BBC’s BritBox Adds Four Decades of Classic ‘Doctor Who’




BritBox is a streaming service co-owned by British broadcasters BBC and ITV along with AMC. BritBox offers ad-free streaming subscription video on-demand (SVOD) to some of the best British TV.

BritBox offers up a comprehensive collection of British content including dramas that have since been unavailable in the U.S. such as New Blood, from novelist Anthony Horowitz, Tutankhamun, The Moonstone and In The Dark from Ordinary Lies writer Danny Brocklehurst. Season premieres of Cold Feet and Silent Witness will also stream on the service alongside popular Brit soaps such as Eastenders, Emmerdale and Holby City, which will be available 24 hours after their UK broadcast.

Now BritBox is the exclusive home to the entire library of classic Doctor Who episodes in the US. Subscribers will now be able to watch the surviving full serials from the 1963 – 1989 show, back when it was awesome. Newer episodes of Doctor Who can be found on Amazon Prime.

Hardcore fans of Doctor Who will be happy to learn that BritBox has pledged to add the audio versions of episodes that have lost their video in the near future. In addition, the catalog will also include short trips and side steps, such as K9 and Company, An Adventure in Space and Time and the first, non-broadcast “pilot” version of An Unearthly Child.
