There have been rumblings this might be the case for some time now, but the BBC and Disney+ have confirmed plans for Doctor Who to stream exclusively on the service outside the UK and Ireland.

While the BBC will continue to be the show's home there, overseas fans will be able to tune into new seasons on Disney+. Under a shared creative vision, they will deliver this quintessentially British show to future generations on an unprecedented scale, and the next Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa, broke the news on Live with Kelly and Ryan earlier today. 

It's said that both partners have aligned under returning showrunner Russell T Davies' bold vision, who takes control of the TARDIS in 2023. He was responsible for Doctor Who's revival in 2005 and is credited with propelling the show into one of TV's biggest hits.

Davies says, "I love this show, and this is the best of both worlds –-with the vision and joy of the BBC and Disney+ together we can launch the TARDIS all around the planet, reaching a new generation of fans while keeping our traditional home firmly on the BBC in the UK."

Disney+ President Alisa Bowen adds, "We're excited by the opportunity to bring new seasons of this beloved franchise exclusively to Disney+ and introduce the show to the next generation of audiences in more than 150 markets around the world."

"The series is a perfect addition to our ever-growing catalog of global content that continues to make Disney+ the home for exceptional storytelling."

The new episodes of Doctor Who will return to screens in November 2023 to coincide with the 60th anniversary and will premiere exclusively on the BBC for the UK and Ireland. David Tennant will play the Fourteenth Doctor for three specials, before Ncuti Gatwa takes over the role as the Fifteenth Doctor over the festive season.

"Bold New Logo" It's literally Tom Baker's old logo with some depth & a yellow outline around "WHO" added in. I love that era, logo & Tom's Doctor, but it's weird seeing them go back to the vertical alignment of the title when RTD stablished the NuWho format of having the full name horizontally, which has endured this whole time.
