In recent 'WTF?!' news....
Channel Ten have got the broadcasting rights to Torchwood series one and series two.

Uh. What? Never mind that the show that it spun off from is on the ABC. Ha, maybe the ABC saw the crap reviews in the British press and passed on it. "Meh, one of the commercial networks can have it."

I expect them to screen it for two weeks in a prime time slot, then when it doesn't rate (maybe I'm wrong, but I think you need to watch DW as well to understand some of the stuff in the show- especially Captain Jack's backstory), shunt it to 11:30 like they do with BSG and Veronica Mars. Oh, and they'll probably edit out scenes too.

*quietly thanks God that Doctor Who is on the ABC and won't face this fate*

Current Mood: okay okay
Current Music: Billy Joel- New York State of Mind

*Is in complete and utter shock*. Good shock though. Remind me never, ever, to speak ill of Channel Ten again.

I'm so watching, hell I don't care what it's like. It's got a RTD/steven moffat-penned smart talking American and Eve Myles. It's Seriously Cool, as they say over there in House land...

Of course your right on the DW front. If the ABC lose/don't pick up the rights, i will personally sue for my eight cents a day back.
