THE NEW SERIES (2005 to ????)
BroaDWcast documents the foreign transmissions of the original series (the first eight Doctors), from 1964 to the turn of the millennium. The relaunch of the series in March 2005 brought a whole slew of new sales to old and new foreign broadcasters, many of whom pre-purchased the series for 2005 transmission.
Many others picked up the series in 2006 and later years. The task of cataloguing all of these screenings is too daunting to even consider at this stage, however much of the groundwork and research has been done by Benjamin F Elliott, and posted to his THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO online column.
We have however created a 'sortable' table recording the known countries that have aired the new series, with the debut airdates given where known.
For a more detailed analysis of these transmissions, please refer to the THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO MARCH 2005 INDEX.
