I admit to being shocked when I found out that Season 3 of Torchwood was "only" 5 episodes and that they would air on five consecutive nights, specifically July 6th to 10th in the UK. Getting in touch with a number of friends on that side of the pond, I discovered that a good number of them were quite upset with this decision.

Even though I heard that BBC America and Space (in Canada) would be airing it on consecutive nights from July 20th to 24th, I was still eager to get my hands on the Blu-ray version released on July 28th.
