      Yet another short edition. Between pledge season pre-empting Doctor Who on a
      number of PBS stations and a new job shaking up my routine, the column has
      been a bit on the back burner. Hopefully things will return a bit to normal
      next week, and subscribers of the twidwtalk list should start seeing it get
      livelier too.

      Since this is a column about Doctor Who on TV, let us have a moment of
      silence for Donald Wilson. In 1963, Mr. Wilson was the head of the BBC
      Script Department. He greenlighted the pitch from producer Sydney Newman
      which became Doctor Who. Donald Wilson was heavily involved in British TV
      from the 1950s to the 1980s. He died March 11, at age 91. (details from

      If you are reading This Week In Doctor Who on the Yahoo Groups web page, be
      alert. Yahoo Groups will be offline for most of the weekend as they change
      the servers they are operating on. You will not be able to read the posts
      from This Week In Doctor Who, or any other Yahoo Group, on their web pages
      during this period.

      RADIO/INTERNET:

      BBCI http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho/death/index.shtml
      "Death Comes To Time"
      Episode 3B "The Child, part 2 of 3" now online
      Episode 3C goes online March 22. All previous installments still online.
      Requires some version of Realplayer to listen to. My advice - do NOT upgrade
      to Real One if you can help it - the older RealPlayer is better, and I
      haven't found a way to switch back to the old one yet.

      WSBR AM740 West Palm Beach, FL http://www.wsbrmoneytalkradio.com/
      Fri 11PM EST "Interstellar Transmissions" http://www.scifiradioguy.com/
      Realaudio http://www.neuronbroadcasting.com/radiostreams/wsbr-am.htm
      Sci-fi news talk show with periodic Doctor Who references. This week's
      guest - Lloyd Kaufman. The redesigned website is now saying that Windows
      Media Player is required to listen to the show, so you might want to visit
      around and check before broadcast time if you're planning to listen. I will
      recheck the links before next week. Maybe they've discovered the horrors of
      "Real One", too.

      TV:

      UK:

      UK Gold http://www.sceneone.co.uk/s1/tv/listings
      Sat 7:10-9AM GMT "The Curse Of Peladon" movie
      Sun 6:15-9AM GMT "The Sea Devils" movie
      Well, it seems official. UK Gold wasn't airing restored versions of Doctor
      Who stories after all. The final piece of evidence was when UK Gold aired
      their "unique" version of The Daemons again. In the restored version,
      episodes 1,2,3,+5 are restored to colour by combining a color US off-air
      recording with a black & white master print, while episode 4 is the original
      625 line PAL colour VT. UK Gold airs the first 4 episodes in black & white,
      then presents the recoloured episode 5. This unusual version previously
      aired in the UK in 1998 and 2000/2001, with at least one report that it was
      used in 1997. In the mid 1990s, UK Gold aired the correct colour version.
