Torchwood This Week - October 24/25, 2008
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
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
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-
email@example.com , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.
