Doctor Who: The Doctor's WifeBBC One is to change its Saturday line up from 14th May, switching Doctor Who and So You Think You Can Dance Live meaning episode four of Doctor Who, The Doctor's Wife, is now scheduled for broadcast at 6.30pm.

The change, which will please many fans, is seen as a vote of confidence in the show, which has been the only BBC One programme achieving strong ratings on Saturday evenings.

Doctor Who will follow the live dance show which also sees its results programme being moved to Sunday for this week. The previous Doctor Who lead in, Don't Scare the Hare, which has been getting poor ratings and appalling AI figures, has been moved to before the early evening news. The Eurovision Song Contest Final is at 8pm.

Doctor Who will now face New Animals Do the Funniest Things and Sing if You Can on ITV1. BBC Two will be showing an evening of programmes dedicated to the late comedy writer John Sullivan.
