  • Not available problems

    By Paul ellard
    The show was aired dec 2017 25th but is not available yet sound familiar.......most purchasers have been issued credits or a refund but with its uk release on dvd and Blu-ray Monday 22nd January it is my suspicion that iTunes will list it as early release on sat or Friday before as they did last year yes I agree badly advertised but still before hits the shops.
  • Another unsatisfactory purchase

    By Another Amateur
    I'd love to review this, but we've arrived at 12th Night and I'm still trying to access the programme I bought on Christmas Day. I've just had a chat with an "Advisor" who has ordered me a refund some time in the next ten days and tells me that the episode hasn't come up as available!! Then when I asked what to do next The Advisor (I hope there's a Timelord called that ...) I got "Your session has ended. Thanks for chatting with us. Sorry, but we weren't able to email your chat transcript." Having watched DW since the first episode aired in 1963 I think I'm getting too old for all this modern stuff. A 1* rating for this complete lack of service is being generous. Rant over.
  • Bought the episode but can only watch the trailer

    By Dave8001
    As above, bought the episode but I can only watch the trailer. No update as to when the actual episode would be released - same difficulty last year, turned out they had miss assigned the special and never bothered to rectify it.
  • Ripped Off

    so I paid when the price was £3 odd and expected to be able to download the ep at leas by boxing day but it is now Jan 2nd and it still won't let me download the episode! all I can watch is the stinking trailer! iTunes you are getting worse and worse and effing worse!!! I think I will just switch to amazon or something if this keeps happening.

    Ordered what was advertised as the Christmas episode only to end up paying £3.99 for a 2 minute trailer. Where’s the button to download the proper episode? Sort it out iTunes.
  • Still waiting

    By Chris in Poland
    Am still waiting for this to become available on iTunes. I paid before, and now it's the 27th,and still it's not on here. I dont use Itunes to be told to watch what I paid on BBC1 ! *** After reading the confirmation from Apple, it says that we only paid to see the advert, not the episode!!! am furious!!! Check your email on this one guys!! —-it’s now the 28th ad the episode shows no sign of emerging . Get your act together guys. Funny how the refund button isn’t available on this one. —- *** 1/1/18 now. You still haven’t bloody released the episode as stated on iTunes. Bloody useless ***
  • Apple misleads its pre-order customers

    By bigron008
    This was a fantastic Christmas Special marred by the fact that I bought it as a pre-order for £3.99 and all that Apple gave me access to in the end was the Trailer (freely available elsewhere). I had to contact Apple and was told that even though I had clicked on the price at the top of the series (for the whole four-elements of the Series - not a link next to the Trailer) their system only recognised that I had purchased the Trailer. They have issued a refund but massively misrepresented what they were actually selling as being “the Series”. I mistakingly thought better of Apple. They can’t even honour their own errors, be they accidental or deliberate! Since this happening I have been given my refund and have been able to re-order the series through the top link at £3.99 and get the whole four elements of the series. Hmmmmm!!!!
  • Once again iTunes fails to deliver

    By amjacks
    Having pre-ordered the Christmas Special - Itunes now reports I purchased the "trailer". - they messed this up last year and obviouslt have not learned!
  • Ask for refund

    By CARLPEZ 79
    After purchasing this before Christmas Day and the BBC airing it, all I could obtain was the trailer for £3.99 hoping after Xmas I would have access to the main programme & extras (season pass!) Alas this wasn’t so, apparently I had spent £3.99 on a 1 min trailer. I contacted apple support & got a refund, they said to try purchasing it again. When I went back it was still priced at £3.99 which (apprehensively) I was unsure about purchasing again. I took the Gamble & tried it. I now have full access to everything including the 1hr Xmas special. So apple cocked and rectified it by refunding me and was able to purchase again at £3.99 with all the trimmings!
