The Doctor will see you now

Before Daleks became a modern sci-fi staple, and before Weeping Angels made Whovians too scared to sleep, Doctor Who was a bold and quirky sci-fi show with hundreds of classic episodes. Starting May 29, we’re bringing you over 500 of them. You may need a Tardis to watch it all…

Join us and tons of other fans in Twitch chat for over seven weeks of classic Doctor Who, starting with the 1963 episode “An Unearthly Child.” Together we’ll make our way through the first seven Doctors spanning 26 seasons. Come relive (or experience for the first time ever) the origins of the iconic Daleks, the Cybermen, and the trusty Sonic Screwdriver. New episodes will air every day for eight hours starting at 11AM PDT followed immediately by two eight-hour repeat blocks, so no matter where you live you won’t have to miss a beat.

We’ll of course have exclusive Doctor Who emotes for everyone who subs to /twitchpresents, as well as a shiny new Tardis Cheermote, but there are plenty more reasons to stick around. First, we’re partnering with Yogscast to bring you seven new episodes featuring a cast of Doctor Who screenwriters, experts, and fans who will introduce each new Doctor and highlight some of the best upcoming story arcs.

We’re also giving away Doctor Who fan packs (which include a Tardis money box, a themed Monopoly set, and Doctor Who doormat) and a grand prize trip to London Comic Con. We’ll have the Doctor Who Watch to Win Extension active during the stream, so all you have to do to enter is log in to Twitch from a platform that supports the extension, opt-in to the Sweepstakes, and watch at least 10 minutes of Doctor Who within the same calendar day. You can get up to five entries per week. For full details and entry instructions, check out the Official Rules.

All the classic Who kicks off May 29 at 11AM PDT. Don’t worry about getting a seat. Twitch Chat’s bigger on the inside.
