The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
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.
Greece - Skai premieres Torchwood this Thursday at 11PM EET.
Canada - SPACE will give Torchwood Series 2 a two hour premiere on Friday 8 August at 9PM EDT (6PM PDT, 10:30PM Newfoundland). The regular timeslot will be Fridays at 10PM EDT (7PM PDT, 11:30PM Newfoundland). There will probably be a repeat timeslot for the episodes, but it has not been disclosed yet. SPACE does not have the English language standard definition rights to Series 1 - they are still held by CBC TV.
Germany RTL 2 is expected to bring Torchwood to Germany in Spring 2009.
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood- , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.
