      December 22, 2007 - Vol 1, No 59
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      UK fans - we have a broadcast day/time for Torchwood Series 2 - Pre-
      watershed version. Thursdays at 7PM GMT on BBC Two from 17 January.
      Torchwood DeClassified (presumably with the language tamed down from
      the Series 1 versions) airs Thursdays at 7:50PM GMT. The Pre-
      watershed version will have edits to langauge, violence, and sexual
      content as needed. It will not be a *Family* version of the episodes,
      merely a version that can be aired at hours when younger viewers are

      We do *not* have a finalized day for the main version of Torchwood.
      It will be on BBC Two - either Sundays at 9PM starting 13 January or
      Wednesdays at 9PM starting 16 January. Most guesses are for
      Wednesdays, but there is no confirmation yet. BBC HD will air the
      episodes as well, probably at the same time as BBC Two unless a
      bigger HD event is airing on BBC One. BBC Three will be repeating the

      BBC America http://www.bbcamerica.com launches Series 2 of Torchwood
      on Saturday 26 January 2008 at 9PM Eastern. The early launch is due
      to Torchwood's status as BBC America's most successful show ever.
      Expect BBC America to make their edited version of Torchwood based
      off the uncut version of Torchwood on the guidelines that they used
      for Series 1. Do not expect the UK's pre-watershed version on BBC
      America. Essentially full length (but with some content edits)
      versions of the episodes will go on BBC America On Demand a few days
      after they air on BBC America.

      HD Net http://www.hd.net will have a New Years Day marathon of
      Torchwood Series 1. All 13 uncensored and unedited episodes in high
      definition. 1PM to 2AM Eastern/10AM to 11PM Pacific. HD Net will be
      airing Series 2, but the start date is unknown (probably at least 9
      days after BBC America).

      Ten HD (high definition version of Australia's Ten) removed Torchwood
      from its lineup shortly before the scheduled premiere. It is instead
      airing Journeyman, a US drama removed from the main Ten. Several of
      the shows on Ten HD are shows that have not aired yet on Ten, and
      these *new* shows probably have priority over *repeats* like
      Torchwood, which did air in its entirety on the main Ten (albeit the
      last 6 episodes aired at Midnight). Presumably Torchwood will get to
      air on Ten HD at a later date. UKTV Australia is still airing
      Torchwood, with episodes resuming in January after a Christmas/New
      Years break.

      Ztele http://www.ztele.com in Canada will air Torchwood Series 1 in
      French Mondays at 8PM, Wednesdays at 5PM, and Fridays at 10PM from 7
      January. Ztele HD will air the episodes in high definition. CBC
      http://www.cbc.ca/television (English language broadcaster) airs
      Combat on 4 January, then airs the final 2 episodes (Captain Jack
      Harkness and End Of Days) from 8 to 10PM on Sunday 6 January. CBC has
      not scheduled Series 2. With their sports committments (Hockey
      playoffs - April to June, Olympics - August), I would not be
      surprised if Series 2 of Torchwood aired on CBC in Fall 08 or later.

      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.
