Doctor Who to be Available Through Amazon Video?

Doctor Who fans rejoice: Series 1 to 8 are coming to Amazon Prime Video in America!

Whovians in the USA panicked earlier this month when the show disappeared off Netflix, but thanks to a now-deleted tweet, we can gather that the first eight series of NuWho will be on fellow streaming service, Amazon Prime.

This is definitely good news, as it’s one of the only ways (aside from turning to the DVDs) of seeing Doctor Who this year, as only one new episode will air – and that at Christmas, so officially ages away!

If the TV show is indeed part of Amazon’s March line-up, the tweet might’ve disappeared because no official announcement has been made from any streaming companies or the BBC.

Doctor Who will also be vanishing from Netflix in the UK come May unless a deal is reached. A BBC Representative told the Radio Times:

“We will announce all details in due course.”

… Which admittedly isn’t a great insight.

We’ll have to await an official confirmation about this possible deal with Amazon Prime Video, but things are looking up!
