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.
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

OETA Oklahoma
KLRU 18 Austin, TX

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.

Two Minute Time Lord
A bite-sized commentary and revew show. Host Chip's interest was rekindled by
the 2005 revival. He believes in balancing old fandom and new viewers, respect
for the past and breaking the rules. He tries to keep his pontifications to 120
seconds, because we're ALL in a hurry these days.

stories collected through the years.

Smith and her plucky marriage crashing friend the Doctor dominate the show. Fun
for all - or they'll set the Head of Pertwee on you.

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.

audio to eventually air on BBC Radio 7. And now, it is reviewed by the first

Doctor Who Review Today
call in number (724) 444-7444 talkshoe id 22756
Live editions Late Fridays 1AM EDT/10PM PDT/6AM BST every couple of weeks
Robert Carrie King reviews Doctor Who topics (DVDs and news, mostly) on this
Talkshoe program. Frequent cast member on the Cultdom Collective.
47. The Deadly Assassin and Sarah Jane: The Wedding Of Sarah Jane Smith. Opinion
is split, as one person likes The Deadly Assassin, and the other thinks it could
have been much better with some 2000s style tweaking.
The Tennantcast
Kelsey, Kari, Flossie, and friends get together to dish on the latest David
Tennant news.
25. "Rex Is Not Your Lawyer". Sadly the podcast notes are garbled and next to
impossible to read due to some computer code. And this one arrived too recently
for me to hear it yet. But the girls are back from vacation/illness, David
Tennant has a US pilot, and I was able to make out the words "climate change".
Post apocalyptic Tennantcast, perhaps?
The Wailing Fangirl
Samantha (Romana 2) explores Doctor Who and fandom in Australia, sometimes with
the aid of the ladies of the Gallifreyan Time Love Brigade. Frequent cast member
on CIA: Cultdom In Audio.
Current episode:
14. Sami And Kat's Top Ten Torchwood List. Torchwood gets a look at this time as
our ladies name their favorite stories. Running time - 3 hours.
Coming when it comes.
Reviews and commentaries of all of Steven Moffat's episodes so far.
The inevitable episodes looking at David Tennant's final stories.
A Podcast Of Impossible Things
Cardiff-based Doctor Who fans get together to discuss the latest Doctor Who and
do a full length commentary on new Doctor Who episodes.
Current episode:
Sarah Jane Adventures - The Wedding Of Sarah Jane Smith. Both episodes get a
commentary with some extra discussion at both ends of this episode, the first
new installment in a while.
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 episodes
24. The Web Of Fear. One story to rule them all. One story to guide them. And
other stuff.
25. Fury From The Deep and The Wheel In Space. Victoria goes out on a (relative)
high in our hosts' minds. But all thoughts of Victoria are sucked out the
airlock by the arrival of Zoe Herriot.
Coming soon-ish - 26. The Dominators and The Mind Robber.
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:
Winter Preview Podcast - Nicholas Briggs and the gang get us up to date on
upcoming Doctor Who audios, surprises, and more details on the Sherlock Holmes
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.
CIA - Cultdom In Audio
Live Talkshoe broadcasts
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 30659
West and other Doctor Who fans liked the live Doctor Who: Podshocks so much that
they wanted to keep talking afterwards. The resulting show covers Doctor Who,
anything else sci-fi related, and can go wildly off in all directions. Show
founder West has alerted Dave AC and West that he will return full time to
hosting duties with episode 101. Chats open 15 minutes before the scheduled
start time.
Current episode - 100. Dave AC and Ian retire as the regular guest hosts. Final
episodes of TV shows are discussed.

call in number (718) 664-9807
Jim Iaccino and Kenn Gold look at the latest SciFi broadcasts in the US, with
emphasis on fitting in Doctor Who, Dollhouse, Smallville, Supernatural, Fringe,
Torchwood, and the other big scifi shows of the moment. Everything is based on
