      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

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

      We are still awaiting a date for the premiere of the BBC Radio 4
      episode of Torchwood. It is assumed the episode will air later this
      summer when the reactor that the story ties into is turned on.

      Greece - Skai http://www.skai.gr premieres Torchwood this Thursday at
      11PM EET.

      Canada - SPACE http://www.spacecast.com will give Torchwood Series 2
      a two hour premiere on Friday 8 August at 9PM EDT (6PM PDT, 10:30PM
      Newfoundland). The regular timeslot will be Fridays at 10PM EDT (7PM
      PDT, 11:30PM Newfoundland). There will probably be a repeat timeslot
      for the episodes, but it has not been disclosed yet. SPACE does not
      have the English language standard definition rights to Series 1 -
      they are still held by CBC TV.

      Germany RTL 2 http://www.rtl2.de is expected to bring Torchwood to
      Germany in Spring 2009.

      Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-
      owner@yahoogroups.com , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.

      Torchwood on the schedule. If anybody knows Korean ...
