      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com launches Series 2 of Torchwood
      on Saturday 26 January 2008 at 9PM Eastern, a date expected to be
      very soon after the UK premiere of the new series. The early launch
      is due to Torchwood's status as BBC America's most successful show
      ever. Series 1 concludes tonight at 9PM and Midnight Eastern (6PM and
      9PM Pacific) with End Of Days. BBC America is repeating Series 1 on
      Saturdays starting 8 December - 2 episodes per weekend, covering the
      7 weeks before the Series 2 launch.

      BBC America On Demand will take down the Torchwood Series 1 episodes
      from the service on Monday 17 December. Captain Jack Harkness will
      only be up for 3 weeks and End Of Days up for 2 weeks, instead of the
      usual 4. This is standard with BBC America shows - they leave the on
      demand service shortly after the current run of new episodes ends.
      Series 2 will likely start going up on Monday 28 January.

      UKTV Australia will launch Torchwood on Tuesday 11 December at 8:30PM
      AEDT. If you missed Torchwood on Ten or its regional variants, you
      get another chance to tune in.

      Ten HD (a new version of Ten for high definition TVs that launches in
      December) will present Torchwood free to air for high definition TVs
      Thursdays at 9:30PM from 20 December. It is part of a Thursday lineup
      that deviates from Ten's regular schedule.

      BBC HD http://www.bbc.co.uk/hd is officially launching today after
      over a year of being in a test phase. Expect an increase in
      programming in coming weeks. As a show made in high-definition,
      Torchwood Series 2 should air on this station around the same time it
      airs on BBC Two. BBC HD aired Torchwood Series 1 several times during
      the station's test run.

      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.
