Modern Doctor Who is available on Netflix

New Doctor Who Added To Netflix UK!

Netflix subscribers in the UK can now enjoy all of the first six series of new Doctor Who with the addition of Matt Smith’s second run of episodes.

Series 6 forms part of a new batch of BBC material available on the subscription service, with the first two series of Sherlock also now available to view for subscribers in the UK and Ireland.

Originally aired in two batches in 2011, the series commenced with the shocking events at Lake Silencio in The Impossible Astronaut and went on to explore Amy’s pregnancy, River’s parentage and how the Doctor managed to (spoiler alert) cheat death.

Netflix are notoriously guarded about revealing information on their subscriber numbers, but if word of mouth in pubs I go in is anything to go by (admittedly not the most rigorous form of polling) it does seem to be attracting an expanding customer base with a good line up of shows available, plus exclusives such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Head to to sample the goods.

What do you think? Are you less inclined to bother buying box sets now in this era of streaming?
