Torchwood was delayed for 55 minutes by the finale of Big Brother 2007 on Monday July 31st, and TEN's schedule for May 6th has The Lost Tomb of Jesus listed from 20.30 to 22.30 instead of the Doctor Who spin off.
TEN has confirmed it will be moving to Tuesday midnight, or 27 and a half hours later than it had been scheduled, from August 8.
I'm sorry to say both Torchwood and Doctor Who haven't been rating that well. Who missed out on its usual million viewer debut. The Big Brother over run drew 1.92 million viewers, peaking at 2 million, followed by Torchwood averaging out at 563, 000.
A spokesperson says: "Although Torchwood launched to an impressive number it was not able to sustain rating up against particularly tough competition. We thank loyal fans for their support and we will play out the series, albeit on Tuesday's late night."

The Torchwood episode last night (14/8) had the dreaded "rpt" next to it in two separate TV guides here in Canberra. Nothing surprising there from this network but then I flick on Channel 10 about 1215am and look, this wasn't a repeat (unless I've missed an episode - but I don't think so).
