Everyone Panic! Doctor Who Is No Longer Available On Netflix America!
The BBC dealt a massive blow to Whovians across America, and they are not happy. Doctor Who is no longer available for streaming on Netflix or Hulu and fans are taking to social media to voice their discontent. Some are upset because they aren’t able to re-watch their favourite show, while others were in the middle of binge watching and had not yet finished the series.

No one is quite sure why the BBC decided to pull The Doctor from the streaming services, but some suspect the reason being that the BBC is set to release their own Netflix-style streaming service sometime in the future. Since Doctor Who has such a large American fanbase, the BBC probably hopes pulling the series will gaurantee a lot of overseas subscriptions. There are other series set to expire as well such as Luther, Torchwood, and Wallander.
No comment has been made on the subject by the BBC or said streaming sites, but people are asking for answers. An official date for the BBC streaming service has not yet been announced and until then, Americans will remain Doctor-less. And no amount of time and space could ever heal that wound!
