Doctor Who Moves to Disney+ In 2023
The BBC and Disney have announced that Disney+ will become the exclusive global streaming home for Doctor Who in 2023. A Disney+ Canada spokesperson has confirmed to Canadian media outlets that this includes Canada.
The new episodes of the long-running British sci-fi series are set to release on Disney+ and BBC in late 2023. Russell T. Davies, who spearheaded the 2005 revival of Doctor Who, serves as showrunner on the upcoming season. It was also confirmed that future seasons of Doctor Who will be cofunded by Disney.
Ncuti Gatwa will play the Fifteenth Doctor in the new season, while fan-favourite David Tennant will return to play the Fourteenth Doctor in three 2023 holiday specials. Catherine Tate, who played Donna Noble alongside Tennant’s Doctor, will also reprise the role for the three specials.
