      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - March 17, 2004

      Since 1998, the weekly guide to known Doctor Who TV/radio/online
      broadcasts worldwide.

      Iowa Public TV http://www.iptv.org reportedly made their fund
      raising goal and more last Saturday during their broadcast of the
      BBV Documentary "The Doctors". Congratulations to Iowan (and nearby)
      Who fans.

      For anyone surprised by ABC Australia skipping The War Games to go
      to Spearhead From Space and the colour era of Doctor Who, there was
      a Dalek cameo in episode 10. The Terry Nation contract still being
      renegotiated covers Terry Nation stories and Dalek appearances after
      The Chase. ABC would have had to excise the Dalek scene to screen
      the story.

      UKTV in Australia isn't airing Doctor Who right now, but the next
      time they do viewers will have additional chances to see the
      episodes that air. Foxtel's digital service is adding time-shifted
      versions of various channels (including UKTV). UKTV will spawn UKTV
      + 2. UKTV in Australia most recently aired Doctor Who in a best of
      run in October/November 2003.

      Advance notice - the US Sci-Fi Channel will encore the 1996 Doctor
      Who TV Movie late Sunday/early Monday April 11/12 at 3AM Eastern
      Time on the East Coast/Satellite Feed and 3AM Pacific Time on the
      West Coast Feed.
