This Week In Doctor Who PBS and Podcasts
September 26, 2009 - Vol 1, No 37
All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
by Benjamin F. Elliott
USA - Wisconsin Public TV http://www.wpt.org
is moving Doctor Who next weekend. Effective Saturday 3 October, episodes will now air at 9:40PM Central. The Sunday repeat ends after Sunday 27 September (tomorrow) as well. The time change coincides with WPT finishing the first cycle of Series 3 episodes it had the rights to air and beginning a rerun of Series 2.
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 stations.
If you're a PBS station airing Doctor Who and I don't have you listed - contact me. If you're watching Doctor Who on a PBS station that's not on this list - contact me AND tell me the day, time, and episode that aired so I can track things down (some stations have websites where schedule information is - lacking).
The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 3:
WXXI 21 Rochester, NY
WTTW 11 Chicago, IL (currently in first run)
WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI
WILL 12 Urbana, IL
WTVP 47 Peoria, IL
Iowa Public TV
Idaho Public TV
Wisconsin Public TV (currently in first run)
Milwaukee Public TV
KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT
KLRU 18 Austin, TX
Alaska Public TV
WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY
KERA 13 Dallas, TX (currently in first run)
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 or scheduled the show. Unlike previous years, we are in the dark till a station comes forward or new Who appears in their schedules.
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. American Public TV is no longer offering Series 1 - I do not know if BBC Worldwide Americas will offer those stations to public TV stations now or not.
2 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor Who run (1963-1989), but not New Who. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing Peter Davison episodes. WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes.

-Podshock Episode 162 - Part 2 of the interview with Gary Russell, and a guest appearance from the famous Jules Burt of Rise Of The Cybermen. Both interviews recorded at DWNY events in New York.
Radio Free Skaro http://www.radiofreeskaro.com
The 3 Canadians (Warren, Steven, Chris) get together on the weekends for about an hour or more to discuss the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane in a fairly amusing manner. When one is away, the 4th Canadian (Katrina) will play.
-159 - "Throw Down The Gauntlet" - Pennant Roberts' turn came up in the Miniscope. But Doctor Who Magazine released fan rankings of all the Doctor Who TV stories, and that's just red meat for podcasters experiencing a news shortage.
Episode 160 - "Middle Age Times Four" - Another all new episode of Radio Free Skaro, with most of the audio and jokes being used for the first time.
DWO Whocast http://www.thewhocast.com
Trevor from Australia and Marty from the UK talk Doctor Who with themselves, others, and teddy bears dressed as doctors. Now with a rock version of the opening theme, the Whocast continues to ask the questions that pop in to their heads. Regular correspondent - James. Frequent guest - Michael of the Tin Dog podcast.
#135 - DWO Does Seinfeld. The podcast description promises an episode about nothing! Trevor and Marty spoof themselves a bit by throwing some deliberate errors into the episode and seeing if anybody notices. Meanwhile - a literary competition is announced.
Tin Dog Podcast http://www.tin-dog.co.uk
UK based podcast looking at the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, or Sarah Jane Adventures. New episodes ever 2 weeks or so.
#100 - The 100th Episode: Michael's Top 20 Whoness Things. Dedicated to the memory of Andrew Barber. A very special episode of Tin Dog Podcast, but in a good way.
Extra - A short update from Tin Dog explaining his temporary absence.
The Cultdom Collective http://www.cultdom.com
Live Talkshoe Broadcasts http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/54821
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 54821
Doctor Who (and other) fans get together to discuss anything that is unusual, odd, or otherwise not normal. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere - until somebody mentions the quality control of Talkshoe's service. Chats open 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
8. Samantha's Slash Spectacular. Samantha, HowlieT, et al do a special episode exploring Slash fiction. Origin, history, present, various types. Everything you wanted to know about Slash but were afraid to ask, in an episode that runs 2 hours, 26 minutes, 8 seconds. Adults Only episode.
Sunday 3:30PM EDT/12:30PM PDT/8:30PM BST - Has Bond Shaken His Last Martini? This episode is not expected to focus on the James Bond Jr. animated series from the 1990s. Back to normal tag for this episode.
Two Minute Time Lord http://twominutetimelord.com
A bite-sized commentary and revew show. Host Chip's interest was rekindled by the 2005 revival. He believes in balancing old fandom and new viewers, respect for the past and breaking the rules. He tries to keep his pontifications to 120 seconds, because we're ALL in a hurry these days.
#64 - Doctor Who's Unpredictable TV Future. With the rapid change in modern technology and how people experience their entertainment, Chip dares to imagine the unimaginable about Doctor Who's future.
Staggering Stories http://www.staggeringstories.net
A wild, wandering podcast with Doctor Who and the other flavours of the moment winding together roughly once every 2 weeks. The website's main focus is on stories collected through the years.
Episode 54 - "Hounds Of The Whooverville". All 5 of the current cast of Staggering actually made it to the same recording for the first time in a while. Hear about their adventures at Whooverville. Marvel at how the Head Of Pertwee has become an international superstar, but still finds a way to "keep it real". Feedback, including another trailer for a short story written by some great person or other.
Episode 55 - "Jeanless In Crawley" - An all new episode of Staggering Stories, coming Sunday. Based on her advisory in episode 54, Jean was not expected to be in this episode. If you need all 5 hosts of Staggering Stories for an episode to satisfy you - well, it's very rare that all 5 of them are in the same episode, so you're probably doomed.
The Flashing Blade Podcast http://www.flashingblade.org.uk
Tony Gallichan. Jo ()! One man, one woman. One with decades of Doctor Who fan experience. Another who turns on the show when it airs on TV. One has lots of cats. Another can say the word "news" in various amusing ways. Together they unite for a weekly look into the worlds of Doctor Who, hoping to make a TV show for the brain. Can you get feedback in on their latest episode before they record their next one - good luck with that.
16. Image Of The Fendahl and The Holy Terror. The Holy Terror - one of the best Big Finish audios (and apparently a poor seller). Image Of The Fendahl - the Tom Baker story with the most salt. Tony, Jo!, and their cats examine these exciting tales that can get lost in the shuffle.
Episode 17, in which I think they might be reading out something I sent in - probably depends what they thought about it. Also - a Big Finish audio and a Doctor Who TV story.
Bridging The Rift http://bridgingtherift.wordpress.com
Katrina (Radio Free Skaro) and Nat bring the worlds of Doctor Who fandom, Torchwood fandom, Sarah Jane Adventures fandom, K9 fandom, and other areas together. Each week - a special guest co-host.
9. Interview with Lydia aka Girl On The Moon. Topic - webcomics. Serious technical problems delayed this episode. It will probably be out after I finish editing this section of TWIDW but before the column reaches you. Are you prepared for the next chapter of the Rift mythology?

