Torchwood This Week - June 28, 2008
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
June 28, 2008 - Vol 2, No 25
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
ASIA - BBC Entertainment Asia http://asia.bbcentertainment.com
premieres Torchwood on Monday 7 July at 7:05PM, with various repeats
through the week.
New Zealand - TV2 http://www.tvnz.co.nz finally premieres Torchwood
on Wednesday 9 July at 10:30PM. They don't have it on their website,
but various TV listings have uncovered it.
Australia - FOXTEL is launching a BBC HD channel as one of their new
HD services this Sunday. Torchwood will be heavily featured, probably
premiering in the next few days. Wouldn't it be lovely if they had
some sort of schedule somewhere so that the people who had access to
the channel had any clue what shows were airing when? Please - make
this paragraph out of date. Rush some proper information out. Not
just for BBC HD - there does not seem to be information for any of
the new BBC HD channels. It's a week later, and I'm still waiting.
