All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
by Benjamin F. Elliott
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
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:

ONLINE RADIO SHOWS/PODCASTS:
This section is always open to discovering new Doctor Who/Sarah Jane/K9/Torchwood material of note. If you think your webcast/podcast (or somebody else's) belongs in this section, e-mail me.
Due to production problems, there was not time to update this section of the listings. Several podcasts have done tributes to Barry Letts, Cultdom Collective is having a fight with Talkshoe which now believes in eating podcasts instead of recording them, and no word yet on whether Tokyo survived the visit of Warren Freyburg. Hoping things are back to normal next time.
Doctor Who: Podshock http://www.gallifreyanembassy.org/vortex
Live Talkshoe broadcasts - http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/23358
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 23358
1) Home to the longest continuously running weekly-ish international Doctor Who chat show done in podcast format. Hosted by Louis Trapani, Ken Deep, and James Naughton, with frequent contributions/co-hosting by Dave AC, Mike Doran, and a cast of many. There is a feed for studio shows and a feed for live shows.
2) Also home to the Sonic Newsdriver, Louis Trapani's periodic rundown of new Doctor Who news.
3) Also home to the Hitch-hiker's Guide To British Sci-Fi, a podcast covering a mix of shows, including Doctor Who.
-Podshock Episode 164 - Recorded after the iPlayer International story hit but before news of the passing of former Doctor Who producer Barry Letts came out. Joshua Lou joins Louis, Ken, and James in an in-depth review of Robot, Tom Baker's first story and the last produced by Barry Letts.
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.
- 161 - "Second Hand Rumours" - A series of rumours intrigues our hosts. A list of writers for the new Doctor Who series has been published. Lots of DVD speculation. And the Miniscope looks at the Doctor Who work of Fiona Cumming.
- 162 - "Maloney Sandwich" - This episode was recorded early due to Warren's trip to Japan. An introduction was added before its early release last night, and the introduction discussed the passing of Barry Letts. In the body of the show, fury from the deep of their souls at Matt Smith's first series being officially counted as Series 1. International iPlayer issues. David Maloney is the subject of the Miniscope.
-In the introduction, Steven and Chris mentioned the possibility of a Barry Letts special. And as always with RFS, there is a secret project or two that they could throw out at the world. Likely on a Wednesday.
-163 - "Warren Vs. MechaWarren" - Warren slips on something radioactive in Japan and becomes a 10 foot monster, only for an evil scientist (who at last report was *not* believed to be Adam Purcell with a dodgy mustache) to build a robot version of Warren. The two Warrens fight and destroy Tokyo, with Greenpeace planning to kill the winner and use the winner's body as an example of the evils of nuclear power. Meanwhile, the remaining RFS hosts look at Chris Clough in the Miniscope segment, and suspect they might be a bit vicious to him.
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.
#138 - Released too soon to column issuing for me to check it out, but from the description Trevor is looking at spinoff content that has been forgotten by time - Downtime, Wartime, Shakedown, The Tom Baker Years, and Just Who On Earth Is Tom Baker? Wait - no Time-Rift, with Jon Blum as the Doctor and set in the Maryland/DC area?
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.
#102 - Review of the Frontier In Space 2 disc DVD. Michael's opinion on the new Doctor Who logo.
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.
10. Doctor Who's Mighty 200 - The Good (part 1). An episode intended to discuss the top 10 Doctor Who stories as voted on by the Doctor Who Magazine readership only had the time for stories 10 through 5.
Sunday 11 October 3PM EDT/Noon PDT/8PM BST - 11. Doctor Who's Mighty 200 - The Good (part 2). Stories 4 through 1 were expected to be reviewed in this episode. Events concerning the new Doctor Who logo, certain set photos and stories in the media, the passing of Barry Letts, and other stuff could draw the show off course. Time will tell.
Sunday 18 October 3PM EDT/Noon PDT/8PM BST - 12. Doctor Who's Mighty 200 - The Bad. If the stories at the top of the list are finished on the 11th, the current plan is to hit the stories at the bottom of the list in 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.
#65 - Two Minute Miscellany (note - runs 3 minutes). Some news headlines, feedback on the future of Who on TV, and Tony Lee has a new comic coming out. Oh, and the controversy on the K9 trailer.
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.
Episode 56 - "We Always Miss The News" - Due out sometime this weekend, the latest Staggering Stories was recorded on Monday night, when they knew that the new Doctor Who logo was coming Tuesday, but had no clue what it looked like. Journey back to the simpler time of last Monday, when life was very different.
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.
18. Full Circle. Jo! has a real life! This may be bad news for her ability to review stories - this time they just got through Full Circle, with a Big Finish audio waiting for later. Tony and Jo! also have an idea for reviewing the Sarah Jane Adventures - kid-submitted reviews. (Two minute time lord rips his hair out as everybody seemed to ignore a similar podcasting idea of his months ago.) The first episode that has reached the drinking age in the UK.
Episode 19, recorded before most of this week's craziness.
Episode 20, which will probably get recorded in a few days, and be well aware of the week's craziness. In the USA, this would be the episode who is counting the days till it turns 21, can ditch the fake ID, and drink alcohol legally.
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.
10. Tim Drury, Living In Second Life. Guest panelist Tim Drury guides Katrina and Nat through the past and present of Second Life, and the Doctor Who/Torchwood fan communities that exist therein. Also, feedback on previous topics.
Coming Soon - Episode 11. It just hadn't come out at publication time.
I don't have time to recheck right now, but Warren of Radio Free Skaro revealed that he is on either episode 11 or 12 of Bridging The Rift.
The Minute Doctor Who Podcast http://web.mac.com/backintheussr6/The_Minute_Doctor_Who_Podcast/Podcast/Podcast.html

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 - 23. The Ice Warriors and Enemy Of The World. Dan and Mike have a pretty good time with both stories, even with a bunch of episodes still missing.
Coming eventually - 24. The Web Of Fear. One story to rule them all. One story to guide them. And other stuff.
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.
