Another home for Doctor Who

Quick! Tell me where you can watch Doctor Who.

Okay, that's unfair. Mostly because there are so many different places where you can watch the iconic British TV show.

Of course, part of the answer depends on which incarnation of the show you are talking about. The classic shows air on different networks, but the revival series (sometimes called NuWho) has aired live on BBC America for some time, while the rest of the NuWho episodes are on HBO Max.

Starting in November 2023, Disney Plus is the new home of new episodes of Doctor Who.

Ncuti Gatwa, who will star as the 15th Doctor following Tennant's second run, announced that the beloved sci-fi series would be moving to Disney+ during an appearance this morning on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Russell T Davies, who acted as showrunner for the series from 2005 to 2009, will return along with Tennant.

"I love this show, and this is the best of both worlds—with the vision and joy of the BBC and Disney+ together we can launch the TARDIS all around the planet, reaching a new generation of fans while keeping our traditional home firmly on the BBC in the UK," Davies said.

New episodes of Doctor Who will be streaming on Disney+ starting in late November 2023, while BBC will continue to host the series in the UK and Ireland.

I've seen some in the UK upset about this, but it doesn't really impact them. They may not realize that. A lot of people will react without getting all of the facts. People are awful, amiright?

Anyway, it's not known of the previous seasons of NuWho will follow to Disney Plus, if they'll remain on HBO Max, or if another service will become home to the shows.

And classic Doctor Who will remain on BritBox for the time being, as well as part of linear streaming channels on Pluto TV, Xumo, Plex, and other services. It's pretty easy to have classic Doctor Who as a part of your Streaming Life, but NuWho will be a little more complicated in a little over a year.
