How Much Doctor Who is Streaming on Netflix and Amazon?

2011-03-07 19:49

Warning to readers: this list is out of date!

Nicholas Courtney’s death reminded me of all the many years of Doctor Who that I have yet to watch. With the series’ fiftieth anniversary coming up in 2013, I’ve realized that there’s no better time to get back into classic Doctor Who. Here’s my list of Doctor Who stories that are available through Netflix’s streaming service. I’ve also tried to list DVDs available in Region 1, and whether Netflix carries them for mailing.

Since the list is already very long, the new Doctor Who series are available in a separate post here.

As the Netflix streaming inventory constantly changes, I will try to keep this updated when I can. Please put any inaccuracies or improvements in the comments, and I’ll fix the list. Thanks!

  1. This list is amazing. I wish I’d found it earlier. I just completed watching the entire 26 years of episodes including the fan restorations. Took about six months of watching as my bed time viewing so to speak.

    It’s an adventure down the memory lane of television history.

  3. Thank you so much!!! I’ve been wanting to check out classic who for ages, but didn’t think I could without purchasing everything. Now I realize I can if I upgrade my netflix subscription. I am totally doing so.
