Doctor Who fans worldwide are getting excited ahead of Sunday’s unveiling of the new doctor.

Jodie Whittaker was revealed to be taking over from Peter Capaldi as the Thirteenth Doctor back in July 2017 and fans of the sci-fi series have had a long wait to see the first female incarnation of the iconic role.

Whittaker’s very first outing was in the show’s Christmas special episode, but her full debut as the Doctor will come on the October 7, with the show moving to Sunday nights on BBC One for the first time since its revival in 2005.

It’s good news for Whovians around the world, who are already expressing their excitement on social media.

With every Doctor Who fanatic delighted about the start of the new series, everyone is wondering: what’s the best way to watch the new series?

How can I watch Doctor Who Series 11 online for free?

If you’re based in the UK, it couldn’t be easier. The show will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer as soon as it airs on BBC One at 6.45pm GMT. As long as you have an up-to-date TV licence, you’re all set.

It’s also available in the US on BBC America – a subscription television service which is co-managed by the BBC and the American broadcaster AMC. Since the broadcast will be synchronous with the UK’s, it will air at 1.45pm (12.45pm Central Time Zone).

Are there other ways to stream the new series of Doctor Who?

Every other series of the show has eventually been available to purchase on Amazon, so if you can stand the wait, that provides one other option for watching the show, although not during its live broadcast. So, you might have to fight your way past a lot of online spoilers in order to keep the surprise alive before it comes to the platform.
