This Week In Doctor Who
August 29, 2009 - Vol 12, No 33
The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide since 1998.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
In a slight reorganization of the column, all of the Doctor Who TV broadcasts except for the US public TV stations will now be in this section. The section formerly known as Western Hemisphere is now PBS and Podcasts, covering the public TV stations and the Doctor Who universe podcasts. Spinoffs still has Sarah Jane, will have K9, and for people getting this as 4 segments it will list the stations with Doctor Who rights that aren't airing the show right now. Torchwood This Week is unchanged.
Belgium - LeDeux has finally scheduled Series 4 of Doctor Who. Episodes premiere late Saturday afternoons around 4:55PM CET starting 29 August. Expect repeats during the week, but we don't have days and times yet.
SPAIN - SciFi Channel Spain will finally premiere Series 3 of Doctor Who to that country's viewing public on Monday 7 September at 10:20PM. Episodes air 3 times a week. Sadly, The Runaway Bride will air in an edited 45 minute version.
USA - BBC America is shaking up their schedule significantly in September. In a move similar to SciFi/Syfy US' "Daytime Rotation", a weekday multi-hour block of shows will now cover a single program each day, flipping around through BBC America's back catalogue of programming. Most days this block will be 6 hours long and run from 11AM to 5PM Eastern (8AM to 2PM Pacific). In September the block is focused on Dramas and Comedies with just a couple days of reality programming. Doctor Who marathons air on Tuesday September 8 and Tuesday September 29. Two days go to Torchwood marathons. I am not going to cover BBC America's rotation here, but in the early weeks fans of Hotel Babylon, MI-5, Cracker, Primeval, Robin Hood, Coupling, and Catherine Tate are likely to be pretty happy.
USA - In addition to the weekday shakeup, BBC America has also scheduled a Doctor Who marathon for Sunday 13 September. This marathon appears to be an effort to promot the DVD release of the Doctor Who story "The Next Doctor", which finally reaches stores in the US and Canada on Tuesday 15 September. This marathon runs from 6:30AM to 8PM Eastern (3:30AM to 5PM Pacific). This 13 and a half hour marathon is focused on the more popular multi-part stories from 2007 and 2008 plus the specials BBC America has aired this year. The full listings are below, but there are couple of highlights for fans with the station.
-3PM ET/Noon PT - The Stolen Earth and Journey's End as a 2 1/2 hour movie. This is significant because it means that BBC America will be airing the full length version of Journey's End for the first time. However, if these air as a movie, the previously on segment and opening credits to Journey's End will be chopped off.
-5:30PM ET/2:30PM PT - The Next Doctor in a 1 1/4 hour slot. The 2008 Christmas episode. Some people missed this story the first time it aired on BBC America (late June). This is the first repeat, the first do-over. And the story is out on DVD two days after this broadcast, so hopefully BBC America will hype it a bit.
-6:45PM ET/3:45PM PT - Planet Of The Dead in a 1 1/4 hour slot. Fans who were trying to upgrade to get BBC America just before Torchwood: Children Of Earth and Doctor Who - Planet Of The Dead might not have gotten the service changed in time. But you're ready by now. Plus, if your system added BBC America HD between July 26 and this repeat, you'll be able to see the episode in HD if you have that package.
USA - Syfy is taking Doctor Who off its weekly schedule at the end of September. Early Friday 25 September at 5AM Eastern is the last broadcast scheduled - Midnight. Anthology series Tales From The Darkside replaces Doctor Who in that early slot. We do not know how Syfy's Doctor Who rights work. If they still have repeat rights, Doctor Who might still turn up - probably in the weekday 8 hour show marathons known as "Daytime Rotation". But it looks like Who will say goodbye to having a fixed spot on the schedule.
