      Torchwood This Week
      August 29, 2009 - Volume 3, Number 33
      The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Latin America - BBC Entertainment Latin America will air Torchwood Series 3 (Children Of Earth) weekly in September and October. The times seem to vary week to week.

      GERMANY - RTL 2 will air Torchwood Series 3 (Children Of Earth) weekly from 16 September at 10:05PM CET.

      USA - BBC America is shaking up their schedule significantly in September. In a move similar to SciFi/Syfy US' "Daytime Rotation", a weekday multi-hour block of shows will now cover a single program each day, flipping around through BBC America's back catalogue of programming. Most days this block will be 6 hours long and run from 11AM to 5PM Eastern (8AM to 2PM Pacific). In September the block is focused on Dramas and Comedies with just a couple days of reality programming. I am not going to cover BBC America's rotation here, but in the early weeks fans of Hotel Babylon, MI-5, Cracker, Primeval, Robin Hood, Coupling, and Catherine Tate are likely to be pretty happy.

      USA - BBC America is giving Torchwood a regular weekly slot again - Saturdays 7PM Eastern/4PM Pacific. Everything Changes aired in that slot suddenly on August 22nd. Episodes air weekly as of Saturday September 5 with Day One.

      USA - BBC America will also have 2 Torchwood marathons courtesy the new weekday shakeup mentioned above. On US Labor Day (Monday September 7), Children Of Earth will encore in a 7 hour block from 9AM to 4PM Eastern (6AM to 1PM Pacific). The first 45 minutes is an edited repeat of "Inside The Hub", with the 5 episodes in 75 minute slots starting at 9:45AM Eastern/6:45AM Pacific. A marathon of the first 6 episodes of Torchwood Series 1 airs Tuesday 15 September at 11AM Eastern/8AM Pacific.

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