Disney+ Exclusive Internationally!

Doctor Who will be available exclusively on Disney Plus in 100 countries. 

Doctor Who has a lengthy and eventful history on the BBC as a science fiction series. It is known for having two stages, the classic one broadcast between 1963 and 1989 and, the modern series which began in 2005 and continues today.  

A curious piece of data is the show was killed off in 1989 due to falling viewership. But the show was definitively revived in 2005, gaining a high degree of international popularity. 

About what is Doctor Who?

The show follows the Doctor, a human-like alien who travels across space and time in the TARDIS (a self-aware spacecraft capable of traveling through time and space, resembling a blue police box). With a succession of human, and occasionally non-human, companions. The Doctor regenerates into a new persona on a regular basis, a plot mechanism designed to accommodate the departure and replacement of the primary actors. 

Since its inception, Doctor Who has generated significant amounts of products related to the show, from toys to games, stickers, postcards, and action figures. Among the products are board games (Doctor Who – The Game of Time and Space from 1980 and Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space from 2009), books, games, a pinball game from 1992 and video games (Doctor Who: The First Adventure from 1983 and unofficial adaptations of Doctor Who for Amstrad CPC). The city of Daleks is being developed for PC and Mac. 

Even, Doctor Who is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s longest-running science fiction series and is also an icon of British popular culture. 


In July began the conversations between The BBC and Disney, to result in this new agreement, and in conjunction with the agreement, the BBC unveiled a new, retro-styled logo for the show. Although it is unclear whether the streamer will also carry previous episodes of the show from its post-2005 revival or from its original run from 1963 to 1989. 

Doctor Who is now a Disney+

According to a report by Deadline, new Doctor Who episodes will be available exclusively on Disney+. The change will take effect in 2023, just in time for new episodes to begin streaming on the platform. Hey, takes it easy! Nothing will change for viewers in the United Kingdom and Ireland; Doctor Who will continue to stream on the BBC. 

David Tennant will reprise the role in three specials next year, and who played the Doctor from 2005 to 2010. On the other hand, will be Russell T. Davies, who first revived the then-dormant series in 2005, will take their place. Catherine Tate and newcomers Neil Patrick Harris and Yasmin Finney will take their roles alongside Tennant. Then, following Tennant’s specials, Gatwa will take over as the Doctor, making him the first actor of color to do it! 

By the way! I almost forget to tell you the most important part. Doctor Who will return in late 2023 on Disney+. 

If you want me to tell you more… Sorry, my friend, but you will have to discover the rest on your own! We hope you enjoy this latest update!
