Great news, Whovians (aka Doctor Who fans)! Although we all must wait until October to see the new season, in the meantime, we can binge hundreds of classic episodes beginning next week!

That’s right. Starting May 29, over 500 classic Doctor Who episodes will air on the live streaming platform Twitch. Fans of Gallifrey’s favorite son (well, now daughter), as well as newbies interested to know what all the fuss is about, will be able to travel through time and space the first seven Doctors, from 1963’s An Unearthly Child to 1989’s Survival.

 

This epic Doctor Who marathon goes from May 29 until July 23. The episodes will be screened in blocks three times a day all around the world, and for free! In conjunction with streaming the series, Twitch is also hosting giveaways each week during the marathon, including a grand prize trip to London Comic-Con. 

So, stack up on jelly babies, put your phone on airplane mode, and get ready to enjoy some charmingly wobbly sets and delightfully low-budget effects (and, no joke, some truly brilliant and thoughtful sci-fi writing) as the quirky quasi-immortal time-traveling alien only known as The Doctor and his revolving door of companions battle Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Silurians, Autons, and other bug-eyed monsters. 

The full schedule is available on Twitch. Geronimo!
