Torchwood This Week - October 11, 2008
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
October 11, 2008 - Vol 2, No 40
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
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, 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.
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-

Series 1 Repeats. Yes, I know it was supposed to be Series 2. Yes,
they pulled Doctor Who Series 4 from this slot on the supposed basis
of having Torchwood Series 2. But repeats are better than nothing.
