Torchwood This Week - July 28, 2007

Volume 1, Number 38
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
Torchwood premieres in Spain this weekend. Late Sundays at 1AM on
Cuatro. 1 episode per week.
Seems I was slightly mistaken on the Mexican listings. Canal 22 is
not airing 2 episodes per week. They are breaking episodes into 2
parts. 30 minutes Monday, with the concluding 30 minutes Wednesday.
US readers with Digital Cable - if you have BBC America On Demand, you are getting Torchwood earlier than the rest of us. The documentary Welcome to Torchwood and Torchwood episode 1 (Everything Changes) go on the BBC America On Demand service on Monday 27 August. Expect further episodes to pop up once a week (so - Day One on September 3, Ghost Machine on September 10, etc).

BBC America's On Demand service usually holds 4 episodes at a time before the earlier episodes drop off. It is commercial free. It also has a tendency to air shows unedited that are airing edited on the main channel. Life On Mars Series 1 was the full 58 minutes On Demand versus 45 1/2 minutes on the TV channel. It will be interesting to see if On Demand gets a complete (or at least more complete) version of the Torchwood episodes.

To get BBC America On Demand, you need to a) have BBC America on your system, b) be subscribed to Digital Cable, and c) your cable system needs to have signed up for it. DirecTV and Dish Network subscribers are out of luck - the On Demand service isn't available on satellite at this time. If you don't get On Demand, you can join me waiting for its arrival on [t{26023=Saturday 8 September}} on the BBC America TV channel.

BBC America (so far at least) has only put shows On Demand that they air in the US first, so don't expect Doctor Who to pop up there.
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
I am trying to find websites and station information for some of the
more elusive Torchwood sales. If you spot it airing or getting ready
to air in your country, and I've missed it, let me know so it gets
into the next edition and more fans get informed.
