This Week In Doctor Who PBS and Podcasts
October 10/17, 2009 - Vol 1, No 39
All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
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 stations.
Note - this is a 2 week edition of This Week In Doctor Who. The column returns
on the 24th.
If you're a PBS station airing Doctor Who and I don't have you listed - contact
me. If you're watching Doctor Who on a PBS station that's not on this list -
contact me AND tell me the day, time, and episode that aired so I can track
things down (some stations have websites where schedule information is -
The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 3:
WXXI 21 Rochester, NY
WTTW 11 Chicago, IL (currently in first run)
WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI
WILL 12 Urbana, IL
WTVP 47 Peoria, IL
Iowa Public TV
Idaho Public TV
Wisconsin Public TV
Milwaukee Public TV
KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT
OETA Oklahoma
KLRU 18 Austin, TX
Alaska Public TV
WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY
KERA 13 Dallas, TX (currently in first run)
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 or scheduled the show.
Unlike previous years, we are in the dark till a station comes forward or new
Who appears in their schedules.
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. American Public TV is no longer offering Series 1 - I do not know if
BBC Worldwide Americas will offer those stations to public TV stations now or
2 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor Who run
(1963-1989), but not New Who. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing Peter Davison
episodes. WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes.

planning to kill the winner and use the winner's body as an example of the evils

Coming Soon:
Episode 56 - "We Always Miss The News" - Due out sometime this weekend, the
latest Staggering Stories was recorded on Monday night, when they knew that the
new Doctor Who logo was coming Tuesday, but had no clue what it looked like.
Journey back to the simpler time of last Monday, when life was very different.
The Flashing Blade Podcast
Tony Gallichan. Jo! One man, one woman. One with decades of Doctor Who fan
experience. Another who turns on the show when it airs on TV. One has lots of
cats. Another can say the word "news" in various amusing ways. Together they
unite for a weekly look into the worlds of Doctor Who, hoping to make a TV show
for the brain. Can you get feedback in on their latest episode before they
record their next one - good luck with that.
Current episode:
18. Full Circle. Jo! has a real life! This may be bad news for her ability to
review stories - this time they just got through Full Circle, with a Big Finish
audio waiting for later. Tony and Jo! also have an idea for reviewing the Sarah
Jane Adventures - kid-submitted reviews. (Two minute time lord rips his hair out
as everybody seemed to ignore a similar podcasting idea of his months ago.) The
first episode that has reached the drinking age in the UK.
Coming Soon:
Episode 19, recorded before most of this week's craziness.
Episode 20, which will probably get recorded in a few days, and be well aware of
the week's craziness. In the USA, this would be the episode who is counting the
days till it turns 21, can ditch the fake ID, and drink alcohol legally.
Bridging The Rift
Katrina (Radio Free Skaro) and Nat bring the worlds of Doctor Who fandom,
Torchwood fandom, Sarah Jane Adventures fandom, K9 fandom, and other areas

10. Tim Drury, Living In Second Life. Guest panelist Tim Drury guides Katrina
and Nat through the past and present of Second Life, and the Doctor
Who/Torchwood fan communities that exist therein. Also, feedback on previous
Coming Soon - Episode 11. It just hadn't come out at publication time.
I don't have time to recheck right now, but Warren of Radio Free Skaro revealed
that he is on either episode 11 or 12 of Bridging The Rift.

Bigger On The Inside
Mike and Dan decide to do their own podcast exploring each Doctor Who story in
broadcast order. It is a very different style from Jonathan's. Again - can they
pull it off? Part of the Earth-2 family of podcasts. Warning - explicit language
(swearing). If your headphones leak any sound at all - do not listen at work.
Current episode - 23. The Ice Warriors and Enemy Of The World. Dan and Mike have
a pretty good time with both stories, even with a bunch of episodes still
Coming eventually - 24. The Web Of Fear. One story to rule them all. One story
to guide them. And other stuff.
Hoo On Who
Fan reviews of recent Doctor Who DVDs by David Hooie, frequently with a guest
Current episode:
#14. The Caves Of Androzani. Well, eventually David reviews The Caves Of
Androzani. First he goes a bit off format to have an excellent interview with
podcaster/radio host Steve Glosson, host of SHoE, Geek Out Loud, and the Big
Honkin' Show. Also, David is planning a get together with listeners at Gallifrey
21. Now, if I'm right about the hot tub he wants to meet at, he may have to
relocate the meeting to the somewhat cooler pool just a few feet away - my
memory is that the hot one is rather small. Rest assured, there is a detailed
review of The Caves Of Androzani in the episode.
The Cloister Room
Tom Dickinson begins a solo Doctor Who podcast effort with short shows on short
subject that get to the point, bulldoze through the point, back up to ground the
point down some more, then flee the scene before the police arrive.
Current episode - 4. Requiem For A Drama. Tom returns after 4 weeks away and
looks at shows that are cancelled before their time. Is it worth investing in a
show that might soon (or has already) been cancelled. Tom's view is similar to
mine (yes, it is worth it), but you're downloading Tom's show for his opinions
on this.
Tim's Take On ...
Tim Drury's podcast on various issues. Available on iTunes.
The Big Finish Podcast
Big Finish podcasts at least once a month to discuss their Doctor Who and other
projects (Sapphire and Steel, Stargate (!), Dark Shadows, Bernice Summerfield,
Current episode - September podcast. The show gets a bit back to normal, with a
lack of celebrity guests. Upcoming news is announced. Thoughts are had. And I'm
sure a mug of tea was drunk somewhere. The Missing Season of Colin Baker stories
is about to hit. Judge Dredd audios are returning, along with the shocking
reason why they went away in the first place. These and other twists are covered
in the September Big Finish podcast.
Tachyon TV
Irregular and irreverant podcast looking at the world of Doctor Who with a
funhouse mirror and coming out the other side holding a plush toy that wasn't
really the one you wanted but you'll keep it anyway because you can give it to
your girlfriend to impress her. It's that kind of show.
Current segment - a short appeal by "Rula Lenska".
MMM Commentaries/Fantragic
Roving Australian podcasting gang, including Trevor from the DWO Whocast.
Commentaries on Doctor Who episodes, Star Wars films, some Stargate stuff, and
others. The Frantragic episodes look at Doctor Who and other sci-fi news.
Fantragic episodes are on a different iTunes feed from MMM Commentary episodes.
Current Doctor Who episode - Journey's End. If the description in the iTunes tag
is anything to go by, this running commentary on the Doctor Who Series 4 finale
will not have a happy ending.
