Torchwood UK Airdate Confirmed

The BBC have finally confirmed the broadcast date that Torchwood: Miracle Day will premiere in the UK on BBC One in a press release today, and it isn’t good for us Britons…

“Torchwood: Miracle Day will screen in the UK on BBC One, on Thursday nights. The series will begin on Thursday 14th July, at 9pm.”

So in the UK, despite the fact the new series of Torchwood is half produced and funded by the BBC with Starz, we’re getting it SIX days after the US and five days after Australia and Canada. I try not to litter my blog posts with my own personal opinions too much, but this truly is a mess.

Not the series itself – I have no doubt that it will be magnificent – but this is 2011, where they managed to get Doctor Who Series 6 (in which only Utah-shot scenes were helped by BBC America) to air in the US and in the UK on the same day. The BBC should get it’s act together because otherwise it’ll have even more angry fans and viewers on its hands by the time the next series comes than they already do with this series.

Torchwood: Miracle Day premieres (local time zones)…
  • Starz (USA) - Space (Canada) – Friday 8th July
  • UKTV (Australia) - Saturday 9th July 8:30PM
  • BBC One (UK) – Thursday 14th July 9PM
