Torchwood This Week - August 18, 2007
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK

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
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
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.
