Doctor Who will appear on Disney+ for everyone outside the UK and Ireland –

Although Doctor Who is one of the longest-running sci-fi television series of all time, it is not as global a product as Star Trek, and is more of a British-based product. That’s about to change, however, as the BBC has struck a deal with Disney to see Doctor Who come to Disney+ exclusively for all viewers outside the UK and Ireland.

According to a press release, we’re told that this will mark a move to “make Doctor Who a global franchise for UK audiences and the rest of the world”. Although, despite the wider scope, the series will still be produced by Bad Wolf and BBC Studios in Wales, under the watchful eye of showrunner Russell T Davies.

Speaking on the subject, Davies added: “I love this series and it’s the best of both worlds – with the vision and joy of the BBC and Disney+ together, we can launch the TARDIS across the planet and reach a new generation of fans, while keeping our traditional home at the BBC in Great Britain. “

New episodes of Doctor Who will be shown in the UK on the BBC and elsewhere on Disney+, with new episodes arriving in November 2023, with David Tennant becoming the 14th Doctor before Ncuti Gatwa takes over as the 15th Doctor.
