    daedroug, As far as I know, there was a new Doctor Who on Sci Fi last night and there are a couple of Doctor Who repeats that play on BBC America before the Robin Hood episodes tonight.

    daedroug, No problem. There are so many channels anymore and shows that run on multiple channels that it’s sometimes hard to keep up. So, comments with suggestions for shows worth watching that I may not have mentioned are always welcome.
