Torchwood This Week - April 18, 2009
- Torchwood This Week
April 18, 2009 - Vol 3, No 16
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
As the wait for Series 3 continues, the biggest Torchwood schedule excitement this week was when BBC America rearranged their Saturday lineup twice in 24 hours. At first, BBC America was listing 2 Torchwood episodes each Saturday in an 8PM to 10PM Eastern block (plus two overnight repeats). The next day they went back to one Torchwood episode at 8PM Eastern (plus two overnight repeats). In addition, BBC America is only airing selected Torchwood episodes instead of a full repeat run. Bad news if you wanted to see all 26 episodes. Good news if you wanted to reach the end before Series 3 arrives in June or July. As the schedule is still in flux, only tonight and April 25 are noted in the BBC America section.
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thisweekindoctorwho .

It is expected that BBC America will continue Torchwood repeats into May. However, multiple schedule changes in the past week plus the lack of actually listing Torchwood episodes in May make the schedule a tad unreliable.
