‘Doctor Who’ episodes to rent on Facebook

Doctor Who coming to FacebookBy Andrew Laughlin, for Digital Spy

BBC Worldwide, the BBC’s commercial arm, has announced plans to rent digitally remastered episodes of classic Doctor Who on Facebook.

Using the new Facebook Credits system, members of the social networking site will be able to visit the official Doctor Who page and stream a selection of nine stories from the history of the Time Lord, each containing several episodes.

The digitally remastered classics include ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’, along with modern day favourites such as ‘Silence in the Library’ and ‘End of the World’. ‘The Greatest Show in the Galaxy’ will be exclusive to Facebook as it has never been released before on DVD.

The episodes will be available for Facebook users in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, with rentals lasting for 48 hours.
