This Week In Doctor Who - September 14, 2001

THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - September 14, 2001
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 4, No 37
It has been a long and painful week around the world. The terrorists who struck at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon stunned us all - here in America, Canada, the UK, and seemingly everywhere else. In most parts of the world, this weekend's edition of This Week In Doctor Who is going out on the 14th, a day of Prayer and Remembrance.

One of the main reasons for television and movies is that they can offer an escape from reality, a respite from the ongoing horror and the consequences that will ensue. Doctor Who is certainly a good choice when you need to take a little break from reality, before getting active again. So TWIDW is still being published this weekend - albeit without story descriptions. Due to fluctuating events, some of the broadcasts mentioned here may well be postponed or canceled, but some will air.

If you live in an area without Doctor Who on television, you might want to curl up with one of the novels, or see on of the videos or DVDs. (Spearhead From Space came out on DVD in Australia on the 10th, The Five Doctors, The Robots of Death, and Spearhead From Space came out on DVD in the US & Canada on the 11th.) You might even want to unwind with something other than Doctor Who. But save out a little time this weekend to relax and recharge yourself. We all need the break.
