      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - September 22, 2004
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      Vol 7, No 38

      A year ago this week, Outpost Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com
      broke the news that Doctor Who would finally return as a firstrun TV
      series in 2005. It's been a surprisingly quick year. Outpost
      Gallifrey and the BBC's Doctor Who site
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho have chronicled the saga as we
      have anxiously awaited the new chapter in Doctor Who's run. Now
      filming is well underway. This time next year the first set of 13
      episodes should have aired in the UK and some other countries. The
      wait is not over yet, but we are getting closer.

      Upcoming airings of Doctor Who (the 1996 TV Movie) on the
      Starz/Encore Movie Pack http://www.starz.com . Spanish language
      audio on secondary channel:

      To anyone confused by what you saw last Saturday on Maryland Public
      TV http://www.mpt.org or KUED Salt Lake City, UT
      http://www.kued.org - both stations skipped back to an earlier point
      in the Doctor Who series, presumably because they had no stories
      beyond the points where they were. Maryland Public TV is now airing
      the Patrick Troughton stories while KUED has gone to the middle of
      the Tom Baker era. To date, I have found no evidence of any of the
      other 6 US Doctor Who affiliates planning to jump out of rotation
      before the end of October.
