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

      A quiet week. The only Torchwood schedule development is that the HD
      Net US listing of Torchwood in December turned out to be an error.
      For now at least, Torchwood is off HD Net US (BBC America has the
      exclusive HD rights to Torchwood Series 3 in the USA). HD Net Canada
      is still airing Series 1 of Torchwood.

      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.
