- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
April 12, 2008 - Vol 2, No 14
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Due to a last minute schedule change, most of the UK did not get the
Pre-Watershed repeat of Torchwood episode 2-13 "Exit Wounds". It
aired on BBC Two Wales on Monday 7 April and BBC Two Scotland on
Wednesday 9 April. The rest of the BBC Two regions will now see the
Pre-Watershed version of this episode on Tuesday 15 April at 7PM BST.
It is the last repeat scheduled.
BBC HD http://www.bbc.co.uk/hd will begin a repeat run of Torchwood
Series 2 this Wednesday 16 April at 11PM BST. This will be the uncut
CANADA - HD Net Canada http://www.hd.net will present the uncut
versions of Torchwood to Canada for the first time. Like the US
version of HD Net, Canadians can expect to see the show uncut and
commercial free. You have to have a Canadian high definition cable or
satellite service to see this channel. Premieres Monday 14 April.
Episodes air at 7PM and 11PM EDT (4 and 8PM PDT, 8:30PM and 12:30AM
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.

The Polish version of BBC Entertainment's website now has a Torchwood

cannot find a premiere date yet.
Dubbed into Italian. Series 1 repeats.
No listings for repeats for the last 3 episodes yet, as they are
failing to put up the April listings for some reason.
