      The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide.

      BBC One - Smith And Jones (Doctor Who Series 3 Premiere!)

      The 3rd Series premiere on BBC One (not counting The Runaway Bride at
      Christmas) will be on the 31st of March, it seems. Just a month away.
      Here's hoping for a great set of episodes that does fantastic in the
      UK and airs across the world - quickly.

      Hopefully US Doctor Who fans are paying attention, as we're entering
      a very busy period. BBC America has its final repeats of Series One
      (the Christopher Eccleston episodes) for now (including a marathon on
      Saturday) - Doctor Who is being rested and replaced by Robin Hood.
      Meanwhile, as of March the public TV stations that have bought Doctor
      Who Series One can begin to air them - the first unedited free TV
      broadcasts of new Who in the US. Here is the current list of 40
      stations arranged by the premiere dates for the Doctor.

      Premieres this week - don't forget!
      KLCS 58 Los Angeles, CA - Friday March 2nd 10PM
      WILL 12 Urbana, IL - Saturday March 3rd 8PM - 2 episodes
      KERA 13 Dallas, TX - Saturday March 3rd 9PM - 2 episodes

      For now, public TV stations can only buy Series One. The better it
      does on the stations that bought it, the more likely fans will get to
      see more Who on public TV stations.

      To readers outside the US - the broadcast public TV stations have
      much more freedom in their schedules than the major broadcast network
      affiliates (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW), and their lineups vary much more
      from place to place. Some cities have multiple public TV stations due
      to overlaps and different educational organizations setting up
      stations in the same area. Doctor Who is not part of the PBS
      schedule, it is an optional extra purchase from a syndicator, so
      stations are choosing to run it rather than just having a network
      send it to them. This is how most Americans saw Doctor Who from the
      1970s to 1990s (except for the TV Movie on FOX). Almost anyone can
      see at least one public TV station, and while they don't have the
      audience of ABC, CBS, NBC, or FOX, they can reach many people that
      cable networks like SciFi or BBC America will not get. This Week In
      Doctor Who began with the idea that it would be nice to know which
      public TV stations are airing Doctor Who when and which episodes are
      running. I'm delighted that the Doctor is back on at least some of
      these stations and hope the public TV run is a big success.

      If that's not enough to support the public TV showing of Doctor Who -
      SciFi cuts most of the episodes to meet the timeslot. BBC America
      does a bad edit of the last few seconds of each episode to erase any
      sign of the Next Time trailer, then remakes the closing credits their
      own way. Both put lots of annoying preview pictures and information
      in the bottom left section of the screen at times when you'd rather
      be seeing the story. They put Doctor Who ads on screen during other
      shows when you'd rather be watching those shows. Full credit to SciFi
      and BBC America for airing Doctor Who, and they treat it as well as
      their most popular shows. But like most TV networks these days, they
      treat all their shows pretty poorly.

      The public TV stations will be airing the show uncut (some of them
      with Doctor Who Confidential airing afterwards). When not in pledge
      season, episodes will be airing straight through with no commercial
      interruptions. While some public TV stations are beginning the
      disgusting practice of putting promos for other shows on screen
      during a program, they are still much more restrained than SciFi and
      BBC America. Many of the public TV stations are not doing this and
      should get thanked for avoiding the practice.

      The public TV run of the show will be the nicest the new Doctor Who
      will look in the US short of buying the DVDs. If one of your stations
      is airing the show, this is the time to get friends and family who
      haven't tried the new series yet to tune in.

      David Thiel, Program Director of WILL-TV in Urbana, IL, has offered
      some advice "... for dealing with Your Friendly Local Public
      Television Station and helping to make the series a success on
      American broadcast TV:

      "1) Encourage others to watch the show. (Especially those with
      Neilsen diaries. ;) : Try it out on people who either have not been
      previously exposed to "Who," or who may have been turned off by the
      original show. I like to say that this is not your father's "Doctor

      "2) If you notice your local station conducting pledge breaks around
      the series, be sure to make a generous donation and let them know
      that your contribution is in support of it. Most importantly, fulfill
      that pledge when the envelope arrives in the mail (or pay by credit
      card in the first place). Programmers such as myself love it not only
      when the phones ring in the studio, but when we learn that a given
      series has a high rate of fulfillment. And word gets around when a
      show is a proven success at pledge time.

      "3) If you contact your local station about airing the show, be
      polite. Don't harange, threaten or insult. Keep in mind that the
      person on the other end of the line is probably a pretty good Joe or
      Jane. Heck, it might even be me. Most if not all of us really want to
      please as many people as possible, knowing fully well that we have
      neither the airtime nor acquisition budget to please everyone.

      "4) Don't get hung up on the original series. There was a reluctance
      for some in the PTV community to get involved with new "Who" out of
      concern it would lead to renewed pressure to repurhcase several
      hundred half-hours of Tom Baker, etc. Even though I'm sure that no
      one here would be guilty of such things, in years past certain
      elements of fandom have gained a reputation for behaving entitled to
      their local station running "Who" in perpetuity, even though they
      themselves were no longer watching or supporting it."
