      TORCHWOOD TWO WEEKS
      February 9 and 16, 2008 - Vol 2, No 6
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.

      Welcome to this special edition of Torchwood This Week. This Week In
      Doctor Who and Torchwood This Week will not be published on the 16th
      of February, as I will be at the Gallifrey One convention in Los
      Angeles, CA http://www.gallifreyone.com/gallifrey.php that weekend.
      Hopefully the hybrid versions of the columns coming out today will
      help tide everybody over till regular service resumes on the 23rd.
      And if you are going to Gallifrey, see you there.

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

      Poland - BBC Entertainment http://poland.bbcentertainment.com now
      lists Torchwood as a current show and gives it a webpage. Their
      schedule information only goes to the 16th, and Torchwood is not
      scheduled to air before that date.

      UK viewers of Torchwood get to have some fun keeping track of the
      schedule. Most of the confusion will be if you live in Scotland or
      Northern Ireland.

      Tuesday 12 February 7PM - BBC Two Scotland begins airing the Pre-
      Watershed Torchwood episodes that the rest of the UK (except Northern
      Ireland) is getting 5 days earlier.
      Wednesday 13 February 9PM - BBC Two (all regions) and BBC HD
      simulcast the premiere of Series 2, Episode 5 (Adam)
      Wednesday 13 February 9:50PM - BBC Three and BBC HD simulcast the
      premiere of Series 2, Episode 6 (Reset). Note the channel change from
      Two to Three.
      Thursday 14 February 7PM - BBC Two (except Scotland and Northern
      Ireland) gets the Pre-Watershed broadcast of Adam. BBC Two Scotland
      airs it Tuesday 19 February 7PM.
      Saturday 16 February 8:10PM - BBC HD airs Pre-Watershed broadcast of
      Adam.
      Wednesday 20 February 9PM - BBC Two (except Northern Ireland) and BBC
      HD simulcast Reset. BBC Two Northern Ireland is airing an Irish
      Awards show. This is probably a one time pre-emption.
      Wednesday 20 February 9:50PM - BBC Two (except Northern Ireland) airs
      an episode of Torchwood DeClassified right after a new Torchwood for
      the first time. BBC HD does not air this.
      Wednesday 20 February 10PM - BBC Three and BBC HD simulcast the
      premiere of Series 2, Episode 7 (Dead Man Walking). Starts 10 minutes
      later than last week's BBC Three episode.
      Thursday 21 February 7PM - BBC Two (except Scotland and Northern
      Ireland) gets the Pre-Watershed broadcast of Reset.
      Thursday 21 February 9PM - BBC Two Northern Ireland airs Reset and
      the DeClassified episode that aired on Wednesday in the rest of the
      UK.
      Saturday 23 February 8:10PM - BBC HD airs Pre-Watershed broadcast of
      Reset.

      It is unknown how many weeks BBC Three will get to premiere Torchwood
      early.

      USA - HDNet US http://www.hd.net begins their commercial free, uncut,
      1080i presentation of Torchwood Series 2 this Monday. 7PM, 10PM, and
      1AM EST (4PM, 7PM, and 10PM PST). Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is the first
      episode.

      For those without HDNet, remember BBC America's
      http://www.bbcamerica.com run of the episodes (Saturdays 9PM and
      Midnight EST, various repeats).

      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-
