Doctor Who is coming back to streaming. Yay! To Amazon Prime! Hmm...

It was a real drag when Doctor Who left Netflix's streaming service and Hulu early this year. I even held off writing a list of episodes you should watch before the series went away in the faint hope that the Doctor might stick around after all.

But went away he did. Forever. And by "forever" I mean until March, aka next month.



There is, however, a caveat to this good news -- Doctor Who will switch tracks and be streaming solely on Amazon Prime. This isn't the first time the series has been available on Amazon's streaming service, but it is the first time it's been only available on their subscription service.

The tweet above shows a video revealing that seasons 1-8 of the series will be available but says nothing of the classic series. It also remains to be seen if seasons 1-4 will be in standard definition or the streaming will be sourced from the upscaled Blu-ray versions of those seasons. I've reached out to Amazon; if they get back about these details, this article will be updated.

Do you have Amazon Prime? Moreover, if you don't, would you be willing to subscribe to the $99/a year service to have access to Doctor Who again?
