      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - September 8, 2004
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 7, No 36

      Maryland Public TV http://www.mpt.org has changed its upcoming
      schedule of Doctor Who stories. The Ribos Operation and The Pirate
      Planet, scheduled for September 18 and 25, have been replaced by The
      Tomb Of The Cybermen and The Dominators. The start times for those
      nights have changed to the regular time of Midnight.

      It could be a typo by Zap2it http://www.zap2it.com , but their
      online listings for KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT http://www.kued.org
      indicate that part one of The Invisible Enemy (a 4th Doctor story)
      will air on September 18. KUED's website gives no description for
      the Doctor Who episodes airing September 18 or 25. TitanTV.com's
      http://www.titantv.com listings indicate that an episode of My Hero
      will air from 11PM to Midnight on September 18 with no Doctor Who
      episode (unlikely). KUED has been airing the 5th Doctor stories
      recently, and the next one in the rotation would be either The Five
      Doctors or Warriors Of The Deep, depending on the nebulous status of
      Dalek rights.

      The American Who http://www.americanwho.net episode for early
      September was postponed from last week to this week due to Hurricane
      Frances. "The Great Dalek Debate" may now premiere as early as
      Thursday September 9.
