      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.

      Fans from Antipodean New Zealand
