Torchwood This Week
May 9, 2009 - Vol 3, No 19
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
Hints to the Torchwood Series 3 schedule are coming out.
First, the Watch channel in the UK (airs Torchwood repeats) claims they are
airing repeats at 10PM from 15 to 19 June, immediately after new episodes air on
BBC One. This implies that the new Torchwood episodes air Monday to Friday, 15
to 19 June, 9PM BST, BBC One. That said, BBC One is not going to make an
announcement until much closer to the air date and they could always change
their mind.
Second, UKTV in Australia and BBC America in the USA are now advertising that the new Torchwood episodes will air in July. If this is the case, and BBC One airs the new episodes in June, then the hoped for simulcast between various countries on the UK premiere date will not happen.
