New Doctor Who Season in 4K-UHD

The next season of Doctor Who will be the first to stream in 4K-UHD.

Some specials made under the BBC’s deal with Disney+ already can be streamed in the higher resolution but this will be the first time an entire season can be viewed this way.

Featuring the Fifteenth Doctor, played by Ncuti Gatwa, and his companion Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson), it launches with two episodes on May 11.

You can view the trailer and read the Disney+ release:


Calling across the Whoniverse! Disney Branded Television and BBC jointly announced the premiere date for the next Doctor Who instalment, the first-ever season to launch on Disney+ and release simultaneously worldwide.

Beginning Saturday, May 11, at 12:00 pm NZST on Disney+ in New Zealand, audiences will return to The Church on Ruby Road, which premiered last December, and journey through two all-new episodes.

This season of Doctor Who follows the Doctor and Ruby Sunday through infinite adventures across time and space in the TARDIS.

From the Regency era in England to war-torn futures, the duo champion the forces of good while encountering incredible friends and dangerous foes.

Showrunner, executive producer and writer Russell T Davies said: “At last, it’s my great delight to unleash a whole new season of the Doctor and Ruby’s adventures together. Monsters! Chases! Villains! Mysteries! And a terrifying secret that’s been spanning time and space for decades. Don’t miss a second!”

The previously announced guest cast includes Aneurin Barnard, Anita Dobson, Yasmin Finney, Michelle Greenidge, Jonathan Groff, Bonnie Langford, Genesis Lynea, Jemma Redgrave, Lenny Rush, Indira Varma and Angela Wynter.

Doctor Who is produced by Bad Wolf, with BBC Studios for Disney Branded Television and BBC. Under the creative vision of Davies, the additional executive producers include Phil Collinson, Joel Collins, Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter.

The new season features episodes directed by Ben Chessell, Jamie Donoughue, Julie Anne Robinson and Dylan Holmes Williams.

  1. I’m actually feeling really excited for the new series. I think Ncuti Gatwa will add a lot of fun as the Doctor. I’m looking forward to seeing the Beatles episode 😁👍🏻
