All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
by Benjamin F. Elliott
USA - Wisconsin Public TV http://www.wpt.org has moved Doctor Who. Effective today, Saturday 3 October, episodes air at 9:40PM Central. The Sunday repeats are over. 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.
Note - the October 10 edition of the This Week In Doctor Who segments will effectively be a 2 week version, as the column is taking October 17th off. Back to normal on the 24th.
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
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.
And now, the listings:

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.
-160 - "Ferme La Boucher" - Radio Free Skaro gives a look ahead to Gallifrey 2010, now that a tentative list of the panels has come out. More hints that Warren may miss an episode soon. At least one of the team actually sounds excited about the Sarah Jane Adventures. And the Miniscope causes them to review the Doctor Who saga of writer Chris Boucher.
Episode 161 - "Eleven To Sarahsday" - As the third series of Sarah Jane Adventures prepares to launch, and the Doctor Who/Torchwood news fronts remain very dead, will RFS go crazy for Sarah Jane? The TV series, anyway? Meanwhile, the interloper (K9) has put out a darn exciting trailer, threatening to go after the children's audience.

Sunday 3PM EDT/Noon PDT/8PM BST (Experimental Time Change!) - 10. Doctor Who's Mighty 200 - The Good - In light of Doctor Who Magazine getting fandom to vote on the Doctor Who stories (and the abominable story renumbering done to make Planet Of The Dead the 200th story), the Cultdom gang looks at the top Doctor Who on the poll. Yes, Cultdom is doing a pure Doctor Who topic.

#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 55 - "Pick Of The Pits" - The Staggering team gives a look at Quatermass, a concept that UK sci-fi fans are very familiar with and US/Canadian sci-fi fans often have never heard of. The universe's biggest escape pod is needed for the new Escape Pod Disc episode. The team look at Doctor Who Magazine's poll of the Doctor Who stories. Feedback. And so forth. All in the last Staggering episode where both digits are the same till episode 66.
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.
17. A Sylvester McCoy special. Tony and Jo! look at Remembrance Of The Daleks (origin of the 7th Doctor as schemer) and the Big Finish audio Shadow Of The Scourge (set during the time of the Virgin Doctor Who New Adventures novels, where the scheming was at its height). Will Jo! accept Tony's theories on Sylvester McCoy? Will Jo ever get her hands on some Doctor Who New Adventures? Will there be a new segment of As The Action Happens? The answer to at least one of those questions was a yes. Lots of feedback, including a submission by me about the real life of a cat known as Wycliff.

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.
Coming Sunday? - 23. The Ice Warriors and Enemy Of The World. 12 episodes. One story has 4 surviving episodes. One story has 1 surviving episode. Our team struggles with missing Who again - will they like the stories anyway?
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.

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.

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?
