Yay for the 21st Century!

The older I get, the more it was beginning to bother me that I download Doctor Who illegally even though I’m generally very much opposed to illegal downloading. Even though I deleted every episode as soon as I saw it, and then bought the DVDs as soon as I could, it just didn’t feel right.

Imagine my pleasure and discovering that you can now buy them from iTunes the day after they air. Hopefully these are the full episode and not cut all to hell for BBC America, but if they are, the season is so cheap it won’t stop me from buying the discs if I need to. I don’t think they are, though–I’ve bought other episodes via iTunes when only the seasons already on DVD were available, and the episode was identical to the download from the BBC I got.

I’ll miss the BBC announcer’s voice; it was nice to pretend for a moment I lived in the UK, but meh. I’ll live. Guilt-free Doctor Who is mine!

But I’m not watching yesterday’s episode until my wife gets home. That’s love!

    That *is* love. But yeah. If they didn’t want ppl to steal them they’d make them immediately and widely available for a reasonable price. This is a good start in that direction…
