      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - July 23, 2003
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 6, No 30

      Not much new this week, but for those of you who missed it:

      As of July 23, it is 26 days until "The Airzone Solution" and "Auton" have
      their US broadcast premieres on KTEH 54 San Jose/KCAH 25 Watsonville, CA
      http://www.kteh.org/ . If they pledge well, KTEH has the option to air the
      BBV videos and sell them to other public TV stations. BBV's website is
      http://www.bbvonline.co.uk/ .

      Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I, the Horatio Hornblower movies, 10th Doctor
      in The Curse Of Fatal Death) will be the BBC's official Ninth Doctor in a
      fully animated webcast on BBCi's website in November, the month of Doctor
      Who's 40th anniversary. Check out http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/ for
      more details.

      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.

      Additions and corrections are welcome at

      bfelliott3 on AOL IM, or thebfe on Yahoo Messenger. And now, the listings:


      BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/

      the 8th Doctor. The 3rd story produced for BBCi.

      And Coming In November ...
      "The Scream Of The Shalka" - Richard E. Grant as the 9th Doctor in a

      American Who http://www.americanwho.net/
      No new episode to enable listeners to have more time to hear the interview

      for people who don't read Polish, and I doubt they're much better for people
      who do speak Polish.
