I don't know about Boston, but back in the 1980s, when Boston's and
Brookline's cable systems were run by Cablevision, the Selectman who was
in charge of negotiations with Cablevision told me at one time that
Cablevision people floated the idea of eliminating Channel 11 from their
system. The Selectman pointed out to him that Channel 11 carried Dr.
Who at the time, and the biggest Dr. Who fan in Brookline was the person
who, among other hats he wore, was the town's Cable TV ombudsman and
staffed the Cable Monitoring Committee. My Selectman friend was
convinced that this was the reason Channel 11 was still on Brookline cable.
