Germany - RTL 2 has bought Doctor Who for their Wednesday night
schedule. Expected to be 10PM or later. No premiere date yet.
South Korea - The Skylife satellite service began airing Torchwood on
7 July. We do not know what channel or what time the show is on.

Torchwood has begun airing on the Skylife service. Alas, the English
language website does not do schedules. The Korean language website
is harder to search than KBS (which was hard). I have not found
Torchwood on the schedule. If anybody knows Korean ...
RTL2 has bought Torchwood for the German market. Premiere date
unknown. Looks like Wednesday nights at 10PM or later.
