The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
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
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.

is harder to search than KBS (which was hard). I have not found
