      TWIDW: Torchwood This Week
      January 10, 2009 - Vol 3, No 2
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Australia - it looks like UKTV Australia will premiere Series 2 on
      Tuesday 3 February, using the timeslots where they currently repeat
      Series 1. If you were not able to see Series 2 in 2008 because you
      could not get Ten's HD station, hopefully it will be a bit easier to
      get UKTV.

      UK - BBC HD begins a late night repeat of Series 2 Tuesdays at 11PM
      starting on the 13th. This is probably the uncut versions of Series
      2. BBC HD reran the Pre-Watershed versions of Series 2 this past fall
      in an early evening slot.

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