Whovians, rejoice! Horror Channel will air remastered episodes of classic Doctor Who and we couldn’t be happier!
These seventeen remastered episodes were released on DVD by BBC Worldwide last year, and will be shown on TV for the very first time on Monday October 13th on Horror Channel.
On these episodes we will see the Doctors: Tom Baker, Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy.
This broadcast will start with the “Doctor Who and The Silurians” serial, with Jon Pertwee as the Doctor. This series will then lead into weekday double-bills in daytime and evening slots.
Among the episodes we will catch on Horror Channel are “Inferno”, “Carnival of Monsters”, “The Time Warrior”, “The Sontaran Experiment”, “The Sunmakers” and “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy”.
“It’s been great to be able to offer our regular fans the classic Doctor Who content, but it’s equally exciting to see Time Lord devotees flock to Horror Channel in greater number and take part in the various on and off air activities that resulted in a surge in viewership and social media interaction. With the newer batch of remastered episodes, there will be even more reasons for our viewers to tune in and stick around for more fright, thrill and shock”, Alina Florea, director of Programming for Horror Channel, said.
Since its launch in April, Who on Horror has had over 3.8m viewers in total. I bet that number will go even higher with these remastered episodes.
As much as I love the current Doctor Who, it’s always good to go back to the classics and enjoy the adventures of past Doctors. After all, each one of them has a very particular style.
Moffat might have left us with permanent psychological damage with his creations, but no one can deny classic Who has some scary monsters too. Hell, the daleks alone are pretty scary to me!
Remember to go to Horror Channel on October 13th to enjoy some classic Who greatness!
