When Doctor Who returned in 2005, the way television programmes were sold and supplied had changed significantly since 1989 when Doctor Who had last been in the BBC's catalogue: the exchange of 16mm film or video tape was a thing of the past, and programmes were provided and broadcast in a digital format usually via satellite. The digital format made simultaneous broadcasting to a much wider audience across continents possible.

Some of the satellite and cable stations served a number of countries across large regions or continents at the same time, so instead of itemising the New Series solely on a country by country basis, we have separate tables for multiple-country transmissions.


NOTES ABOUT THE TABLES:

  • For the sake of simplicity, we are concerned only with the primary broadcaster in each country; in a few cases we have also identified any secondary provider/s
  • Some stations provided programming by way of an internet or IPTV service. These have not been noted in every case
  • A number of the foreign stations purchased rights for numerous repeats, and recycled the series on a continuous basis; it would be impossible to account for every first screening and repeat, so the dates recorded here are for the first episode only of each new series
  • Christmas Specials: In the majority of cases, foreign broadcasters aired each Christmas Special in the year after the initial UK broadcast - e.g. the 2005 Christmas Special was screened elsewhere in 2006; the 2006 Special in 2007, etc - and therefore with the exception of the 2012 Special the airdate of each of the Christmas Specials is recorded along with the subsequent series; the 2012 Special, which aired in five countries in December 2012 is instead recorded in the column for that year
  • The column headed SP(2009) includes "The Next Doctor" (2008), the three extended episodes that aired in 2009 and "The End of Time Part Two" (2010); the airdates for all five episodes are recorded where known
  • With Series 6 being split in half, we have listed the start date of each half where known
  • If a column does not contain any dates, that does not necessarily mean the relevant Series did not air; if anything, the absence of dates is simply because we do not know what they are. But when it is known that a broadcaster did air only a limited run, this is noted in the Notes column
  • Much of the data has also been adapted from Wikipedia's list of "International sales". That list is too general in its approach and has a number of errors, so we've done our best to check, clarify and verify all the stations identified in that list first
  • For a far more detailed analysis of foreign broadcasts of the New Series (as well as Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures), we recommend the THIS WEEK IN DOCTOR WHO INDEX as a starting point. (And to make things easier, we've added a direct link to the THIS WEEK IN DW page in which each country appears for the first time in the TWIDW guide.)

Index of BBC Entertainment channels
  • The BBC operated a number of satellite and cable stations across different regions of the globe. Initially known as BBC Prime (see our dedicated page), the network was later rebranded as BBC Entertainment (Official Website). Each region carried its own scheduling, but on occasion – and as such applied to Doctor Who - programming across all stations and regions was synchronised so that the same programme was broadcast simultaneously. In most cases, the programme was broadcast in English, although some countries had the facility to broadcast with subtitles:

OTHER SATELLITE & CABLE STATIONS (MULTIPLE COUNTRIES)

  • For some countries, particularly in Europe and south east Asia, the relaunched series of Doctor Who was available on cable or satellite stations that served multiple countries at the same time; while some of the following also had a domestic station carrying the series (see above), for many, "pay-per-view" was the only means by which they could see the brand new Series.
