Doctor Who: Spearhead from SpaceTV-14Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


The Autons were chosen to bring back Doctor Who in the brilliant story, Rose. Here the creepy living plastic monsters are introduced for the first time, smashing their way through shop windows and killing the residents of Ealing High Street. Can the newly-regenerated Doctor and new companion Liz Shaw prevent further bloodshed and save the planet?

Proper start

This series with the Third Doctor directly ties in to the first episode ("Rose") of the new series with the first appearance of the Ninth Doctor and introdues us to the Nestene. I'm assuming Russel T. Davies borrowed for this particular series because he saw it as classic Doctor Who. As much as I'd like iTunes to carry the newer episodes, I think Whovians, old and new, would benefit from a look at the the show's history and how the two universes of Doctors then and now combine.

A wonderful addition! Glad to see Jon Pertwee again!

A BIG THANK YOU to Apple from bringing the Classic Dr Who to a whole new audience! To top it off, several of these shows haven't made it to DVD yet, and that makes it all the more exciting. PBS showed these back in the 70s and 80s, and they edited all the episodes together in 90 minute installments. This is the first time I've seen these unedited and running their full length! Keep it up, Apple! Hopefully we will get some more episodes with the original Doctor, William Hartnell and his encounters with the Daleks, along with with more episodes featuring Patrick Troughton and, of course, Tom Baker and Peter Davison too!


I was happy when iTunes put the new Doctor Who here... this is the icing on the (police box-shaped) cake! I never would have imagined that you guys would give us not only Classic Who, but Classic Who starting not with the Tom Baker years but with Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee! As a certain fellow might say (at least in his 10th incarnation): Brilliant!
