OT: Torchwood - Series 3 preview

Digital Spy has an interview with Torchwood producer Peter Bennett about next year's series:
What's the plotline of this series?
"It's different to every other year. It's not a story about spaceships, but it's about a government that did a deal with aliens back in the '60s, and they're now dealing with the consequences of that deal when the sins of their past come back to haunt them."

What was the thinking behind switching to doing a five-episode serial?
"Having done 26 standalone stories, we kind of wanted to take this series to another level and by making it one story over five nights, we feel we've done that. It's big, it's epic, and it's very different."

I've read some of what they have planned and I'm really looking forward to it. Especially if marth and Micky do indeed join up.

Rather a tangential question here: I saw the first part of the Swedish Wallander on BBC 4 a few weeks ago, but missed the 2nd part. Have you any idea where one can get hold of both parts (with English subtitles)?
