2021 Updates

September

  • 4 September: We've expanded the profile page for India to include some info about the Peter Cushing films.


August

  • 2 August: A couple of 'tweeks' to the recent France update to clarify some points regarding The Ark in Space...
  • 1 August: Major update to France; a set of French TV listings magazines has been found online; these give story titles for the 1989 run of Tom Baker episodes, and provide further listings for the TV Movie and the Peter Cushing films.
  • Also updated Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain to add additional details about the TV Movie and Peter Cushing movies.


July

  • 18 July: Turns out the series was shown on a regional basis in Yugoslavia; screenings in 1987 now added.
  • 14 July: We've created new profiles for Croatia and Slovenia (where the TV Movie was shown), and revised the profile on Yugoslavia to accommodate.


June

  • 6 June: NEW profile added for Syria, where a poster for the second Peter Cushing movie was found.
  • 6 June: Updates to Hungary (to add the Peter Cushing movies, and other general info), and Germany (to clarify what happened to the Pertwee screenings that were planned for 1991...)


May

  • 29 May: Updates to Norway, Sweden and Finland: new info regarding VHS releases added.
  • 27 May: The TV Movie was first shown on UK TV 25 years ago. We've been trying to catalogue all the known foreign editions that were released on VHS: so far more than 15 have been identified, and there are likely to be more...


April


March

  • 8 March: Spain and Portugal: coverage of the Peter Cushing movies has been expanded.


February

Or that's what we thought, but it turns out that bar a handful (due to extra-special circumstances) all those fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh Doctor series had their foreign premieres in West Germany! Although the German broadcaster RTL-Plus began screening McCoy episodes in late 1989, those episodes - and a whole lot more - had already been aired in parts of West Germany by the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS), which operated a closed-system television network that was available only at British military bases dotted around the country. The McCoy stories were also shown by the BFBS on the Falkland Islands.


  • 19 February 2021: This is our tenth anniversary. The site was officially launched on 19 February 2011 at the Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles. A big Thank you to all our readers and supporters - and an even bigger special Thank you to our contributors - see the very long list on the Main Page. We couldn't have done this without you.
  • This website turns TEN on 19 February. We were going to have a party with cake, balloons and clowns, but that's been scrapped due to COVID. Instead, each day over the next ten days we'll be Tweeting a "Fun Fact" highlighting something of interest that was discovered during research. On the tenth day, we'll be uploading a new profile - that of a previously unfamiliar broadcaster who was actually the first to... Well, that would be telling!
