This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere
February 14, 2009 - Vol 1, No 7
The Guide to North and South American Doctor Who TV Listings
by Benjamin F. Elliott
USA - Doctor Who - Series 3 (The Runaway Bride and the 13 episode 2007 series with Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones) are now distributed to Public TV stations by BBC Worldwide Americas, not American Public TV. Series 4 also seems to be available to buy - start date for Series 4 on Public TV stations is unknown. BBC Worldwide Americas also distributes classic Doctor Who to the stations that air it. KUED 7 Salt Lake City UT is now on the list of stations:
The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 3:
WXXI 21 Rochester, NY (already running)
WTTW 11 Chicago, IL (start date unknown)
WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI (already running)
WILL 12 Urbana, IL (already running)
WTVP 47 Peoria, IL (starts tonight, February 14)
Iowa Public TV (already running)
Idaho Public TV (already running)
Milwaukee Public TV (already running)
KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT (starts April 18)
Now, I am confident that there are more stations with rights to
Series 3 than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me.
Somehow I doubt that BBC Worldwide Americas is going to send out a
note with the stations who bought in like American Public TV did,
leaving us in the dark till a station comes forward or it appears in
their schedules.
Series 1 is currently available to public TV stations in an American
Public TV package until February 28, 2009. American Public TV is not
re-issuing Series 1, so those episodes will be unavailable to public
TV stations after the aforementioned date unless/until BBC Worldwide
Americas decides to offer them. Series 2 is currently available to
public TV stations in an American Public TV package until March 31,
2010. For the Series 1 and 2 packages, stations have bought the
rights to cycle through the episodes 4 times. They are not required
to do so.
As we approach the end of the rights, several stations are putting Doctor Who back on the air briefly to burn off Series 1 episodes while they can. NET Nebraska has been airing 3 episodes on Sunday afternoons all January long, and will end with one episode on Sunday February 1. WQLN 54 Erie, PA has been using up Series 1 late Fridays for a while and should finish just before the rights run out. WMFE 24 Orlando, FL is airing 3 episodes on Sunday nights (4 epsisodes on February 22 to finish). 2 episodes on KOCE Huntington/Orange County, CA most Saturdays. There is no evidence that any of these mentioned stations have bought Series 2 or will buy future series of Doctor Who at this time - consider this their final farewells.
Nine stations have used all their rights to the Series 1 package - WLVT 39 Allentown, PA, WJCT 7 Jacksonville, FL, WILL 12 Urbana, IL, Iowa Public TV, KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT, Idaho Public TV, Wisconsin Public TV, KLRU 18 Austin, TX, and KVPT 18 Fresno, CA. OETA Oklahoma has used half of their 4th and final cycle of Series 1.
3 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor
Who run (1963-1989). Iowa Public TV is currently airing both New Who
Series 3 and Sylvester McCoy episodes. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing
Tom Baker episodes while their new Who rights are about to expire.
WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes but apparently does
not have New Who Series rights.
In the USA, all the full power TV stations are currently due to turn
off their analog transmitters at 11:59PM on June 12*, 2009 and go
strictly to digital broadcasting. This is the new date passed by
Congress and signed by the President. Roughly 200 stations have
previously turned off their analog signals and at least 368 more will
turn off analog on February 17th. Some additional stations will turn
off during the 90 days before June 12. And with a shortage of parts,
analog stations that have transmitter failures probably will not be
repaired. Cable customers will not notice the change. Satellite
customers who get their local channels on the satellite service will
not notice the change. If your TV gets local stations over the air
and *does* have a digital tuner built in or as a set top box, you are
fine but will want to do a new scan whenever stations in your area
turn off analog, as the level of overlapping station interference
will decrease and many stations will be moving to new broadcast
frequencies to be received better. If a TV does not have a digital
tuner or a box, it will only be able to get some low power stations
that have chosen to stay analog once this transition is complete.
*The major reason for the delay (the percentage of people who do not
have digital tuners set up for various reasons) is unlikely to be
resolved to Congress' satisfaction by June. It is entirely possible
that the end of full power analog TV in the USA will be delayed again
before this is finished.

Public TV Premiere Run:
I have tried to get the correct digital switch day for each of these
stations. There has been a lot of conflicting information, and
sometimes I have had to guess. If you are watching these stations
over the air instead of via cable or satellite provided locals, your
best bet is to make sure you have a digital tuner NOW (built into
your TV, VCR, DVR, DVDR, etc or as a set-top box).

Series 1 - 4th Cycle:
On 7 February, Aliens of London and World War Three aired, with The Unquiet Dead skipped. Future Saturdays still have 90 minutes of KOCE favorites that are hopefully Doctor Who broadcasts. 3 Saturdays and 6 slots with 8 episodes to go. So I'm going to make a guess:
Saturday 11:30PM? PST 1-06 Dalek
Late Saturday 12:15AM? PST 1-07 The Long Game or 1-08 Father's Day

Not bothering guessing what will happen on the 21st till we get through the 14th.
ยป it was reported the following week that The Long Game and Father's Day aired.

Saturday 7PM and Midnight PST "2 Tom Baker episodes"
KBTC is reportedly airing episodes out of order with a bit of
confusion, so we cannot be sure which ones are airing. They are
probably from Tom Baker's last season. Looking forward to a reliable
schedule as soon as we have it again.
21 February 7PM and Midnight PST "2 Tom Baker episodes"
28 February 7PM and Midnight PST "2 Tom Baker episodes"
KBTC/KCKA has the right to air Series 1 another 3 times before
February 28, 2009, which they are not going to use. Looks like KBTC
will join WHRO in only having Classic Who rights.
Thanks for reading. Until next week, take care.
