended accordingly.
