      Torchwood This Week
      January 24, 2009 - Vol 3, No 4
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Quiet week for Torchwood scheduling. There, that line usually results
      in interesting stuff happening in the next day or two.

      USA - BBC America is planning to premiere Torchwood: Children Of
      Earth (Series 3) on the same 5 days that the episodes air on BBC One
      in the UK. However, the episodes may premiere in the UK and US as
      late as June or July.

      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.

      Canada - HD Net Canada http://www.hd.net will begin airing Series 2
      episodes uncut on Monday 26 January at 8PM EST/5PM PST/9:30PM
      Newfoundland. This is the first HD airing for the episodes in Canada.
      The episodes should look just like they did when HD Net in the USA
      aired them last year.

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

      Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-

      minute time slot.
      Sunday 10PM EST (7PM PST, 11:30PM Newfoundland) 2-13 "Exit Wounds"
      1 February pre-empted by movie. Is this just Super Bowl counter-
      programming or is Torchwood taking a break from the schedule. The
      answer is almost surely in the Space forums, which I cannot get to
      because the robotic system for approving new members is glitching.
      Strong suggestion to website makers - always make certain there is
      *some* way to e-mail a person in case your automated system has bugs.
