Torchwood This Week
April 18, 2009 - Vol 3, No 16
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
As the wait for Series 3 continues, the biggest Torchwood schedule excitement
this week was when BBC America rearranged their Saturday lineup twice in 24
hours. At first, BBC America was listing 2 Torchwood episodes each Saturday in
an 8PM to 10PM Eastern block (plus two overnight repeats). The next day they
went back to one Torchwood episode at 8PM Eastern (plus two overnight repeats).
In addition, BBC America is only airing selected Torchwood episodes instead of a
full repeat run. Bad news if you wanted to see all 26 episodes. Good news if you
wanted to reach the end before Series 3 arrives in June or July. As the schedule
is still in flux, only tonight and April 25 are noted in the BBC America
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .

It is expected that BBC America will continue Torchwood repeats into May.
However, multiple schedule changes in the past week plus the lack of actually
listing Torchwood episodes in May make the schedule a tad unreliable.
