      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - June 2, 2004
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 7, No 22

      BBC Four http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour/ is devoting much of its prime
      time lineup in June to a Celebration of the 1960s. Documentaries,
      movies, and selected TV shows from that decade. A Sci-Fi night is
      scheduled for Saturday 26 June. A complete schedule has not been
      released yet, but it is possible that a Doctor Who episode could air
      on that night. Cross your fingers.

      Upcoming air dates of the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie on the Starz!
      Encore Movie Pack in the US:
      Thursday 3 June 9:30AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery

      The July schedules for the Starz! Channels have come out, and Doctor
      Who is not on the lineup for that month. The movie is also not on
      the Starz OnDemand service at this time.

      KBTC 28 Tacoma / KCKA 15 Centralia, WA will air The Talons Of Weng-
      Chiang as a pledge special on Saturday June 12 at 6PM PDT.

      American Who and Sci-Fi Overdrive http://www.americanwho.net will be
      on WKKD AM1580 Chicago, IL beginning this weekend. If you're in the
      Chicago area and want to hear Doctor Who talk then American Who is
      the 4th hour of Sci-Fi Overdrive, airing at 4AM Central Time. Due to
      a problem with the overnight delivery service, the May 31 edition of
      Sci-Fi Overdrive arrived *after* the broadcast date, so the May 24
      edition was repeated. The entire May 31 show is expected to be
      available online soon, including the interview with Katy Manning on
      American Who. The Katy Manning interview will be encored on the June
      7 American Who.
