The long wait is over if you have been waiting for The Rebel Flesh to appear on iTunes. This year, the new episodes have been appearing on iTunes within hours of it being broadcast of BBC America, as opposed to last year when it was usually a 24 hour wait. I even made a point of mentioning how fast they are appearing this year in Doctor Who: Podshock 247. So wouldn't you know that this week, they deliberately held back on it just to prove me wrong. Well, perhaps not deliberately. There was some issue though that had held it up.
It is now available now in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Although it had been listed on Amazon, there were reports that it was not downloading from them. Now that it is available via iTunes, we might assume that the download issue from Amazon has also been resolved.
Below are the links to fetch the episode from the respective provides:

We are a week out from the launch of the new 2011 series of Doctor Who. I don't where the time goes. It's here again. Being that the next Sunday after next Saturday's premiere is a holiday, the first live over-the-net show reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock will be on the following Sunday, May 1st. We may or may not be using Talkshoe again. I am exploring other options if anyone has any to offer. Stay tuned here for forthcoming details.
But before next Saturday comes, this Saturday (April 16, 2011), or for some already, today, I will be speaking on a panel at I-CON 30 from 3pm to 4pm (EDT) (in room 111 in the Javits Lecture Hall at SUNY, Stony Brook, NY). The panel is titled, '21st Century Doctor Who.' Ken Deep of Doctor Who: Podshock will also be on the panel. The panel is being organized by Docking Bay 516 for I-CON. So if you are attending I-CON this year, be sure to attend this panel.
In the meantime, the latest episode of The Sonic Newsdriver is available. Along with the usual Doctor Who related news, it features a 'live' interview with Anthony S Burdge @MythicDocWho while he was in line for the special premiere showing of the first two episodes of the new series in NYC which took place on Monday, April 11th.
