This Week In Doctor Who
September 19, 2009 - Vol 12, No 36
The weekly guide to Doctor Who broadcasts worldwide since 1998.
by Benjamin F. Elliott

The new animated Doctor Who story Dreamland (starring David Tennant and Georgia Moffett) does not have a premiere date yet. We are still waiting. Should be soon.

The Big Finish/BBC Radio 7 co-produced 8th Doctor audios from 2006-2008 are repeating on BBC Radio 7 right now. Weeknights 6PM and Midnight British Standard Time. The first 5 episodes from Series 1 have already aired and can be heard on the website until 7 days after the broadcast of each one. The last 3 episodes from Series 1 and the first 2 from Series 2 will air this week. Episodes 3 through 6 of Series 2 will air the following week along with a radio documentary "The Story Of Doctor Who". The final 2 episodes of Series 2 have not aired on Radio 7, and we do not know if the 3rd and 4th series of this saga will ever air on the radio where it belongs.

The official cast list for the 2010 Doctor Who series:

The Doctor: Matt Smith
Amy Pond: Karen Gillan

The Paul McGann/Lucie Millar 8th Doctor audio series, produced by Big Finish. Encore run. Series 1 aired on BBC 7 in 2006/2007 before being released on CD. The first 6 episodes of Series 2 aired on BBC Radio 7 in 2008 after being released on CD. This run seems to be a repeat of those 14 episodes. As far as we know, the final 2 episodes of Series 2 and the recently released on CD Series 3 are not due for a BBC Radio 7 broadcast at this time. The Beyond The Vortex episodes are brief documentaries on the episode of the night to fill out the hour.

This Week In Doctor Who PBS and Podcasts
September 19, 2009 - Vol 1, No 36
All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
by Benjamin F. Elliott

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.

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
OETA Oklahoma
KLRU 18 Austin, TX
Alaska Public TV
WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY
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:

update before 19 September
Many of the podcasters in the UK (along with Who fans in general) were at the Whooverville convention on Sunday. There was a podcasting panel, so I imagine it will be a hot topic on Who related podcasts for a while, like the panel at the Gallifrey convention was for podcasters in February.

This section is always open to discovering new Doctor Who/Sarah Jane/K9/Torchwood material of note. If you think your webcast/podcast (or somebody else's) belongs in this section, e-mail me.

Doctor Who: Podshock
Live Talkshoe broadcasts -
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 23358
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.
Current episodes:
-Podshock Episode 161 - Doctor Who news and part one of an in-depth interview with Gary Russell. James is absent from this episode.
-Podshock Episode 162 (just released, downloading to my computer as I write this) - Part 2 of the interview with Gary Russell, and a guest appearance from the famous Jules Burt. Longtime Podshock listeners should know Jules. Plus, based on the notes, he's now married.

Radio Free Skaro
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.
Current Episodes:
-158 - "Amsterdamned" - The second half of a commentary on "Arc Of Infinity", having left the superior* "Warriors Of The Deep" to a parallel universe version of the podcast where the 3 Canadians wear evil goatees. Meanwhile, Warren's computer attempts to terminate itself during recording, creating the greatest amount of drama in the episode.
Coming Soon:
Episode 159 - "Survival Of The Fittest Laptop" - Will the other computers join Warren's in efforts to die and derail the new topic? Will breaking news appear in time to liven things up? Was it actually Warren's computer, or is that confusion caused by listening to "another" alternate universe version of RFS. To quote a podcaster who has never been on Radio Free Skaro - 'we just don't know!'
*Note - In this case superior refers to the script they were using. It is up to the viewers to decide which story's script was treated better during filming.

DWO Whocast
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.
Current episodes
#133. The man, the legend, the Jon Pertwee, part 2! This episode focuses on the first 3 series of Jon Pertwee's run as the Doctor. The years where the Doctor was stranded on Earth.
#134. The man, the legend, the Jon Pertwee, part 3! This episode focuses on the last 2 series of Jon Pertwee's run as the Doctor, along with his subsequent appearances in the show during his life.

