Surreal news of the day

Torchwood Season 2. This is one of the more surreal press releases I’ve ever read. For example: “We’re delighted that Torchwood is joining BBC Two. We know from the success and popularity of Heroes that there’s a growing appetite for smart, high-quality, sci-fi drama on the channel so Torchwood is a perfect fit.”.

But the real gem is this actual, genuine, no-really-it’s-not-a-joke quote: “I’m also pleased to announce that, due to popular demand from families and younger viewers, we will be showing a special pre-watershed repeat so everyone can enjoy the new series.”

That’ll be a ten minute version then. The question is, will there be a special *post*-watershed repeat that’s been edited so that the rest of us can enjoy it?
