"Who" and "Torchwood" on BBC Radio 4
As previously mentioned, I listen to a lot of BBC Radio on the iPlayer. I signed up for the Radio 4 Newsletter (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/newsletter/ ) and got this today:
Hello fellow listeners,
We're really pleased that we’ve secured three episodes of Torchwood for Radio 4 (hear them in the Afternoon Play slot Wednesday–Friday next week), and we’re also making them available as podcasts. Read more about this here:

Cool. There's more interesting stuff including:
Journey into Space – The Host, 2.30-3.30pm
By Julian Simpson, from the series created by Charles Chilton. Jet Morgan and his crew are woken from cryo-sleep by a distress call from an abandoned freighter. There they discover the personality construct of JJ Andreev, a long ago associate of Jet’s who was reported dead eight years earlier, locked inside the dying ship’s computer system. With Toby Stephens as Jet Morgan and David Jacobs as The Host.
Toby Stephens was Mr. Rochester in the recent "Jane Eyre," and I got to see (just about all of) him in "The Country Wife" in London last year. He's really good, put him on your TiVo list.
For "Galactica" fans:
