Torchwood This Week
May 16, 2009 - Vol 3, No 20
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
As The Torchwood Timetable Turns.
Since our last get together:
1) Watch pulled the paragraph from their June highlights
that referred to new episodes of Torchwood on BBC One the week of 15 June. No
evidence remains now except our memories.
2) BBC America has continued to hype the July premiere
of the new Torchwood episodes in the USA. People are claiming there is a press
release by BBC America stating they are airing the episodes the same days as BBC
One (in July). I have not seen this release.
3) There is apparently a publicity picture on the BBC indicating a Torchwood
airdate in Week 25 (20 to 26 June). Haven't seen this picture yet.
4) The only folks who can settle this and give a firm airdate are the people at
BBC One . They're not talking. If they follow their
usual scheduling practices we will remain in the dark until roughly 2 weeks
before the UK premiere. And all the speculation, heartache, and frantic messages
we're sending around will mean - nothing.
I'm tired of playing the "guess the airdate" game. I don't know. None of us
