What Doctor? Doctor Who?

Hey all you mad sci-fi super fans. You may be interested to know that the Sci Fi Channel* has just inked a deal with the Beeb to broadcast the first season (first series to you Brits) of the new Doctor Who** in the US. Doctor Who is certainly a kid/family show and makes no effort to be hard science fiction, but if you accept that, you'll find the series is quite well done and quite entertaining. I can't help but think that, if this season brings in the ratings, Sci Fi will pick up the second season as well. So, if you are a Nielson family, please tune in Fridays at 9:00 PM beginning in March.

* Sci Fi is the home of the very enjoyable reimagining of Battlestar Galactica, a couple of crappy-to-medium Stargate series, and a whole boatload of idiotic made-for-TV monster movies.
