      TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
      by Benjamin F. Elliott
      August 18, 2007
      Volume 1, Number 41
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.

      Torchwood will air on the People + Arts cable/satellite station for
      Mexico, Latin America, and South America. It starts on 28 August.
      People + Arts also aired Doctor Who in Spanish. They are in the
      middle of redoing their website - hopefully there will be broadcast
      times available by next week.

      Mexican viewers with Canal 22 will note that they actually aired
      Cyberwoman last week due to a pre-emption in an earlier week. Canal
      22 also pre-empts Torchwood this week. I don't know when the next
      episode will air.

      BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com has put up its schedule for the
      weekend of Torchwood's launch (also the weekend of Doctor Who Series
      2 launch). Torchwood's broadcast times (adjust for local time in
      Central, Mountain, Alaska, and Hawaii):
      Saturday 8 September:
      9PM and Midnight EDT (6PM and 9PM PDT)
      Sunday 9 September:
      5PM EDT (2PM PDT)

      For future weeks, Torchwood will have a Saturday afternoon rerun of
      last week's installment, last week's installment airing at 8PM and
      11PM Eastern, a new episode airing at 9PM and Midnight Eastern, with
      that episode repeating once or twice on Sunday. This being BBC
      America, the schedule could change at any time, and expect at least
      one or two marathons of episodes at some point down the road.

      BBC America On Demand starts Torchwood on August 27 while HD Net
      starts Torchwood on September 17. The On Demand and HD Net broadcast
      will be the complete unedited episodes, while BBC America will edit
      for time.

      Digiguide users have spotted a notice that BBC Three
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree plans to repeat Torchwood Series 1
      starting Friday 7 September at 9PM. This should lead up to the early
      2008 start of Series 2 on BBC Two.

      Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho .

      I am trying to find websites and station information for some of the
      more elusive Torchwood sales. If you spot it airing or getting ready
      to air in your country, and I've missed it, let me know so it gets
      into the next edition and more fans get informed.