19. Alternate Uses Of The Plunger Hand. I have not heard this episode yet, but it promises to discuss Talk Like A Pirate Day, the Sarah Jane Adventures, a Casonova photoshoot, and a disturbing episode of The Bill. All in the context of David Tennant. Recorded on Talk Like A Pirate Day (19 September 2009).

Full length commentaries on Torchwood: Children Of Earth episode 1 and Torchwood: Children Of Earth episode 5.
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 - 22. The Tomb Of The Cybermen and The Abominable Snowmen. One of the Doctor's companions is growing rapidly in the affections of our hosts. Another isn't quite winning them over yet. And how will the hosts cope with having a full Troughton story - all the video survives.
Hoo On Who http://hooonwho.com
Fan reviews of recent Doctor Who DVDs by David Hooie, frequently with a guest co-host.
#14. The Caves Of Androzani. Well, eventually David reviews The Caves Of Androzani. First he goes a bit off format to have an excellent interview with podcaster/radio host Steve Glosson, host of SHoE, Geek Out Loud, and the Big Honkin' Show. Also, David is planning a get together with listeners at Gallifrey 21. Now, if I'm right about the hot tub he wants to meet at, he may have to relocate the meeting to the somewhat cooler pool just a few feet away - my memory is that the hot one is rather small. Rest assured, there is a detailed review of The Caves Of Androzani in the episode.
The Cloister Room http://thecloisterroom.com
Tom Dickinson begins a solo Doctor Who podcast effort with short shows on short subject that get to the point, bulldoze through the point, back up to ground the point down some more, then flee the scene before the police arrive.
Current episode - 4. Requiem For A Drama. Tom returns after 4 weeks away and looks at shows that are cancelled before their time. Is it worth investing in a show that might soon (or has already) been cancelled. Tom's view is similar to mine (yes, it is worth it), but you're downloading Tom's show for his opinions on this.
Tim's Take On ...
Tim Drury's podcast on various issues. Available on iTunes.
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 - September podcast. The show gets a bit back to normal, with a lack of celebrity guests. Upcoming news is announced. Thoughts are had. And I'm sure a mug of tea was drunk somewhere. The Missing Season of Colin Baker stories is about to hit. Judge Dredd audios are returning, along with the shocking reason why they went away in the first place. These and other twists are covered in the September Big Finish podcast.
Tachyon TV http://www.tachyon-tv.co.uk
Irregular and irreverant podcast looking at the world of Doctor Who with a funhouse mirror and coming out the other side holding a plush toy that wasn't really the one you wanted but you'll keep it anyway because you can give it to your girlfriend to impress her. It's that kind of show.
Current segment - a short appeal by "Rula Lenska".
MMM Commentaries/Fantragic http://www.mmmcommentaries.com
Roving Australian podcasting gang, including Trevor from the DWO Whocast. Commentaries on Doctor Who episodes, Star Wars films, some Stargate stuff, and others. The Frantragic episodes look at Doctor Who and other sci-fi news. Fantragic episodes are on a different iTunes feed from MMM Commentary episodes.
Current Doctor Who episode - Journey's End. If the description in the iTunes tag is anything to go by, this running commentary on the Doctor Who Series 4 finale will not have a happy ending.

West 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. Show founder West has alerted Dave AC and West that he will return full time to hosting duties with episode 101. Chats open 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
Current episode - 100. Dave AC and Ian retire as the regular guest hosts. Final episodes of TV shows are discussed. And could we have celebrity guest appearances?
Episode 101 is now not scheduled. We do not know when CIA's return date is.
