      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - October 15, 2003
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 6, No 42

      Not much new on the TV front. As of this writing, we don't know yet
      when The Scream Of The Shalka will premiere on the BBCi website.
      November TV listings for most stations airing Doctor Who are not up
      yet, so we don't know yet how many places will be celebrating Doctor
      Who on TV for the anniversary. The fun should begin within the next
      week, as official November schedules start to come out.
