THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - September 25, 2002
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 5, No 39
Welcome to the weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts around the world.
Not much to report this week. As mentioned in a late update last Thursday, TPT (KTCA) 2 St. Paul, MN is dropping Doctor Who from its schedule following the September 28th broadcast of Logopolis part 4. TPT's current run of Doctor Who began in Spring 1999, and they have aired all of the Tom Baker stories.
Also, in a late update last week, WQED/WQEX 13,16 Pittsburgh, PA aired both episodes of the story Black Orchid last Saturday night at Midnight due to technical problems when they tried to air the story several months ago. Doctor Who was going to be pre-empted that night, so there was no disruption to the regular schedule.
Best wishes for Doctor Who fans near the Gulf Of Mexico who are currently in the path of Tropical Storm Isidore. NOAA weather has a picture of the current projected storm path at . If that link goes out of date, should help anyone concerned about that storm find more information. Hopefully this storm will just be a rainmaker and help relieve drought conditions in much of the Eastern US. Crossing fingers. The current storm path shows Isidore hitting Louisiana and Mississippi as a Tropical Storm or weak hurricane before heading inland and hopefully turning into a regular storm. Doctor Who affiliates in the current estimated path - probably long after the dangerous aspects of the storm are gone - are WCET 48 Cincinnati, OH, MPT Maryland, WQED/WQEX 13,16 Pittsburgh, PA, WYBE 35 Philadelphia, PA, WCNY 24 Syracuse, NY, and NHPTV New Hampshire.
While I try to keep the column up to day, I do sometimes miss late changes to schedules. If you see TWIDW's information getting out of synch with what your local station is actually airing, let me know ASAP.

Joey Reynolds' weekly radio show for sci-fi news and interviews, broadcast live over the internet on all 3 websites listed above. Doctor Who news usually discussed during the broadcast. This week - Lars Pearson was the originally scheduled guest, talking about I Who 3. However, the ongoing story of the Farscape cancellation has resulted in a schedule change. Joey Reynolds will speak live for the whole hour with David Kemper, executive producer of Farscape, with phone lines open to callers - (561) 998-5470. David Kemper was a last minute guest for the second half of last week's program as well. Lars Pearson's appearance has been rescheduled for November 22nd, and is likely to be part of an hour celebrating Doctor Who's 39th anniversary.

Suggestion to Homechoice - you have been offering the same 3 Doctor Who stories for months now. Maybe you could offer some different stories now, or at least increase the selection. I suspect most interested subscribers have seen these stories by now. Multiple times. One of the photos you've used to advertise Doctor Who is from Revenge of the Cybermen, which if we believe your website - you haven't offered to your subscribers yet. And it's Robot, not "Robots".
