      It was expected, but now official about the day and time. At least
      for the 16th, Torchwood Series 2 Premiere Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang will
      air at the same time in all BBC Two regions (BBC Two Wales usually
      aired Torchwood later during Series 1, with 2 Wales Digital airing
      Torchwood later still - both regions are at the network time for now).

      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.

      Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-
