Mazes of Time

As previously reported, there is a new Doctor Who iOS game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time. It is now in the Apple App Store as of today. There are two versions, one is for the iPhone and iPod touch, and an HD version for the iPad. Unfortunately, it is not a universal app, so you can either get the iPhone/iPod touch version and upscale it for the iPad, or alternatively get the HD version specifically for the iPad.

The prices in the US App store are currently $3.99 and $4.99 NOW ONLY 99¢ each.

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray and DVD Release Date

Doctor Who A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray

Even though we are still a couple weeks away from the airing of Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol (coming to BBC (6pm) and BBC America (9pm) on the 25th of December), we already have a release date for the special on Blu-ray and DVD.

Just in time for Gallifrey 22, the special is slated for release on the 15th of February. So much for giving it as a Valentine's Day gift. Along with the special, the accompanying 'Doctor Who: Confidential' on it and 'Doctor Who at the Proms 2010' will be included as bonus material.

We can also assume that the special will be available on iTunes the day after it is shown on BBC America, so figure on it being there on Boxing Day.
