THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - May 28th, 1999 - Memorial Day Weekend Edition
By Benjamin F. Elliott
May 28th, 1999 - Memorial Day Weekend Edition
Guest Editor's Note: Due to a mishap in communications with the other guest editor of The "This Week in Doctor Who" column and myself and the ISP's news/mail server playing up again, I was unfotunately not able to complete a suitable to print column for this week in time. I assure you that this will be the only week where anything like this will happen. As there was not much news this week, I think I shall proceed to a bare bones version of this column. Please bear with me as this was edited together at the last moment.

Guest Editor's Note: If HBO-OLE 2 is showing the Doctor Who TV Movie, I did not have time to check. I promise to find out for next whether or not HBO-OLE 2 will air for next week.

That's it for this week's rough version of the column. Until next week, when I'll be better prepared for certain mishpas, take care.
