Netflix Kills Dr Who: BBC Plans To Offer All Episodes Through Its Own Website

Fans of the Dr Who series are in a hurry to watch any Dr Who episodes they have missed both new and the classics as Netflix has announced they are removing all Dr Who episodes from its library to make room for the new 2016 lineup. Some of the shows they are adding will be programs like ‘Better Call Saul’, ‘The Lizzie Borden Chronicles’, and of course the popular series ‘Mad Men’.

Who fans from around the world are up in arms as they where last year after Netflix tried to do the same thing and then later changed their mind because of all the backlash from users. So it makes fans wounder if this will happen again.

ShowbizSpy has reached out to our Spy’s within the Netflix organization and unfortunately it is a done deal: “The decision to pull Dr. Who was one made jointly with the BBC as they are now going to be offering all episodes past and present on its own website to viewers.”

New head writer and executive producer Chris Chibnall says: “I believe this will be good for the BBC, I mean there is no reason to offer the same thing that the BBC can offer directly to our fans through an affiliate, yeah?” Chris was also quoted recently after getting the new role for Dr Who: “Doctor Who is the ultimate BBC programme: bold, unique, vastly entertaining, and adored all around the world. So it’s a privilege and a joy to be the next curator of this funny, scary and emotional family drama. I’ve loved Doctor Who since I was four years old, and I’m relishing the thought of working with the exceptional team at BBC Wales to create new characters, creatures and worlds for the Doctor to explore. Steven’s achieved the impossible by continually expanding Doctor Who’s creative ambition, while growing its global popularity. He’s been a dazzling and daring showrunner, and hearing his plans and stories for 2017, it’s clear he’ll be going out with a bang. Just to make my life difficult.”

Here is the current Dr Peter’s take on the original:
