Torchwood This Week - October 11, 2008

The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
Canada - SPACE is airing Torchwood in 65 minute timeslots. So make sure your recording device is scheduled to record Torchwood for 1 hour, 5 minutes instead of 1 hour. If you are in the Central and Mountain Time Zones and also plan to watch Doctor Who Series 4 on the CBC, check your cable/satellite provider's channel lineup to make sure you have other regions of CBC. In those 2 time zones the 65 minute Torchwood broadcast on SPACE will overlap Doctor Who on CBC (9PM all time zones), and neither show has a repeat slot. Satellite customers should be fine and it is believed that most digital cable subscribers have multiple CBCs too, but the time to check your lineup is now, as opposed to the 19th of September. The conflict ends on 24 October when the series 2 finale airs.
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood- , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.

Series 1 Repeats. Yes, I know it was supposed to be Series 2. Yes, they pulled Doctor Who Series 4 from this slot on the supposed basis of having Torchwood Series 2. But repeats are better than nothing.
