THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - May 29, 2002
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 5, No 22
Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who on Television. A quiet week, but a
few matters to bring up.
South America - Still need help from someone who has Uniseries
down there. What Doctor Who episodes are they
USA - The 1996 Doctor Who Movie (starring Paul McGann) is airing on the
Sci-Fi Channel http://www.scifi.com/
on Sunday, June 30 at 5PM Eastern. Use
the schedulebot to adjust for local time.
RADIO - On May 24th, the Interstellar Transmissions radio show
devoted its broadcast to
remembering John Nathan-Turner, longtime producer of Doctor Who. It was a
fond farewell to the final and longest lasting producer from the show's
original 26 year TV run. If you missed the show, I have good news. A
"director's cut" of the broadcast, including a tribute by Dan Harris which
there was not time to include, is now available to listen to in MP3 format
USA - The June pledge drives are underway in much of the US. Your station
might start Doctor Who late, air extra Doctor Who programming, or pre-empt
it all together. All times approximate for stations in pledge mode.
