      October 24/25, 2008 - Vol 2, No 42
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Note - due to technical issues, This Week In Doctor Who and Torchwood
      This Week are going out a day early, before the usual final editing
      and corrections. Unavoidable issue. Normal service should resume next
      week. But one thing - Canadians, check out the listing for SPACE!
      Torchwood Series 2 is getting a repeat run in November that will
      *not* conflict with Doctor Who!

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

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