      This Week In Doctor Who PBS
      February 20, 2010
      by Benjamin F Elliott

      I'm going to skip the podcast section this time due to my not being able to
      update it and its size. I hope to return it next week, if certain computer
      problems can be solved.

      KUHT 8 Houston, TX slipped Doctor Who back on the schedule without my
      hearing about it. Not sure how long Who has been back in Houston, but they
      are in the middle of premiering the 2008 episodes (10th Doctor and Donna,
      aka Series 30 by current production team terminology, aka Series 4 when the
      episodes were being made).

      KVCR 24 San Bernadino, CA is burning off their final cycle of Series 28
      (10th Doctor and Rose) episodes this weekend (late Friday through
      late Sunday).

      KCPT 19 Kansas City, MO has sporadically aired Series 28 (the 2006 episodes)
      for the past 2 years, without buying Series 29 (the 2007 episodes). Now the
      first 2 episodes of Series 30 (the 2008 episodes) will air as a pledge
      special from 9:30PM till Midnight on Saturday 6 March. I don't know if this
      means they bought the full set of episodes or if they are waiting to see how
      the pledge night turns out. But it'll be a good night to see the uncut
      versions of Partners In Crime and The Fires Of Pompeii, while letting KCPT
      know that you want more.

      We are hearing reports that WGBY 57 in Springfield, MA is preparing a pledge
      night (March 13th) where Doctor Who and Doc Martin will battle it out. The
      show that gets more pledge support from the viewers will get a regular time
      slot on the station.

      March 13th will also be the pledge night for:
      1) Milwaukee Public TV 10 Milwaukee, WI - Planet Of The Ood, 9:30PM Central
      2) Iowa Public TV (statewide) - Voyage Of The Damned, 9PM Central

      And now, the listings:
