Television Stations / Channels
When it was Czechoslovakia, the country had one television provider - Czechoslovak Television (founded in May 1953), which launched a SECAM colour service in 1973.
Following the formal division of the country at the end of 1992, this was replaced by Česká Televize (also known as Československa Televize), which had been launched in January 1992. The station currently operates seven channels of content.
Classic Doctor Who was shown briefly on CT1, and the New Series on CT2.
All foreign language programmes are dubbed.
DOCTOR WHO IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC
The only Classic series story to screen in the Czech Republic was the 1996 TV Movie, which had the title Doktor Kdo.
The New Series was shown just over two years later, under the title Pán Času - which translates as The Lord of Time / Time Lord.
Stories bought and broadcast
|TVM||The TV Movie||1|
The TV Movie was distributed by Universal / Fox rather than the BBC, which is why this was the only "Classic" serial sold.
The TV Movie - under the title Doktor Kdo - was broadcast on CT1 at 11.35pm on Saturday, 9 September 2000, and later repeated on Sunday, 25 February 2001 at 1.25am.
Two and a half years later, the New Series commenced on CT2, with episodes running on a daily basis, from 9 September 2013 until 30 October 2014 (only Series 1 to 7 were shown. Subsequent series were available on FILM SHOW). See our New Series page for more detail.
Several of the novels based on the New Series have been translated and released in the Czech Republic along with an edition of Doctor Who - The Visual Dictionary (Updated and Enhanced) (as Pan Času - Obrazový Průvodce Aktualizovaný a Rozšířený).
Also released were the three Classic series novelisations based on Douglas Adams scripts:
- Shada (March 2016)
- Město Smrti (City of Death) (October 2016)
- Pirátská Planeta (The Pirate Planet) (March 2018)
