It could be noted that I am quite a fan of the old BBC tv show Doctor Who.
It could also be noted that I have been keeping track of the episodes that have been televised as well as the upcoming episodes that are currently doing reruns on everyone’s ABC.

It turns out that due to disputes between the beeb and the estate of Terry Nation some episodes featuring the Dalek episodes will not be shown.

Many Australian viewers are still wondering why the ABC did not screen Day of the Daleks, or Patrick Troughton’s ‘The War Games’ in its current run.

This article on the DWCA delves into the reason

You may be wondering why the early Dalek serials (The Daleks, The Dalek Invasion of Earth, and The Chase) were screened. This may be because the joint ownership deal was not negotiated by Terry Nation until after “Evil of the Daleks’, the early Patrick Troughton adventure. But more than likely it is the fact that that all the early episodes were penned by Terry Nation.

And ..

It has come to our knowledge that the upcoming ‘Frontier In Space’ and ‘Planet of the Daleks’ will not be screened in Australia.

So to the estate of Terry Nation – FUCK YOU!