The official cast list for the 2010 Doctor Who series:
The Doctor: Matt Smith
Amy Pond: Karen Gillan

This Week In Doctor Who PBS and Podcasts
August 29, 2009 - Vol 1, No 33
All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Hello. This is the second section of the This Week In Doctor Who column. Beginning today, the listings for Central/South America, Canada, and national US networks are moved back into section 1 - the section just listed as This Week In Doctor Who. This section is now called PBS and Podcasts because it covers all the public TV airings of Doctor Who, and I've moved the podcasts over here. This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs has the Sarah Jane schedules, the K9 series schedules (once it starts), and the stations with rights to Doctor Who that aren't airing it at the moment. Torchwood This Week stays the same.
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.
Eagle eyed viewers have spotted that WTTW is no longer airing the Doctor Who Confidential episodes. This stopped "a few weeks ago", so I wonder if they just did not buy the Confidentials for Series 3.
There have also been reports of new Who airing on PBS in the Denver, CO area. I checked both Rocky Mountain PBS http://www.rmpbs.org and KBDI 12 http://www.kbdi.org and found nothing bar references on RMPBS' site to when they aired Series 1 the one time in Summer 2007. The syndicator for Series 3 of Who did not put out a station list that got to me this year - we only know which stations have Doctor Who when one of them blabs about it or it appears on the schedule. I periodically check as many of the 300 or so PBS stations as I can to see if somebody picked the show up without fandom noticing, but that takes a while and stuff can be missed, given the volume of 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 - lacking).
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
WTVP 47 Peoria, IL
Iowa Public TV
Idaho Public TV
Wisconsin Public TV (currently in first run)
Milwaukee Public TV
KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT
KLRU 18 Austin, TX
Alaska Public TV
WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY (currently in first run)
KERA 13 Dallas, TX (currently in first run)
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 not.
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.
And now, the listings:

1) Home to the longest continuously running weekly-ish international Doctor Who chat show done in podcast format. Hosted by Louis Trapani, Ken Deep, and James Naughton, with frequent contributions/co-hosting by Dave AC, Mike Doran, and a cast of many. There is a feed for studio shows and a feed for live shows.
2) Also home to the Sonic Newsdriver, Louis Trapani's periodic rundown of new Doctor Who news.
3) Also home to the Hitch-hiker's Guide To British Sci-Fi, a podcast covering a mix of shows, including Doctor Who.
-Podshock Episode 160 - Two(!) guests this time as Dominic Glynn (1980s Doctor Who music composer) and Danny Stewart (rapidly rising music composer) do a joint interview. Also, the Regeneration story reviews continue with Spearhead From Space. Spearhead - the first colour story, the only story shot entirely on 16mm film (no, not 35 - 16), intro to a new Doctor and the next 5 crazy years. The latest convention updates, and more.
Radio Free Skaro http://www.radiofreeskaro.com
The 3 Canadians (Warren, Steven, Chris) get together on the weekends for about an hour or more to discuss the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane in a fairly amusing manner. When one is away, the 4th Canadian (Katrina) will play. Or will she - Katrina and her friend Nat have launched a spinoff podcast called "Bridging The Rift".
155 - "Holmesian Triple Act" - Part 3 of the Robert Holmes' review happens, and after that they set the Randomizer to decide who to look at next. More Jon Pertwee stories are coming out on DVD, creating mild interest. Sarah Jane Series 3 is on the way (mind you, it has not aired in the US, Canada, or New Zealand yet - New Zealand never even got Series 1). And it's come to this - a Doctor Who clip show on BBC Three.
Episode 156 "TARGET Complete" - Radio Free Skaro now has as many podcasts as the TARGET book range had numbered titles. The final TARGET book was "The Pescatons" even though it wasn't a TV story. In classic Who TV terms, this episode would be "Battlefield", the 156th story before somebody tried to retroactively change it this year for (rest of sentence excised). To mark this point in Who history, Radio Free Skaro is going to look at a Doctor Who writer and editor. His last name begins with A. Now, you could just listen to episode 155 to find out which writer it is, or you can try to guess. Meanwhile, BBC Kids is about to air classic Who again, its siren call trying to lure the RFS Superfiends back to watching television.
DWO Whocast http://www.thewhocast.com
Trevor from Australia and Marty from the UK talk Doctor Who with themselves, others, and teddy bears dressed as doctors. Now with a rock version of the opening theme, the Whocast continues to ask the questions that pop in to their heads. Regular correspondent - James. Frequent guest - Michael of the Tin Dog podcast.
