Silly hats with David Tennant

Netflix US is looking to stop streaming a range of BBC programmes, including Doctor Who.

From 31st January, American users may no longer be able to stream most BBC programmes on their service, if the deal between Netflix and the BBC were to expire at the end of the month.

Doctor Who and Top Gear will be among the shows to be removed, along with others such as Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Coupling and Luther.

This will not affect Netflix users in the UK and Ireland.

An online petition has already been started to save these programmes from being dropped.
