THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - April 26, 2002
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 5, No 17
Slightly experimental column this week (ie: I was short on time again). Very, very short descriptions of the stories - some of which might actually be related to what is airing this week. Let's see how it works.
Additions and corrections are welcome at bfelliott@... , , bfelliott3 on AIM , or thebfe on Yahoo Messenger. And now, the listings:


Death Comes To Time
Episode 5B Death Comes To Time, pt 2 of 3 now online
Realplayer. The conclusion goes online 3 May.
WSBR AM740 West Palm Beach, FL
Fri 11PM EDT Interstellar Transmissions
Guest - Anime Voice artist Steve Bennett. Note - next week, Interstellar Transmissions moves to 7PM EDT/6PM CDT. WWNN AM1470 Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, FL will be the new station airing it, with a simulcast on WBYU AM1450 New Orleans, LA. This show, hosted by Joey Reynolds and frequently having Doctor Who content, can be heard with Windows Media Player. Use the link from to a live webstream, or if that is down use the link from WSBR's website. I believe WBYU has a webstream (will have to check), so there should still be two online places to hear the show come next week.
BCB Radio 96.7FM Bradford, UK
The Who Review, which has been a monthly feature on BCB for years, is not mentioned on the new online schedule, and another show has taken Thursday nights where Who has been airing. It looks like they don't have their full schedule online yet, so we do not yet know if the show is moving or canceled.
