Where to watch Doctor Who


What is Doctor Who about?

The Doctor, from a race called the Time Lords/Ladies whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in his/her ship the TARDIS (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimension In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time he/she regenerates into a new form (which is how the series has been running since 1963).

Streaming on iPlayer

BBC’s answer to the streaming world is the iPlayer, which is very handy considering all BBC content is Free. It’s the ideal way to catch up on your favourite shows On Demand, and has a little something for just about everybody.

Got a question about BBC?

As BBC is a public service they’re duty-bound to cater for all tastes, meaning users can watch everything from Eastenders and Strictly to Match Of The Day and Peppa Pig. There are also tons of wildlife and history documentaries to sink your teeth into
iPlayer is exclusively available in the UK. If you’re travelling abroad you will not be able to access the service as the BBC do not have overseas rights.
iPlayer is definitely broader in terms of content and therefore better for families or those who like a little bit of everything. It could be argued that All 4 have a better selection of modern culture shows and comedy series.


  • It’s free
  • Available on a wide range of devices
  • HD steaming option
  • TV Shows, Movies, Kids TV and Live Sport

Rent or Stream with iTunes.

With iTunes, you can rent or or buy your favourite shows and movies and watch them across all your linked devices be it iOS or Android powered.

Got a question about iTunes?

You can access content in two ways. You can rent content for a limited period of time, during which you can watch whenever you want. Or you can buy content which will put it into your library and you will be able to watch as many times as you want whenever you want.
No, iTunes is not a streaming service. There is no on-going subscription to be paid, or varying levels service. Simply pay for what you want to watch and you can watch it straight away. This is great for the odd show or movie that your other streaming subscriptions do not have.
