As mentioned elsewhere, the date of the final ODI has apparently been moved forward a day to the 25th October. Perfectly understandable, since you wouldn't expect the BCCI to know that the original date clashed with India's biggest religious festival, would you?

4 October - England arrive in Hyderabad
8 October - 50-over warm-up match, Hyderabad (Gymkhana)
11 October - 50-over warm-up match, Hyderabad (Gymkhana)
14 October - 1st ODI v India (D/N), Hyderabad (RGI Stadium, Uppal)
17 October - 2nd ODI v India (D/N), Delhi (Ferozeshah Kotla)
20 October - 3rd ODI v India (D/N), Mohali (PCA Stadium)
23 October - 4th ODI v India (D/N), Mumbai (Wankhede Stadium)
25 October - 5th ODI v India (D/N), Kolkata (Eden Gardens)
29 October - T20 v India (D/N), Kolkata (Eden Gardens)

Thanks to Sunny for alerting us to this, since it slipped under a lot of peoples' radars.

In case you wanted official confirmation of the change, this is from the ECB website:

They played a champions league match on the night of Diwali in Bangalore a couple of years ago, we had a bomb scare, fireworks and all sorts, not quite as good as the real bomb at the IPL the year after or the mini riot getting into England v India at the world cup but fun all the same.

they delayed the start for an hour to make sure everything was ok, and the scare the year before they kept the teams at their hotels for an hour. Indian logic in full effect

You missed my point. I was referring to your terminology "not quite as good" for a BOMB.

Fair enough Jim, but on our visits, particularly Mumbai and Colombo straight after the terrorist attacks, no-one seemed to think there was anything "quite as good" as a bomb.
Anyway, moving on .....
