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. This week is the Torchwood finale.
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood- , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.

16:9 letterbox. Episodes only air once. Beware the episode descriptions on SPACE, as big plot twists for Series 2 is revealed.
Friday 10PM EDT/7PM PDT/11:30PM Newfoundland 2-13 Exit Wounds (65 minutes)
31 October - Ghost Hunters special simulcast with SciFi Channel. Ghost Hunters takes the time slot from 7 November.
SPACE has rights to Series 2, but does not currently have rights to Series 1, as they are still held by the CBC. They will rest the show before airing a repeat run.
HD on Ztele HD, Dubbed in French.
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.
