Doctor Who has gone from being an old school British TV drama for kids to an action filled Sci-Fi adventure for everyone to enjoy.
Doctor Who has become more and more popular in recent years and has now developed a cult following. Since its new release in 2005 after being off the air for 15 years, millions of viewers in the UK have been tuning in. It is now popular all over the world and not just the in the UK.
The first nine seasons of Doctor Who are available on British Netflix, but so far, season 10 is not available.
If you are watching in the US, sadly, it doesn’t look like season 10 is going to become available on Netflix. The BBC struck a deal with Amazon Prime US, and it looks like they will be exclusively airing season 10 and those to come.
Doctor who is available on Netflix all over the world
Seasons 1 to 9 are available in the following locations: Antarctica, Australia, Cayman Islands, Cocos Islands, Falkland Islands, Fiji, Ireland, Malta, Micronesia, New Zealand, Tuvalu and Vanuatu
Seasons 5 to 9 are available in most other locations, including the following: Albania, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brunei, Cameroon, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Ethiopia, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, India, Iran, Italy, Latvia, Monaco, Nepal, Norway, Romania, Slovenia, South Africa, Turkey
What do I do if I want to watch a season that isn’t available in my country?
Seasons 5 to 9 feature Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi as The Doctor and are available in most countries.
But, if you are looking for seasons 1 to 4 with Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, you won’t be able to watch it using your country’s Netflix. I can hear those of you who can’t access seasons 1 to 4 screaming in pain right now.
But don’t worry; there is a way round it! You can get your fix of David Tennant another way.
Say, for example; you wanted to get access to New Zealand Netflix in the US, or get US Netflix in New Zealand. You can trick Netflix into thinking you are in a different country without having to jump on a plane.
Flying half way round the world might even be a bit excessive for the most die-hard of Doctor Who fans. You can do this by using a VPN and a smartDNS service. A VPN or smartDNS makes a service like Netflix think you are trying to access Netflix from the country you wish to watch it.
All you need to do is download it, select the country you want to watch Netflix in and you are ready to go.
Some sneaky behind the scenes stuff re-routes your internet traffic to make it look like you are in the UK when you are actually in Sierra Leone.
Neat! So, if you are wondering how to get American Netflix in Australia, this is the way to go about it. Some of the services are free and some you have to pay for, so make sure you do your research.
