Classic Who on the Horror Channel

BBC Worldwide has agreed to allow the Horror Channel to broadcast 30 episode of the classic series on Easter weekend. These include An Unearthly Child, Genesis of the Daleks, The Curse of Fenric, and The Mind Robber among others. The event will start on Good Friday with An Unearthly Child and continue throughout the weekend with one story from each Doctor. After that, there will be daytime double-slots and evening single-slots on weekdays.

Director of programming Alina Florea said
Doctor Who is an iconic series and we are proud and excited to welcome this giant of British television to our channel. The line-up will include some of the most revered from seven classic Doctors – stories that terrified, thrilled and captured the imagination of children and adults through the decades. Doctor Who joins a long line of well-loved classic series we have endeavoured to showcase on Horror Channel over the last few years.
Sam Tewugwa, Commercial Director of TV and VOD Sales at BBC Worldwide said
This is a great new way for fans to enjoy classic Doctor Who stories. Our discovery of missing episodes of Doctor Who last year highlighted the fans’ appetite for classic episodes to be made more widely available and we’re delighted to be able to extend that through the series available on the channel
