For some of you reading This Week In Doctor Who, change is coming. Outpost
Gallifrey is completely retiring its News Page and Doctor Who Forum. This column
has been on the news page at for some
time. If you read the column there, or on Outpost Gallifrey's RSS feed, then
your final edition on these sources comes out Saturday July 25 (Outpost
Gallifrey closes the news and forums on July 31st, with the site focusing
exclusively on the Gallifrey conventions in LA each February).
Alternate sources for This Week In Doctor Who:
1) Subscribe to the Yahoo Group for This Week In Doctor Who (as noted at the top
of the column).
2) Read the Yahoo Group on the web without subscribing.
3) Set up the RSS feed (as noted at the top of the column) so you can read new
4) Go to one of these newsgroups - rec.arts.drwho and rec.arts.drwho.moderated .
It will appear around the same time as the Yahoo Group posting.
5) - This Week In Doctor Who has
a new agreement with the Gallifreyan Embassy site supplying the column as one of
their blogs. I expect there will be some tweaking in future weeks, and the link
may change.
6) Other web mirrors may go up in the near future. The final number of mirrors
is yet to be determined.
This Week In Doctor Who has been proud to be associated with Outpost Gallifrey
in one form or another since July 1998 when the column began. The column will
stay on the OG News Page till the end in late July.
For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office and C21 Media .
