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

      Coming in 2009, the 5 episode 3rd series of Torchwood. Premiering
      across one week on BBC One. A week that has not been decided on yet.

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

      There will be major changes to This Week In Doctor Who starting with
      the January 3, 2009 edition. I am still considering various tweaks,
      but here is the tentative plan to make everything easier to use in
      2009. I am trying a bit of branding and breaking down information to
      simplify efforts to find what you want. Should be particularly useful
      if you like to clip a bit to forward somewhere else (which does
      happen). Take a look:

      Column 1 - TWIDW: This Week In Doctor Who - the classic column. No
      more Sarah Jane listings. Listings for North and South America
      (essentially the Western Hemisphere) removed. Listings for stations
      with rights to Doctor Who that aren't airing the show right now -

      Column 2 - TWIDW: Western Hemisphere (title may change) - everything
      Doctor Who from North and South America, inclduing almost all the PBS
      listings. Listings for PBS stations that aren't airing the show right
      now - removed.

      Column 3 - TWIDW: The Sarah Jane Schedules (premiere) - The Sarah
      Jane Adventures schedules all together and easy to read. Also - all
      the podcasts. Also - the listings for Doctor Who stations not
      currently airing the show that still have rights (all over the world,
      including PBS). If the K9 series ever gets finished and reaches the
      airwaves, it will be here. Essentially the catch-all column that can
      morph into a proper Sarah Jane column as the show's influence spreads
      around the globe.

      Column 4 - TWIDW: Torchwood This Week - apart from adding the TWIDW
      branding, this column stays the same.

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