Doctor Who fans rejoice! While you may have to wait until August 23rd for the season premiere of BBC AMERICA’a hit, Hulu will be your destination for two exclusive Doctor Who specials, one of which is a U.S. premiere, and two Classic Doctor Who stories that were recovered in 2013 after being lost for over 30 years!
Doctor Who follows the adventures of an eccentric Time Lord and his courageous companions throughout all of space and time.
Starting today, users can head to Hulu to watch Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide. This two hour scripted special makes its U.S. debut exclusively on Hulu and features Matt Smith as the Doctor, and Jenna Coleman as his companion, Clara Oswald. In The Ultimate Guide, the Doctor has lost his memory and Clara helps him to take an in-depth look at the past of one of the most intriguing fictional characters of all time. This special is a great recap of some of the biggest and most memorable moments from the series, and offers a great summary to newcomers.
And, that’s not all. Over the next month leading up to BBC AMERICA’s season premiere, Hulu will add several more specials to give fans even more Doctor Who, including the 50th Anniversary Special: The Day of the Doctor (David Tennant returns alongside Matt Smith), and the 2013 Christmas Special Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor, the regeneration episode which marks the conclusion of Matt Smith and introduces Peter Capaldi in the role of the Doctor.
Here at Hulu, we are huge fans of the series and we are thrilled to be a streaming home of so much great content from BBC AMERICA’s hit – the longest running sci-fi series in history.
