- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK

Volume 1, Number 6
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
First airing - Sunday 10PM GMT - BBC Three and BBC HD simulcast
First Terrestrial Airing - Wednesday 9PM* GMT - BBC Two
Additional airings on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays on BBC Three
*If you're watching Torchwood on the Wednesday BBC 2 broadcast, note
these regional variations.
The 22 & 29 November broadcasts of Torchwood airs at 9PM GMT with the
BBC 2 Wales Digital - 9:10PM start time.
The official descriptions of episode 8 of Torchwood have changed the
title from "They Keep Killing ...", adding the word of who/what they
keep killing to the title. I'm leaving the corrected title off till
after the episode airs in the UK, as it strikes me as a bit too much
of a spoiler.
The BBC has put up their press releases with TV schedules through the
22nd of December. Torchwood is definitely airing each week through
the 17th (20 December on BBC Two). The schedules for the
Christmas/New Year season will be out on 7 December - we should learn
then if Torchwood will be airing on Christmas Eve or New Years Eve.
My suspicion is that the show will be rested those 2 weeks (with
plenty of repeats to keep viewers aware of it) in order to focus on
the special programming on BBC One and Two, like the Doctor Who
Christmas episode, the pilot episode of The Sarah Jane Smith
adventures, and Billie Piper's film.
BTW, if you know anyone who is trying to decide between watching
Torchwood on BBC Three or the new episodes of Lost on Sky One - both
shows repeat multiple times. Pick one (I'd suggest Torchwood) to see
Sunday at 10 and catch the other one later. It is odd seeing
discussions in web forums about the disaster of these two shows
premiering against each other, when the same forums have threads
about BBC Three and Sky One repeating their shows too many times.
