While the series has been running for sixty years, with the new season, it’s being reset back to season one since Disney has become involved, and they want it to be a jumping-on point for new viewers.  This isn’t the first time the show has reset, as it did so back in 2005 after being revived after many years.

“Doctor Who” will premiere simultaneously for the first time on BBC iPlayer in the UK and on Disney+ around the world. 

In the UK, the first two new episodes of the season will premiere at midnight on 11th May 2024 on BBC iPlayer, and then on BBC One later that day. Episodes will drop on BBC iPlayer followed by a primetime slot on BBC One each week following that.

Outside the UK, Doctor Who begins streaming on 10th May 2024 at 7 pm ET on Disney+, where available, giving audiences a simultaneous global launch.

You can find the “The Church on Ruby Road” Christmas special, along with the three 60th anniversary specials on Disney+ around the world.
