One of the questions we are asked often is how to watch the new (2010) episodes of Doctor Who. As one might guess, these questions for the most part come from outside of the UK. Obviously for those in the UK, one just has to check the Radio Times listings to see where and when they can watch new episodes of Doctor Who on the various BBC channels and/or the BBC iPlayer.
Outside of the UK though, it is trickier, but there are various choices. It comes down to the digital medium, be it digital downloads, streaming, or on a physical disc or transmission/broadcast medium (which today is digital as well, but we get too technical here).
BBC America had its ratings records broken with the premiere of Doctor Who this past Saturday, the 17th of April, 2010.

If you missed Matt Smith's first full episode as the Doctor on BBC America, you can now purchase the episode from Apple's iTunes. Doctor Who: The Eleventh Hour is now available on iTunes (in the US).
If your television service provider doesn't carry BBC America, don't let that stop you from enjoying the exciting new series of Doctor Who.
