Classic Doctor Who is on KBTC, the PBS station out of Tacoma. So, here is the KBTC Doctor Who schedule (as best as we can guess it).
BBC America is also the home of Torchwood reruns in the United States. Here's the current schedule:
Syfy now has the US rights to show the Australian K-9 series. Here is their schedule:
You can find out more about the show at its website, www.k9official.com.
The CBC is no longer showing new Doctor Who or Torchwood. But they do have some limited rerun rights, so keep an eye on their programme guide for possible late night showings.
The CBC's Doctor Who web page can be found at cbc.ca/doctorwho/. The CBC's website is also presenting a Doctor Who documentary, Planet of the Doctor, which can be seen at cbc.ca/planetofthedoctor/.
Information about the show, including web editions of some out-of-print Doctor Who novels and new made-for-the-Internet stories, can be found at the BBC's Doctor Who website at bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/.
Want to see some of the websites shown or mentioned in the show, or that are otherwise part of the show?
The BBC's website has some made-for-internet stories. A new pre-Ecclesston ninth Doctor, played by Richard E. Grant, appears in the fortieth anniversary story, "Scream of the Shalka" (www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/webcasts/shalka/). The sixth Doctor meets up with the Cybermen in "Real Time" (www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/webcasts/realtime/). The made-for-Internet version of "Shada," featuring Paul McGann as the Doctor, Lalla Ward as Romana, and John Leeson as K-9, is back, and can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/webcasts/shada/.
The June pledge drive got off to a roaring start then, unusually, dried up a bit in the middle, but a final flurry brought in so many big pledges that the final total was well over $17,000. Needless to say, Doctor Who on KBTC is quite safe for another six months.
We're going to have to get used to saying "The twelfth Doctor", because it looks like we're getting a shiny new Doctor for Christmas! The BBC has announced that Matt Smith will leave the show at the end of the year, in the Christmas special. Let the speculation on the new one begin! Jenna-Louise Coleman, however, will be staying on as Clara for at least another season.
It's starting! Some of the initial casting for the fiftieth anniversary special accidentally leaked out, so now we know that both David Tennant and Billie Piper will be returning. Also appearing will be John Hurt (who cameos in "The Name of the Doctor"), Gemma Redgrave as Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, and Joanna Page as Queen Elizabeth I!
This year's Hugo Award nominations have been announced, and yet again, Doctor Who is competing against itself. In the Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) category, Doctor Who nominated episodes are "Asylum of the Daleks", "The Angels Take Manhattan", and "The Snowmen". They will be up against episodes of Fringe ("Letters of Transit") and Game of Thrones ("Blackwater"). In the Best Related Work category, one of the nominees is Chicks Unravel Time: Women Journey Through Every Season of Doctor Who, edited by L. M. Myles and Deborah Stanish, the sequel to Chicks Dig Time Lords (a previous Hugo winner). Also nominated was frequent Doctor Who writer, and Toastmaster of this year's WorldCon, Paul Cornell. He is nominated in the Best Graphic Story category for Saucer Country, Volume 1: Run, and as part of the crew on SF Squeecast, nominated again for Best Fancast (which won last year). The Hugo results will be announced at this year's WorldCon, LoneStarCon 3, in San Antonio August 29 to Spetember 2. For the complete list of nominees, see the press release at www.lonestarcon3.org/hugo-awards.
Oh my freaking word! Doctor Who won a Peabody Award! It's an institutional award, for its longevity, flexibility, and creativity. You can read the press release at peabodyawards.com/2013/03/72nd-annual-peabody-awards-winners-announced-2/.
The fiftieth anniversary special will be broadcast in 3-D!
The January 2013 Doctor Who fundraiser was a squeaker, but the final tally was $14,992. A quick pass of the hat pushed the total over the top and brought in the $15,000 needed to keep the show on the air for another six months. The station also wants to know more about its Doctor Who viewers and what they like, and how they want to celebrate the Doctor's fiftieth anniversary in November. To do so, they've set up a survey at surveymonkey.com.
