It's been a year since he left, but viewers are still in search of Dr. Who.

"In the beginning, we had a ton of calls," said Irena Melvin, WUFT-TV programming assistant.

Dr. Who, one of the most popular programs on PBS channels nationwide, temporarily ended a nearly 10-year run on WUFT-TV Channel 5 in September 1995 because of its high purchase price, which runs as high as $85,000 for a season. (There is a fee even if the station airs re-runs.)

It was the difference between showing Dr. Who and providing a better variety of shows.

Today, while more money is available, WUFT-TV programming incorporates musicals, old movies, such as "An American in Paris" or "2001: A Space Odyssey" and opportunities for it to buy into special first-run shows.

But die-hard Dr. Who fans might see the show again on WUFT.

"It depends on the station hitting the right fiscal year - and how many cuts we have to take because of decreases in federal funding," Melvin said.
