Torchwood This Week - December 15, 2007

The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Torchwood Series 2 definitely premieres the week of 12 to 18 January
2008 on BBC Two. Exact day and time still not confirmed.
BBC Entertainmet Poland will be
airing Series 1 of Torchwood, based on their launch trailer. Start
date and air times are unknown.
BBC America launches Series 2 of Torchwood on Saturday 26 January 2008 at 9PM Eastern, a date expected to be very soon after the UK premiere of the new series. The early launch is due to Torchwood's status as BBC America's most successful show ever. BBC America is repeating Series 1 on Saturdays starting 8 December - 2 episodes per weekend, covering the 7 weeks before the Series 2 launch. HD Net airs the uncensored and unedited Series 1 finale this Monday and Wednesday. (actually Everything Changes)
BBC America On Demand will take down the Torchwood Series 1 episodes
from the service on Monday 17 December. Captain Jack Harkness will
only be up for 3 weeks and End Of Days up for 2 weeks, instead of the
usual 4. This is standard with BBC America shows - they leave the on
demand service shortly after the current run of new episodes ends.
Series 2 will likely start going up on Monday 28 January.
UKTV Australia launched Torchwood on Tuesday 11 December at 8:30PM AEDT. If you missed Torchwood on Ten or its regional variants, you get another chance to tune in.
Ten HD (a new version of Ten for high definition TVs that launches in
December) will present Torchwood free to air for high definition TVs
Thursdays at 9:30PM from 20 December. It is part of a Thursday lineup
that deviates from Ten's regular schedule.
Ztele in Canada will air Torchwood Series 1 in French Mondays at 8PM, Wednesdays at 5PM, and Fridays at 10PM from 7 January. CBC (English language broadcaster) airs Combat on 4 January, but seems to have given Torchwood's timeslot to the show "MVP" from 11 January. No airdate is known for the last 2 Series 1 episodes on CBC.
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.
