      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - January 22, 2003
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 6, No 4

      As this week begins, BBC Radio 7 is running the second of 2 Jon Pertwee
      Doctor Who audio stories made for BBC Radio 4 in the early 1990s, and anyone
      with an internet connection and realplayer software can tune in. In Britain,
      Radio 7 is a digital radio station, available on digital radios and digital
      TVs. It is not immediately clear if Radio 7 will air more Doctor Who
      programming in the near future. Sci-fi themed programming airs 7 days a week
      at 6PM and Midnight British Time.

      The South African variant of the UK Sci-Fi Channel airs the 1996 Doctor Who
      TV Movie one more time this month on Sunday 26 January at 4PM. As of this
      writing, the UK and South African Sci-Fi Channels do not have any airings of
      the movie scheduled for February, nor does the US Sci-Fi Channel.

      UK Gold will be finishing its current run of Doctor Who stories in February
      (probably Saturday 8 February). I am not aware of any schedule information
      for UK Gold beyond that date. UK Gold has not said what they will do with
      the show, but a few months ago it was announced that the rights were up for
      renewal in early 2003, and that UK Gold was buying rights to the complete
      series (including Hartnell/Troughton). We'll see what happens.

      Iowa Public TV in Iowa is also completing their run of Doctor Who stories in
      February with Survival on February 1st. They went all the way from the 1st
      Doctor through the 7th. This time around, they're going to the start of the
      4th Doctor's era, and Robot will begin on February 8th.

      KTEH/KCAH Doctor Who fans in San Jose/Watsonville, CA - don't panic. A
      combination of pledge nights and burnoffs of airings of shows with expiring
      rights will keep Doctor Who off the air for February and possibly all of
      March. This weekend's airing of the last 2 episodes of Planet Of The Spiders
      will be the last airing before this brief hiatus. Doctor Who will return to
      KTEH/KCAH with the 4th Doctor era in either late March or April. A KTEH
      special with Peter Davison (5th Doctor) will air on February 16th.

      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.

      Doctor Who is going on hiatus until either late March or April 13, when the
      Tom Baker era will begin. Pledge specials and burnoffs of programs whose
      rights are expiring will fill the slot until then. A KTEH produced special
      with Peter Davison (5th Doctor) will air February 16.

      Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
