    Doctor Who News

    The long awaited news of Doctor Who being available for purchase via Apple iTunes store has finally come. For the first time starting today, Doctor Who is available to download on iTunes in the US. Currently, the selection is limited to the 2005, 2006, and 2007 series. We can speculate that the 2008 series (AKA "Series 4") will become available after they have been shown on BBC America.

    Each episode is available to download for $1.99 (US) or for each of the complete 13 episode series $25.87 (US). Unfortunately, at this time it does not include any of the Christmas specials (The Christmas Invasion, The Runaway Bride, and Voyage of the Damned). Also there is no indication of any episodes prior to 2005 appearing on iTunes.

    This makes it easier than ever for people to enjoy recent episodes the long running series right on their iPod, iPhone, AppleTV, and/or computer.

    This announcement comes just prior to the biggest presence of Doctor Who at the annual Comic-Con publicity event in San Diego, CA. Scheduled to appear on Thursday (12-1 pm) at the event are Executive Producer and Lead Writer Russell T Davies, Producer Julie Gardner, and writer (and soon to be Exec. Producer) Steven Moffat who will be discussing the creative process and their experiences working on Doctor Who. This is the first year that BBC America will have booth at this event.

    UPDATE 5-Aug-2008:

    As reported by T Baker (not Tom), there are now some pre-2005 Doctor Who stories available on the Apple iTunes store in addition to the series reported above.

    Available at this time are the following:

    • Carnival of Monsters
    • Spearhead from Space
    • The Krotons
    • The Three Doctors
    • Terror of the Autons
    • The Time Monster
    • The Claws of Axos
    • Planet of Spiders
    • The Green Death

    This is excellent news. I had sent an e-mail to the BBC back in 2005 and was told that because of the license fee that UK citizens pay for cable there would be no Doctor Who in iTunes.

    Does anyone know the resolution of the files? And I would assume that they have DRM?

    I just added the link to our Forum Discussion on this topic. I should have added it when I originally posted the article, it was left out accidently in my haste to get the article posted.

    I've just checked the I-Tunes store and series 1, 2 and 3 are available. Also there are a FEW classic episodes. The few I remember are "The Three Doctors", "Carnival of Monsters, "The Time Monster", and "The Krotons".

    As you can see most of the classic episodes are from the 3rd Doctor's era. Most episodes are $1.99 and can also be bought as a whole series for more.
