THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO - February 19/21, 2003
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Vol 6, No 8
Welcome to a somewhat delayed edition of This Week In Doctor Who. It figures. If ever you are running behind schedule and don't back up your data, your computer's power strip will choose that moment to fail for the first time to back up the computer power through a split second power loss, and the data will disappear into the ether, like the Black Guardian when you try to get a straight answer to why he wears a bird on his head.
While I try to keep the column up to date, 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.
Additions and corrections are welcome at , bfelliott@... , bfelliott3 on AOL IM, or thebfe on Yahoo Messenger. And now, the listings:


BBC Radio 4
92-95FM (UK), 198LW (UK and Europe), Live link from website worldwide
Sat 10:30AM GMT My Life As A Dalek 30 minutes
(11:30AM CET, 5:30AM EST, 2:30AM PST, 9:30PM AEDT - adjust for local time)

Radio 4 takes an affectionate look back at the Daleks, the longest lasting, best known villains from Doctor Who. Interviews with the men and women who brought the galaxy's most memorable pepperpots to life. No rerun scheduled as of this writing. Radio 4 archives many of its radio programs for a week after broadcast, and it is likely that this show will be archived, but that has not been confirmed. Sneak preview interview with John Scott 'Everydalek' Martin at .
Fri 7PM EST Interstellar Transmissions
WWNN AM1470 Pompano Beach/Boca Raton, FL (Miami/West Palm Beach, FL)
Joey Reynolds' weekly radio show for sci-fi news and interviews, which can be heard online worldwide. Doctor Who news usually discussed during the show.
Business Talk Radio Network
Late Sun/Early Mon 2-6AM EST (11PM-3AM PST) Sci-Fi Overdrive
Live audio link at Business Talk website - requires Windows Media Player. Joey Donovan (aka Joey Reynolds) hosts a national talk show based on Interstellar Transmissions, syndicated by the Business Talk Radio network. No guest list yet. Official description - "Our innagural show. Just opening the house and waiting for the cable guy." Joey was looking for possible guests at the Gallifrey convention, so I would think there's a good chance of Who guests this week, maybe. I'll put a current list of stations scheduled to air the show at the end of this week's column. Due to the number of stations, I will not be listing the stations every week, but hope to have a link to a station list.
