The episode with William Shakespeare has just been filmed; it won't even 
air in the UK until next year. (Probably in the spring; that's when the 
past two seasons have aired.)

It will then come to the States via the SciFi channel some time after 
that. (Perhaps in the fall?) We're just now getting Season "2", the one 
that aired in the UK this past spring.

    >Who's Who, by the way?  Or Which?  A new one just morphed, apparently.

Yes, David Tennant has taken over from Christopher Eccleston. He's in 
the current season airing on SciFi, and will be in the next season as well.

Time travels in divers paces with divers persons (AYL 1403)... but none 
of us have caught up with series 3 yet.

"What's the relationship between the Who series in UK and in the USA, 
where it appears on sci/fi channel?  I watched a "current" episode 
expecting the Shakespeare plot line, but Who seems to be in a different 
universe over here."

The Shakespeare story will be broadcast by the BBC in 2007. The details 
of this and of all over Who-related stuff can be found at the suitably 
nerdish official website: www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho.

The US is just now starting the 2nd season (USA-speak) or series 
(UK-speak) of the new "Doctor Who". The Shakespeare episode is in the 
3rd, which hasn't even been seen in the UK, yet. As a rough guess, the 
UK will see it around April, and the US about a year from now.

Here in the USA we are watching the beginning of the 2nd season of 
"Doctor Who"--the meeting with Shakespeare occurs in the 3rd season.
