If you are a fan of the hit BBC series Doctor Who, Disney has some big news for you. Today the BBC and Disney have announced that Doctor Who will have a new home on Disney+ outside of the UK and Ireland. This epic team-up of the BBC and Disney will take place in 2023 when David Tennant will play the Fourteenth Doctor before Ncuti Gatwa takes over as the Fifteenth Doctor. You can check out the official details from this announcement below.
DISNEY+ TO BECOME THE NEW GLOBAL HOME FOR UPCOMING SEASONS OF DOCTOR WHO OUTSIDE THE UK & IRELAND
Today the BBC and Disney Branded Television – two giants of entertainment – have come together to transform Doctor Who into a global franchise for UK audiences and the rest of the world.
Under a shared creative vision, they will deliver this quintessentially British show to future generations on an unprecedented scale with Disney+ as the exclusive home for new seasons of Doctor Who outside the UK and Ireland. The announcement – which was made this morning by the next Doctor Who, Ncuti Gatwa, during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan – begins a new collaboration between BBC and Disney Branded Television.
Both partners have aligned under returning showrunner Russell T Davies’ bold vision, who takes control of the TARDIS in 2023. He was responsible for Doctor Who’s revival in 2005 and is credited with propelling the show into one of TV’s biggest hits.
The show will be produced in Wales by Bad Wolf with BBC Studios Production.
