Reports from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Thursday 23rd July 1998:
Ken Patterson has details on Doctor Who on KTEH in San Jose, California. KTEH seems to be pulling out all the stops for the fans this August. August 2nd is a triple bill with The King's Demons, I Was A Doctor Who Monster!, and a movie with Carole Ann Ford (Susan) in it. August 9th will have an episodic version of The Five Doctors. (I don't want to know how they did that.) August 16th will have a prime time Who broadcast of The Curse of Fenric Extended, in addition to the regular episodes. If only your station aired Who at an earlier hour ...

Friday 7th August 1998:
KTEH 54 in San Jose, California offers viewers something odd this weekend. It's not the original version of The Five Doctors. It's not the special restored, rearranged, and extended version. It's a version divided up into 4 episodes like a regular story. This rendition begins at 11:10PM (time approximate after other pledge specials) and will run until it's finished. Whoever thought pill bugs could be dangerous?
