Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who on TV.
Thanks to those who gave their kind reactions to the April Fools special edition of this column on Monday. Eerily enough, some of those fake web links work. If you didn't see it, and are curious, you can find it online at .
Also, effective late last weekend, This Week In Doctor Who once again began to appear on the Outpost Gallifrey website . The week I began writing the column, Siobahn Morgan asked if it could be put on her Doctor Who Home Page and Shaun Lyon asked for Outpost Gallifrey . I am delighted to have This Week back on the Outpost Gallifrey site after just under a year's absence. Shaun has some new computer programming technique that I don't understand which now makes it possible to update the column fast, so he has the time to include it again.
This Week In Doctor Who is still on Siobahn's stie, and also on the Jason Fraser's Varos Doctor Who page , the best Australian fan site out there, along with , run by Roger Clark. And the Yahoo Group. And on rec.arts.drwho . So you no longer have any excuses to claim you can't find it.
Additions and corrections are welcome at , bfelliott@... , bfelliott 3 on AIM, or thebfe on Yahoo Messenger. And now, the listings:


Death Comes To Time
Episode 4B No Child Of Earth, pt 2 of 3 now online
Episode 4C goes online 12 April. Use some version of Realplayer to watch or listen. Starring Sylvester McCoy as the 7th Doctor.
WSBR AM740 West Palm Beach, FL
Fri 11PM EST Interstellar Transmissions
The link from Interstellar Transmissions' site to the web stream uses Windows Media Player. I don't know if the link from WSBR's web site uses Media Player or Real Player. This week's guest - TJ Lubinsky (Whosaver). Readers of this column will remember TJ for spearheading Doctor Who's relaunch on WQED/WQEX Pittsburgh, his sadly unsuccessful attempts at launching a national feed of Doctor Who for PBS stations in 1998, the success of the National Doctor Who Night pledge special in 2000, and his restoration work on the Da Silva extras for the Tom Baker DVDs. A little before this column's time, he also was responsible for Planet of the Daleks episode 3 and Invasion of the Dinosaurs episode 1 finally becoming available for broadcast in the US, along with restored versions of The War Machines, Doctor Who and the Silurians, Terror of the Autons, and The Dæmons, plus the extended video versions of The Five Doctors and The Curse of Fenric. The general public will remember TJ for his incredibly successful Doo Wop specials on PBS, and the recent syndication of Ed Sullivan and Red Skelton to PBS stations. This being a sci-fi show, talk will probably focus on TJ's work in the Doctor Who area.


Channel 4
Tue 1:45-3:15PM BST Dr. Who And The Daleks 1965 theatrical movie
Peter Cushing stars as Dr. Who in a colour movie remake of the original Dalek story during this special matinee broadcast. The Welsh version of Channel 4 - S4C - frequently reruns much of Channel 4's programming within a week of the Channel 4 screening, so people with S4C should keep an eye out for news about this film rerunning.
