Doctor Who, Season 1Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
Christopher Eccleston's Doctor is wise, funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner, his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world is in danger. However, when it comes to interpersonal relationships, he can be found wanting. That's why he needs new assistant Rose. Rose is a shop-girl from the present day. From the moment they meet, the Doctor and Rose are soul mates. They understand and complement each other. As they travel together through time, encountering new adversaries, the Doctor shows her things beyond imagination. She starts out as an innocent, unfettered by worldly concerns. But she ends up an adventurer who, by the end of the series, can never go home again...

Fantastic show- POOR picture resolution as usual!
I love this show, and shared others opinions, being frustrated it wasn't on the UK store when it was on the US one. This show is well worth buying. However, when I spend £20 on a series, I expect it to be close to DVD quality. Films from iTunes are great quality and as close to DVD quality as I'd expect for their file size- they are well worth buying. However, I can't recommend most TV shows from iTunes simply because of the poor encoding- namely the resolution. Watching these shows on an iPod is great, but watch them on your computer or on the AppleTV and you will see how blocky and pixelated they are. If the films can be close to DVD quality AND be able to play them on the iPod, why can't the TV shows? Shame.
Yes David Tennant has become our favourite Doctor but let's not forget this was the series that started our love of Doctor Who again and this series if the most consistent in terms of a classic adventure week after week. Chris Eccleston's portrayal of a Doctor fresh from the Time War with all the pain of losing his people was one of the best performances in Doctor Who for me and I still miss him even though David is so good. The Daleks are the highlight of this series for me. Rob Shearman's "Dalek" is nothing short of perfect and Joe Aherne's direction throughout the series is superb, especially the brilliant camera work on "Parting of the Ways" where we appear to have a whole army of Daleks moving through the space station that aren't done using CGI. Perfect television in my opinion!
YAY Doctor Who finally on itunes!!!!
This season is a brilliant start to the new doctor who saga now we just need series 2 to 4 and then we'll be cooking on gas, bring on the David Tennant era!!!!!
