Torchwood This Week - June 13, 2009

Torchwood This Week
June 13, 2009 - Volume 3, Number 24
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Torchwood: Children Of Earth. Here is what we know on scheduling.
1) BBC One (with a BBC HD simulcast) will insist on airing the episodes first.
Maybe by hours, maybe by days. Any network that schedules Children Of Earth -
you know that either BBC One will air ahead of that or they will force said
network to revise plans and delay the show.
2) BBC One has not announced when they will air the episodes. Bugging James
Moran on Twitter is not going to get you an airdate, because they have not told
him either.
3) BBC America is the only network to announce a firm schedule - 5 day strip
from Monday 20 July to Friday 24 July. So Torchwood's UK premiere will be 20
July or sooner (bearing in mind point #1 above). Torchwood is part of the launch
of BBC America HD.
4) UKTV Australia and SPACE in Canada have announced that Torchwood: Children Of
Earth is coming in July as well. No airdate announced for either one, and point
#1 still applies. BBC HD Australia has claimed that they will simulcast the
Torchwood episodes with UKTV Australia.
5) BBC Entertainment South Africa bought Torchwood: Children Of Earth as well.
As that network has yet to air Series 2 of Torchwood, it is expected that it
will be a while before they can get to the Children Of Earth episodes.
6) The 3 Radio Plays on BBC Radio 4 from Wednesday 1 July to Friday 3 July are
available to listen to around the world and are set prior to the Children Of
Earth episodes.
And there we have it.