#132. The man, the legend, the Jon Pertwee! An episode focusing on the 3rd Doctor, the first guy in colour, the one who has a Navy Lark that BBC Radio 7 likes to repeat a lot. Listen in, or Jon will turn up at your house with a bottle of brandy, two glasses, and an eyepatch story you've already heard. Note - while the episode is dated 26 August, it did not show up on my iTunes until late on 28 August, so it is in my list of shows to hear soon.
Tin Dog Podcast http://www.tin-dog.co.uk
UK based podcast looking at the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, or Sarah Jane Adventures. New episodes ever 2 weeks or so.
#98 - Enlightenment. One of Michael's favourite stories gets the DVD treatment. Even an alternate version is included. And Michael announces that he will do a podcast on The Prisoner. While The Prisoner isn't really the area of this column, I'll certainly mention it again when Michael starts it up and we have a name.

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. And could we have celebrity guest appearances?
Next Episode - Sunday 2PM EDT/7PM BST/11AM PDT - 101. New Beginnings. West and CIA are back! Live! Late breaking!
The Cultdom Collective http://www.cultdom.com
Live Talkshoe Broadcasts http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/54821
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 54821
Dave AC and Ian have guest hosted CIA so much that they developed a taste for doing it themselves. So they are launching their own show starting Sunday 2 August. Now the two shows will be side by side, one after the other for twice the chatting on twice the topics. Chats open 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
4. I Am The Doctor ... Doctor Who is the focus of an episode. Every so often, a new actor starts to play the Doctor as the old one leaves. This affects us all in different ways. How did it affect the folks who turned up for the live show. Find out, in the longest Cultdom Collective yet - 2 hours, 47 minutes, and some seconds.
Sunday 3:30PM EDT/12:30PM PDT/8:30PM BST - Would You Like Some Comedy In Your Sci-Fi? A live look at humor in Science Fiction. The Cultdom In Audio and Cultdom Collective callers heavily overlap, so expect lots of cheers and chatter about how CIA's relaunch went earlier that day.
6 September 3:30PM EDT/12:30PM PDT/8:30PM BST - Would You Like Some Sci-Fi In Your Comedy?The other side of the coin.
Two Minute Time Lord http://twominutetimelord.com
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.
#57 - Toby Hadoke and the Future of "Moths". Comedian and Doctor Who commentary moderator Toby Hadoke spoke with Chip. This time, the edited version to match the 2 minute theme. Coming soon - a longer (15 minute) cut of the interview with the writer and star of the acclaimed play "Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf".
Staggering Stories http://www.staggeringstories.net
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 52 - "The Dwarf Is Green". The original run of Red Dwarf on the BBC was 52 episodes. In memoriam of this largely forgotten bit of trivia, the 52nd Staggering Stories will take a closer look at Series 1 of the Dwarf. Lots of other stuff happens as well, but they seem very happy to look at the history of one of the UK's best sci-fi comedies. Also, evidence that Mr. Dalek may be alive!
Episode 53 - "Insert Title Here" - A brand new episode with 4 of the 5 panelists, due out Sunday-ish.
The Flashing Blade Podcast http://www.flashingblade.org.uk
Tony Gallichan returns to podcast land with new podcaster Jo! to look at Doctor Who and matters of interest. Tony grew up with UK fandom and knows all the cliches. Jo! - didn't. Flashing Blade wants to be known as the podcast that would like a nice cup of tea.
12. The Company Of Friends and Ghostlight get reviewed. Two new cats bring chaotic order back into Tony's life. Sweltering heat (must have passed 70 Fahrenheit) plagues the hosts. The feedback monster strikes again.
13 - Audio "The Kingmaker" and the 25 minute episode known as "An Unearthly Child" get reviewed. Not the full 4 episodes produced as one story that is now known as "An Unearthly Child". Just the episode with the title on it. I think that's a tad unfair on the other 3 episodes, but I'm not paying for their bandwidth or producing the show, so it's not my call.