Tin Dog Podcast
UK based podcast looking at the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, or Sarah Jane Adventures. New episodes ever 2 weeks or so.
Current episode:
#100 - The 100th Episode: Michael's Top 20 Whoness Things. Dedicated to the memory of Andrew Barber. A very special episode of Tin Dog Podcast, but in a good way.

The Cultdom Collective
Live Talkshoe Broadcasts
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 54821
Doctor Who (and other) fans get together to discuss anything that is unusual, odd, or otherwise not normal. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere - until somebody mentions the quality control of Talkshoe's service. Chats open 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
Current episode:
7. Does Superman Suck?. The state of Superman, particularly in the five movies everyone remembers. The good, the bad, the weird - examined by a gang of Doctor Who fans who like their superheros too. Bonus at the end - our panelists have to decide which superheroes deserve another movie. Some results may surprise.
Special Un-numbered episode. Cultdom At Whooverville 2009. A special episode with just Dave and Ian. Dave's experiences at Whooverville are recounted, including some never before heard sound clips, and Dave's own attempt at putting out a restored audio of the podcasting panel.
Upcoming episodes:
Sunday 3:30PM EDT/12:30PM PDT/8:30PM BST - Samantha's Slash Spectacular. Samantha (Romana 2, host of The Wailing Fangirl) is expected to co-host this exploration into the history of slash fan fiction. Adults only episode.
27 September 3:30PM EDT/12:30PM PDT/8:30PM BST - Has Bond Shaken His Last Martini? This episode is not expected to focus on the James Bond Jr. animated series from the 1990s.

Two Minute Time Lord
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.
Current Episodes:
#62 - "God and "Gridlock"". Chip examines how Russell T Davies handles religion in Doctor Who. And Chip thinks the lessons of Gridlock should be taught to some other people.
#63 - "Solving the "Dalek" Dating Controversy". (Note - this episode is reported to be a semi-sequel to the Two Minute Time Lord episodes 8, 9, and 10.) The controversy over the dates in "Dalek" and the dates in "The Stolen Earth/Journey's End" seeming to conflict. Helped with a side order of Charles Shultz' Peanuts.

Staggering Stories
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 54 - "Hounds Of The Whooverville". All 5 of the current cast of Staggering actually made it to the same recording for the first time in a while. Hear about their adventures at Whooverville. Marvel at how the Head Of Pertwee has become an international superstar, but still finds a way to "keep it real". Feedback, including another trailer for a short story written by some great person or other.
Episode 54 - "Whooverville, Whatterville, Where-erville, Whenerville, Whyerville?" - An all new episode of Staggering Stories, coming Sunday. You've heard the Whooverville panel on various podcasts. But have you heard the thoughts of Adam, the guy who brought the audio recorder?

The Flashing Blade Podcast
Tony Gallichan. Jo ()! One man, one woman. One with decades of Doctor Who fan experience. Another who turns on the show when it airs on TV. One has lots of cats. Another can say the word "news" in various amusing ways. Together they unite for a weekly look into the worlds of Doctor Who. Often reviewing a Big Finish audio and a TV series story, unless something crazier comes along. Follow their weekly adventures, as they work to turn our brains to jelly and conquer the Earth. Because they are aliens, and that's how they roll. Flashing Blade - an evil plot to destroy the Earth. (death ray bolt flies past) Just Kidding!
Current episodes:
14 - Patient Zero and Rose. Jo! and the Tony look back to the mists of 2005, when Doctor Who returned to our TV screens. They also look to modern times, where new Big Finish audio "Patient Zero" has an older Doctor (Colin Baker) and a newer companion (Charley Pollard, played by India Fisher). More cat antics. Recorded early as they prepared for Whooverville.
15 - SPACE: 1999 Plus 10! With special theme tune and 70s graphics. Colin Baker, Jo!, and the Tony went to Whooverville. The head of a previous Doctor was carried around as a trophy. Sound conditions were ... erratic. Lots of convention talk, and the unedited podcast panel. I could not identify a difference in the sound quality between this version and the Radio Free Skaro version (probably as it is the same raw audio).
Coming Soon:
A review of "The Holy Terror" and "Image Of The Fendahl". Plus more Earth conquest. (another death ray bolt flies past)

