      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - March 10, 2004
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 7, No 10

      Doctor Who Magazine had big news in its latest edition - telesnaps
      of episodes 1,2,3,5,6,+7 of the first season story Marco Polo have
      turned up. These photos give an extensive look into how the episodes
      looked. Details at http://www.gallifreyone.com , and all over the
      net by now.

      Iowa Public TV http://www.iptv.org is airing the BBV documentary The
      Doctors as a pledge special this weekend. People who can't tune in
      Saturday night can visit IPTV's website to see how to pledge online.

      Maryland Public TV http://www.mpt.org is planning a Viewers Choice
      week from Monday, April 26 to Friday, April 30. On the website you
      can vote from their choices for shows to air during the week, or you
      can write in programs. Doctor Who is not among the regular choices
      on the site, so if people want to voice support for Who airing in
      that week they'll have to write in. Obviously, they only want to
      hear from people who can actually see MPT.

      If you're in Australia, you probably heard this already, but The War
      Games will not air on ABC next week. Copyright issues regarding
      Dalek appearances in stories after The Chase. Since the Dalek scene
      in episode 10 was not excised, the story could not air.

      Trying to update my information. Are these repeaters still on the
      air? Have they moved? Were they eaten by Drashigs?

      Sea Devils awakened from long hibernation. Each time, the 3rd Doctor

      species chose to wipe out humanity, and failed. The world thought
      both species were extinct. But in 2084, it turns out both species
      are very much alive, and eager for revenge. The 5th Doctor finds
      himself with one final chance to try for peace. Are the Silurians
