      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - August 27, 2003
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 6, No 35

      Brief-ish column today before the wackiness of an autumn with Doctor
      Who's 40th anniversary and the 9th Doctor.

      KTEH 54 San Jose, CA has aired The Airzone Solution and Auton, the 2
      advertised BBV stories. They were noted here in the column for over a
      month, so if you missed them, you're out of luck.

      UNLESS, you can get to Iowa. Iowa Public TV http://www.iptv.org/ will
      air Airzone & Auton to help celebrate Doctor Who's 40th Anniversary.
      The special prime-time broadcast of the two stories is Saturday
      September 27 at 9PM.

      KERA 13 Dallas, TX - what to do with you? First you list Resurrection
      Of The Daleks to air and pull it at the last minute after the column
      goes out. Then you schedule a pledge night for The Caves Of Androzani
      and pull it at the last moment too. The website was not updated as of
      this writing, but TVGuide and Zap2it now list Caves in the regular
      timeslot this week with no room for a pledge drive.

      Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I, 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

      Upcoming airings of the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie:
      Wednesday 10 September 8 to 9:35PM UK Sci-Fi Channel
      Sunday 14 September 2 to 3:35PM UK Sci-Fi Channel
      Monday 15 September 11AM to 12:35PM UK Sci-Fi Channel

      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
