Off Topic Correction- Farscape is Australian made, USA Funded series
- Thanks to series like Farscape, the talents of some australain and
New Zealand Actors were allowed to be shown, as their career profiles
lead to other US based SF Series.
Checking with The IMDB the Series is listed as Australia, US
But if you check the priofiles of the many actors in the series, you
will Find Ben Bowder [USA] now appears in SG1 seasons 9, 10
Claudia Black [AUStralia] now apperas in SG1 Season 9, 10
Just to list a couple of the actors,
The Film Studios were FOX, but based near the sunny Gold Coast of
Australia where most of the Hit show cast were from except for
Jonathon Hardy [Rigel] was a New Zealander [by Birth, but Austalian
for much of his recent acting Career].
Appologies for OFF Topic Messsage contirbution, but just wanted to
indicate a NEw Zealand Fan of the Torchwood series is lurking,
despite the series not yet been screen in Ne wZealand due to license
and availability restrictions of the main TV Broadcaster having a
strangle hold on the screening rights of the series.
The Screening rights for Dr Who [ David Tennant\ in New Zealand are
held by Prime Tv, a subsidaiary of the New Zealand SkyTV network.
So unfortunately, Television New Zealand TVNZ has not broadcst the
Torchwood series yet, probably due to the second series of Dr WHo
having not yet introduced Captain Jack yet [ Runaway Bride only
screeened a couple of weeks ago] and Season 3 has some episodes to
run before story / plot lines alolow the fan public to catch up with
this series and all its glory.
Thanks to the internet, DR WHo Fans have seen advance episodes of
Torchwood and found it to be rather enjoyable, if not for some of the
episodes being a little surreal ;-))
Only time will tell as to when the wider NZ public will see Torchwood
or will the DVD series arrive before the series is screened in New
Zeland .. would not be the first SF series to have that occur to in
recent times - BSG, SG1: s10, SG:Atlantis, Surface.
