The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Well, I got my information about the Torchwood Series 3 trailer all
wrong last week. Readers were reporting it available through the BBC
America website and through SPACE in Canada. Looks like it is all
over the place. Sorry for getting it completely wrong.
Canada - French station Ztele is starting their premiere of the
French language version of Torchwood Series 2 (in High Definition and
Standard Definition). Many airings a week starting 23 February.
Series 2 has previously aired in English in standard definition
(SPACE) and is currently premiering in High Definition (HD Net
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who