Bridging The Rift
Katrina (Radio Free Skaro) and Nat bring 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.
8. Chris Burgess (Radio Free Skaro, TennantCast) is the latest and possibly tallest guest co-host of Bridging The Rift. This week - Exploring Conventions. How do conventions work these days? Difference between conventions in various places. Convention stories. Whooverville and Gallifrey 2009 get used as comparison points.

The Minute Doctor Who Podcast
Video (sometimes just audio) podcast looking at Doctor Who projects. Episodes are usually under 5 minutes long.
Current episode:
21 - We Love The NHS. Luke explores the UK's National Health Service in Doctor Who related terms.

Doctor Who Review Today
call in number (724) 444-7444 talkshoe id 22756
Live editions Late Fridays 1AM EDT/10PM PDT/6AM BST every couple of weeks
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 (Darth Skeptical and Samantha among them) 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
Kelsey, Kari, Flossie, and friends get together to dish on the latest David Tennant news.
17 - I'm A Pony! The title is inspired by Richard Simmons, and not by backing music in the Staggering Stories podcast. Fabio!, Richard Simmons, and a screencap from the Friday Night Project throw the team into a discussion on alternate careers for David Tennant if the acting experiment doesn't work out. Just wanted to note - the sound quality for the last couple of Tennantcast episodes has been much improved. The people in front of (and working secretly behind) the microphones - congrats.

The Wailing Fangirl
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.
Current episode:
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
Cardiff-based Doctor Who fans get together to discuss the latest Doctor Who and do a full length commentary on new Doctor Who episodes.
Current episodes:
Full length commentaries on Torchwood: Children Of Earth episode 1 and Torchwood: Children Of Earth episode 5.

Bigger On The Inside
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 - 21. The Faceless Ones and The Evil Of The Daleks. Learn why the hosts are subjecting themselves to just the reconstructions on missing episodes - the logic makes sense, though I'd cheat and play the CD as the audio while looking at the reconstruction. Ben and Polly leave in a hurry, as Victoria arrives in a hurry. Are these the episodes where Jamie comes into his own?

Hoo On Who
Fan reviews of recent Doctor Who DVDs by David Hooie, frequently with a guest co-host.
Current episode:
#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
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 - 4. Requiem For A Drama. Tom returns after 4 weeks away and looks at shows that are cancelled before their time. Is it worth investing in a show that might soon (or has already) been cancelled. Tom's view is similar to mine (yes, it is worth it), but you're downloading Tom's show for his opinions on this.

Tim's Take On ...
Tim Drury's podcast on various issues. Available on iTunes.

The Big Finish 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
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
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.

CIA - Cultdom In Audio
Live Talkshoe broadcasts
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 30659
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?
Episode 101 is now not scheduled. We do not know when CIA's return date is.

The Two Doctors
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

TV Talk Radio
Weeknights 6 to 8PM EDT (3 to 5PM PDT) [Friday 7PM EDT/4PM PDT]

This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs
September 19, 2009 - Volume 1, Number 36
The weekly guide to Sarah Jane Adventures and K9 broadcasts, plus any extra matters.
by Benjamin F. Elliott

Sarah Jane's current status:

UK - Doctor Who Magazine reports that Sarah Jane Adventures will air on Thursdays and Fridays on BBC One in their CBBC block starting Thursday 15 October. This indicates 2 episodes per week, with all 12 episodes airing in 6 weeks. I am not aware of confirmation from the BBC website, and no listings have appeared yet for the Sarah Jane channels on 15 October or beyond.

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.
