When is Doctor Who on Disney Plus?


As of the 60th Anniversary release, Doctor Who will be available on Disney Plus for audiences in the United States. The series will unveil three specials marking this event. Here’s the schedule for the release of these specials on Disney Plus:

The Star Beast: The first new episode of the Anniversary Specials premiered on Saturday, November 25 at 10:30 am PT / 1:30 pm ET.
Wild Blue Yonder: This special is set to be available on Disney Plus on Saturday, December 2.
The Giggle: The third special is scheduled for release on Saturday, December 9.

Additionally, a Christmas special is set to premiere on December 25, introducing Ncuti Gatwa as the latest Time Lord. This Christmas special will also be part of the new content on Disney Plus next month.


For viewers in the UK, the new Doctor Who episodes will be accessible on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. However, Disney Plus serves as the platform for those in the United States to enjoy these new episodes.

At present, Disney Plus hasn’t made any official announcements regarding the entire Doctor Who collection becoming available on their streaming service. While there’s no confirmation about the entire back catalog, all new Doctor Who episodes will eventually find their way onto Disney Plus. Therefore, there’s a possibility that Disney Plus will acquire the full Doctor Who history at some point.

For those eager to catch up on past episodes of the series, they can be streamed on other platforms like HBO Max.
