BBC America is also the home of Torchwood reruns in the United States, which now includes the Miracle Day series. Here's the current schedule:
BBC America is also the home for Class. Here's the current schedule:

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/.
In honor of the anniversary of Elisabeth Sladen's passing and the tweet-along worldwide watchathon of "The Stolen Earth" and "Journey's End", Russell T. Davies wrote this final story for The Sarah Jane Adventures.
The January 2020 pledge drive on KBTC Shattered expectations, easily going past the $18,000 goal. So sure enough, classic Doctor Who on our local PBS station is good for another six months.
Finally, the Target line of novelizations of the classic series is about to be complete, with paperbacks of Resurrection of the Daleks, Revelation of the Daleks, The Pirate Planet, and the 1996 TV movie all coming out with the familiar logo. Also being added to the line are three novelizations of stories from the revival, all written by the writers who wrote the original television scripts: Dalek by Robert Shearman, The Crimson Horror by Mark Gatiss, and The Witchfinders by Joy Wilkinson.
At long last, a new trailer for the upcoming new season. Here it is:
This year's Children in Need fundraiser brought in nearly £48 million to help children in both the United Kingdom and around the world. And Jodie Whittaker, Mandip Gill, and Tosin Cole also got to say hello to a special young Doctor Who fan:
Sophie Aldred is writing her first Doctor Who novel, in which Ace meets up with the thirteenth Doctor. DoctorWho: At Childhood's End comes out early in 2020.
A lost Doctor Who episode is back—but it wasn't found. Students and staff at the University of Central Lancashire recreated the 1965 episode, "Journey to the Unknown", a Doctor-less episode that served as a teaser for "The Daleks' Masterplan" (and a way to fill out the recording block when they ran an episode short, without having to pay the regulars more). You can view it here:
The Doctor was blanked at the Saturn Awards. Doctor Who lost out to Westworld at the 45th Saturn Awards in the Best Science Fiction Television Series category. In the acting categories, Jodie Whittaker lost Best Actress on Television to Emelia Clarke from Game of Thrones, while in the Best Performance by a Younger Actor in a Television Series category, Tosin Cole lost to another Game of Thrones star (and previous Doctor Who guest star), Maisie Williams. For a complete list of all the winners and nominees, take a look right here.
One of the singular most influential people in Doctor Who's history, Terrance Dicks, passed away in August. He was script editor during the Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee years, and wrote or co-wrote "The War Games", "Robot", "The Brain of Morbius", "Horror of Fang Rock", "State of Decay", and "The Five Doctors", as well as the stage plays The Seven Keys to Doomsday and The Ultimate Adventure. He may have made an even bigger contribution to the novels, writing over sixty novelizations for the classic series (and one for The Sarah Jane Adventures) as well as many original novels and short stories. He had a hand in creating the Time Lords, the Sontarans and Rutans, Harry Sullivan, the Sisterhood of Karn, and the Master. Terrance can be remembered through donations to his favorite charity, Save the Children.
The Doctor lost to The Good Place again at the 2019 Hugo Awards, as the episode "Janet(s)" beat out both "Rosa" and "Demons of the Punjab" for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. (The good news is that The Good Place has only one more season to go!) Verity contributors Lynne M. Thomas and Erika Ensign did win Best Semiprozine, however, as part of the team behind Uncanny Magazine. You can read the complete list of Hugo nominees and winners right here.
It was a little closer than it has been the past few times, but in the end the June 2019 pledge drive met its goal of $18,000, assuring that classic Doctor Who will be broadcast in western Washington for the rest of the year.
Hot on the heels of the animated reconstruction of "The Macra Terror" comes:
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.

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 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!
