      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - June 11, 2003
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 6, No 24

      Those of us in the US who stay up late or know how to set VCRs - the 1996
      Doctor Who TV Movie is airing here on the US Sci-Fi Channel late Sunday June
      15th at 1AM EDT East Feed / 1AM PDT West Feed.

      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.

      Weekdays 4:40PM CET "Tom Baker episodes with Polish subtitles" ??
      TELE 5 ran 26 Tom Baker episodes last year, and has been rerunning them on
      weekdays for the last few weeks. Their website is of little use in
      determining which stories are airing, and the episode order was largely
      random, so seeing part 4 of, say, The Brain Of Morbius, would give you no
      clue as to what the next story would be. The link to their schedule is now

      MPT airs The Two Doctors out of order as usual. Mark Of The Rani will air

      aired these two stories out of order, till BBC Worldwide Americas finally
      sent out a bulletin indicating the original UK order. The stories have no
      continuity issues, so there is no harm in this.
