UK Doctor Who fans can now stream every episode made since the show’s 2005 revival for free on BBC iPlayer.
Helmed by Russell T Davies, the show’s return initially starred Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper and became an instant cultural phenomenon, breathing new life into a show that BBC managers had long abandoned.
In the thirteen years since debut episode ‘Rose’ first aired, the series has made stars of Eccleston’s successors, David Tennant and Matt Smith.
It’s also attracted established stars including Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, plus guest stars John Hurt, Carey Mulligan, Simon Pegg, Derek Jacobi, Kylie Minogue, Andrew Garfield, Felicity Jones and Bill Nighy.
Now, ahead of Jodie Whittaker’s arrival as the Thirteenth Doctor, all ten series and every special from the past 13 years will be available to watch on iPlayer from Monday 4th June.
Also included is the mini-episode The Night of the Doctor which saw Paul McGann reprise his role as the Eighth Doctor in a one-off special that helped mark the show’s 50th anniversary.
Dan McGolpin, controller of programming for the BBC, said: “We’re reinventing the BBC for a new generation and BBC iPlayer is key to that.
“Bringing back these series of Doctor Who is just part of our offer this summer giving viewers the chance to uncover or rediscover the Doctor’s previous adventures.
“You can also watch the World Cup live in UHD, catch-up on the latest stories unfolding in Albert Square and binge-watch box set drama like Our Girl or comedy like This Country. BBC iPlayer will have something for everyone.”
