No Doctor Who For Now
According to IGN News, the new Doctor Who series may have trouble materializing in the US. The new episodes starring Christopher Eccleston will air in the UK and Canada this April, but it seems that NBC Universal and its SciFi Channel subsidiary were offered the new show and have turned it down for now. According to the report, some NBC executives "didn't think it would fit into the network's schedule." Gee. I think it would have fit in perfectly in the Friday night slot currently occupied by Befuddlement Galactica, which has actually been renewed for another season. Note to self: Make plans to smuggle prescription drugs and videotapes in from Canada.
