Torchwood Series 2 World Premiere - Wednesday 16 January 9PM GMT on
BBC Two and BBC HD!
It was expected, but now official about the day and time. At least
for the 16th, Torchwood Series 2 Premiere Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang will
air at the same time in all BBC Two regions (BBC Two Wales usually
aired Torchwood later during Series 1, with 2 Wales Digital airing
Torchwood later still - both regions are at the network time for now).
BBC Three - only one repeat spotted so far - Wednesday 16 January
11:30PM GMT.
Pre-Watershed - no sign of the pre-watershed version of Kiss Kiss,
Bang Bang yet, even though episode 2's Pre-Watershed airing is set
for Thursday 24 January at 7PM on BBC Two.
Torchwood DeClassified - again, no sign of episode 1. Episode 2 airs
on Thursday 24 January at 7:50PM on BBC Two.

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.
