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:

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.
11. Doctor Who's Mighty 200 - The Good (part 2). Ian and Dave do a studio show summarizing what happened when they recorded episode 11, as Talkshoe ate the recording. The top 4 stories were discussed.

13. Doctor Who's Mighty 200 - The Bad (part 2). Talkshoe was working properly again and recorded this look at the least popular stories by fan vote.
14. Doctor Who's Mighty 200 Wrap Up. Final thoughts. What callers thought should have gone in the top spots instead.
Sunday 8 November 3PM EST/Noon PST/8PM GMT - 15. A new topic of some type. Also, find out when the show will air on 15 November, as the new Doctor Who episode on BBC One will complicate things.

The good news that Dollhouse would not be yanked (Dollhouse had been pulled for 6 weeks between recording and this episodes going online).
Episode 58 - "On time and under budget" - Well, that's the rumor I hear about how the latest Staggering Story recording turned out. That was also what was said about the recordings of The Twin Dilemma. ;)

Samantha (Romana 2) explores Doctor Who and fandom in Australia, sometimes with the aid of the ladies of the Gallifreyan Time Love Brigade. Frequent cast member on CIA: Cultdom In Audio.
13a. Samantha gives her thoughts and views of the ten best new Doctor Who stories (2005 to the present). An epic length episode, but only half the story.
13b. Kat's turn. Kat's ten best new Doctor Who stories (2005 to the present). Plus, the ladies' thoughts on the future, with the Matt Smith era approaching.
Coming when it comes.

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.
24. The Web Of Fear. One story to rule them all. One story to guide them. And other stuff.
25. Fury From The Deep and The Wheel In Space. Victoria goes out on a (relative) high in our hosts' minds. But all thoughts of Victoria are sucked out the airlock by the arrival of Zoe Herriot.
Coming soon-ish - 25. The Dominators and The Mind Robber.
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.

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.
