      TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
      September 20, 2008 - Vol 2, No 37
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.

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

      Canada - SPACE http://www.spacecast.com is airing Torchwood in 65
      minute timeslots. So make sure your recording device is scheduled to
      record Torchwood for 1 hour, 5 minutes instead of 1 hour. If you are
      in the Central and Mountain Time Zones and also plan to watch Doctor
      Who Series 4 on the CBC this fall, check your cable/satellite
      provider's channel lineup to make sure you have other regions of CBC.
      In those 2 time zones the 65 minute Torchwood broadcast on SPACE will
      overlap Doctor Who on CBC (9PM all time zones), and neither show has
      a repeat slot. Satellite customers should be fine and it is believed
      that most digital cable subscribers have multiple CBCs too, but the
      time to check your lineup is now, as opposed to the 19th of
      September. The conflict ends on 24 October when the series 2 finale
      airs.

      UK - BBC HD http://www.bbc.co.uk/hd begins an encore of the Pre-
      Watershed Versions of Series 2 this Saturday at 7:35PM BST. These
      episodes have some sex, language, and violence removed, as they were
      intended for BBC Two pre-watershed viewing.

      Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-
      owner@yahoogroups.com , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.
