The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Canada - French station Ztele is starting their premiere of the
French language version of Torchwood Series 2 (in High Definition and
Standard Definition). Many airings a week starting Monday. Series 2
has previously aired in English in standard definition (SPACE) and is
currently premiering in High Definition (HD Net Canada).
Oh dear. Both HD Net Canada and Ztele are premiering Series 2
episodes at 8PM Eastern on Mondays. Just what Canadians need - you
wait for months for a station airing Torchwood in HD and both the
English and French language HD versions come around at once.
Thankfully both stations repeat (Ztele repeats a lot), so you can
blow off one or both of those stations in the Monday 8PM slot and
still see both versions of Torchwood.
