      Volume 1, Number 38
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.

      Torchwood premieres in Spain this weekend. Late Sundays at 1AM on
      Cuatro. 1 episode per week.

      Seems I was slightly mistaken on the Mexican listings. Canal 22 is
      not airing 2 episodes per week. They are breaking episodes into 2
      parts. 30 minutes Monday, with the concluding 30 minutes Wednesday.

      US readers with Digital Cable - if you have BBC America On Demand,
      you are getting Torchwood earlier than the rest of us. The
      documentary Welcome To Torchwood and Torchwood episode 1 (Everything
      Changes) go on the BBC America On Demand service on Monday 27 August.
      Expect further episodes to pop up once a week (so - Day One on
      September 3, Ghost Machine on September 10, etc).

      BBC America's On Demand service usually holds 4 episodes at a time
      before the earlier episodes drop off. It is commercial free. It also
      has a tendency to air shows unedited that are airing edited on the
      main channel. Life On Mars Series 1 was the full 58 minutes On Demand
      versus 45 1/2 minutes on the TV channel. It will be interesting to
      see if On Demand gets a complete (or at least more complete) version
      of the Torchwood episodes.

      To get BBC America On Demand, you need to a) have BBC America on your
      system, b) be subscribed to Digital Cable, and c) your cable system
      needs to have signed up for it. DirecTV and Dish Network subscribers
      are out of luck - the On Demand service isn't available on satellite
      at this time. If you don't get On Demand, you can join me waiting for
      its arrival on Saturday 8 September on the BBC America TV channel.

      BBC America (so far at least) has only put shows On Demand that they
      air in the US first, so don't expect Doctor Who to pop up there.

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

      I am trying to find websites and station information for some of the
      more elusive Torchwood sales. If you spot it airing or getting ready
      to air in your country, and I've missed it, let me know so it gets
      into the next edition and more fans get informed.
