      Torchwood This Week
      January 17, 2009 - Vol 3, No 3
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      TWIDW has been taken off the front of the columns. Good experiment,
      but it does not work for me, and I'm writing them. Doctor Who
      information for Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia remain in the
      classic column - This Week In Doctor Who. North and South American
      listings - This Week In Doctor Who Western Hemisphere. Sarah Jane,
      Podcasts, and Errata - This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs.

      South Africa - this Sunday sees the premiere of Torchwood on BBC
      Entertainment South Africa. Catch Everything Changes at 8:04PM and
      1:01AM Central African Time.

      USA - BBC America is planning to premiere Torchwood: Children Of
      Earth (Series 3) on the same 5 days that the episodes air on BBC One
      in the UK. However, the episodes may premiere in the UK and US as
      late as June or July.

      Australia - it looks like UKTV Australia will premiere Series 2 on
      Tuesday 3 February, using the timeslots where they currently repeat
      Series 1. If you were not able to see Series 2 in 2008 because you
      could not get Ten's HD station, hopefully it will be a bit easier to
      get UKTV.

      Canada - HD Net Canada http://www.hd.net will begin airing Series 2
      episodes uncut on Monday 26 January at 8PM EST/5PM PST/9:30PM
      Newfoundland. This is the first HD airing for the episodes in Canada.
      The episodes should look just like they did when HD Net in the USA
      aired them last year.

      Latin America - BBC Entertainment Latin America is having a Torchwood
      marathon next Saturday 24 January. All of Series 1 airs - 7AM to 8PM.
      The marathon will probably begin before next week's column can go out.

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

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