TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
by Benjamin F. Elliott

Volume 1, Number 32
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
Torchwood premieres in Australia this Monday. The SFSA
notes that Network Ten (available to most
Australians) and Southern Cross Ten (affiliate of Ten with some
variations from another channel) will simulcast Torchwood Mondays at
9:40PM, reaching the vast majority of the population. It doesn't look
like Torchwood is airing on any of the other affiliates that run
Ten's programming - if it is, pass the word please.
TEN is airing Torchwood in a 70 minute timeslot. While this means
more commercials, it also means the episodes should not be shortened
for time! Torchwood episodes range from 46 minutes, 45 seconds to 52
minutes, 49 seconds.
While not Torchwood, UK readers will want to pay attention to Doctor
Who tonight, as John Barrowman (Captain Jack) is in the next 3 Doctor
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
Next week's edition will go out on Friday June 22nd. It will return
to Saturdays on June 30th.
