New to Disney+ in November

Indiana Jones fans will have to wait until December 1 to stream Dial of Destiny in 4K on Disney+, and there’s still no word on when the fourth and final season of comedy gem Breeders will surface, but November is still notable for key premieres.

Faraway Downs (November 26) is a series re-edit and expansion of Baz Luhrman’s lumbering epic Australia.

The six episodes will land simultaneously for bingeing.

If you’re unfamiliar with the 2008 original, Nicole Kidman plays an English aristocrat who travels halfway across the world to confront her wayward husband and sell an unusual asset: a million-acre cattle ranch in the Australian outback.

Following the death of her husband, a ruthless Australian cattle baron (Bryan Brown) plots to take her land, and she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle drover (Hugh Jackman) to stop him.

Another period drama, set in 1850s Oz, is The Artful Dodger (November 29).

It relocates the Charles Dickens character, Jack Dawker (the Artful Dodger), to the colony of Port Victory, where his pickpocketing fingers have turned into the skilled hands of a surgeon — until the arrival of Fagin lures him back into a world of crime.

Black Cake (November 1) is another original Star series, about a runaway bride who disappears into the surf off the coast of Jamaica in the late ’60s. Did she drown or is she on the run for the murder of her husband?

A Murder at the End of the World (November 14) is billed as a FX “mystery series with a new kind of detective at the helm: a Gen Z amateur sleuth and tech-savvy hacker”.

Brawn: The Impossible Formula 1 Story (November 15) is a four-part Star docuseries while Star movie Quiz Lady (November 3) concerns a brilliant but tightly-wound game show-obsessed young woman and her estranged, train-wreck of a sister who work together to help cover their mother’s gambling debts.

Also of note is the first of three Doctor Who specials starring David Tarrant: The Star Beast (November 26). Due next month are Wild Blue Yonder (December 3) and The Giggle (December 10).

  1. Any word on the Doctor Who back catalogue (sic)?

  2. Disney+ not advised of anything beyond the three new specials and next year’s series, Mike. From what I’ve read, the Disney+ deal covers only the content going forward. Rights to older episodes appear to be complicated by legacy regional licensing and different deals for the ‘original’ series and the Russel T Davies reboot. As reported at the time: “Under the landmark deal, Disney+ will exclusively stream all upcoming seasons of the show outside of the U.K. and Ireland, where they will remain with the BBC.”
