I read with great dismay in your (Walt Belcher's) column that WEDU, Channel 3 might drop "Dr. Who."I don't understand why Jim Stasko, the program director, would want to deprive Tampa Bay (area) viewers of their only opportunity to watch a program as excellent as "Dr. Who." It has everything that made "Star Trek" a classic — humor, pathos, human (and non-human) rights, special effects, engaging characters and never-boring plots.

If Mr. Stasko needs to make budget cuts why doesn't he cancel the numerous programs duplicated on WUSF, Channel 16?

Frances Ayres, Lakeland

The verdict is still out on the fate of "Dr. Who." But, episodes starring Peter Davison will air through December. — Editor
