It comes after Dctor Who fans slammed the BBC after a huge change to the sci-fi show was announced ahead of it’s much anticipated new series. 

After it was revealed Ncuti Gatwa‘s first full run in the TARDIS would hit screens on 11th May, it’s now been confirmed the show will no longer air in it’s usual family friendly Saturday night slot.

Instead the show will now be released at midnight on BBC iPlayer, presumably in order stream in the US in the afternoon and evening, after the show partnered up with Disney+.

But fans have slammed the ‘shameful’ decision claiming show bosses had ‘contempt’ for British viewers and was ‘prioritising’ those across the Atlantic. 

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, one furiously wrote:  ‘So the UK fans are now second class to the US. The U.S gets to watch in the late afternoon / early evening while Uk fans to avoid spoilers have to stay up late?!  That’s really poor’.

While a second said: ‘I love pandering to the American audience, I love Disney taking over (This is a lie I hate it) ‘.

And someone else commented: ‘I’m an American and I think it’s insane and disrespectful that Doctor who is airing at midnight in the UK’. 

While another asked: ‘You don’t want UK viewers??? Soon, you will realise that’s a big mistake’.

As another fan typed: ‘As an American, I hate this. Doctor Who is a UK show, and the UK should have the best time slot. This midnight thing is rubbish’. 

A sixth said: ‘Midnight really? What happened to Doctor Who on a Saturday evening? This is just pandering to the US audience’. 

Disney Plus now have international distribution rights for the show while it remains exclusive to the BBC in the UK.

And last year showrunner Russell T. Davies has assured fans that Doctor Who would still the same show and nothing was changing after it became a co-production.

Russell, 60, explained in an issue of Doctor Who magazine: ‘I know people are, naturally, worried about American producers having notes on things.’

 ‘Well, don’t be. They’re giving excellent notes.’

Russell added: ‘And I’m here to tell you, you haven’t watched a drama on British television in 20 years that hasn’t had American notes on it. Everything is a co-production… it’s really, completely normal.’ 

The long-awaited series will release its first two episodes on BBC iPlayer at midnight before arriving on BBC One later that day, ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final.

The new season of Doctor Who will see Ncuti Gatwa return as the Fifteenth Doctor, alongside Millie Gibson as Ruby Sunday, after they made their debut on Christmas Day in The Church on Ruby Road. 

Within the upcoming series, audiences will see the Doctor and Ruby travel through time and space on adventures to unknown lands, to the Regency era in England, to outer space worlds and the sixties. 

This season will also see the return of Michelle Greenidge as Carla Sunday, Angela Wynter as Cherry Sunday and Anita Dobson as Mrs Flood.

The eight-episode series will also feature an array of special guest stars including Jinkx Monsoon, Aneurin Barnard, Yasmin Finney, Jonathan Groff, Bonnie Langford, Jemma Redgrave, Lenny Rush and Indira Varma with more to be announced s
