This Week In Doctor Who
March 6, 2010 - Vol 13, No 9
The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide since 1998.

Canadian network SPACE http://www.spacecast.com has scheduled the new Doctor
Who episodes for Saturdays 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacfic starting 17 April, the
same day as BBC America's http://www.bbcamerica.com premiere (BBC America
has not given a time slot yet). SPACE will presumably air the episodes the
same week as BBC America, so episodes are likely to be about 2 weeks behind
the UK until either BBC One takes a week off (shortening the gap) or BBC
America and SPACE take a week off (lengthening the gap).

There are claims that ABC in Australia http://www.abc.net.au/tv will start
the new Doctor Who in April, which would make it the shortest gap for
Australia for regular episodes yet. However, ABC has not said anything
publicly, and no date is out, so don't schedule time off work or plan
parties yet.

I have a theory on BBC America's decision to start Doctor Who on 17 April
instead of the 3 April date that everyone assumes BBC One in the UK will
use. The theory is that there is no circumstance where BBC America will air
a new Doctor Who episode on the 3rd of July.

If BBC One premieres Doctor Who as expected on 3 April and opts to air all
13 episodes without a gap, the run would conclude on Saturday 26 June. This
would probably be fine for BBC America. But if BBC One takes a week off for
Eurovision, or because a sports game is in an inconvenient slot, then the
series will go across 3 July, and we would have a problem.

As long as I have paid attention to BBC America, the network has avoided
airing new dramas, comedies, or reality shows from around 3 July to 5 July,
due to the American Independence Day holiday on 4 July. People will be
traveling, people will be partying, and TV ratings will be below normal. BBC
America is not going to take the chance that they could be airing either
part of the series finale on that date.

The 17 April start date ensures that BBC America will air, at most, 11
episodes through 26 June (possibly 10 - some years they don't air new shows
on Memorial Day weekend, so we could get a gap on 29 May). BBC America can
then air a repeat or something on 3 July and air the last 2 or 3 episodes
starting 10 July, away from the weekend they fear.

Most broadcast and cable networks in the US try not to air new episodes of
regular programming that weekend either. This isn't just a BBC America
phobia.

Anyway, the new episodes are getting closer. Anticipation is building. But
there are still many Doctor Who episodes already airing on TV now. If not, I
wouldn't have a column to write. So back to business ...

The official cast list for the 2010 Doctor Who series:

The Doctor: Matt Smith
Amy Pond: Karen Gillan

Due to technical issues I am still far behind on podcasts, and plan to bring
that section back in a week or two when I might be able to keep track of
them again.

For press releases on Doctor Who, keep an eye on the BBC Press Office
http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice and C21 Media http://www.c21media.net .

This Week In Doctor Who PBS
March 6, 2010
by Benjamin F Elliott

The public TV stations known to have bought Series 30:

Idaho Public TV - currently in first run
WILL 12 Urbana, IL - currently in first run
Milwaukee Public TV - currently in first run
WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI - currently in first run
KERA 13 Dallas, TX - currently in first run
Iowa Public TV - begins 13 March - pledge special 9PM CDT
KCPT 19 Kansas City, MO - 2 episodes on March 6 as pledge, regular run from
27 March

The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 29
(all of the Series 30 stations fall in this category except KCPT):

WXXI 21 Rochester, NY
WTTW 11 Chicago, IL
WTVP 47 Peoria, IL
Idaho Public TV
Wisconsin Public TV
KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT
OETA Oklahoma
KLRU 18 Austin, TX
Alaska Public TV
WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY
West Virginia Public Broadcasting - currently in first run

I am confident that there are more stations with rights to Series 29 and 30
than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me or scheduled the
show.

Series 28 is currently available to public TV stations in an American Public
TV package until March 31, 2010. For the Series 27 and 28 packages, stations
bought the rights to cycle through the episodes 4 times. They are not
required to do so. While no stations have been airing Series 27 regularly
since the American Public TV package expired, WGBY 57 in Springfield, MA is
airing one episode from that run as a pledge special on March 13, and if
they choose to go with Doctor Who regularly they will start with Series 27,
purchased direct from BBC Worldwide Americas.

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 Colin Baker
episodes. WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes. These are also
purchased from BBC Worldwide Americas.

Some stations are using Doctor Who for pledge purposes in March. This list
may grow:
6 March 9:30PM CST - KCPT 19 Kansas City, MO - Partners In Crime and The
Fires Of Pompeii
13 March 9:15PM EST - WGBY 57 Springfield, MA - The End Of The World (battle
with a Doc Martin episode, the winner gets on the schedule)
13 March 9PM CST - Iowa Public TV - Voyage Of The Damned
13 March 9:30PM CST - Milwaukee Public TV - Planet Of The Ood (repeats at
10:50PM)
20 March 10:10PM CST - WILL 12 Urbana, IL - Voyage Of The Damned
