The complete 1963-1989 run of Doctor Who has been made available in the U.S. for the first time since the show was removed from Netflix last year.
Formerly to be found in it’s entirety on Netflix, the Classic Series was moved to Amazon Prime by the BBC in 2016, yet only in a semi-complete form. With several episodes listed as unavailable. Those wishing to have access to a complete collection online have been left with few options – until now.
As of this week, all 26 classic seasons of Doctor Who have been made available to stream on BritBox, alongside extras such as The Doctors Revisited and lots, lots more. The service will also soon include audio versions of the lost Hartnell and Troughton episodes, making the collection the most complete assembled anywhere online.
BritBox president Soumya Sriraman said:
“Doctor Who continues to be a global phenomenon that spans generations. Whovians in the U.S. now have a one-stop-shop for the most comprehensive catalog of classic Doctor Who to either relive the exciting adventures with their favorite Classic Doctors, or experience for the first time how it all began.”
The episodes are categorised, broken down chronologically by Doctor, alongside playlist collections of episodes on individual topics such as differing monsters or companions. The service is available on responsive web, Apple TV, iPhone, iPad and Android mobile phones and tablets, with Roku and Chromecast following shortly.
BritBox features a wide lineup of British TV programming including British soaps and dramas such as EastEnders, Emmerdale, Holby City, Casualty, Are You Being Served?, Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers, The Office, Blackadder and much more. BritBox was created by BBC Worldwide and ITV with AMC Networks as an investor.
BritBox charges $6.99 a month for their U.K TV archive with a seven-day free trial.
