The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
As everybody probably knows, several Torchwood cast members are in
the Doctor Who episodes The Stolen Earth and Journey's End. Those
episodes' broadcast schedules will be covered in This Week In Doctor
Who. TWIDW and TTW are spoiler-free zones, but it being a Doctor Who
finale, I'm sure the spoilers will be flying in a few hours. Be
We are still awaiting a date for the premiere of the BBC Radio 4
episode of Torchwood. It is assumed the episode will air later this
summer when the reactor that the story ties into is turned on.
ITALY - Jimmy started airing Torchwood Series 2 on 1 July. Episodes are airing many times per week. Since they are only just starting Series 3 of Doctor Who now, there may be some odd continuity moments, as Torchwood and Doctor Who episodes will not be in synch. Just let them pass and have fun.
CANADA - French language station Ztele will air Series 2 of Torchwood Tuesdays at 10PM EDT (with same week repeats). Originally Doctor Who Series 4 was going to air there. It is unclear if Ztele will eventually air Doctor Who Series 4, though this schedule is better for Torchwood/Doctor Who continuity (certain events in Series 2 of Torchwood clearly occur before events in Series 4 of Doctor Who).
ASIA - BBC Entertainment Asia
premieres Torchwood on Monday 7 July at 7:05PM, with various repeats
through the week.
New Zealand - TV2 finally premieres Torchwood
on Wednesday 9 July at 10:30PM. They don't have it on their website,
but various TV listings have uncovered it.
Australia - FOXTEL is launching a BBC HD channel as one of their new HD services this Sunday. Torchwood will be heavily featured, probably premiering in the next few days. Wouldn't it be lovely if they had some sort of schedule somewhere so that the people who had access to the channel had any clue what shows were airing when? Please - make this paragraph out of date. Rush some proper information out. Not just for BBC HD - there does not seem to be information for any of the new BBC HD channels. It's a week later, and I'm still waiting.
