Doctor Who is exclusive to Amazon Prime in the US



Doctor Who is returning to the US streaming market exclusively on Amazon Prime from 27th March. Eight series of the current run, including specials, will be available.

Netflix and Hulu's contracts expired in February and weren't renewed amid speculation the BBC was about to launch a rival subscription-based streaming service.

No news on whether or not the popular sci-fi series will remain on Amazon Prime and Netflix in the UK.

Meanwhile, Peter Capaldi revealed Jenna Coleman's replacement aboard the TARDIS has been cast for series 10. However, Capaldi didn't say who. Former EastEnders actress Rakhee Thakrar has been linked to the role.

The current iteration of Doctor Who began broadcasting on BBC America in 2006.
