is to air the Jon Pertwee stories, at 2 episodes a week. If the show
performs well enough, they may pick up the Tom Baker episodes in 2002.
Spearhead From Space and Doctor Who and the Silurians aired as pledge
specials in December 2000, while the Doctor Who Night (including Remembrance
Of The Daleks) aired in March 2001.
With the addition of KERA, there will be 16 public broadcasters in the US
airing Doctor Who each week. Doctor Who has also been airing in the US on
BBC America, which is discontinuing the show in July.
