Android users make up an increasing percentage of the mobile market and we're thrilled that they’ll now be able to find their way out of our mazes."

Doctor Who is one of BBC Worldwide's flagship brands, sold in over 50 territories worldwide. The Season Six premiere of the BBC TV series recently became the most watched programme ever on BBC America, while the same episode is officially the most requested show of all time on the BBC iPlayer in the UK.
