Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 27th November 1998:
WXEL West Palm Beach, Florida - channel 42
Sunday at 2PM - Terror of the Autons - all 4 recolored episodes
Sunday at ?PM - The Dæmons - all 5 recolored episodes

From 2 to 7PM, WXEL airs two restored Pertwee stories and some pledge drives. Remember, if you can watch this channel, that WXEL has not agreed to resume airing the series on a regular basis. They want to see how the pledge drive goes. If the marathon earns lots of pledge money and if WXEL actually receives the money, then they might consider resuming the series. But, whatever happens, Doctor Who will have at least one more afternoon in the South Florida sun.
