The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
HD Net USA http://www.hd.net will finish its run of uncut commercial
free Series 2 this Monday at 7PM EDT/4PM PDT. Series 1 repeats to
follow. BBC America On Demand's version of Torchwood Series 2 comes
down on May 12, based on their website.
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.
