Torchwood This Week - November 3, 2007
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
by Benjamin F. Elliott
November 3, 2007
Volume 1, Number 52
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
French station NRJ 12 concludes its first run of Torchwood episodes
this Friday at 8:45PM (Captain Jack Harkness and End Of Days,
followed by a repeat). NRJ is airing lots of repeats through their
schedule for the time being.
BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com will have a mini-marathon of
Torchwood episodes on Sunday 25 November (Thanksgiving weekend),
along with their many airings per week. Series 1 concludes on 1
December at 9PM and Midnight Eastern (6PM and 9PM Pacific) with End
Of Days. BBC America is under new management, but last year they ran
few new shows in December, with lots of marathons of shows that
performed well for them in 2006. There could be Torchwood and Doctor
Who marathons in the weeks before the start of 2008. BBC America will
air Series 2, but the start date is unknown.
CBC TV http://www.cbc.ca/television has put up its December schedule.
Much less Christmas programming than usual if it is to be believed.
Torchwood airs with no pre-emptions and concludes its first series on
Friday 28 December at 9PM (9:30PM Newfoundland).
BBC Three http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree is pre-empted Torchwood on 9
November for Celebrity Scissorhands. Repeats return 16 November.
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.
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-
