The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
Torchwood broke ratings records for BBC Three with its premiere on
Sunday 22 October, with the channel's highest overnight figures ever
(and probably highest final viewership totals when the numbers come
out). Torchwood's main opposition was the final episode of the final
series of Prime Suspect on ITV 1.
Overnight ratings - Everything Changes - 2.378 million viewers
Overnight ratings - Day One - 2.328 million viewers
For a programme not on one of the 5 terrestial channels (the ones
you can see with an analogue tuner and an antenna), they were near
the top of all time broadcasts. Different reports claim that an
episode of Friends on Sky One had 2.8 million viewers in 2000 and
that a couple of sports events have done better.
BBC Three is repeating each episode an average of 6 times during the
week in case people miss the first airing. BBC Two will air the
first 2 episodes tonight (25 October) at 9PM BST (10PM for those in
mainland Europe who can get BBC Two).
The regular schedule for the series beginning 29 October:
Sunday 10PM - BBC Three and BBC HD simulcast - first airing of
Sunday late night - BBC Three Torchwood repeat, Torchwood De-
