      TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
      March 1, 2008 - Vol 2, No 8
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      BBC Three (with a BBC HD simulcast) is getting the episodes first at
      the moment, one week before the primary broadcast on BBC Two. This
      may change for the final episodes. BBC Two will air episode 10 on
      Wednesday 19 March, then episode 11 on Friday 21 March (2 days after
      episode 11 airs on BBC Three). This would allow BBC Two to air the
      last 2 episodes on Wednesday 26 March and 2 April, possibly before
      BBC Three.

      Basically:
      Saturdays 8:40PM - BBC HD - repeat of the previous Thursday's BBC Two
      pre-watershed episode (was 8:10PM in previous weeks)
      Tuesdays 7PM - BBC Two Scotland only - Torchwood pre-watershed, 5
      days after it aired on the rest of BBC Two
      Tuesdays 7:50PM - BBC Two Scotland only - Torchwood DeClassified
      Wednesdays 9PM - BBC Two all regions and BBC HD - Torchwood (main
      unedited airing) (Northern Ireland is back with the network from this
      week after last week's exception)
      Wednesdays 9:50PM - BBC Three and BBC HD - Torchwood - premiere of
      the next episode
      Thursdays 7PM - BBC Two (except Scotland and Northern Ireland) -
      Torchwood pre-watershed version of the Wednesday BBC Two episode
      Thursdays 7:50PM - BBC Two (except Scotland and Northern Ireland) -
      Torchwood DeClassified
      Friday 21 March 9PM - BBC Two - catchup to BBC Three episode.

      Since the UK and the USA airings seem so close together, it is worth
      reminding people of the time lags that do exist so UK and USA fans
      don't accidentally spoil big plot twists that they thought their
      compatriots knew about.

      Right now - new episodes - Wednesdays 9:50PM on BBC Three and BBC HD
      (at least the next two episodes)
      Most of the UK see it - 7 days later - Wednesdays 9PM on BBC Two and
      BBC HD
      Pre-Watershed Viewers - 8 days later - Thursdays 7PM on BBC Two (not
      in Northern Ireland, 5 days after that in Scotland)
      BBC America Viewers - 17 days after BBC Three, 10 days after BBC Two -
      Saturdays 9PM Eastern on BBC America
      BBC America On Demand Viewers - 19 days after BBC Three, 12 days
      after BBC Two
      HD Net USA Viewers - 33 days after BBC Three, 26 days after BBC Two,
      16 days after BBC America - Mondays 7PM Eastern on HD Net USA

      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-
      owner@yahoogroups.com , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.

      MILITARY:

      BFBS is not updating their schedule at the moment. This is
      extrapolated based on how episodes were airing the last time they
      kept their schedule up to date. The sooner they fix their schedule,
      the more accurate the listings can be.
