Break-fest With John

With only three days to go now until the television premiere of Torchwood on BBC Three, the media frenzy has finally began to kick up a gear or two.

Tomorrow morning, on BBC Breakfast (BBC One) there's going to be a John Barrowman interview, and a few (pre-watershed acceptable) clips of the series. The whole piece should be posted on the BBCi website once transmission has ended.

Meanwhile, British papers across the land are all running quick Torchwood previews today. I'm guessing either they all went to the Press Screening last night, (Wales Today's coverage of it, now up on youtube thanks to Tara here) or haven't been allowed to print about the series until now. Anyway, today we have articles in print in: the Sun, the Daily Star, the Daily Mail and the Mirror. Keep your eyes peeled - and if you do stumble upon some press cuttings, let us know. So far we have spotted coverage online at: icWales here and here, Manchester Evening News, The Guardian, The Stage, INS Australia, Digital Spy, and two from the BBC, here and here.

In other news, a short 10 minute Torchwood Declassified has been put up on BBCi for all to watch (presumably, in the UK only though). You can watch the special Declassifies teaser episode by clicking here, and scrolling down a little to find the link needed.

We're hearing also that this Saturday's Times will have a nice Rusell T Davies interview...

If you spot any Torchwood related goodness, let us know by e-mailing us here.

Until next time Woodies...

Yes I can't seem to watch this clip either, so just have to be a bit patient over here I suppose.

I don't live in the UK either, maybe that's the problem?

Thanks Tara, you are always on top of everything. Let me know if you want to be a contributor here.

The BBC removed the flash version of the declassified preview last week and moved it to the bbc-uk server only, which does IP restrictions. Non-UK people won't be able to see it (at least not on the BBC website).

On the plus side, non-UK people can now view the Flash version of the official Torchwood website directly, so that's good.
