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

      I'm going to skip the podcast section again due to my computer issues. I
      hope to return it next week.

      The public TV stations known to have bought Series 30:

      Idaho Public TV - currently in first run
      WILL 12 Urbana, IL - currently in first run
      Milwaukee Public TV - currently in first run
      WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI - currently in first run
      KERA 13 Dallas, TX - currently in first run
      Iowa Public TV - begins 13 March - pledge special 9PM CDT
      KCPT 19 Kansas City, MO - 2 episodes on March 6 as pledge, not sure if this
      is a test or if they bought the full series

      The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 29
      (all of the Series 30 stations fall in this category except KCPT):

      WXXI 21 Rochester, NY
      WTTW 11 Chicago, IL
      WTVP 47 Peoria, IL
      Idaho Public TV
      Wisconsin Public TV
      KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT
      OETA Oklahoma
      KLRU 18 Austin, TX
      Alaska Public TV
      WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY
      West Virginia Public Broadcasting

      I am confident that there are more stations with rights to Series 29 and 30
      than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me or scheduled the
      show.

      Series 28 is currently available to public TV stations in an American Public
      TV package until March 31, 2010. For the Series 27 and 28 packages, stations
      bought the rights to cycle through the episodes 4 times. They are not
      required to do so. While no stations have been airing Series 27 regularly
      since the American Public TV package expired, WGBY 57 in Springfield, MA is
      airing one episode from that run as a pledge special on March 13, and if
      they choose to go with Doctor Who regularly they will start with Series 27,
      purchased direct from BBC Worldwide Americas.

      2 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor Who run
      (1963-1989), but not New Who. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing Colin Baker
      episodes. WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes. These are also
      purchased from BBC Worldwide Americas.

      Some stations are using Doctor Who for pledge purposes in March. This list
      may grow:
      6 March 9:30PM CST - KCPT 19 Kansas City, MO - Partners In Crime and The
      Fires Of Pompeii
      13 March 9:15PM EST - WGBY 57 Springfield, MA - The End Of The World (battle
      with a Doc Martin episode, the winner gets on the schedule)
      13 March 9PM CST - Iowa Public TV - Voyage Of The Damned
      13 March 9:30PM CST - Milwaukee Public TV - Planet Of The Ood (repeats at
      10:50PM)
      20 March 10:10PM CST - WILL 12 Urbana, IL - Voyage Of The Damned

      And now, the listings:
