I watched season 3 last year on another network and it's really worth watching. The first episod of the third season begins with the Doctor (David Tennant) trying to help a bride who mysteriously appeared on the TARDIS. In the second episode, the Doctor meets medical student Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) while trying to help save the patients and staff of a London hospital that has been transported to the moon. John Barrowman playing Capt. Jack Harkness will appear in this season, he was also on couple of episodes from the first season.

Torchwood 60min BBCA

I'm actually looking forward to this. Season 2 of Torchwood takes off from believe it out not from a combination of season 1 of Torchwood and the last few episodes of Season 3 of Doctor Who. The premiere episode returns with the re-appearance of Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) who mysteriously disappeared also a stranger (played by James Marsters from "Smallville" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") claming to be an acquaintance of Jack's turns up in Cardiff causing a little trouble. Freema Agyeman who plays Martha from "Doctor Who" will also makes an appearance this season.

The NHL's 56th All-Star Game in Atlanta is sure to be interesting especially if you're a hockey fan myself included. Like the NHL in general, the All-Star game has been barely promoted. I did happen to run across an ad or two.

Masterpiece Theatre: Mansfield Park 90min PBS

Billie Piper ("Doctor Who") stars in this adaptation of Jane Austen's "Mansfield Park" as Fanny Price, a young woman from a poor background who has been raised by her wealthy aunt and uncle.