Bridging The Rift http://bridgingtherift.wordpress.com
Katrina (Radio Free Skaro) and Nat launch a new show bringing the worlds of Doctor Who fandom, Torchwood fandom, Sarah Jane Adventures fandom, K9 fandom, and other areas together. Each week - a special guest co-host.
4. Russell T Davies and Fandom. Kate Orman is the guest co-host as our gang look at the impact of Russell T Davies. How has his vision shaped Doctor Who? Are we ever satisfied with anything? Very extended length installment.
Episode 5 was not out at press time, but expected soon.
The Minute Doctor Who Podcast http://web.mac.com/backintheussr6/The_Minute_Doctor_Who_Podcast/Podcast/Podcast.html
Video (sometimes just audio) podcast looking at Doctor Who projects. Episodes are usually under 5 minutes long.
21 - We Love The NHS. Luke explores the UK's National Health Service in Doctor Who related terms.

Robert Carrie King reviews Doctor Who topics (DVDs and news, mostly) on this Talkshoe program. Frequent cast member on CIA: Cultdom In Audio.
Most recent episode - Episode 42. Attack Of The Cybermen and a second attempt at Army Of Ghosts/Doomsday. Robert and everyone else who turns up (not had time to hear this episode yet, so don't know this week's cast) talk about 2 Cybermen stories. One story was full of plot twists tying together popular fan theories and fan fiction, setting up unlikely returns and making the Doctor look at someone in a different light. And the other was Attack Of The Cybermen. Any classic series fans probably just groaned. Apologies. Actually, BOTH stories do all those things. But Army Of Ghosts/Doomsday is much more popular than Attack Of The Cybermen, and hopefully this episode explored that issue.
The Tennantcast http://tennantcast.com
Kelsey, Kari, Flossie, and friends get together to dish on the latest David Tennant news.
15 - Tennant Jai Ho. This episode has literally just downloaded as I am writing. The guest - Meleena. Much hilarity ensues, I gather, and a song written about David Tennant for Meleena's birthday provides the closing.
The Wailing Fangirl http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/22228
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.
12. The gang look at Doctor 11 and Amy Pond's fashion style. Comic-Con reactions are covered. And a second look at Torchwood: Children Of Earth after a month of reflection.
A Podcast Of Impossible Things http://podcastofimpossiblethings.blogspot.com
Cardiff-based Doctor Who fans get together to discuss the latest Doctor Who and do a full length commentary on new Doctor Who episodes.
Full length commentaries on Torchwood: Children Of Earth episode 1 and Torchwood: Children Of Earth episode 5.
Bigger On The Inside http://www.earth-2.net
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 episode - 20. The Moonbase and The Macra Terror. Doctor Who meets Cybermen and Killer Krabs. The hosts explore these 2 early Troughton stories. Note to the hosts, as I think one of you reads the column - all the missing stories are out on CD. The audio is cleaned up dramatically and the CDs have narration that helps a lot. You may want to just buy the audios and play them while your telesnap reconstructions are running on the TV (and mute the TV's sound). These stories are so much better when you can hear what is being said, and on the CDs - you usually can.
Hoo On Who http://hooonwho.com
Fan reviews of recent Doctor Who DVDs by David Hooie, frequently with a guest co-host.
#13. Planet Of The Dead - Blu-Ray Release. David listens to the most recent Doctor Who story, the first one released on the Blu-Ray format. While all Doctor Who could be released on Blu-Ray if people wanted to, this was the first story filmed in HD, and therefore the first one where you would see noticable quality improvements (you could fit more classic episodes on a Blu-Ray and more extras and have less compression, but it won't radically change the picture/sound quality of the source material). So, how did the BBC do on their first Doctor Who Blu-Ray release. Opinion - mixed.
The Cloister Room http://thecloisterroom.com
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 - 3. "Man, Oh Mandalorian!" Tom looks at the canon debates in Doctor Who and Star Wars. He prefers Doctor Who's approach to canon..
Tim's Take On ...
Tim Drury's podcast on various issues. Still checking it out at press time. Available on iTunes.
