Wednesday, 28 February 2007 - Reported by Kenny Davidson
The Australian Associated Press are reporting that Network Ten have purchased Torchwood and are also committed to series two of the spin-off.
Update March 5 2007: The Sydney Morning Herald today in its weekly TV guide reports on Channel Ten's "surprise move" to buy Torchwood (with a full-length photo of Captain Jack).
The SMH reports that "[m]any had assumed the ABC would land the show because of its link to the long-running Doctor Who franchise . . . Ten will launch Torchwood later this year. It remains unclear how Ten and the ABC will handle crossover storylines between the two shows."
The Age (March 8 2007) has also reported on the "keenly awaited" Torchwood being purchased by Channel Ten.
