Torchwood This Week - April 5, 2008

April 5, 2008 - Vol 2, No 13
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Torchwood Series 2 finished its UK run last night in Exit Wounds.
It is expected that Torchwood will return for a 3rd series in 2009,
though we do not know how many episodes will air. When discussing the
finale, make sure that the other person has actually seen the episode
before you tell them your thoughts on what happened. The rule goes
for all the episodes, but so far Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah
Jane Adventures have tended to have big finales with shocking
developments at the end of each series, and most people would rather
see the shocks on screen for the first time rather than hearing about
them before they see the show.
CANADA - HD Net Canada will present the uncut versions of Torchwood to Canada for the first time. Like the US version of HD Net, Canadians can expect to see the show uncut and commercial free. You have to have a Canadian high definition cable or satellite service to see this channel. Premieres Monday 14 April. Episodes air at 7PM and 11PM EDT (4 and 8PM PDT, 8:30PM and 12:30AM Newfoundland).
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.
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood- , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.

cannot find a premiere date yet.
Dubbed into Italian. Series 1 repeats.
No listings for repeats for the last 3 episodes yet, as they are failing to put up the April listings for some reason.
