      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - June 22, 2001
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 4, No 25

      BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com/ has pulled Doctor Who slightly
      earlier than the July date mentioned on their FAQ. It looks like the final
      broadcast was at 5AM Eastern Time (2AM Pacific) today, June 22nd - the final
      portion of The Seeds Of Doom. For many Americans with digital Cable or
      Satellite TV, this means the end of Doctor Who on their TVs. At least until
      the Sci-Fi Channel airs the 1996 Paul McGann movie on July 15th.

      Speaking of that, the Sci-Fi Channel's early listings for August seem to
      indicate that the movie will not get a rerun for at least several weeks
      after it airs. So, fans will want to make sure they see the movie the first
      time, or have whoever tapes it get it right the first time. Sci-Fi has 2
      broadcast feeds, so you will need to know which feed your cable/satellite
      system uses before July 15thcomes along. Those of us in the Eastern and
      Central Time Zones are only offered the East Coast Feed, while viewers in
      the Mountain Time Zone and westward will need to pay more attention. Since
      the movie is airing at 9PM Eastern Time, here's the conversion for the time
      zones. Save this if you might forget:

      East Coast Feed:
      Eastern Daylight Time - 9 to 11PM
      Central Daylight Time - 8 to 10PM
      Mountain Daylight Time - 7 to 9PM
      Pacific Daylight Time - 6 to 8PM
      Alaska Time - 5 to 7PM
      Hawaii Time - 3 to 5PM

      West Coast Feed:
      Mountain Daylight Time - 10PM to Midnight
      Pacific Daylight Time - 9 to 11PM
      Alaska Time - 8 to 10PM
      Hawaii Time - 6 to 8PM

      My apologies to Australian readers. I missed the notice on Jason Fraser's
      site http://www.varos.com/drwho/uktv/ about UKTV pre-empting its regular
      programming on the 10th and 11th of June for a comedy marathon. As a result,
      the Australia information was inaccurate in the past 2 columns. It should be
      right this time.

      Also, I made a typo on the BBC's Doctor Who website last week. That site
      should be http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/ . The trailer for the Death
      Comes To Time episode is now online there, and the Death Comes To Time
      Doctor Who episode will premiere there in 6 real audio files on July 13th,
      the third anniversary of this column. The BBC will be counting the number of
      downloads, giving them their most accurate count ever on how many people
      have tuned into a Doctor Who story. The more of us who listen, the better.

      The story descriptions were not written this week due to time constraints
      and multiple technical problems.
