The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
HD Net USA will finish its run of uncut commercial free Series 2 this Monday at 7PM EDT/4PM PDT. Series 1 repeats to follow. BBC America On Demand's version of Torchwood Series 2 comes down on May 12, based on their website.
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.
