THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - November 2, 2001
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 4, No 44
Due to production difficulties this week, the column is a bit on the thin side. Look for the story descriptions to return next week.

Additions and corrections are welcome at bfelliott@... , bfelliott@... , bfelliott3 on AOL IM , or thebfe on Yahoo! Messenger. And now, the listings:

UK Gold
Sat 10-11AM GMT The Awakening movie
Sun 9:10-11AM GMT Frontios movie
BBC Prime
Late Fri 12:30AM, Sat 4PM CET The Twin Dilemma ep 3 of 4
Sat 4:25PM, Late Sun 12:30AM CET The Twin Dilemma ep 4 of 4
Wed Noon CET Attack of the Cybermen ep 1 of 2 (or 4)
Thu Noon CET Attack of the Cybermen ep 2 of 2 (or 4)
When BBC Prime aired Resurrection of the Daleks, they used the 45 minute episode version of that story. While Attack of the Cybermen and all season 22 stories also were made in the 45 minute episode format, their website currently indicates they are using the 25 minute episode versions.
Sun 7AM, Late Sun 1AM AEDT Kinda all 4 eps
Mon 11:30PM AEDT The Awakening ep 2 of 2
Tue-Fri 11:30PM AEDT Frontios eps 1 - 4 of 4
BBC Kids (actual website address still unclear; ??)
Channel Premieres Monday, Nov 5. So does Doctor Who!
Mon-Fri 7:30PM EST (4:30PM PST) - TBA
Mon-Fri 10:30PM EST (7:30PM PST) - TBA
Late Mon-Late Fri 2AM EST (11PM PST) - TBA
Late Mon-Late Fri 4AM EST (1AM PST) - TBA

Since there does not seem to be an active BBC Kids website up and running at press time, and since no TV listings for BBC Kids will say which episodes are airing, one can only speculate as to which episodes will air. Logical starting places for episode packages would be An Unearthly Child, Spearhead From Space, Robot, The Ribos Operation, or Castrovalva. One can speculate that either the same episode will air four times each weeknight or that two episodes will be presented, each airing twice. Due to the lack of useful information, the only way to extrapolate a schedule will be for someone in Canada who has BBC Kids to watch ALL 4 airings on Monday and e-mail me with the news on which episode or episodes aired.

ยป The following week confirmed the channel commenced with Robot.
NHPTV New Hampshire 11,49,52
Late Sat Mid EST State of Decay eps 3+4 of 4

MPT Maryland 22,28,31,36,62,67
Late Sat 12:15AM EST Terror of the Autons movie
Almost certainly the color-restored version. BTW, MPT pulled a surprise on viewers last week. After airing all of Inferno in the regular time slot, they reran all of The Ambassadors of Death, which had aired incomplete two weeks ago. Alas, there was no advance notice of this, so unless you stayed up all night, you probably missed the special Ambassadors Of Death rerun.
