It’s a nice time to be an Anglophile with the March launch of BritBox. For $6.99 a month, users have been privy to upwards of 2,000 hours of British programming through the streaming service, created in collaboration with BBC Worldwide and the UK commercial broadcaster, ITV.

With a diverse collection that ranges from the classic Ricky Gervais comedy “The Office” and long-running British soap “Emmerdale,” there was still a Tardis-shaped hole in their programming. Lucky for loyal Whovians out there, one of the cornerstones of classic British television has come to BritBox. “Doctor Who” is coming to the platform with a full collection of Classic era episodes – that is, the episodes of “Doctor Who” which ran from 1963-1989.

If only the service was available in fucking Britain.

Its a damn shame that the horror channel stopped showing them because I think that was as close as we're ever going to get for repeats now that channels like UKTV Gold has gone.

I see Doctor Who on the W channel quite regularly but it's always the new series. They'll show it for hours on end.

I miss watching classic episodes on saturday mornings, it's a shame UK Gold became GOLD and only seems to show the same handful of sitcoms.

Better than the BBC's respect for the Classic Series, UK Gold did more justice to the show than W.
I really enjoyed the recent run (Some with changed cliffhangers?) on the Horror Channel.

Although at first with the Horror Channel repeats I thought "Aww, bless!" as they were using the pre-digitally remastered versions!
Lucky you if you saw those as you'll never see them in that grainy quality on TV ever again!

So do you think BBC Enterprises or whoever they are called now, are putting pressure on Britbox to be unavailable to er... Brits?
