ONE Store Beta Now Available

In what is a first for the storied franchise, the next Doctor Who season is coming to Disney+ worldwide, simultaneously with its BBC broadcast.

Previously, Doctor Who wasn’t streamed simultaneously on a major streaming platform worldwide, which is great news for many Whovians. After all, Doctor Who may be an icon of the UK, but its appeal has become global over the past decade.

Specifically, fans will be able to watch “The Church on Ruby Road” on May 11. This is an episode that premiered last December, and after this, fans can watch two all-new episodes.


This new season of “Doctor Who” promises to be an exciting one for fans as it follows the Doctor and Ruby Sunday. As shown in the trailer, the two will journey through various locations and times, including Regency era in England to war-torn futures.

Meanwhile, the series stars Aneurin Barnard, Anita Dobson, Yasmin Finney, Michelle Greenidge, Jonathan Groff, Bonnie Langford, Genesis Lynea, Jemma Redgrave, Lenny Rush, Indira Varma and Angela Wynter.

Regarding the new season, the series’ showrunner, executive producer and writer Russell T Davies said: “At last, it’s my great delight to unleash a whole new season of the Doctor and Ruby’s adventures together. Monsters! Chases! Villains! Mysteries! And a terrifying secret that’s been spanning time and space for decades. Don’t miss a second!”

The latest season of Doctor Who will be streamed on Disney+ worldwide beginning May 11, 2024.

Aside from this iconic BBC series, Disney+ also has quite the lineup this year, with hit shows like Shogun and X-Men ’97.
