  • Glad for new season episodes, but disappointed they all start on a Sunday night that the Packers play an important end of season game 🙁

    • Hi Fay, yes – you can watch the third season of this series starting on the night of its broadcast premiere (this coming Sunday, Jan. 8) on PBS Passport.

    • Alyssa Beno says:

      Hi Mary – exciting news! We just got the long-awaited offer for seasons 9 and 10 of Doc Martin. No premiere date has been set, but please watch this space for updates.

  • Why are three of your best shows airing back to back on Sunday nights in prime time starting January 8? Wouldn’t it make more sense to schedule them on different nights to give your audience something to look forward to on other nights? Especially since some evenings are devoid of new or interesting programming.

    • Although “All Creatures” is THE BEST, I agree totally with James Fine! It has been a very bad autumn with few interesting programs, especially on Friday nights. We were “forced” to watch that one with the boy who died on the beach, with its many iterations.
      Too many programs were so violent they drove us to watching cooking shows or rescuing trucks that slid off the highways in Canada or stories of storms on the Weather Channel.
      Next time you schedule, do as James Fine suggests: give your viewers one new program at a time (or maybe two) to promote viewership. We can read during the other one you slip between the good ones.
      PLEASE give us mysteries with GOOD DETECTIVES WITHOUT TOO MUCH VIOLENCE. We have seen them when you’ve showed them before. Or go back a decade or two and give us some of THOSE, that were so entrancing that we waited all week to see another episode and talked about them all week with friends! Try WWII dramas, too. Many current viewers were too young to have seen them.
      However, we will watch Sunday evening Masterpiece programs’ first episode to decide whether they are worth watching or not. Too many have been “not” lately.
      We will be glued to the TV on January 8, for sure, with instructions to family and friends Not to phone!
      All our best wishes for a highly successful January viewership.

      Now if only we sustaining members could only get Air Waves. We’ve missed TWO ISSUES and have written and phoned. What’s wrong? Is there no one in the office since November? Too bad for us.

    • Hi Mary – look for it in March 2023! Also, a new “Call the Midwife” holiday special airs 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 25 and 10 p.m. Monday, Dec. 26.

    • Hi Paul – we’re sorry to hear that! Our December guide arrived delayed to our members the first week of the month due to printing issues, but you should have received it by now. Please call Audience Services at 800-422-9707 and they can get you your copy.

      • We also have still not received our copy, but we’ve been viewing the schedule online. Just wanted to let you know the previous writer was not the only case.

        • Thank you for letting us know, Peter. We’re sorry you also haven’t gotten your Airwaves guide. Please do give Audience Services a call at 800-422-9707.

  • Such great variety of programming. Spanning local to international. High quality fiction and non-fiction shows. Engaging series’ and episode tv. Marking my calendar!

    • Hi Kathi – we don’t have an air date for season 9 of Seaside Hotel yet, but it will be available to stream for PBS Wisconsin Passport members in January.
