      THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - February 14/15, 2002

      Welcome to a special Thursday edition of This Week In Doctor Who. This is
      the weekend of the big GallifreyOne convention in Los Angeles, which some of
      the readership will be attending, so hopefully this edition will get out
      before most people leave for the convention.

      Episode 2 of Death Comes To Time, the BBC Doctor Who online drama, is now
      online. Well, the first section of it, anyway. BBC Online is dividing each
      of the remaining 4 episodes up into 3 parts, releasing one part a week over
      the next 12 weeks. Beginning next week, each section will come out on
      Fridays. Like episode 1, you need some version of
      RealAudio/RealPlayer/RealOne to listen to it, and if you have a faster
      browser you'll probably want the Enhanced Version with illustrations.
      Anthony Stewart Head (aka "Giles" on Buffy The Vampire Slayer) is among the
      guest cast. Consider it the BBC's Valentine's Day gift to female Doctor Who
      fans.

      USA - WYIN 56 Gary, IN is back on the air after temporarily losing their
      transmitter due to winter storms. They finally aired episodes 1+2 of Four To
      Doomsday on February 9, two weeks after airing episodes 3+4.

      CANADA - BBC Kids has gone back to the beginning of the Tom Baker episodes.
      They had only purchased the first 3 Baker seasons (Robot through The Talons
      Of Weng-Chiang), to see how good the show did in the ratings. As BBC Kids is
      a digital cable channel, most Canadians can't get it, and ratings for the
      Canadian digital channels have been poor in general. We'll see if they buy
      more episodes, or if they even stay on the air.

      No story descriptions again this week. Alas.

      out in July, breaking BBC download records. The 7th Doctor and Antigone, a
      new companion, investigate a new threat to time itself. Meanwhile, Ace is
      having an adventure of her own. The remaining four episodes are being
      released starting February 14. Each episode will be broken up over 3 weeks.
      New parts will come out on Fridays starting February 22nd. Some version of
      RealAudio/RealPlayer/RealOne required to listen to the story. If you have a
