Torchwood This Week
June 6, 2009 - Volume 3, Number 23
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
BBC America announced plans for BBC America HD, their new high definition feed
for the station. BBC America HD and the third series of Torchwood both launch on
Monday July 20. It will be a big sci-fi week for BBC America. As for Torchwood,
the special "Inside The Hub" airs Monday at 8PM, 11PM, and 1AM Eastern. New
episodes premiere at 9PM, Midnight, and 2AM Eastern Monday to Friday that week.
The first 4 episodes repeat in the 8PM, 11PM, and 1AM slots just before the new
SPACE Channel confirmed their recent Doctor Who and Torchwood acquisitions this week. Torchwood Series 3 (Children Of Earth) premieres in July (the release does not say if it will strip across a week or air weekly). It also confirms that SPACE currently has rights to Series 1 and 2 of Torchwood.
BBC Radio 4 has scheduled the 3 Torchwood plays. The
plays will air in the Afternoon Play slot from Wednesday 1 July to Friday 3 July
on Radio 4 (2:15PM UK Time, 3:15PM Central Europe Time on Long Wave). They are
45 minutes each. They are set between Lost Souls (the Radio 4 play last
September) and Series 3 (Children Of Earth). Radio 4 can be listened to live
around the world. The episodes will also be available on Radio 4's Listen Again
programming for 7 days after each installment airs.
BBC Entertainment Scandinavia premieres
Torchwood this Monday 8 June. In at least some of the Scandinavian countries,
this will be their introduction to Torchwood.
SciFi Netherlands premieres Torchwood Series 2 this Wednesday 10 June. 1 episode a week - airing 3 times in various slots.
BBC Entertainment Poland started Series 2 of
Torchwood last week. We did not know this at the time due to the lack of a
schedule on the site.
BBC HD Australia begins repeating Torchwood Series 1 this Sunday at 7:30PM, with each episode airing a large number of times in a 2 week period. If you have this channel, it is a good chance to see the episodes in full HD picture quality.
TV2 Finland begins a late night repeat run of Torchwood Series 1 and 2 this Sunday 7 June. The start time varies week to week - this week it will be 12:01AM.
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .
