Doctor Who as seen on iPlayer on the Xbox 360

Do YOU Watch Doctor Who on Your Tablet? [POLL]

Technology on the go; it’s not so much ‘the times they are a-changin’ more like ‘The Times they are a downloadin’ boom-tish!

Take your daily commute into Drudge Inc. before; a seat and a copy of the Metro were your only insulation against the yawning chasm that is Monday morning.

Now, the distractions are endless!

We no longer sit under a collective raincloud wondering about the 1.37 billion choices that lead us to seat number 37 on a slow-moving 5 disease incubator hash-tagging #ohgodwhybotheritsallsomeaningless.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Now you can warm your face by the light of glowey rectangles of purring warm goodness that turns ephemeral Wi-Fi (and fickle, fickle 3G) into HD wonder-casts.

Doctor Who as seen on iPlayer on the Xbox 360

Last year, 2.3 billion shows were watched or listened to via the BBC’s iPlayer and with the continuing rise of tablet and smartphone users (which now account for a quarter of all download requests on the service) ; it looks likely that the number will sky-rocket.

Now look at yourselves. Yes, you there you culturally savvy wonderful collection of flesh and bones finished off with a fistful of hair. Do you own a tablet? How do you absorb the latest instalment of Doctor Who?

Individual Doctor Who episodes alone accounted for 2 million requests last year and with Daniel Danker, general manager of programmes and on demand singling out ‘audiences taking the iPlayer on the go’ how many of you tablet tappers have watched Doctor Who while out and about?

With the emphasis on making the handheld viewing experience as easy and enjoyable as sitting in front of the telly just how many of you would swap and make your tablet of choice the first destination for all your Who based goodness?

Will it ever replace that collective viewing experience?

So kick off your Kindles, ignite your iPads, arm your Acers, nudge your Nexus’, get tapping and let us know about your Doctor Who viewing experiences!

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
