If you're the type that tries to keep track of those perplexing stop-and-start cable schedules, you'll know December tis NOT the season for summer's sci-fi larks Eureka and Warehouse 13 to be airing new episodes. But Syfy programmers are playing Santa Tuesday night, and their gift is a back-to-back package of holiday-themed special originals of the channel's whimsical hit series. It's a great idea, because these are Syfy's most festive series anyway, so why not bring them back to spread a little cheer.

Matt Frewer, Eureka
Within the strange, genius-populated little Northwestern town at the heart of Sci Fi Channel's Eureka (Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET) resides Jim Taggart, the off-center "dogcatcher" who specializes in the critters, creepies and crawlies born of the burg's bizarre scientific experiments.

Playing U.S. Marshal Jack Carter, through whom viewers experience this strange (and soon about to become stranger) world, is Colin Ferguson, whose alter ego has little idea that this quick pass through town, with a temperamental teenage daughter in tow, will turn into a very "extended" stay.

Question: Can you tell me any details about the old CBS sitcom Doctor, Doctor? It was with Matt Frewer, the guy who also played on ABC's Max Headroom. Thanks!
Answer: That I can, Matt. After, as you say, Frewer starred in the short-lived but fascinating Max Headroom in 1987, he donned a white coat to play Dr. Mike Stratford on the more traditional sitcom Doctor, Doctor, which debuted on CBS in June 1989.
A partner in a Providence, R.I., medical practice, Mike was a little wacky but had a big heart. Unfortunately for him, his more business-minded partners (Julius Carry, Beau Gravitte, Maureen Mueller) weren't quote so altruistic, which made for all sorts of comic situations.
Adding to the zany antics was Mike's other line of work, giving medical advice on a morning TV show, his gay brother, and a psychiatrist w
