Torchwood This Week - September 29, 2007
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK

Volume 1, Number 47
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
The French premiere date for Torchwood - Friday 12 October at 8:50PM
on NRJ 12.
CBC TV Canada http://www.cbc.ca/television premieres Torchwood this
Friday October 5 at 9PM all time zones (9:30PM Newfoundland).
BTW, it has largely escaped public notice, but BBC America
http://www.bbcamerica.com ran a blink and you miss it ad on Wednesday
declaring "BBC America HD - coming in 2008". With the changeover to
digital and the high percentage of digital TVs being widescreen (many
but not all of them high definition TVs), more and more cable
networks are announcing HD versions of their stations. Torchwood is
produced as an HD show, so it should look fine on BBC America HD (no
idea how this affects HD Net getting the HD versions of Torchwood
commercial free and with no content edits). Most of the shows on BBC
America were made in either HD or a standard definition widescreen
format (ex: Doctor Who).
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.
