Thank you gbamber. I guess that makes sense.

Dr.Dave 2018-10-01 07:38 PM

The schedule at www.space.ca is now updated for Sunday, so it's the one to go by. Double-check your PVR if you plan to record anything that day. As I expected. Space has a different list of episodes for the Doctor Who marathon than Zap2it, some of which are more than a hour long. The season premiere will be simulcast with the BBC for this one time only at 1:45 p.m. ET, followed by Star Trek: Short Treks "Runaway" at 4:10 p.m. and more old episodes of Doctor Who.

The season premiere of Doctor Who will be rebroadcast at its regular time of 8 p.m. for 90 minutes. This will cause The Last Ship to be delayed until 9:30 p.m., which will be followed by more old episodes of Doctor Who.

What is "Short Treks"?

Dr.Dave 2018-10-02 09:39 AM

I noticed that the classic Zap2it doesn't have the updated Space Sunday schedule, but the new one does.

Star Trek: Short Treks “Runaway” will premiere on Space on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 9 PM ET for 20 minutes, with several repeats. Star Trek: Short Treks are four standalone stories building toward the early 2019 return of Star Trek: Discovery. Each short will run approximately 10-15 minutes, plus commercials. See Star Trek: Discovery discussion.

EDIT: Bell Media just issued a press release that explains Star Trek: Short Treks in more detail. The remaining shorts will premiere at 9 PM ET on Thursdays, Nov. 8, Dec. 6 and Jan. 3.

EDIT2: Viewers can catch STAR TREK: SHORT TREKS on demand via set-top-box, and on Space.ca, and Space GO following the premiere of each installment.

Bayguy 2018-10-02 01:26 PM

Thank you Dr. Dave, I don't watch Discovery so won't bother watching SHort Treks.
