Doctor Who is a series that has been around for over 50 years, and no matter what age you are, there is something for everyone in the series. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to stream the show on its glorious day!
The reason today is Doctor Who Day is that the show premiered back on November 23, 1963. Yes, the show has been on that long.
For starters, to stream “The Day of the Doctor” episode, which is the show’s 50th anniversary special that has the 11th Doctor, 10th Doctor and War Doctor in it, you can currently stream it on Prime Video.
The same can be said for the new Doctor Who (2005-present) series for seasons 1-10 that can be found to stream (again) on Prime Video. To watch and stream season 11, it can be purchased on the Apple TV app for $25.99.
To watch Classic Doctor Who, there is a great and free way to do it. It is through the Classic Doctor Who channel on Pluto TV. The channel is completely free, but you have to watch ads and the episodes from the Classic series are not available on-demand on Pluto TV either.
The premium route to go is going to be through Britbox, which has all 26 seasons of Classic Doctor Who available to stream. Britbox does cost $6.99 a month, but you are able to get a free trial of it, so if you are looking to use a free trial to watch Classic Doctor Who, now would be a good time to do so.
As for the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie, there are not really any places to stream that, or at least not through providers like Prime Video, Netflix or Hulu. Heck, even iTunes and the Apple TV app don’t have it, which says something.
We hope that you have a good day (and perhaps an entire weekend) watching both classic and new Doctor Who. It has been a show that continues to have a strong and dedicated fanbase, and I have no doubt that that will be the case for years to come.
