Doctor Who Premieres May 11th Worldwide!

    It’s finally time to join Ncuti Gatwa as The Doctor. Well, almost. We still have just under 2 months to wait for his first series to start. Today, the BBC has announced when Doctor Who will return to our screens. In an exciting announcement, we learnt that Doctor Who Premieres May 11th on both BBC iPlayer and Disney+ for worldwide viewers. Though, there is a twist. Doctor Who will now land at midnight with TWO episodes. However, that’s not all.

    For the first time ever, the Doctor will land with TWO episodes premiering on BBC iPlayer at midnight before arriving on BBC One later that day, right before the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final. At the same time, those outside of the UK can watch the Doctor and Ruby (Millie Gibson) on their epic adventures as the TARDIS is set to land on Disney+ where available.

    Viewers in the UK can now watch Doctor Who whenever and wherever they choose. For example, the option to stream at midnight on BBC iPlayer or tune in at primetime on Saturday nights on BBC One.
