THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - September 4/5, 2002
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 5, No 36
Column's a tad late and short this week. Couldn't be helped. Hopefully
things will be back on schedule next week (the 11th).
Top story of the week - BBC Prime http://www.bbcprime.com/
has taken Doctor
Who off its schedule. BBC Prime is a cable/satellite channel bringing BBC
Programming to the continents of Europe, Africa, and parts of Asia. They
have aired Doctor Who since 1995, and have shown just about all the stories
from Pertwee to McCoy (the TV Movie with McGann aired a couple of years
ago). They finished the McCoy run about 2 weeks ago, and used a 4 part
version of The Five Doctors to finish August. BBC Prime has made their
semi-annual reshuffling of their program schedule, and Doctor Who appears to
have been left out of the shuffle.
UK - UK Gold is now airing extra Doctor Who broadcasts late Friday and
Saturday nights, beginning 6 September. The Friday night story is the same
one that they will air on Saturday morning, and the Saturday night story is
the same one that they will air Sunday morning. So, if you don't want to
wake up early to watch Doctor Who, all you have to do is stay up very late.
Canada - BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca/
is airing new (to them) Doctor Who
episodes again. See the listings for specific episodes and times.
USA - NHPTV New Hampshire http://www.nhptv.org/
is now airing Doctor Who at
11:30PM on Thursdays instead of Midnight.
While I try to keep the column up to day, I do sometimes miss late changes
to schedules. If you see TWIDW's information getting out of synch with what
your local station is actually airing, let me know ASAP.

Another adventure for the errant Time Lord. But we don't know which

there has contacted me.
Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
