BBC One - Smith And Jones (Doctor Who Series 3 Premiere!)
The 3rd Series premiere on BBC One (not counting The Runaway Bride at Christmas) will be on the 31st of March, it seems. Just a month away. Here's hoping for a great set of episodes that does fantastic in the UK and airs across the world - quickly.
Hopefully US Doctor Who fans are paying attention, as we're entering a very busy period. BBC America has its final repeats of Series One (the Christopher Eccleston episodes) for now (including a marathon on Saturday) - Doctor Who is being rested and replaced by Robin Hood. Meanwhile, as of March the public TV stations that have bought Doctor Who Series One can begin to air them - the first unedited free TV broadcasts of new Who in the US. Here is the current list of 40 stations arranged by the premiere dates for the Doctor.

For now, public TV stations can only buy Series One. The better it does on the stations that bought it, the more likely fans will get to see more Who on public TV stations.
To readers outside the US - the broadcast public TV stations have much more freedom in their schedules than the major broadcast network affiliates ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW), and their lineups vary much more from place to place. Some cities have multiple public TV stations due to overlaps and different educational organizations setting up stations in the same area. Doctor Who is not part of the PBS schedule, it is an optional extra purchase from a syndicator, so stations are choosing to run it rather than just having a network send it to them. This is how most Americans saw Doctor Who from the 1970s to 1990s (except for the TV Movie on FOX). Almost anyone can see at least one public TV station, and while they don't have the audience of ABC, CBS, NBC, or FOX, they can reach many people that cable networks like SciFi or BBC America will not get. This Week In Doctor Who began with the idea that it would be nice to know which public TV stations are airing Doctor Who when and which episodes are running. I'm delighted that the Doctor is back on at least some of these stations and hope the public TV run is a big success.

If that's not enough to support the public TV showing of Doctor Who - SciFi cuts most of the episodes to meet the timeslot. BBC America does a bad edit of the last few seconds of each episode to erase any sign of the Next Time trailer, then remakes the closing credits their own way. Both put lots of annoying preview pictures and information in the bottom left section of the screen at times when you'd rather be seeing the story. They put Doctor Who ads on screen during other shows when you'd rather be watching those shows. Full credit to SciFi and BBC America for airing Doctor Who, and they treat it as well as their most popular shows. But like most TV networks these days, they treat all their shows pretty poorly.

The public TV stations will be airing the show uncut (some of them with Doctor Who Confidential airing afterwards). When not in pledge season, episodes will be airing straight through with no commercial interruptions. While some public TV stations are beginning the disgusting practice of putting promos for other shows on screen during a program, they are still much more restrained than SciFi and BBC America. Many of the public TV stations are not doing this and should get thanked for avoiding the practice.
The public TV run of the show will be the nicest the new Doctor Who will look in the US short of buying the DVDs. If one of your stations is airing the show, this is the time to get friends and family who haven't tried the new series yet to tune in.
David Thiel, Program Director of WILL-TV in Urbana, IL, has offered some advice "... for dealing with Your Friendly Local Public Television Station and helping to make the series a success on American broadcast TV:

  1. Encourage others to watch the show. (Especially those with Neilsen diaries. ;) : Try it out on people who either have not been previously exposed to "Who," or who may have been turned off by the original show. I like to say that this is not your father's "Doctor Who."
  2. If you notice your local station conducting pledge breaks around the series, be sure to make a generous donation and let them know that your contribution is in support of it. Most importantly, fulfill that pledge when the envelope arrives in the mail (or pay by credit card in the first place). Programmers such as myself love it not only when the phones ring in the studio, but when we learn that a given series has a high rate of fulfillment. And word gets around when a show is a proven success at pledge time.
  3. If you contact your local station about airing the show, be polite. Don't harange, threaten or insult. Keep in mind that the person on the other end of the line is probably a pretty good Joe or Jane. Heck, it might even be me. Most if not all of us really want to please as many people as possible, knowing fully well that we have neither the airtime nor acquisition budget to please everyone.
  4. Don't get hung up on the original series. There was a reluctance for some in the PTV community to get involved with new "Who" out of concern it would lead to renewed pressure to repurhcase several hundred half-hours of Tom Baker, etc. Even though I'm sure that no one here would be guilty of such things, in years past certain elements of fandom have gained a reputation for behaving entitled to their local station running "Who" in perpetuity, even though they themselves were no longer watching or supporting it.
BBC Kids - the week of 12 to 16 March sees the 10PM Eastern slot pre-empted for Beauty and The Geek UK and the 2AM Eastern slot pre-empted by movies, with Doctor Who only at 5 or 5:30AM. Doctor Who returns to its normal time periods on 19 March.
