Torchwood This Week - January 31, 2009
- Torchwood This Week
January 31, 2009 - Vol 3, No 5
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Australia - UKTV Australia premieres 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. On the other hand ...
Australia - ABC http://www.abc.net.au/tv has purchased Series 1 and 2 of
Torchwood, bringing Torchwood back to over the air TV. The episodes will
begin sometime this year, probably on ABC2. With Doctor Who's history on
ABC, Torchwood should thrive better than on TEN.

Sci-Fi France http://www.scifitv.fr
Torchwood Series 1 is airing, but I cannot get the current schedule as of
this writing. If anyone here knows the webmaster, the schedule information
on the site will be slightly more useful if more than 1 day is displayed.
Especially if that day has already passed. Otherwise, the site is lovely,
but if you do not know when the show is on, it gets a tad ... pointless.
HD Net Canada http://www.hd.net
Complete, uncut episodes in High Definition (not the same schedule as HD Net
Monday 8 and 11:10PM EST/5 and 8:10PM PST 2-02 "Sleeper"

16:9 letterbox. Episodes only air once. Series 2 repeat run completed. 65
minute time slot.
Looks like Torchwood is off the schedule for now. Here is hoping they can
get Series 3 when it becomes available and that CBC releases Series 1 so
SPACE can have the full run.
