      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - August 4, 2004
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 7, No 31

      Last week, Auf Widersehen Pet star Noel Clarke was announced as
      Mickey in the new series, who appears to be a semi-regular. This
      week actress Camille Coduri was announced as Jackie, the mother of
      Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper). Camille has announced on her
      website http://www.camillecoduri.co.uk that she will appear in 6 of
      the 13 episodes.

      UKTV Gold + 1 has been a 24 hour a day simulcast of UKTV Gold (with
      1 hour delay) for some time now, so I am combining their listings.
      They were separate originally due to then-UK Gold + 1 only being on
      the air part time.

      ABC http://www.abc.net.au/tv in Australia will be skipping Frontier
      In Space and Planet Of The Daleks later this month due to contract
      issues with Daleks at the time the package was ordered. For whatever
      reason, the issues do not extend to Death To The Daleks and Genesis
      Of The Daleks, which are set to air when ABC reaches the relevant
      points of the series.

      American Who http://www.americanwho.net has a new edition up (see
      below). In response to requests, the news section has been
      streamlined to get to the interviews faster, with the reasoning that
      if you knew of American Who you were probably already reading
      Outpost Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com and other Who news
      sites. The interview with Lars Pearson in the current installment is
      very funny.

      The 6th Doctor begins his defense with a tale of his adventures in
      the future. Rather cheeky, as the implication is that if he is
      executed he will never be able to do those actions in the future. A
      spaceliner is in danger, as multiple murderers are on board
      seemingly oblivious to each other, bringing death and doubt.

      succeeds at the illusion. The 3rd Doctor and a Thal expeditionary

      Series 7, Episodes 23 through 25. Doctor: Jon Pertwee.
      3 episodes this weekend. In the alternate universe, the Earth's
      crust has been pierced. Stahlmann's gas has been unleashed. It may
      not be possible to put the genie back in the bottle. Episode 5
      includes a scene where the characters listen to a radio. It's a very
      good scene - the only scene I remember from the first time I saw the
      story at a very young age. Scarily, the scene was cut from the
      original UK showing in 1970 because they figured fans would notice
      the voice on the radio was Pertwee's. Thank goodness the scene got
      put in the overseas version and survives to this day.

      Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
