Torchwood This Week - October 6, 2007
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
by Benjamin F. Elliott

Volume 1, Number 48
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
The French premiere date for Torchwood - Friday 12 October at 8:50PM
on NRJ 12. It will start with a 3 episode marathon - French versions
of Everything Changes, Day One, and Cyberwoman. Ghost Machine is
skipped for now. Expect edits to remove bloodshed - NRJ 12 had
Everything Changes streaming online in the clear for a while and I
spotted 2 cases where scenes were trimmed by a second or two to
remove blood or a bullet entering a forehead.
BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com has added more repeats for
Torchwood and Doctor Who to fill holes left by a show being pulled
and shows that will repeat less. BBC America's schedule is subject to
change at short notice.
BBC HD http://www.bbc.co.uk/hd begins a repeat run of Torchwood
tonight (6 October). 2 episodes Saturdays at 9PM BST.
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
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.
