      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - March 5, 2003
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 6, No 10

      SOUTH AFRICA - The South African Sci-Fi Channel is rerunning the 1996 Doctor
      Who movie two more times this week. There are no more airings for the movie
      scheduled for March or April on this channel, so see it now or never. The UK
      Sci-Fi Channel will be airing both the 1996 Movie and the special
      "Dalekmania" on Easter - 20 April.

      CANADA - Early warning for readers with BBC Kids. From Monday 10 March
      through Friday 14 March, the Midnight Eastern Time Doctor Who broadcasts
      will be pre-empted and replaced by American Kids movies from the 1990s. Free
      Willy, Free Willy 2, Dennis The Menace, etc. The 4AM airings of Doctor Who
      continue that week. Doctor Who returns to Midnight weeknight airings on
      Monday 17 March.

      Pledge season continues in the US on most PBS stations, resulting in lots of
      pre-emptions for Doctor Who in favor of big pledge events. Most other
      programming on those stations are being pre-empted as well.

      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.