The final nominations for the National Television Awards are now out! Of special interest to Whovians is Doctor Who's nomination for Best Drama, Matt Smith for Drama Performance Male, and Karen Gillan in Drama Performance Female. Anyone with a computer ould vote, and after the final counting, the winners in their respective categories were Downton Abbey, Colin Morgan for Merlin, and Miranda Hart for Call the Midwife.
The Writer's Guild of Great Britain presented their 2012 awards, and one of the big winners was Steven Moffat, who won the Special Award for Outstanding Writing (essentially a reward for his entire career). Also, "The Curse of Clyde Langer" from The Sarah Jane Adventures, writen by Phil Ford, won for Best Children's TV Script. For the complete list of winners, see the Guild's website.
There was a little bit of unfinished business at the end of "The Angels Take Manhattan": What happened to Brian, Rory's father? Well, in this unfilmed scene, written by Chris Chibnall and narrated by Arthur Darvill, we find out. WARNING: Have some tissues handy!
You know that book, The Angel's Kiss, that features so prominently in "The Angels Take Manhattan"? Guess what? You can buy it! Unortunately, it's only an e-book right now. But if you want to get it for your Kindle, here it is. And the audiobook, narrated by Alex Kingston, is also available.
There were several Doctor Who and related nominations for the BAFTA Cymru awards, for television shows made in Wales.
It's a little late, but we just got word that Doctor Who Magazine won Britain's highest comics award, the Eagle, as Best British Comic. It's about time!
Is anybody surprised that Doctor Who won another Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form, at this year's WorldCon, ChiCon IV in Chicago? Is anybody surprised that it was Neil Gaiman winning it for "The Doctor's Wife" (beating out "A Good Man Goes to War" and "The Girl Who Waited", as well as an episode of Community and one of last year's Hugo acceptance speeches)? Well, that's just what happened. In his acceptance speech, Gaiman said, "Only a fool or a mad man would try to do it again...so I'm on the third draft." Yay! Paul Cornell also shared in the award for Best Fancast, for The SF Squeecast.
The run-up to the fiftieth anniversary begins: BBC Two has commissioned a behind-the-scenes movie that would show how Doctor Who came about and made it to air. Entitled An Adventure in Space and Time, it will be written by Mark Gatiss. No word yet on when it will be aired, but you know we'll show it as soon as we can at an Androgums meeting.
More lost footage has been found! An episode of an old 1960s teen magazine series, A Whole Scene Going, was recently unearthed. Although focused primarily on music, the episode also has a segment on the filming of the second Peter Cushing Doctor Who movie, The Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 AD, with behind-the-scenes coverage and an interview with the director, Gordon Flemyng. You can see a preview of the episode at the Tim Disney Archive site.
Too far north to see Doctor Who on KBTC? Maybe not any more! KBTC has announced that their signal now reaches Belligham, Vancouver, and Victoria. If you get over-the-air digital channels, retune your receiver to get channels 28.1 and 28.2, and you may be in for a very pleasant surprise every Saturday night at 7:00 p.m.
We have our own domain! So now androgums.org will be the place to come for all the latest on our little enclave of Seattle-area Doctor Who fandom. But the domain does cost us a little bit of money, so if you can help out with a donation, just click here:
The latest news about the new show can be found at Outpost Gallifrey's news page.
The Emerald City Androgums are a fan club devoted to Doctor Who, and to having as much fun as unhumanly possible at our meetings. We meet every other month for an Androgum potluck. Members are encouraged to eat, drink, and be merry, and we watch whatever shows tickle our fancy. We try to include at least one selection of the good Doctor himself.
In addition to semi-regular parties, we also had a newsletter that tried to keep the more isolated-from-fandom members up-to-date on the latest Who happenings and rumors. It also served as a creative forum for any Androgum who felt like writing a story or drawing a picture.
The newsletter is no more, however, and all newsletter activities will soon move on-line. So if you want to contribute something, here's the place to do it!
We can scan art, so if you'd like to help us create an on-line Androgum gallery, please feel free to send the art to us!
And coming soon: Club T-shirts and aprons!
