      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - December 18, 2002

      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.
