This Week In Doctor Who - February 19/21, 2003
- THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - February 19/21, 2003
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 6, No 8
Welcome to a somewhat delayed edition of This Week In Doctor Who. It
figures. If ever you are running behind schedule and don't back up your
data, your computer's power strip will choose that moment to fail for the
first time to back up the computer power through a split second power loss,
and the data will disappear into the ether, like the Black Guardian when you
try to get a straight answer to why he wears a bird on his head.
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.

BBC Radio 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/
92-95FM (UK), 198LW (UK and Europe), Live link from website worldwide
Sat 10:30AM GMT "My Life As A Dalek" 30 minutes
(11:30AM CET, 5:30AM EST, 2:30AM PST, 9:30PM AEDT - adjust for local time)
Radio 4 takes an affectionate look back at the Daleks, the longest lasting,
best known villains from Doctor Who. Interviews with the men and women who
brought the galaxy's most memorable pepperpots to life. No rerun scheduled
as of this writing. Radio 4 archives many of its radio programs for a week
after broadcast, and it is likely that this show will be archived, but that
has not been confirmed. Sneak preview interview with John Scott
'Everydalek' Martin at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2780177.stm .
Fri 7PM EST "Interstellar Transmissions"
WWNN AM1470 Pompano Beach/Boca Raton, FL (Miami/West Palm Beach, FL)
Joey Reynolds' weekly radio show for sci-fi news and interviews, which can
be heard online worldwide. Doctor Who news usually discussed during the
Business Talk Radio Network http://www.businesstalkradio.net/
Late Sun/Early Mon 2-6AM EST (11PM-3AM PST) "Sci-Fi Overdrive"
Live audio link at Business Talk website - requires Windows Media Player.
Joey Donovan (aka Joey Reynolds) hosts a national talk show based on
Interstellar Transmissions, syndicated by the Business Talk Radio network.
No guest list yet. Official description - "Our innagural show. Just opening
the house and waiting for the cable guy." Joey was looking for possible
guests at the Gallifrey convention, so I would think there's a good chance
of Who guests this week, maybe. I'll put a current list of stations
scheduled to air the show at the end of this week's column. Due to the
number of stations, I will not be listing the stations every week, but hope
to have a link to a station list.
