      October 4, 2008 - Vol 2, No 39
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

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

      New Zealand - TVNZ's TV2 http://www.tvnz.co.nz is going straight into
      Torchwood series 2 this Wednesday, having finished Series 1 last
      Wednesday. Torchwood is still on in New Zealand.

      Canada - SPACE http://www.spacecast.com is airing Torchwood in 65
      minute timeslots. So make sure your recording device is scheduled to
      record Torchwood for 1 hour, 5 minutes instead of 1 hour. If you are
      in the Central and Mountain Time Zones and also plan to watch Doctor
      Who Series 4 on the CBC, check your cable/satellite provider's
      channel lineup to make sure you have other regions of CBC. In those 2
      time zones the 65 minute Torchwood broadcast on SPACE will overlap
      Doctor Who on CBC (9PM all time zones), and neither show has a repeat
      slot. Satellite customers should be fine and it is believed that most
      digital cable subscribers have multiple CBCs too, but the time to
      check your lineup is now, as opposed to the 19th of September. The
      conflict ends on 24 October when the series 2 finale airs.

      SCANDANAVIA - the BBC Press Office http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice
      announced Wednesday that Scandanavia will see the launch of a new set
      of BBC channels in December. BBC Entertainment Scandanavia will
      replace BBC Prime in the country and will likely air Doctor Who and
      Torchwood. BBC HD will also launch in Scandanavia and could also air
      Torchwood. The BBC will launch the new suite of channels and retire
      BBC Prime in all of the Nordic countries - it is not clear if this
      will happen simultaneously or if it will be just one Nordic country
      at a time. Each country is supposed to get their own version of these
      channels. BBC Prime continues for now in other countries, though the
      eventual plan is to replace it altogether will lots of localized BBC
