TWIDW: The Sarah Jane Schedules - January 3, 2009
- TWIDW: The Sarah Jane Schedules
January 3, 2009 - Vol 1, No 1
The weekly guide to Sarah Jane Smith boadcasts worldwide, and a
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Welcome to the new home for Sarah Jane schedule information, the
Doctor Who podcasts (a few more might appear in coming weeks), and
the stations that have rights to Doctor Who and Sarah Jane but, for
whatever reason, are not airing the show right now. If the K9 TV
series ever gets made and starts to air, it will be covered here too.
This sounds like a mix of not entirely related items, and you are
correct. But it should make it easier to find these items and to go
through the other Doctor Who sections (now titled TWIDW: This Week In
Doctor Who and TWIDW: Western Hemisphere Who Schedules). For
Torchwood information, remember TWIDW: Torchwood This Week
Canadian station BBC Kids snuck in an all night Sarah Jane marathon
on New Years Eve. Repeated all of Series 1 twice in a 10 hour event.
Now Series 1 will repeat on Sundays starting 11 January. 2 episodes
airing twice (see the listing and adjust for your time zone).
Invasion Of The Bane seems to be skipped in these repeats. We do not
know if BBC Kids has bought Series 2 at this time.

sound touch-up on the main feed later.
b) Podshock episode 136. A Christmas podshock.
The Cultdom In Audio podcast for this Sunday has moved their start
time to accomodate a live Doctor Who: Podshock special. While I have
not seen an announcement of a Live Podshock this weekend, the
announcement of a new Doctor on BBC One today will almost certainly
cause something to come out of Podshock Towers. Keep an eye on their
Talkshoe page around 1PM Eastern/10AM Pacific, 6PM UK Time.
American Who http://www.instituteforspacepolitics.org/amwho
Joey Reynolds' monthly online show with Doctor Who interviews and

Jim Iaccino and Kenn Gold look at the latest SciFi broadcasts in the
US, with emphasis on fitting in Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica,
Fringe, and the other big scifi shows of the moment. Everything is
based on US premiere dates rather than UK. Approximately 90 minutes
per episode. Show airs live with a text chat and can be downloaded
Next episode - Sunday 9PM PST (Midnight EST, 5AM GMT) - If the hosts
are aware of the Doctor Who casting, it will probably be the top
story. Also, the end is nigh for Stargate: Atlantis, Sanctuary's
season is ending, and Knight Rider is about to unveil its new paint
Tin Dog Podcast http://www.tin-dog.co.uk

West, Dave AC, Colin, and other Doctor Who fans liked the live Doctor
Who: Podshocks so much that they wanted to keep talking afterwards.
The resulting show covers Doctor Who, anything else sci-fi related,
and can go wildly off in all directions. Chats open 15 minutes before
the scheduled start time.
Sunday December 28 - episode cancelled due to a long Podshock.
This Sunday January 4:
Sunday 3PM EST/Noon PST/8PM GMT (special time, could start late) -
CIA has postponed the scheduled topic again to cover the (will be)
breaking news about the new Doctor. The late start time is to
accomodate an anticipated Doctor Who: Podshock Live broadcast.
Radio Free Skaro http://radiofreeskaro.wordpress.com
The 3 Canadians get together on Sundays for about an hour or two or
more to discuss the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane
in a fairly amusing manner.
Current episode - #115 - No Warren, No Cry. Warren misses an episode
for the first time ever due to being in Egypt, leaving Steven and
Chris to talk about The Next Doctor. At the end of the episode they
used the randomizer to pick a classic story to commentate over in
episode 116. They rigged the system to pick a story Warren does not
like, since Warren was not expected back in time for episode 116. I
forget the name of the story chosen, but it probably does not matter,
as Oods are Steven and Chris will be focused on the casting of Doctor
#11 when 116 comes out this Sunday or Monday. Will Warren find a way
to get in on the action? Will he even know about the casting, or will
he be in the dark till he returns to Canada?
A Podcast Of Impossible Things
Cardiff-based Doctor Who fans get together to discuss the latest
Doctor Who and do a full length commentary on new Doctor Who episodes.
Commentary for part 2 of The Sarah Jane Adventures - Enemy Of The
A Whovian's Quest http://www.whovianquest.com
Jonathan Rainer is podcasting his experiences as he watches Doctor
Who. In original broadcast order. From 1963. Without a gap. Can he
pull it off?
Current episode - 13 - The Web Planet. Includes an update on the
delays in the interactive website Jonathan is planning.
Bigger On The Inside http://www.earth-2.net
Mike and Dan decide to do their own podcast exploring each Doctor Who
story in broadcast order. It is a very different style from
Jonathan's. Again - can they pull it off? Part of the Earth-2 family
of podcasts. Warning - explicit language (swearing). If your
headphones leak any sound at all - do not listen at work.
Current episode - 3 - The Edge Of Destruction/Marco Polo combo show.
Next episode - 4 - The Keys Of Marinus. Yartek's revenge.
The Big Finish Podcast http://www.bigfinish.com/podcast
Big Finish podcasts at least once a month to discuss their Doctor Who
and other projects (Sapphire and Steel, Stargate (!), Dark Shadows,
Bernice Summerfield, etc).
Current episode - Big Finish Christmas special.
Cliff And Stephanie's Doctor Who Fan Podcast http://www.gspn.tv
Current episode - 17 - Review of Midnight, Turn Left, The Stolen
Earth, and Journey's End (free)
Next episode - content unknown
Cliff and Stephanie Ravenscraft review Doctor Who episodes when their
busy schedule of podcasts allows time. This time it is a group review
of the end of Series 4 and their thoughts on Doctor Who's upcoming
break/loss of David Tennant.
GSPN.tv is a network of podcasts on TV shows, daily life, religion,
and other issues that interest the 3 Ravenscrafts. Doctor Who Fan
Podcast becomes one of the pay programs in the network starting with
episode 12. The existing paying audience ranked Doctor Who dead last
in their interests (annoying the hosts who want to do the show but
are living off the revenue from their podcasts). If you subscribe to
their podcasts in order to hear the new Doctor Who episodes, be sure
to alert them that you are doing this. Half the episodes expected to
be free, half paid.
MMM Commentaries http://www.mmmcommentaries.com

the latest sci-fi news, including Doctor Who. Other episodes are
commentaries on Doctor Who episodes, Star Wars films, some Stargate
