The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
A quiet week. The only Torchwood schedule development is that the HD Net US listing of Torchwood in December turned out to be an error. For now at least, Torchwood is off {HD Net US (BBC America has the exclusive HD rights to Torchwood Series 3 in the USA). HD Net Canada is still airing Series 1 of Torchwood.
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
Corrections and updates are welcome at torchwood- , TWIDW on AIM, and thebfe on Yahoo Messenger.
