The original seven Doctors have a new home in America. Retro TV announced on Wednesday that it signed an agreement with BBC Worldwide North America for the broadcast rights to Doctor Who. The agreement covers the legendary BBC science fiction program’s original 1963-1989 run.
The deal covers “just under 500” episodes featuring the first seven Doctors (William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, Colin Baker, and Sylvester McCoy). It’s not clear whether the agreement covers the recently recovered episodes from the Patrick Troughton-era serials “The Enemy of the World” and “The Web of Fear”
