The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
USA - Torchwood Series 2 concludes on BBC America
http://www.bbcamerica.com tonight with "Exit Wounds" at 9PM,
Midnight, and 3AM Eastern (6PM, 9PM, and Midnight Pacific). The last
3 episodes air Sunday starting at 1PM EDT/10AM PDT. Some fans will be
watching the episodes uncut on HD Net USA http://www.hd.net , which
will not air Exit Wounds until Monday May 5.
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-
firstname.lastname@example.org , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.

The Polish version of BBC Entertainment's website now has a Torchwood
page listing all the Series 1 episodes (in English and Polish). I
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.
