TWIDW Update: UK Gold, KTEH San Jose, KCKA Centralia
- Some late updates to the November 12 This Week In Doctor Who column.
1) UK Gold http://www.ukgold.tv has (since Tuesday) removed
references to the 5PM Saturday Jon Pertwee episodes originally
scheduled for November 15 and 29, replacing them with alternate
programming. This follows the late change on November 8 where
Inferno was finished early Saturday morning. It would appear that
the Saturday Pertwee run has been cancelled, or at a minimum
suspended. In another late change, this Saturday's start time
of "The Awakening" (5th Doctor story) has moved from 7:20AM to 8AM.
All other Doctor Who broadcasts (including future weekend airings)
remain as they were. No, no accurate info on what times various
stories will start during the Doctor Who @ 40 weekend. For UK Gold +
1, all Doctor Who stories airing (or not airing) will air (or not
air) one hour later than the UK Gold times.
2) KTEH/KCAH 54, 25 San Jose/Watsonville, CA http://www.kteh.org
actually *is* airing a Doctor Who related feature this week. KTEH's
interview with Tom Baker (which made a few headlines several years
back when it was briefly lost) will air Late Saturday at 1:35AM PST.
Set your VCR/DVD recorder/DVR.
3) KCKA-DT 19 Centralia, WA http://www.kbtc.org is now on the air,
bringing the digital version of KBTC Tacoma to more viewers. For
most people with digital tuners KCKA-DT 19-1 will remap to 15-1, to
correspond with the location of the analog channel.
