Options for renting media online aren’t exactly thick on the ground down under, so this is welcome news: the BBC is going to begin renting episodes of Doctor Who via Facebook from tomorrow.
Here’s the detail direct from the BBC Worldwide press release:
By using Facebook credits, users visiting the official Doctor Who page will be able to stream a selection of nine stories (each containing several episodes) from the history of the Time Lord, including digitally remastered classics such as ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’ as well as modern day favourites ‘Silence in the Library’ and ‘End of the World’. ‘The Greatest Show in the Galaxy’ will be a Facebook exclusive, having never been released on DVD.
After downloading, the episodes will be available for 48 hours. Here’s hoping a few other BBC classic brands hit the list as well. Which shows would you like to see available?