The Big Finish Podcast http://www.bigfinish.com/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, etc).
Current episode - Rob Shearman special. Instead of doing an August episode, Nick Briggs parties with Rob and inserts what news updates there are in when the conversation slows a tad. Rob's short story work with Big Finish dominates the discussion, but he has a past with the company going back to its early audios. While Rob has been on podcasts before, this may be the first time that his name wound up in the episode title, and that counts for something.
Tachyon TV http://www.tachyon-tv.co.uk
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 http://www.mmmcommentaries.com
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..
The Two Doctors http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thetwodoctors
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 US premiere dates rather than UK. Approximately 90 minutes per episode. Show airs live with a text chat and can be downloaded later.
Next episode - Late Sunday Midnight EDT/9PM PDT/Monday 5AM BST

This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs
August 29, 2009 - Volume 1, Number 33
The weekly guide to Sarah Jane Adventures and K9 broadcasts, plus any extra matters.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
I have reorganized This Week In Doctor Who a bit. The Podcasts have moved to the second section, which has been renamed PBS and Podcasts. All Doctor Who schedules except for the PBS stations are now in the first section, which is still traditional This Week In Doctor Who. This section will seem a little shorter for now, at least until K9 starts appearing on TV stations around the world. A surge in Sarah Jane stations would also fill this section up.
Sarah Jane's current status:
UK - Series 3 will be on BBC One and CBBC this fall. No start date yet, but starting in late September like Series 1 and 2 would be the easiest way to do it.
USA - Since Syfy has not purchased Series 2 or 3 of Sarah Jane, we have no idea when or if the episodes will reach our TV screens. No network has mentioned that they are buying the show yet. Yes, BBC America has been sent e-mails and twitters asking if they'll step forward.
CANADA - BBC Kids has not mentioned any plans to pick up Sarah Jane Series 2. Instead they've been getting themselves dropped from some cable systems. No other network has mentioned if they want Sarah Jane in Canada.
USA and CANADA - Sarah Jane Series 2 will actually premiere in these two countries on DVD, barring last minute surprises. The DVD release is Tuesday November 10th.

Starring John Leeson as the voice of K9. A launch trailer for DisneyXD in the UK included K9 clips. If a bunch of Disney XD branded channels start airing K9, this section will get very busy very quickly.
Torchwood This Week
August 29, 2009 - Volume 3, Number 33
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Latin America - BBC Entertainment Latin America will air Torchwood Series 3 (Children Of Earth) weekly in September and October. The times seem to vary week to week.
GERMANY - RTL 2 will air Torchwood Series 3 (Children Of Earth) weekly from 16 September at 10:05PM CET.
USA - BBC America is shaking up their schedule significantly in September. In a move similar to SciFi/Syfy US' "Daytime Rotation", a weekday multi-hour block of shows will now cover a single program each day, flipping around through BBC America's back catalogue of programming. Most days this block will be 6 hours long and run from 11AM to 5PM Eastern (8AM to 2PM Pacific). In September the block is focused on Dramas and Comedies with just a couple days of reality programming. I am not going to cover BBC America's rotation here, but in the early weeks fans of Hotel Babylon, MI-5, Cracker, Primeval, Robin Hood, Coupling, and Catherine Tate are likely to be pretty happy.
USA - BBC America is giving Torchwood a regular weekly slot again - Saturdays 7PM Eastern/4PM Pacific. Everything Changes aired in that slot suddenly on August 22nd. Episodes air weekly as of Saturday September 5 with Day One.
USA - BBC America will also have 2 Torchwood marathons courtesy the new weekday shakeup mentioned above. On US Labor Day (Monday September 7), Children Of Earth will encore in a 7 hour block from 9AM to 4PM Eastern (6AM to 1PM Pacific). The first 45 minutes is an edited repeat of "Inside The Hub", with the 5 episodes in 75 minute slots starting at 9:45AM Eastern/6:45AM Pacific. A marathon of the first 6 episodes of Torchwood Series 1 airs Tuesday 15 September at 11AM Eastern/8AM Pacific.
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho .
