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.

Martin is still online at the American Who website.

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

Late Sat Mid EDT "The Two Doctors" movie
MPT airs The Two Doctors out of order as usual. Mark Of The Rani will air
next week. Virtually every US station airing the series from 1985 to 1999
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.
