US Invasion

The Sci-Fi Channel in the USA has bought Doctor Who! Hurrah! From the Press Release:

Welcoming the deal, Sci FI Channel's Thomas P Vitale said Doctor Who was a "true sci-fi classic".

The award-winning Eccleston series will premiere on the Sci Fi Channel in March.

Mr Vitale said: "With its rich history of imaginative storytelling, Doctor Who is a true sci-fi classic. We're excited to add the show to our line up."
So the Americans will finally get to see it. That's nice. But wait, isn't this the same Sci-Fi Channel who passed on buying the series back in March last year stating:

The Sci-Fi Channel are NOT in negotiations for the new series with their sources saying "Sci Fi Channel has already had a chance at the new series and passed after viewing some of the completed episodes. Some of the executives at the network found the series somewhat lacking and didn't think it would fit into the network's schedule." (Dated March 3rd, 2005)
