THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - April 20, 2001
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 4, No 16
The usual episode descriptions will return in the next column. Just a couple of quick notes for this edition.
WYBE 35 in Philadelphia got its episodes confused yet again last week, rerunning the second half of The Five Doctors in the Saturday 11PM time period where the second half of Warriors of the Deep was scheduled. Fortunately, with the Saturday 5:30PM rerun, you should be able to see the end of Warriors tomorrow. Hopefully.
Maryland Public Television is going back to the first Doctor Who story this weekend, having aired all the available stories over the past 2 3/4 years. The last time MPT went back to the beginning, I stayed up and watched the first episode. The inspiration to create this column occurred during that broadcast. Still, we won't hold that against MPT, will we?
