      Torchwood radio play - still online until Wednesday

      September 13, 2008 - Vol 2, No 36
      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 .

      Torchwood - "Lost Souls" - premiered on BBC Radio 4
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4 this past Wednesday. "Lost Souls" is a 45
      minute Torchwood episode starring the cast following the events of
      the Series 2 finale "Exit Wounds". If you have not seen "Exit
      Wounds", there will be spoilers. The episode remains available for
      listeners around the world at the Radio 4 website until Wednesday and
      there is a CD release. The episode can be downloaded for free, though
      it is not clear if the download is permanent or temporary.

      Canada - SPACE http://www.spacecast.com is airing Torchwood in 65
      minute timeslots. So make sure your recording device is scheduled to
      record Torchwood for 1 hour, 5 minutes instead of 1 hour. If you are
      in the Central and Mountain Time Zones and also plan to watch Doctor
      Who Series 4 on the CBC this fall, check your cable/satellite
      provider's channel lineup to make sure you have other regions of CBC.
      In those 2 time zones the 65 minute Torchwood broadcast on SPACE will
      overlap Doctor Who on CBC (9PM all time zones), and neither show has
      a repeat slot. Satellite customers should be fine and it is believed
      that most digital cable subscribers have multiple CBCs too, but the
      time to check your lineup is now, as opposed to the 19th of
      September. The conflict ends on 24 October when the series 2 finale

      UK - BBC HD http://www.bbc.co.uk/hd begins an encore of the Pre-
      Watershed Versions of Series 2 next Saturday at 7:35PM BST. These
      episodes have some sex, language, and violence removed, as they were
      intended for BBC Two pre-watershed viewing.

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

      BBC Radio 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4
      Listen again on Radio 4's website until Wednesday - "Lost Souls"
      (world premiere). Looks like there is a download option as well -
      also until Wednesday.
      45 minute audio Torchwood story set after the events of "Exit
      Wounds". The scientists at CERN are preparing to recreate the
      aftereffects of the Big Bang in a controlled experiment. Events occur
      to bring the Torchwood team onto the scene.
