      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - July 7, 2004
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 7, No 27

      KBDI 12 Denver, CO http://www.kbdi.org announced before the start of
      Doctor Who on July 3rd that it was the final broadcast. "Farewell...
      Thank You to All of Our Loyal Viewers." It appears that the repeat
      of the concluding episodes of The Sea Devils this Friday will be the
      end of Doctor Who's long run on this secondary Doctor Who affiliate.
      This brings the number of US broadcasters airing Doctor Who down to

      The Daily Telegraph in Sydney, Australia
      http://dailytelegraph.news.com.au/index.jsp had an article in their
      print edition on 7 July discussing lots of new Doctor Who
      merchandise that would be hitting the stores prior to the delivery
      of the new series to Australia in February 2005. The article is in
      the supplement "Seven Days". The article does not indicate which
      station would air the series, though it's been assumed that ABC
      (currently airing the reruns) would air the new Doctor Who firstrun.
      While it is expected that the new series will be sold to many
      countries without too much lag time, this is the first time that a
      date (which might not be a broadcast date) has been linked to anyone
      besides BBC One. The article was not available online as of
      publication time.

      Meanwhile, on the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho
      and Outpost Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com the names and back
      cover blurbs of the three hardcover Ninth Doctor Novels for 2005 are
      online. The blurbs include dates for the novels (March, April, and

      I've been holding off on speculating on the premiere date for the
      new series, waiting for official word. The news on the novels and
      the Daily Telegraph article back up the idea that the BBC wants to
      premiere the new episodes early in 2005. While we still do not have
      an official premiere date, it's nice to think that we are getting
      close now.

      KTEH/KCAH 54,25 San Jose/Watsonville, CA http://www.kteh.org will
      encore their interview with Jon Pertwee late Saturday July 17 at
      1:35AM PDT. While KTEH has been having budget problems and unable to
      purchase Doctor Who for well over a year, they do periodically air
      some of the specials they have made with Doctor Who actors between
      1981 and 2003. Hopefully KTEH will be able to resume airing Doctor
      Who in the future.
