The new upcoming Doctor Who series ("Series 9") is now available to purchase as a season pass on Apple's iTunes. On iTunes it is being referred to as "Season 9". So if you enjoy watching the new episodes on iTunes, you might as well grab the season pass now so that you will be all set once September 19th rolls around. You can find it here: Doctor Who, Season 9 - Doctor Who
A collection of Doctor Who content is available under the umbrella of the '50th Anniversary Collection' on iTunes. According to the description it will include 'The Day of the Doctor' anniversary special and 'An Adventure in Space and Time' when they are released. Already there are 'Revisited' specials, the Proms, and more recently the mini-episode, 'The Last Day.' A season pass to all the content is $29.95, although you can purchase them individually and some are offered for free.
Recovered 'missing episodes' from Africa for the Doctor Who stories, 'The Web of Fear' and 'The Enemy of the World' both starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor thought to have been lost forever have been remastered and are now on iTunes!
Episode 3 of the 1968 story 'The Web of Fear' has been reconstructed using stills and audio, the other episodes of this 6 episode adventure have been remastered.
It's great to finally have "new" old Doctor Who to watch. Each story is $9.99 (USD) or $1.99 (USD) per episode. Links to both are below:
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:

A quick heads up for those looking to get the latest episode of Doctor Who via iTunes. The new 2011 series premiere, The Impossible Astronaut is now available for purchase ($2.99) or rent (99¢) via the US Apple iTunes store:

As previously reported, the Doctor Who iOS game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time debuted in the Apple App Store last December. 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 had been $3.99 and $4.99 respectively, but are NOW ONLY 99¢ each. So if you have been holding off purchasing this game for the iOS platform, now is the time (that includes myself). At this time, I don't know if this price reduction only pertains to the US iTunes App Store or if it is worldwide. Also I do not know if this is a permanent price reduction or a limited time sale.

The update should address a bug that may had prevented you from seeing episodes (podcast episodes and exclusives) appearing on your screen on the iPad. A couple other bugs were addressed as well.
