      February 2, 2008 - Vol 2, No 5
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho .

      This Week In Doctor Who and Torchwood This Week will not be published
      on the 16th of February, as I will be at the Gallifrey One convention
      http://www.gallifreyone.com/gallifrey.php that weekend. The editions
      for the 9th of February will be for both weeks. Regular service will
      resume on the 23rd.

      Two episodes of Torchwood will premiere on Wednesday 13 February.
      Look at the schedule:

      9PM GMT - BBC Two, BBC HD - 2-05 "Adam" (premiere)
      9:50PM GMT - BBC Three - 2-06 "Reset" (premiere, 55 minute time slot)
      10PM GMT - BBC HD - 2-06 "Reset"
      "Adam" will not air on BBC Three that night. It looks like your only
      chances to see Adam uncut during Torchwood's first run are to catch
      it at 9PM or on your computer through the BBC's iPlayer.

      One of the BBC's practices in recent years is to switch premieres of
      shows from BBC One or Two to BBC Three or Four at some point during
      the run. When this happens episodes continue to air one per week on
      BBC One or Two, and usually the final episode will premiere on BBC
      One or Two. Viewers with digital get to see some episodes early with
      BBC Three or Four, but all of the episodes will air on the
      Terrestrial channel. We do not know at this time if only Reset will
      premiere on BBC Three, or if more Torchwood episodes will get this

      The premiere of To The Last Man, Episode 3 of Torchwood Series 2,
      averaged 3.2 million overnight viewers on BBC Two on 30 January. Top
      BBC Two show for the night.

      The Northern Ireland version of BBC Two is not airing the Pre-
      Watershed repeats of Torchwood and Torchwood DeClassified. BBC Two
      Northern Ireland airs regional programming until 8PM on Thursdays. No
      evidence so far of a delayed showing at a later date - will let you
      know if it happens. Viewers who can see a BBC Two from a different
      region either over the air, via Sky Digital, or via certain Digital
      Cable companies will still be able to see the Pre-Watershed Torchwood
      and DeClassified. Just remember to tune to a version of BBC Two that
      is airing the programming. All regions and variants are getting the
      full episodes on BBC Two and BBC HD and BBC Three on Wednesday nights.

      BBC Two Scotland did not air the Pre-Watershed repeats of Torchwood
      and Torchwood DeClassified episodes 2 and 3 due to the same regional
      variation issue. However, BBC Two Scotland has scheduled Pre-
      Watershed episode 2-04 "Meat" and its DeClassified installment on
      Tuesday 12 February at 7PM GMT. Presumably viewers of BBC Two
      Scotland will get the Pre-Watershed Torchwood episodes on Tuesdays
      from this point forward, 5 days after the rest of the UK. It also
      gives hope that BBC Northern Ireland may schedule the Pre-Watershed
      version at some point.

      USA - BBC America On Demand will start putting the Torchwood Series 2
      episodes on their service from 4 February. 2 episodes that day, then
      1 per week thereafter. Episodes are full length (not cut for time
      like the BBC America broadcast), though certain language, violence,
      or nudity cut for broadcast will be cut on this version too.

      USA - If you have HD Net http://www.hd.net , Torchwood Series 2
      Commercial Free and Uncut is coming Monday 11 February - 7PM, 10PM,
      and 1AM EST (4PM, 7PM, and 10PM PST). No Wednesday showings this time
      around, it seems. Whether or not you watch Torchwood on BBC America,
      watch the HD Net version if you have the channel. HD Net is available
      in the high definition programming packages for DirecTV, Dish
      Network, and good Digital Cable companies (aka - most Comcast systems
      do not have the channel yet - my sympathies, I had Comcast for 4

      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.
