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

      Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho .

      Congratulations to Torchwood. Ratings estimates for 16 January had
      Torchwood's Series 2 premiere getting 3.7 million viewers in the
      overnight charts on BBC Two, BBC Two's best performance for that day.

      BBC Radio Wales http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/radiowales aired the first
      episode of Torchwood All Access today, an occasional behind the
      scenes interview show about Torchwood akin to Radio Wales' "Doctor
      Who Back In Time". Like that show, it was hosted by Julian Carey. The
      column has gone out after the episode was due to air, but you can
      hear it through the listen again feature on the Radio Wales website
      for the next 7 days.

      For most UK residents, here is how the Torchwood schedule will work
      out in coming days:
      Wednesday 23 January 7PM GMT BBC Two - Torchwood Series 2 Episode 1
      Pre-Watershed (special day)
      Wednesday 23 January 7:50PM GMT BBC Two - Torchwood DeClassified
      Series 2 Episode 1 (special day)
      Wednesday 23 January 9PM GMT BBC Two/BBC HD - Torchwood Series 2
      Episode 2 (regular day and time)
      Wednesday 23 January 11:25PM GMT BBC Three - Torchwood Series 2
      Episode 2 (start time is not fixed, will bounce around in 11PM hour
      week to week)
      Thursday 24 January 7PM GMT BBC Two - Torchwood Series 2 Episode 2
      Pre-Watershed (regular day and time)
      Thursday 24 January 7:50PM GMT BBC Two - Torchwood DeClassified
      Series 2 Episode 2 (regular day and time)
      Saturday 26 January 7:55PM GMT BBC HD - Torchwood Series 2 Episodes 1
      and 2 (see below)

      Scotland and Northern Ireland versions of BBC Two will NOT air the
      Pre-Watershed repeat of Torchwood and Torchwood DeClassified with the
      network beginning with episode 2 (Sleeper). Both BBC Two variants are
      airing regional programming until 8PM on Thursdays. Viewers in these
      regions who can see a BBC Two from a different region or who have Sky
      Digital (look in the upper regions of the 900s for various BBC Twos
      from the UK in your case) will still be able to see the Pre-Watershed
      Torchwood and DeClassified. It is not known at this time how long
      Scotland and Northern Ireland will be waiting for these programmes.
      All regions and variants are getting the full episodes on BBC Two and
      BBC HD and BBC Three on Wednesday nights. Episode 1 of Torchwood Pre-
      Watershed will air in Scotland and Northern Ireland on 23 January due
      to it being a Wednesday and no regional opt out scheduled.

      BBC HD http://www.bbc.co.uk/hd has the first 2 Series 2 episodes of
      Torchwood scheduled to repeat on Saturday 26 January at 7:55PM and
      8:45PM respectively. Since these times are before 9PM (UK Watershed)
      and BBC HD is not simulcasting the Pre-Watershed showings on BBC Two
      on the 23rd and 24th, my guess is that these are Pre-Watershed
      versions, just in HD.

      Viewers in the USA have 1 more week to wait for Series 2. January 26
      on BBC America (with time and content edits). February 11 on HD Net
      (commercial free, uncut, even if you watch the BBC America version -
      watch this one too if you have HD Net).

      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-
      owner@yahoogroups.com , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.
