Torchwood This Week - November 15, 2008
- TORCHWOOD THIS WEEK
November 15, 2008 - Vol 2, No 45
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
If you have the US version of HD Net, Monday's repeat of "Exit
Wounds" may be the final broadcast of Torchwood on the network. It is
not on the schedule for November 24 and BBC America did get the
exclusive run of Series 3 when it becomes available. This could be a
false alarm and they might throw some more repeats on in December,
maybe do a marathon, but the end is probably coming.
The CANADIAN version of HD Net runs on a different schedule and its
Torchwood broadcasts are unaffected by whatever happens with the US
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood-
