Torchwood This Week - August 29, 2009

Torchwood This Week
August 29, 2009 - Volume 3, Number 33
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Latin America - BBC Entertainment Latin America will air Torchwood Series 3
(Children Of Earth) weekly in September and October. The times seem to vary week
to week.
GERMANY - RTL 2 will air Torchwood Series 3 (Children Of Earth) weekly from 16 September at 10:05PM CET.
USA - BBC America is shaking up their schedule significantly in September. In a
move similar to SciFi/Syfy US' "Daytime Rotation", a weekday multi-hour block of
shows will now cover a single program each day, flipping around through BBC
America's back catalogue of programming. Most days this block will be 6 hours
long and run from 11AM to 5PM Eastern (8AM to 2PM Pacific). In September the
block is focused on Dramas and Comedies with just a couple days of reality
programming. I am not going to cover BBC America's rotation here, but in the
early weeks fans of Hotel Babylon, MI-5, Cracker, Primeval, Robin Hood,
Coupling, and Catherine Tate are likely to be pretty happy.
USA - BBC America is giving Torchwood a regular weekly slot again - Saturdays
7PM Eastern/4PM Pacific. Everything Changes aired in that slot suddenly on
August 22nd. Episodes air weekly as of Saturday September 5 with Day One.
USA - BBC America will also have 2 Torchwood marathons courtesy the new weekday shakeup mentioned above. On US Labor Day (Monday September 7), Children Of Earth will encore in a 7 hour block from 9AM to 4PM Eastern (6AM to 1PM Pacific). The first 45 minutes is an edited repeat of Inside The Hub, with the 5 episodes in 75 minute slots starting at 9:45AM Eastern/6:45AM Pacific. A marathon of the first 6 episodes of Torchwood Series 1 airs Tuesday 15 September at 11AM Eastern/8AM Pacific.
