by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 5, No 51
Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who TV & radio broadcasts worldwide.
Only real news to note - KAWE/KAWB 9,22 Bemidji/Brainerd, MN is taking
Doctor Who off its schedule after next weekend's episode. It looks like they
have dropped the series.
Next week's edition will come out on Thursday, December 26.
While I try to keep the column up to date, 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.
