    Default Doctor Who News, Articles, Cast and Crew Interviews

    Are US PBS Stations Losing Doctor Who?
    Series may jump to Sci-Fi Channel.

    September 03, 2004 - Doctor Who, the series that helped make PBS pledge drives much more interesting while bringing in tons of money in the '80s, may be leaving those stations for good if a deal currently in the works goes through. According to an e-mail sent out by representatives of Maryland Public Television, one of the handful of PBS networks in the US that still runs the series, BBC America is refusing to send any additional episodes to stations which means they can only run the episodes they currently have in house. The reason: BBC is currently in negotiations with the SCI-FI Channel cable network to have an exclusive contract for the series.

    I can see it now...

    The SGC commissary.

    Jack, Sam, Teal'c and Daniel are having a snack. Jack (red jello), Sam (blue jello), Teal'c (a banana and green jello), Daniel (some cranraisins).

    Daniel: So, Dr. Who is on the SciFi Channel tonight at 9.

    Jack: Who is?

    Daniel: I don't know, Jack. I hope it's Tom Baker though.

    Silence

    Jack: I thought you said Dr. Who?

    Daniel: I did Jack.

    Jack: Who is who?

    Daniel: I said I don't know Jack. It could be Tom Baker, it could be Peter Davison or...

    Jack: Those don't sound like doctors, though.

    Teal'c: Indeed not, O'Neill. Doctors McCoy, or Crusher or Bashir -- even Dr. Beckett -- those are all familiar scifi doctors.

    Daniel: No, no you don't understand. Dr. Who is the name of the show -- and the character.

    Jack: Who is?

    Daniel: Yes, Jack.

    Jack: Oh. Teal'c -- you gonna eat that banana?

    (Sam went and got a second helping of blue jello. Never miss an opportunity to stock up on blue jello.)

    That script cleared up everything!

    And was hilarious in the old school jack fashion.

    That would be nice. Get to see Mary Tamm (my fav of the sidekicks) again.

    Might somewhat makeup for letting the Trek series slip through their (scifi) fingers and losing them to the Spike Channel, who shows them out of order and at odd times.

    Yeah but is that the rights for the repeats of the old series or the rights to show the new series when it's done?

    Maybe SciFi can air the episode parts in order, unlike the PBS station I watch. At least they show it and Red Dwarf--I need my weekly fix. I think Scifi might have aired both once upon a time.

    hmmm.. maybe I'll get a chance to see if it's as good as I remember from when I was 8 or 9 and local PBS actually aired it.

    I know I'll watch Dr. Who. It was the first British Scifi show I watch on PBS. They stop showing it a long time ago in our PBS station.

    I hope they show it from the beginning.

    I sort of like the Deleks(sp.) as a bad guy in the series.

    So, what kind of Doctor was Doctor Who anyway? MD, JD, PhD, ScD, EdD, DVM, DDS, PharmD, DC? Any clues?

    I really don't know but in one episode, I think, he mention that was his name, Doctor.

    Remember it has been years since I have seen the show on PBS. So, I may be wrong.

    The Doctor was just the Doctor. Like the Master was the Master...

    Default Doctor Who UK Air-date and US Network Rumors.

    For any members of GWF who are looking forward to the new series of Doctor Who that's been filming... there are some pretty solid rumors floating around about when it will air in the UK and what network in the US may have aquired the airing rights.

    The rumor is that it will air March 26th on BBC1 at around 6:45 or 7:00pm with a special called "Doctor Who Confidential" to air on BBC3 immediately after.

    As for the US, it's looking like NBC/Universal has aquired the rights for the American broadcast. These are the guys that own Sci-Fi/USA networks, and the skuttlebut is that the new series will air on Sci-Fi with rebroadcasts and the backcatalog to be on USA. No word on when Doctor Who will air in the US, but I'd bet on Summer with SG-1 Season 9, Atlantis Season 2, BSG Season 2.

    These are just rumors for now, but Outpost Gallifrey seems to think they are coming form solid sources. Time will tell. I'm really hoping that the info about Sci-Fi is accurate. BBC America would have been a big mistake.
