Milwaukee Public TV has the right to air Series 28 one more time before March 31, 2010. MPTV has aired Series 29 twice.

Saturday 20th March 2010:
Milwaukee Public TV's pledge night on the 13th also had some complications. Two showings of The Making Of Star Wars in Concert was added to the schedule at the last minute, moving programs around. The Doctor Who pledge night shifted from a 9:30PM start to a 10PM start. The first showing of Planet of the Ood started at 10:07PM. The expected Doctor Who Confidential of Oods and Ends did fit in the programming block. A same night repeat of Planet of the Ood started at 11:38PM. Eagle eyed viewers of the repeat noticed an emergency substitution - Doctor Who Confidential episode The Valient Quest aired after Planet of the Ood the second time. MPTV was trying to start their 1AM show on time, and The Valient Quest was a shorter installment, allowing them to get back on track. Due to airing Planet of the Ood twice, MPTV plans to skip it in the 4th and final run through this package of episodes, assuming they air the package 4 times before it expires.
