Torchwood This Week - December 29, 2007
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
December 29, 2007 - Vol 1, No 60
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
2007 comes to a close. The second series of Torchwood is on the
horizon for the UK and US. Here's hoping for a great 2008.
Netherlands - SciFi Channel Netherlands http://www.sci-fi.tv/nl has
picked up Torchwood, starting 8 January 2008 at 9:30PM CET with
Canada - CBC airs episode 11 "Combat" this coming Friday at 9PM
(9:30PM Newfoundland), 4 weeks after the last episode. Remember that
episodes 12 and 13 (Captain Jack Harkness/End Of Days) will air back
to back on *Sunday* 6 January at 8PM (8:30PM Newfoundland) to
complete Series 1. No airdate for Series 2 yet.
We do *not* have a finalized day for the main version of Torchwood.
It will be on BBC Two - either Sundays at 9PM starting 13 January or
Wednesdays at 9PM starting 16 January. Most guesses are for
Wednesdays, but there is no confirmation yet. BBC HD will air the
episodes as well, probably at the same time as BBC Two unless a
bigger HD event is airing on BBC One. BBC Three will be repeating the
HD Net http://www.hd.net will have a New Years Day marathon of
Torchwood Series 1. All 13 uncensored and unedited episodes in high
definition. 1PM to 2AM Eastern/10AM to 11PM Pacific. HD Net will be
airing Series 2, but the start date is unknown (probably at least 9
days after BBC America).
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-
