Watch to Air The Doctors Revisited in UK!

BBC America series The Doctors Revisited is to receive a UK airing on Watch as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations.


The 11-part serial focuses an episode on each incarnation of The Doctor and has been airing monthly in the USA since January. UK viewers will get a more concentrated burst starting on Saturday October 12th with The First Doctor at 2:00pm. The Second Doctor follows at the same time the next day, and it looks like further episodes will run in the same weekend pattern.

Each half hour episode will be followed by a showing of a story from the respective Doctor’s era. So we can look forward to rare TV screenings of The Aztecs, Tomb of the Cybermen, Spearhead from Space and Pyramids of Mars, although no further stories from later Doctors are listed as yet in the channel’s schedules.

Fans in the UK will be pleased this show is finally getting an airing after it’s been seen in the USA, Australia and New Zealand, but many will surely be frustrated it’s on a subscription channel. There’s certainly a wealth of viewing and listening to look forward to over the anniversary period – perhaps a bumper size box set gathering it all together is in order?

has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now. When he's not at his job working for a charity he spends his time following Hull City's fortunes, listening to Bruce Springsteen and wondering why it took thirty years too long for Doctor Who action figures to come along. Currently reading: Frank Skinner interview in DWM. That guy seriously loves this show...

    If we aren’t to get these on a non subscription channel here in the UK I really hope we see them on The Day of The Doctor DvD release. The best ‘era’ documentary was the one narrated by David Tennant and aired on BBC1 just before Rose. That has never been repeated or presented on a Boxset. It would be good to see that updated and extented.
