All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Kansas City fans with KCPT 19 will get at least one more run through the 2006
Doctor Who episodes. New Earth through Rise Of The Cybermen will air in a
marathon on Saturday 2 January starting at 8PM CST (unfortunately the same night
that The End Of Time, Part Two premieres on BBC America). The remaining 8
episodes air weekly from 9 January at 10:30PM CST (1 episode per week).
San Jose/San Francisco fans - KTEH's website has a Doctor Who Confidential episode airing on 21 December at 10:45PM and Christmas Day at 11:45PM. It has a Doctor Who episode airing Christmas Day at 11PM. KTEH 54.1, KQED 9.2, and KQET 25.2 if this is happening. Episode title unknown.
» these were "phantom" entries and nothing was broadcast.
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 is becoming
available by January - a PBS station has put it on the schedule. (Maybe it
should be Series 4 part 1, as I doubt The Next Doctor onwards are included with
it yet.) 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 Series 4:
Idaho Public TV - starts 2 January
The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 3:

KERA 13 Dallas, TX (currently in first run)
Now, I am confident that there are more stations with rights to Series 3 and 4
than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me or scheduled the
show. Unlike with the Series 1 and 2 deals, 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.

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.

where West, Benjamin Elliott, Diann Walling, and DaveAC discussed The Prisoner.

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.
Current Episodes:
#83. Responding to i09, Defending RTD.
#84. The Wilderness Anniversary. Chip gives his thoughts on December 6, 1989,
the day the original Doctor Who series died (as a weekly TV show).
#85. Chekhov's Sonic Screwdriver. RTD's economy of information gets discussed in
this episode. The vast majority of concepts introduced in episodes come back
later in other forms. Very little throwaway. The good and the bad of this idea.
Staggering Stories
A wild, wandering podcast with Doctor Who and the other flavours of the moment
winding together roughly once every 2 weeks. The website's main focus is on
stories collected through the years.
Episode 60 - "Blathering In Dreamland". Fake Keith may be missing a lot in the
next batch of episodes - find out why! A new animated Doctor Who story aired, so
it has to be reviewed. Sarah Jane reviews. Feedback. Many other topics. And if
you plan to get feedback in for episode 61, you're already too late. Due to the
travel plans of members of the gang, episode 61 has already recorded, to be
released later.
Coming Later:
Episode 61 - Christmas Episode 2009.
At least one Christmas bonus involving at least one Staggering Stories cast
member and at least one Flashing Blade Podcast cast member. If you have twitter
or facebook and follow at least one of these guys, you already know what this
will be.
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.

the first Doctor Who TV spinoff - the 1981 pilot "K9 And Company: A Girl's Best

together. Episodes come out roughly once every two weeks. Each episode has a
special guest co-host.

still relating) have scrapped several plans for new episodes. But on Friday
November 13, our hosts use pluck and feedback to piece together a new episode.

Video (sometimes just audio) podcast looking at Doctor Who projects. Episodes

27. Pull To Open. Luke takes a look at the famous but somehow confusing sign on

these splits - if you have, say, iTunes, and it is set to download the newest

you can remember without knowing his name.
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
27. The Invasion and The Krotons. Mike has a new favorite story (The Invasion).
Thoughts on the stories and the animation.

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.

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". At least one of the hosts
claims that a new episode is in production. Expect it around Christmas.

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.
