      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - July 3, 2002
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 5, No 27

      Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who on Television.

      CANADA - Fans of Doctor Who on BBC Kids http://www.bbckids.ca/ , take note.
      Beginning Saturday, 6 July, the weekend omnibus Doctor Who broadcast times
      will change slightly. Stories will still air at 3:30PM Saturdays and
      Sundays, but the repeats will move to 10:30PM instead of 10PM. Weekday
      airing times remain unaffected.

      South America - Still need help from someone who has Uniseries
      http://www.uniseries.com.ar down there. What Doctor Who episodes are they
      airing? And starting 7 July, Doctor Who will also air Sunday mornings at
      9:30AM, bringing it to 3 weekly broadcasts.

      USA - A couple of weeks ago, Dish Network began giving some of its receivers
      the ability to display local TV channels on their local channel numbers.
      Most Dish Network subscribers are still getting their local channels in the
      8000 block. We are listing both channel numbers now, like we do for DirecTV.

      AUSTRALIA - Jason Fraser, administrator of the Varos Doctor Who website in
      Australia, has redesigned it a bit. The new website is at
      http://www.varos.net/drwho . His site now has a complete history of UKTV's
      Doctor Who broadcasts from 1996 to the present. Coming soon is a complete
      broadcast history of Doctor Who on Australian Television from the 1960s on.
      There is still a mirror of my column on the site.

      Additions and corrections are welcome at
      thisweekindoctorwho-owner@yahoogroups.com , bfelliott@... ,
      bfelliott3 on AOL IM, or thebfe on Yahoo Messenger. And now, the listings:

      Wed Noon CET "Battlefield" pt 3 of 4
      Season 26 begins with the first real U*N*I*T story in a long time. You could
      almost call this one "The Two Brigadiers". To help Brigadier Bambera cope
      with the 7th Doctor and soldiers from another dimension, ex-Brigadier
      Lethbridge-Stewart arrives to give advice. Jean Marsh ('Upstairs,
      Downstairs', 'The House Of Eliot', Sara Kingdom from The Daleks' Masterplan)

      Wed-Thu "The Ribos Operation" pts 3 - 4 of 4
      Jethryk, Jethryk, who's got the Jethryk? The con men want it for the cash.
      The superstitious government wants it for their Crown Jewels. The insane
      Graff Vynda-K wants it to finance his army. And the 4th Doctor, Romana, and
      K9 need it, as it happens to be the first segment of the Key To Time.
      Fri "The Pirate Planet" pt 1 of 4
      Romana takes a scandalous course of action that leaves the Doctor stunned in
      horror - she lands the TARDIS without his help.
      Sat "The Talons Of Weng-Chiang" all 6 pts
      Note the new later start time for the evening weekend airings. Magic,
      Chinatown, murder, a clever coroner, and a cowardly stage manager lead to an
      exciting outing for the 4th Doctor and Leela in 19th Century London. The
      Doctor exchanges his regular outfit for a very Sherlock Holmes-like cape of
      essentially the same colors, just for this story.
      Sun "Horror Of Fang Rock" all 4 pts
      Lost in the fog, the TARDIS brings the 4th Doctor and Leela to a lighthouse
      where an alien bodysnatching invasion is underway. One by one the humans
      die, and only the Doctor can figure out why.
      Mon-Tue "The Pirate Planet" pts 2 - 3 of 4
      Romana and the 4th Doctor can't find the 2nd segment of the Key To Time. It
      appears it was on the planet Calufrax. But another planet has destroyed
      Calufrax and stolen its place in the galaxy.

      In the far future, at the far end of the universe, the 5th Doctor and
      company observe the last colony of humanity. They are forbidden from getting
      involved in this time period. But what can you do when the TARDIS is forced
      to crash land?

      Before the 4th Doctor can get back to Nerva, a Time Lord wants him to carry
      out a mission to change the history of the Daleks.

      The 5th Doctor and company have to deal with the second attempt by the
      Cybermen to destroy Earth in the same day. The price of the Cybermen's
      persistence could be the dissolution of the current TARDIS crew. Nyssa -
      Sarah Sutton. Adric - Matthew Waterhouse. Tegan - Janet Fielding.

      The 6th Doctor, suffering from partial memory loss, is yanked out of time
      and space by a Time Lord kangaroo court. Accused of interfering in the
      affairs of other worlds, the Doctor winds up watching his past adventures
      shown on screen for the Court to see. First, the Doctor's activities on the
      planet Ravalox, a world Peri finds disturbingly familiar.

      Turlough's destiny is revealed. Kamelion makes a decision on his future. The
      Master plots to regain his size. And the planet prepares to disintegrate
      into a molten lava mess.
      Sat 10PM MDT "The Caves Of Androzani" all 4 pts
      Earlier start time than normal - hooray. The 5th Doctor and Peri arrive on
      *another* hot planet, where they run afoul of the military, gun runners, and
      a lunatic in a mask. A poisonous substance in the caves could render that
      all academic, however - if the Doctor and Peri are infected, they will die.
      Pre-empted by KBDI's seemingly monthly pledge drives next week. See you July

      Not a typo - KBTC has seriously scheduled this story again. They also have
      The Five Doctors coming up again. In 1215, the 5th Doctor, Tegan, and
      Turlough find King John causing trouble for a nobleman and his castle when
      John should be off in London signing the Magna Carta. The red-headed,
      red-bearded man may hold the answers.

      The 3rd Doctor and Jo finally manage to convince some of the Humans and
      Draconians that the Master is responsible for the attacks between the
      worlds. But enough anger has been stirred up that it may be too late - both
      worlds prepare for war.

      As of this writing, I can not find any listings that will say which episodes
      are airing, or in what language. I'm serious, guys. We need to hear from
      people in Argentina or neighboring countries with this channel.

      Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
