American Home For Classic Who

It’s not always easy finding classic Doctor Who on tv. Just a few months ago the Horror Channel started showing some of the classics in the UK and there was an announcement Wednesday of a similar deal for the US.

Retro TV has signed an agreement with BBC WW NA (that’s BBC World Wide North America, in case you didn’t know) for the broadcast rights to Doctor Who covering  “just under 500” episodes from 1963- 1989 featuring Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee, Baker, Davison, Baker and McCoy. No word yet on whether Enemy Of The World and Web Of Fear will be included.

Matthew Golden, Luken’s Vice President of Production, said,

“We couldn’t be more excited to make legendary classic episodes of Doctor Who available nationwide. The series is an institution, and we’re proud to give fans new and old the opportunity to experience this groundbreaking series from the very beginning.”

The show will make its Retro TV debut this summer.
