      Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who on TV.

      Thanks to those who gave their kind reactions to the April Fools special
      edition of this column on Monday. Eerily enough, some of those fake web
      links work. If you didn't see it, and are curious, you can find it online at
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho/message/85 .

      Also, effective late last weekend, This Week In Doctor Who once again began
      to appear on the Outpost Gallifrey website http://www.gallifreyone.com/ .
      The week I began writing the column, Siobahn Morgan asked if it could be put
      on her Doctor Who Home Page
      http://www.nitro9.earth.uni.edu/doctor/homepage.html and Shaun Lyon asked
      for Outpost Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com/ . I am delighted to have
      This Week back on the Outpost Gallifrey site after just under a year's
      absence. Shaun has some new computer programming technique that I don't
      understand which now makes it possible to update the column fast, so he has
      the time to include it again.

      This Week In Doctor Who is still on Siobahn's stie, and also on the Jason
      Fraser's Varos Doctor Who page http://www.varos.com/drwho/uktv/ , the best
      Australian fan site out there, along with
      http://www.wolvesoffenric.freeserve.co.uk/ , run by Roger Clark. And the
      Yahoo Group. And on rec.arts.drwho . So you no longer have any excuses to
      claim you can't find it.

      Additions and corrections are welcome at
      thisweekindoctorwho-owner@yahoogroups.com , bfelliott@... ,
      bfelliott 3 on AIM, or thebfe on Yahoo Messenger. And now, the listings:

      Episode 4C goes online 12 April. Use some version of Realplayer to watch or
      listen. Starring Sylvester McCoy as the 7th Doctor.

      WSBR AM740 West Palm Beach, FL http://www.wsbrmoneytalkradio.com/
      Fri 11PM EST "Interstellar Transmissions" http://www.scifiradioguy.com/
      The link from Interstellar Transmissions' site to the web stream uses
      Windows Media Player. I don't know if the link from WSBR's web site uses
      Media Player or Real Player.
      This week's guest - TJ Lubinsky (Whosaver).
      Readers of this column will remember TJ for spearheading Doctor Who's
      relaunch on WQED/WQEX Pittsburgh, his sadly unsuccessful attempts at
      launching a national feed of Doctor Who for PBS stations in 1998, the
      success of the National Doctor Who Night pledge special in 2000, and his
      restoration work on the Da Silva extras for the Tom Baker DVDs. A little
      before this column's time, he also was responsible for Planet Of The Daleks
      episode 3 and Invasion Of The Dinosaurs episode 1 finally becoming available
      for broadcast in the US, along with restored versions of The War Machines,
      Doctor Who and the Silurians, Terror Of The Autons, and The Daemons, plus
      the extended video versions of The Five Doctors and The Curse Of Fenric. The
      general public will remember TJ for his incredibly successful Doo Wop
      specials on PBS, and the recent syndication of Ed Sullivan and Red Skelton
      to PBS stations. This being a sci-fi show, talk will probably focus on TJ's
      work in the Doctor Who area.

      TV:

      UK:

      Channel 4 http://www.channel4.co.uk/
      Tue 1:45-3:15PM BST "Dr. Who And The Daleks" 1965 theatrical movie
      Peter Cushing stars as Dr. Who in a colour movie remake of the original
      Dalek story during this special matinee broadcast. The Welsh version of
      Channel 4 - S4C - frequently reruns much of Channel 4's programming within a
      week of the Channel 4 screening, so people with S4C should keep an eye out
      for news about this film rerunning.
