The new channel, featuring a mixture of classic clips and exclusive previews from forthcoming Doctor Who DVD releases, will appeal to existing fans and give new viewers an opportunity to sample some classic Doctor Who. The channel will complement the Classic Doctor Who Twitter account @classicdw run by 2entertain.

Jo Warren, Head of UK & Ireland Sales says, “We’re really looking forward to giving Classic Doctor Who its own home on YouTube. It will be a great space for fans to discuss Classic Who – we’re launching with some fantastic clips and we’ll be regularly adding to the collection!”

Classic Doctor Who Brand Manager Dan Hall comments, “I’m delighted to join forces with our digital team and YouTube. This is an exciting, new way to deliver content for our net-hungry market.”

Classic Doctor Who will launch on YouTube with over 45 clips dating from the first episode, along with new Meglos clips and an exclusive clip previewing the new Doctor Who Meglos DVD boxset which will be released by 2entertain on 10th January. Meglos stars Tom Baker and was originally broadcast in 1980.

    Love Dr. Who but hate that its so difficult to watch the classic episodes. They should be easier to watch and not so restricted!

    For all of you who love Dr Who and the terrific mind of Steven Moffat, head over to the Steven Moffat=Genius Facebook page. The page’s owner and I (Thomas Jennings) are trying to set up a petition to get Steven Moffat to do an internet live chat so that us fans can ask the questions we’ve always wanted. It’s prob a mad idea- but it may just work. Thanks for reading. Click ‘like’ on the petition when you get there! Whovians band together!
