      KTEH 54 San Jose, CA http://www.kteh.org is airing an archival
      interview they did with Peter Davison regarding Doctor Who this
      Saturday night at 1:35AM PDT. While they don't have the rights for
      Doctor Who at the moment, they are trying to put more sci-fi back on
      the lineup, including Red Dwarf weekly starting this weekend and
      more archival Doctor Who interviews in November.

      DirecTV http://www.directv.com is expected to add several more local
      cities to their satellite service in the next month. Cities where a
      station airs Doctor Who (Champaign, IL, Cedar Rapids, IA, Quad
      Cities, IA-IL) have been noted in the column with the theoretical
      start date. Any information is tentative - satellite subscribers in
      those areas should keep an eye on http://www.dbstalk.com ,
      http://www.dbsforums.com , and http://www.satelliteguys.us to see
      when/if the local channels actually become available.

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

      Sci-Fi Sunday lineup, with Red Dwarf airing weekly in order starting
      Sunday October 3 at 10PM PDT. Oddly enough, DirecTV local channel
      subscribers in Monterey get the National PBS feed on channel 25, not
      KTEH/KCAH. More KTEH produced Doctor Who interviews from the 80s and
      90s are expected to air in November.

      Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
