- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK

The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
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. 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 started Torchwood on August 27 while HD Net
starts Torchwood on September 17. The HD Net broadcast will be the
complete unedited episodes, while BBC America will edit for time. BBC
America On Demand is currently running a 35 minute section of
Torchwood episode 1 "Everything Changes". The full episode will not
go up until September 10, 2 days after BBC America's edited version.
BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree repeats Torchwood Series 1
starting Friday 14 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.
