[edit]

I am a "Whovian," an avid fan of Doctor Who. The new Friday night time is perfect, except when the show starts late due to a long Great Performances.

Colin Baker, the sixth Doctor, made four shows in his last season, collectively called "Trial of a Time Lord." I would like to know when Channel 10 plans to air these programs.

The rights for the current "Doctor Who" series expire on February 26th. At this time, Channel 10 does not plan to renew the "Doctor Who" contract In order to purchase those four new programs, the station would have had to purchase at least 48 other shows in the "Doctor Who" series. The cost was more than $18,000 and meant airing many shows for the fifth or sixth time. "Doctor Who" will return to Channel 10 after a "rest."
