It’s the end… but the moment has been prepared for!
Fear not, brave citizens of Canada, for when Netflix ceases to offer Doctor Who you will be saved by CraveTV who will take up the mantle of satisfying your Time Lord cravings!
Matt Forde, EVP Content Production, Sales and Distribution, BBC Worldwide North America, says:
“Bell Media and Space have done a phenomenal job with one of the BBC’s crown jewels, Doctor Who. They have nurtured it, and built it, and are now going to make it accessible to everyone on multiple platforms – exclusively. This longstanding partnership exemplifies dedication in giving the fans what they want, when they want it, and hopefully attracting loads more along the way.”
Doctor Who News have reported on this and accompanied the news with lots of demographics and statistics and probably other stuff ending with “…ics”, most noteworthy of which is that the last Christmas special, The Husbands of River Song, was the most watched show on Christmas Day in Canada! Nice.
Series 9 will become available in the summer with Series 1-8 following suit later in the year after the agreement with Netflix expires. Series 10 onwards will be shown on SPACE first and will then move to CraveTV for streaming after the series has finished its run.
