Bye Bye Australia?

According to reports on the OutpostGallifrey website, Australian television listing magazine "TV Week" has announced that both the ABC network, and it's main rival - the SBS - have passed on the BBC's offer to screen Torchwood season one.

It also looks like no commercial channel fancies broadcasting the series either - leaving no chance for a Torchwood broadcast in Australia.

This conflicts with previous reports that the show would debut down under some time in 2007.

The ABC network, though, is expected to broadcast Captain Jack's return in "Doctor Who" season three later in the year. One reason the network may have passed up on Torchwood is the show's use of gratituitous language, and scenes of a sexual nature.

If you're an Australian Woodie, feel free to pent your anger below in the comments section. The second any developments occur, torchwood.tv will be here to report them.
