Torchwood In Australia

As was mentioned in an earlier post, Torchwood has been picked up in Australia by the Ten Network. The Age Newspaper has posted article about it, which is listed below.

Australians will also be surprised to hear "Kookaburra sits in the Old Gum Tree" in the episode "Small Worlds", which just happens to be about an Australian native bird. The song is sung in Kindergartens, to young children usually as a lullaby.

"Channel Ten has bagged Australian rights to the keenly awaited Dr Who spin-off Torchwood.

The spin-off is built around a team of investigators led by Harkness, a handsome - and bisexual - time agent from the 51st century played by John Barrowman.

He heads a team of investigators who fight crime with the help of technology salvaged from an alien planet. Torchwood was created by Russell T. Davies who is credited with resurrecting - and "queering" - the beloved BBC sci-fi series.

A second series of 13 one-hour episodes of Torchwood is in production. Ten is yet to schedule the show."
