      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - November 26, 2003
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 6, No 48

      The 40th anniversary celebrations are winding down. The marathons
      are essentially over. The press tributes are gone. Now we are in
      year 41 - back to normal, even as we know that a new Doctor Who
      series is in the pipeline for 2005. To all those going to Chicago
      TARDIS this weekend - have a great time. And for those of us in the
      US, don't forget this week's episode of The Scream Of The Shalka
      just because US Thanksgiving is Thursday. It'll still be around in a
      couple of days, so you can catch up before episode 4 arrives.

      Corrections and updates are always welcome at thisweekindoctorwho-
