Doctor Who hits iTunes
Stand back, insane lovers of Apple’s extremely user-friendly computers that they package with insanely OTT DRM software! Doctor Who may well be coming to an iPhone near you, but that doesn’t mean you can storm the stage! Don’t you know there’s an Apple iPhone 3G shortage?!
Three seasons of Britain’s most successful sci-fi franchise now available
BBC today announced that for the first time the BAFTA award winning sci-fi series Doctor Who will be available for purchase and download from the iTunes Store in the U.S. (www.itunes.com).
Starting today on iTunes, fans can purchase entire Seasons One, Two and Three of BBC AMERICA’s series Doctor Who.
Created by Russell T Davies, this slick reimagining of Doctor Who puts a fresh spin on the incredible adventures of the iconic Time Lord and his feisty companions – who travel across the universe to protect Earth from dangerous aliens and horrifying monsters.
This announcement coincides with the BBC bringing its largest presence ever to Comic-Con 2008 in San Diego starting Thursday, July 24. For the first time ever, BBC AMERICA will have a booth on the exhibition floor plus a host of creators and stars from four international hit series – Doctor Who, Torchwood, Primeval and Spaced.
