1 Tru Who Coming To Twitch! on Wed May 23, 2018 6:22 pm

Over 500 classic episodes from the 26 seasons of classic Doctor Who will air worldwide on the live streaming video platform Twitch from May 29th.

Fans will be able to watch adventures from the first seven Doctors – from 1963’s An Unearthly Child to 1989’s Survival – while chatting live to thousands of other viewers around the world.

This epic screening of classic Doctor Who from May 29th until July 23rd follows Twitch’s successful marathons of Power Rangers, Bob Ross: The Joy of Painting and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

In addition to the episodes being screened in blocks - three times a day, around the world, completely free - fans can also enjoy a heap of exclusive Twitch content.

Doctor Who emotes

There will be prizes

For fans in the US, UK, and Canada, Twitch is hosting a giveaway each week of the event, including a grand prize trip to London Comic-Con. For details on how to enter and full terms and conditions visit: https://watch.twitch.tv/DoctorWhoSweepstakes

With a cast of Doctor Who screenwriters, experts, fans, and even a former companion, the Yogscast's Turps, and resident Doctor Who expert Matt Toffolo discuss why modern audiences should LOVE classic Doctor Who (as if we needed a reason!).

Here's the schedule for Brit Bongs

https://www.doctorwho.tv/watch/twitch/#UK

Unfortunately, they're not showing any Dalek stories that aren't by Terry Nation, or Planet of Fire or missing stories (even ones with animated recons)

Should be interesting, Zarius. Hopefully the chat isn't full of berks.

I sampled the chat yesterday...loads of Nu Who fans in there who are looking forward to Jodie. Had to break the bad news about the scheduling a couple of times to them.

I imagine there'll be some spectacular opportunities for wind ups in that chat. LOL LOL LOL

Hmm, now if there was only a way of convincing some of them that Jodie was going to regenerate into a man in a Golden Retriever furry suit at the end of the season, and that the show was going to be renamed 'Dogtor Who'...

The marathon has started, you won't believe it, but the pre-show introducing the stream went on to spoil every plot point of the first two series before any of it has even aired yet. I shit you not! LOL

Loved the chat last night...especially with The Daleks ("MY LEGS, MY LEGS", "RIP LEGS", "OOF")

"FFS SUSAN"

Also, "WE MADE IT, LONDON 1965" LOL

een watching Keys of Marinus over on Twitch...lots of fun with the second episode, that should have been a standalone story in itself, it'd make a good New Who episode actually. Barbera's "evasion" of her pursuers amused the Twitch chat, who responded with "Stealth 100", when we got to Ian being framed for murder and the trial, the chat exploded into references to Sherlock and CSI

It looks like Twitch have missed out a few stories including Day of the Daleks, Ressurection of the Daleks, Planet of Fire, Revelation of the Daleks and Remembrance of the Daleks. I wonder why that is. Sad

Rights issues with the Nation Estate I imagine, no idea why they're skipping Planet of Fire.

Watching Planet of Giants/Dalek Invasion of Earth/Rescue/Romans right now...chat's been great, when the Doctor offered Vickie the trip in the TARDIS one commented it was his first sales pitch

I don't think it's anything to do with the Nation estate because Twitch are showing the other Dalek stories.

Someone said Robert Holmes was like the RTD of Classic Who during the Krotons yesterday because they both wrote a lot of episodes and sometimes re-wrote other people's episodes

I don't mean to be dismissive but you could make the same argument about Terrence Dicks and Steven Moffat. Lots of showrunners/head writers rewrite other people's work, often uncredited, it's part of the job

I agree with you. I was proper outraged when I saw that

All the ones by Terry Nation are being streamed. That has everything to do with the estate.

DWM references one of the Twitch memes



In the meantime, I managed to catch some Wieng-Chiang and Fang Rock, but it was too hot to stay glued to the computer all morning so I missed a lot of it. Don't really fancy any of the stories on tonight other than maybe Sun Makers and Fendhal (never seen the latter)
