      This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere
      February 28, 2009 - Vol 1, No 9
      The Guide to North and South American Doctor Who TV Listings
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      CANADA - The Doctor gets some SPACE. SPACE: The Imagination Station
      http://www.spacecast.com has picked up the 2008 Doctor Who Christmas
      episode "The Next Doctor". It will air uncut in a 90 minute time
      slot. Scheduled airdates:
      Saturday 14 March 9PM Eastern (8PM Central, 7PM Mountain, 6PM
      Pacific, 10PM Atlantic, 10:30PM Newfoundland)
      Sunday 15 March 3:30PM Eastern (2:30PM Central, 1:30PM Mountain,
      12:30PM Pacific, 4:30PM Atlantic, 5PM Newfoundland)

      This marks a change, as Doctor Who has been airing on CBC since 2005.
      CBC had been counted as a co-producer on Doctor Who, though this
      seems to have dropped off before Series 4 began. CBC still has never
      aired the 2007 Christmas special - Voyage Of The Damned. Repeats are
      still airing on CBC's cable/satellite station CBC Bold. SPACE is
      owned by rival broadcaster CTV, so this is not just a channel move
      for corporate synergy. It is not known if SPACE has purchased the
      rest of the specials, or if they will go for Series 1 through 4 when
      CBC's rights run out.

      If you are in Canada and have SPACE, definitely watch one of the
      broadcasts of The Next Doctor and get your friends watching. Let's
      give the episode a big launch. If you miss SPACE's broadcast or do
      not have SPACE, the episode will be streamed at SPACE's web site for
      a while after the broadcast. Expect the episode to be geolocked for
      Canadians only.

      USA - Doctor Who - Series 3 (The Runaway Bride and the 13 episode
      2007 series with Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones) are now distributed
      to Public TV stations by BBC Worldwide Americas, not American Public
      TV. Series 4 also seems to be available to buy - start date for
      Series 4 on Public TV stations is unknown. BBC Worldwide Americas
      also distributes classic Doctor Who to the stations that air it. KUED
      7 Salt Lake City UT is now on the list of stations:

      The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and
      Series 3:
      WXXI 21 Rochester, NY (already running)
      WTTW 11 Chicago, IL (start date unknown)
      WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI (already running)
      WILL 12 Urbana, IL (already running)
      WTVP 47 Peoria, IL (already running)
      Iowa Public TV (already running)
      Idaho Public TV (already running)
      Milwaukee Public TV (already running)
      KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT (starts April 18)
      OETA Oklahoma (starts 6 March)
      KLRU 18 Austin, TX (starts April 23)

      Now, I am confident that there are more stations with rights to
      Series 3 than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me.
      Somehow I doubt that BBC Worldwide Americas is going to send out a
      note with the stations who bought in like American Public TV did,
      leaving us in the dark till a station comes forward or it appears in
      their schedules.

      Series 1 has been available to public TV stations in an American
      Public TV package until February 28, 2009 (today). American Public TV
      is not re-issuing Series 1, so those episodes will be unavailable to
      public TV stations after the aforementioned date unless/until BBC
      Worldwide Americas decides to offer them. Series 2 is currently
      available to public TV stations in an American Public TV package
      until March 31, 2010. For the Series 1 and 2 packages, stations have
      bought the rights to cycle through the episodes 4 times. They are not
      required to do so.

      Thirteen stations have used all their rights to the Series 1 package -
      WLVT 39 Allentown, PA, WJCT 7 Jacksonville, FL, WILL 12 Urbana, IL,
      Iowa Public TV, KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT, Idaho Public TV, Wisconsin
      Public TV, KLRU 18 Austin, TX, KVPT 18 Fresno, CA, KTEH 54 San Jose,
      CA, WSKG 46 Binghamton, NY, WMFE 24 Orlando, FL, and KOCE 50
      Huntington, CA. OETA Oklahoma has used half of their 4th and final
      cycle of Series 1.

      3 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor
      Who run (1963-1989). Iowa Public TV is currently airing both New Who
      Series 3 and Sylvester McCoy episodes. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing
      Tom Baker episodes while their new Who rights are about to expire.
      WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes but apparently does
      not have New Who Series rights.

      In the USA, all the full power TV stations are currently due to turn
      off their analog transmitters at 11:59PM on June 12, 2009 and go
      strictly to digital broadcasting. This is the most recent final
      immovable date to be passed by Congress and signed by the President.
      Roughly one third (about 600) of the stations have previously turned
      off their analog signals and more will shut down during the 90 days
      before June 12. Cable customers are not noticing the change.
      Satellite customers who get their local channels on the satellite
      service are not noticing the change. If your TV gets local stations
      over the air and *does* have a digital tuner built in or as a set top
      box, you are fine but will want to keep doing new scans whenever
      stations in your area turn off analog, as the level of overlapping
      station interference will decrease and many stations will be moving
      to new broadcast frequencies to be received better. If a TV does not
      have a digital tuner or a box, it will only be able to get some low
      power stations that have chosen to stay analog once this transition
      is complete, and depending on where you live you may have already
      noticed stations going away.

      Public TV Premiere Run:
      I have tried to get the correct digital switch day for each of these
      stations. There has been a lot of conflicting information, and
      sometimes I have had to guess. If you are watching these stations
      over the air instead of via cable or satellite provided locals, your
      best bet is to make sure you have a digital tuner NOW (built into
      your TV, VCR, DVR, DVDR, etc or as a set-top box).

      I had previously heard that WCET had opted to buy Series 2 now rather
      than continue buying Classic Who, hence the hopeful note that I did
      not have for other stations who were finishing their Series 1 rights
      without having aired Series 2 before. One of our readers has gotten
      the current status from WCET, and it is more somber:
      "Hello, and thank you for your interest in CET, and thank you for
      your support of Doctor Who. I asked our Director of Programming your
      question, and she has informed me that unfortunately, due to budget
      cut backs, we can't afford any additional Doctor Who programming at
      this time. I'm sorry to have to deliver such a disappointing answer!
      Thank you for watching and supporting CET."

      KBTC is reportedly airing episodes out of order with a bit of
      confusion, so we cannot be sure which ones are airing. They are
      probably from Tom Baker's last season. Looking forward to a reliable
      schedule as soon as we have it again.
      KBTC/KCKA has the right to air Series 1 another 3 times before
      February 28, 2009, which they are not going to use. Looks like KBTC
      will join WHRO in only having Classic Who rights.

      Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
