Every Doctor Who episode since 2005 returning to iPlayer

With a few months still to go until Series 11, fans will no doubt be rewatching episodes to pass the time away. But what if you don’t have the DVDs? Well, the BBC have just announced something that will solve that issue.

As of today, every episode of Doctor Who since 2005 will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer – including all 10 series and all the specials, as well as the mini-episode The Night of the Doctor

The BBC have previously done this with shows like Our Girl and The Bridge, not only allowing fans to revisit their favourite episodes, but also to draw new viewers in and binge watch a whole series. Of course, Doctor Who has several ‘eras’ with different Doctors, so new viewers will be able to watch from Series 1 and see Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi playing their respective Doctors.

Dan McGolpin, controller of programming for the BBC, said: 

“We’re reinventing the BBC for a new generation and BBC iPlayer is key to that. Bringing back these series of Doctor Who is just part of our offer this summer giving viewers the chance to uncover or rediscover the Doctor’s previous adventures. You can also watch the World Cup live in UHD, catch-up on the latest stories unfolding in Albert Square and binge-watch box set drama like Our Girl or comedy like This Country. BBC iPlayer will have something for everyone.”

What better way to spend your summer than to relive the Doctor’s adventures all over again.
